Ariana Grande’s never labeled herself before and she’s not gonna start now.
After a line in the 25-year-old singer’s latest single, “Monopoly,” which features her best friend Victoria Monet, caught the attention of her fans, Ariana took to social media to address speculation about her sexuality.
On Monday, the “7 Rings” singer dropped the new track, which features a lyric in which she and Victoria sing: “I like women and men.” Many took the line as Ariana’s way of coming out as bisexual. However, the “thank u, next” singer set the record straight on Twitter.
When a fan tweeted that Ariana “ain’t gotta label herself, but she said what she said,” she wrote back: “I haven’t before and still don’t feel the need to now 🖤🧚🏼♂️ which is okay.” She then additionally liked fans’ tweets about sexuality being fluid.
“hope y’all know sexuality is fluid and no one has to ‘come out’ as anything if they don’t want to. happy monday,” read one of the tweets Ariana “liked.”
Victoria – who came out as bisexual in 2018 – also addressed speculation about Ari’s sexuality as she later wrote, “She said what she said.”

As fans know, this isn’t the first time people have speculated about Ariana’s sexuality. Earlier this year, she released the music video for “break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored,” which ended with her leaning in to kiss a girl, and many also took that as her way of expressing that she’s into both guys and girls.
