Ariana Grande Claps Back At VMAs Reporter Asking About Rumored BF Mac Miller

Ariana Grande's work is nominated at this Sunday's MTV VMAs for Best Pop Video, Best Female Video, Best Collaboration, Best Editing and Best Cinematographer.

She's also performing during the ceremony.  BUT YA GIRL GOT A NEW BOYFRIEND THIS WEEK, SO FUCK ALL THAT, I GUESS.

In a red carpet interview during MTV's pre-show, the 23-year-old pop star was asked about her new relationship with Mac Miller, primarily why he wasn't on her arm this evening.

She replied,

It's OK to be alone, even when you have a boo!


I live to shout on your behalf, mama.

All your fans thank you for this spiritually transcendent 11-word sermon on independent womanhood.

FINALLY SOMEBODY SAYS IT. #VMAs — Anna Moeslein (@annamoeslein) August 29, 2016
Why did Charlemagne the God just bring up the donut situation and who Ariana is dating? That was annoying. I'm glad she changed the topic — ariana (@thebasedbieber) August 29, 2016

Tonight, when we women return home to update our feminist icon notebooks -- you know, the ones we all keep full of photos of Gloria Steinem, Oprah, Bell Hooks, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and all their wise words -- we may consider adding Ari's quote.
