During a recent Ariana Grande radio interview, sexism was front and center.
DJs Justin Credible and Eric D-Lux, of Power 106 in Los Angeles recently welcomed Ariana Grande for an interview. Instead of asking the award-winning singer and actress about her career or important issues, the DJs bombarded her with demeaning and sexist questions.
"If you could use makeup or your phone one last time, which one would you pick?" they asked her.
Grande answered with the perfect response.
"Is this what you think girls have trouble choosing between?" she said.
"Yea," the radio DJ said. "Absolutely."
The DJ continued with the silly questions by asking Grande if she went anywhere without using her cell phone. Grande said she doesn't use her cell phone while at the dinner table.
One DJ immediately said, "listen and learn, ladies."
"Boys, learn," Grande countered.
The discussion then turned to emojis, specifically the new unicorn emoji. The DJs said that only girls use the unicorn emjo, but Grande argued that boys use it too.
“You need a little brushing up on equality over here,” Grande said.
The DJs refused to change their sexist stances. Grande said, "I changed my mind. I don't want to hang out at Power 106 anymore."
The hosts begged her to stay.
Grande concluded her radio interview with an incredible speech about changing the world.
"I have a long list of things I'd like to change," Grande said. "I think, judgement in general. Intolerance, and meanness, and double standards, misogyny, racism, sexism…There's lots we've got to get started on. That's what we need to focus on. We have got work to do."
Then she pointed to the DJ and said, "We'll start with you, though."
