Ariana Grande Sorry for Implying Weave Will End Racism

This is a grande mess.

It hasn’t even been seven days since Ariana Grande dropped her latest single “7 Rings” and the track is already caught up in controversy.

On the song from Grande’s forthcoming fifth album, the songstress sings, “You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it/I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it.”

Grande shared a screenshot of a fan’s post with the line and quote that read, “white women talking about their weaves is how we’re gonna solve racism.”

Grande swiftly removed the post, but nothing is ever gone from the web, is it?

When the post was shared by The Shade Room, Grande left an apology in the comment section.

“I think her intention was to be like… yay a white person disassociating the negative [stereotype] that is paired with the word ’weave’,” she said. “However, I’m so sorry if my response was out of pocket or if it came across the wrong way,” she continued. “It’s never my intention to offend anybody.”
