The 25-year-old was bombarded by curious fans about her sexuality after her song with Victoria Monet came out. Monet confirmed her bisexuality back in November 2018 and fans think this might be Grande’s attempt to do the same.

Grande replied to a fan tweet about labels to answer the questions she was being asked, saying, “i haven’t [labelled myself] before and still don’t feel the need to now which is okay.”

Sources told Contact Music that “‘[Ariana] is of course a well-known LGBT ally and this is her supporting her friends.” Grande is also the headliner of this year’s Manchester Pride, which caused some backlash online as fans spoke out about someone who is known to be straight headlining a tour. The city of Manchester is meaningful to Grande because that was where her performance was attacked by a bomb.

Addressing the controversy online, Grande said, “The LGBTQ community has been so special to me and supportive throughout my entire career. The relationships I have with my LGBTQ fans, friends, and family make me so so happy. I want to celebrate and support this community, regardless of my identity or how people label me. And also I wanna visit a city that means so much to me. LGBTQ representation is incredibly important, and I’m always proud to share the stage with LGBTQ artists!”
