Kid Rock 1, Ariana Grande 0 - Christian Post
"...After the negative reaction, Grande issued two lame apologies. In the first one, she said her anger was really directed at the obesity problem in America. In the second apology, she said that her comments were a "poor choice of words."Of course, she would have never apologized if the video had not gone viral. She is the latest in a long line of "stars" that show hatred toward the people who made them rich. Americans made this young singer a millionaire and without the support of her fans, she might be working in that doughnut shop today.Too many celebrities like Ariana Grande are self absorbed and express no gratitude for their wealth and fame. It is even worse when they couple such ignorance with hatred toward this great country. If Ariana Grande "hates America" so much, she is welcome to move to Saudi Arabia, Libya or Oman. Let's see how she likes the conditions in those countries. In much of the Muslim world, Grande would be treated like property and not allowed to vote, drive, express an opinion or leave her house without being covered in traditional garb head to toe...." see full article

The REAL Problem With Ariana Grande That No One Is Talking About - Refinery29
"...Social media can provide celebrities an avenue through which to appear unedited and genuine, to pushback a media narrative they don't like. Grande successfully used the tools at her disposal when she shared her well-received post about facing misogyny. But nothing feels more genuine than the sort of raw, candid footage captured of Grande in the doughnut shop especially footage that seems to confirm what has long been rumored: that she is difficult and prone to rude behavior. That's something the star is finding harder to combat. ..." see full article

Ariana Grande Tries to Put Her Donut-Licking Scandal Behind Her With a New ... - Mic
"...Short of Grande getting escorted off stage in handcuffs, it seems impossible that Donutgate could get any more absurd. Grande seems to have learned her lesson. "I made a mistake and I'm being judged for it, which I understand because I watched it and I was just as disappointed with myself," she said in Thursday's video apology. "I'm going to learn from my mistakes ... That's how we grow. We just have get better and actually act on it." Can we forgive her now, and end this absurdity?..." see full article

Ariana Grandes doughnut scandal is an important reminder: The cameras are always watching

"...After the video went viral, it was announced Grande will no longer headline this weekend's MLB All-Star Game Concert while some speculated it was because of the doughnut controversy, Grande says it's because of emergency wisdom teeth surgery. Honestly, it doesn't matter. This particular incident will blow over soon enough, and Grande can turn to her 30 million Twitter followers for comfort. But it does illustrate an important reminder for celebrities in particular: The cameras are always watching, even in very mundane places where you might not expect them...." see full article

In Defense of Ariana Grande
"...Ariana Grande did a dumb thing. She may or may not have licked a donut or two at a donut shop. Was it a mistake? Definitely. If she licked the donuts (and then did not purchase said donuts), then other customers might have bought and consumed contaminated goods. If she did not lick the donuts, it's not a good idea to hover that close to other people's food. Nobody likes germs, even pop-star germs.Ariana Grande is 22 years old. That's too old to be giggling through donut-licking dares with a crush, but 22-year-olds also do dumb things. I was a senior in college when I was 22, and I did stuff that was a lot more boneheaded than putting my tongue on someone else's pastries. I'm sure a lot of you have, too!That's not an excuse of Ariana's behavior, but an admission of reality. If you're reading this and are not 22 yet, please believe that you will do something pretty dumb when you're 22. You'll probably have the good fortune of not seeing it plastered on TMZ...." see full article

Ariana Grande Randomly Licks Donuts She Didn't Buy Before Proclaiming, 'I Hate America'

"...No wonder Ariana Grande's mom thought she was going to grow up to be a serial killer based on her childhood antics, because, seriously, who does this?  And by this we mean get caught on camera licking donuts that you haven't bought while the store's employees aren't looking (and maniacally laughing, because you think you got away with it).Because that's exactly what little Ms. Grande did while at Wolfee Donuts in Lake Elsinore, Caliornia, on Saturday. Her new boyfriend, Ricky Alvarez, is also seen licking donuts that aren't his in security footage obtained by TMZ, before the young couple, (who apparently find this renegade behavior romantic) started kissing...." see full article

