Ariana Grande Is Handling This Nude Photo Leak In The Dumbest Way Possible

Ariana Grande flipping her hair GIFIf you’ve ventured outside your undersea cave dwelling in the past few days, you’re aware that there was a massive leak of celebrity nudes on Sunday. And as much as I promised myself I wasn’t going to weigh in on how the celebrities affected chose to handle it, that was before Ariana Grande opened her mouth.

Now, I haven’t seen her photos, because I made the decision not to look, as I hope all of you did or do as well, so I don’t know if they’re real or not. It does seem likely, though, considering that reps for other victims such as Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton have acknowledged that they are real with strongly-worded statements identifying their theft as the criminal violation of privacy that it is. But Ariana’s rep has gone in a completely different direction, telling BuzzFeed in an email:

“The photos are completely fake.”

Okay, sure, I can definitely understand wanting to shift the focus, and maybe the photos really aren’t of Ariana. Like I said, I don’t know because I didn’t look, and I don’t have an expert eye for Photoshop regardless. It certainly makes sense for Ariana to want to distance herself from this, given that her image skews so strongly to younger fans, but the part that doesn’t make sense is Ariana saying she’s hotter than the girl who appears in the photos…whoever she is.

I can’t imagine Ariana really wants people to go look at the photos, but that’s exactly what this tweet encourages them to do. Regardless of whether the photos are of you or not, this hacker is distributing them as if they are, and that crime is the one we should be focusing on here. Not whether your ‘lil ass’ is cuter than the one in the photos. That’s irrelevant in this situation, and minimizes the violation that’s taken place here.

Cool Ariana. Thanks as always for your insightful feedback.

      Gosh, I really, really, really dislike her. Her views are so downright stupid, and she seems SO FAKE. But I guess what really puts me off is that nothing she does, ever, reaches her eyes. They’re so…lifeless. That, and that godforsaken ponytail.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        She’s got some secrets in there for sure. And based on the nonsense that already comes out of her mouth, I’m positive that I don’t want to hear them.

      • Jael

        Lol am I the only one that finds the constant batting of her lashes irritating and distracting in an annoying way.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        No you are not.

    • FemelleChevalier

      Sigh. She’s getting less and less appealing in general (personality-wise). How I miss those times when she’s still likable (or at least tolerable).

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        We had no idea those were the glory days.

      • FemelleChevalier

        I think it really was. Now, I guess it’s the “How can Ariana top that thing she said last time that made me scratch my head?” stage, and she’s being consistent so far.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Yeah, she’s really been killing it.

    • M_G

      DEAR GOD, I can’t stand it when ppl typ3 l1ke da keys r 2 hard 2 push. SERIOUSLY. And secondly, this reads like she’s really nervous and trying to distract her fans. Like, “What HAHAHAHAHAHA NO that’s not me at all and also TOUR DETAILS COMING SOON!!!!”

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I know. She must think they’re really dumb.

      • Jen TheTit Whipper

        It takes so much more effort to type like that. I don’t get it.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        It’s a studied ignorance.

      • derpa

        Do you understand that twitter only allows you 140 characters??? Her method of spelling isn’t due to ignorance, it’s just the only way that one tweet will fit. Had she typed Everyone, she would’ve been over the limit by 2 characters. Please think before you say outlandish insulting comments, for that’s the sign of true ignorance.

      • M_G

        …because sending out TWO tweets, or being more concise, that would have been a ridiculous alternative to talking like that, right?

      • Johnny Pozzi

        I think it helps to fit the character limit in Twitter. Every1 is shorter than everyone. u – you, and so on. Those words take up less characters.

      • M_G

        Ehhhh…..maybe. Still annoys me, but I guess that’s a better explanation than “Damn kids! Get off my lawn!”, which is always my initial reaction.

      • derpa

        Copied and pasted, the way she wrote it is the ONLY way the tweet would’ve fit.

    • Quinn

      Isn’t anyone else creeped out by the cute-but-sexy-in-a-weird-toddler-way (those words should never ever go together) she tries to emulate? It’s creepy and weird and I personally don’t find her talented at all-her voice reminds me of the voice that comes from pop stars when cartoons make fun of them.

      Also, nothing she does seems genuine and I hate to sound rude, but she seems incredibly unintelligent…has she ever read a book? Like even a Doctor Seuss one?

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Sexy toddler is the perfect descriptor for Ariana Grande.

      • Creative Pros

        This reminds me when a group of comediennes I knew wanted to have the ultimate inappropriate ‘sexy’ halloween costume and dressed up as sexy babies….diapers rattles and all

        I never realized it but Ariana Grande is Abby flynn from 30 Rock

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        You just nailed it, my friend.

      • Van

        You are an annoying hater. You feel the need to bash her at every opportunity, and spread your hate.

      • M_G

        No, she’s not. She’s commenting on Ariana’s unacceptable, diva-like, bitchy behavior. Frankly, I think Alexis is being too nice.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Lit’rally no one has ever said that to me before. Wanna get married?

      • M_G

        Absolutely! As long as there is a taco bar at our reception. That’s a deal breaker.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Oh duh.

      • derpa

        I’m taking this as sarcasm, to which if you HAVE heard this before then there’s something wrong. If someone calls someone a tool, and they respond “Oh, like I’ve never heard that before.” That means they’re such a tool that they’ve been told this on numerous occasions.

      • M_G

        If you could do me a favor and not tell Alexis how she should interpret my comment, that would be SUPER great of you. Thanks.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Do people tell you you’re a tool a lot?

      • Creative Pros

        Nail on head.

    • Audacious Chick

      It couldn’t be possible that they are fake and she letting people know. Why ‘own’ something not yours. I don’t see either of her tweets are encouraging anything.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        She says she looks better naked than the person in the photo — I think that’s encouraging a few things.

      • wispy

        I’m not going to but it makes me want to look at this hideous ass they are trying to pass off as hers.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I can’t imagine it’s actually hideous. And I’m going to stay strong and not look at it! It’s literally the least I can do.

      • Audacious Chick

        She probably does. I think I rather see her naked than hearing her sound like a dumb kid-like brunette, ha ha!

    • Elizabeth Aspen

      Go, I hate Top 40 people. They are just soooooo stuuuuuuuuupid.

    • http://twitter.com/GypsyHeartMark L.M.S.

      Thanks for the promo. #BuyMyEverythingOniTunes

    • tayreneexo

      She’s probably typing like that because she’s on twitter and twitter has a character limit. But whatever the case let her respond however she wants, whatever.

    • Johnny Pozzi

      “minimizes the violation that’s taken place here.” There was NO violation here you sick liberal bastard. This nude photo leak is something to laugh at.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Well, we bigtime disagree on that.

    • StopDissingOnPeople

      She’s not making a big deal out of it like you idiots are. Leave her alone, she was in a nude scam two times now and its so annoying. Im sure you guys will feel the same way. Stop dissing her and get a life!

    • Ant123

      She has the best body i have ever seen, you seen those pictures? 110% positive publicity

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I didn’t look, and I won’t. Not my thing.

    • bonnie

      Yall have no room to talk! Just because she’s put in the spotlight is no a reason to criticize. She has alot of pressure on her, everyone expecting her to be perfect. She is being who she is! And as for that ponytail, she told everyone why she wears her hair like that! Like you or anyone else you have a certain way you way your hair , up ,down , how ever u prefer , you usually always wear it like that! Now back off and cut her some slack!

      • M_G

        “She has alot of pressure on her” Oh? Like, MORE than every single other person involved in this scandal who has handled it MUCH better than this vapid airhead?