Heres Why Ariana Grande Is A Spoiled, Donut-Licking Bitch Who Hates America
"...Turns out, singer Ariana Grande is a spoiled donut terrorist who hates America and the people who live here. That's pretty much everyone reading this right now.Surveillance video from a donut shop shows Ariana Grande and her boyfriend licking and contaminating donuts on the shop's shelves, cussing at an employee when she offers the couple some donut samples from a fresh batch, and then Grande yelling What the f*** is that? I hate Americans. I hate America at the employee. On the fourth of July, nonetheless!You unpatriotic, little donut-licking diva...." see full article

Ariana Grande Licks Doughnuts, Angers The Entire Internet
"...On Saturday, Grande visited the doughnut shop with her backup dancer / rumored boyfriend Ricky Alvarez. The two seemingly dared one another to lick the doughnuts sitting out on the counter. Now, it's hard to tell if their tongues actually touched the doughnuts, but the way Grande screams and laughs seems to confirm that it definitely happened. Whatever the case, the singer ruining some perfectly good-looking doughnuts, which most people would've gladly consumed with a hot cup of coffee, is so not cool. Doughnuts are for consumption, not for ridiculous dares. Let's show them some respect.If that isn't enough, the 22-year-old can be heard saying (after a fresh tray of doughnuts is brought out), What the f k is that? I hate Americans. I hate America. Whoa, Ariana, what did the innocent doughnuts ever do to you? ..." see full article

Ariana Grande Wants To Make Clear That She Doesn't "Hate America"
"...We get it: We all say things when we think no one is paying attention that we wouldn't want blasted across the internet. But there was definitely something patronizing and even shaming about Grande's comment. Even she's admitting to that. As Grande told Fox, she made the comment because she was frustrated by "how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health."We'll give her props for one thing: She's doing an admirable job of trying to spin this ugly little moment. But at the end of the day, she was hanging out in a donut shop. What was she expecting to find there, raw broccoli?..." see full article

3 Cheers For Ariana Grande, Americas Newest Sweetheart
"...You know when she woke up from her bender to the frantic calls of her public relations team that she wondered how to avoid the storm that was coming her way. She handled it all so well that there is nothing to do but laugh and applaud.First she had to deal with the fact that she was scheduled to headline a concert for the Major League Baseball All-Star Game festivities. Her team announced that she had to pull out because she forgot she was having wisdom tooth surgery Monday. And that totally sounds believable and not in any way something people would make up to protect a star who was in the middle of a public relations meltdown. Demi Lovato, who has not publicly licked donuts that don't belong to her, will take her place.But it's how she dealt with her hatred for her country and its inhabitants that is really hilarious. Here's her very Millennial, run-on, subliterate, but at the same time brilliant, response:..." see full article

Ariana Grande Apologizes for Her Disgusting Donut-Licking Stunt -- But No One's Buying It
"...The "Problem" singer may be famous for her diva-like ways, but this time her behavior in a California donut shop went way too far -- and she sort of knows it. Earlier today, Ariana Grande tried to make amends after she was caught licking donuts on a tray while employees were looking the other way.Of course, the potential licking (we wish we were at Lake Elsinore's Wolfee Donuts to see if there was actual tongue-on-donut action!) wasn't her only offense. The 22-year-old was also caught on camera with her backup dancer and rumored new beau Ricky Alvarez giving quite a July 4 tongue-lashing to a fresh tray of the confections. "What the f--k is that? I hate Americans. I hate America," she says...." see full article

Why Is Ariana Grande Licking Doughnuts Anyway? - Vanity Fair
"...I mean, licking goddamned doughnuts and then speaking ill of America and her beautiful peoples? That's some peculiar, unsettling behavior. But what demonic motive could be behind all this? Well, Page Six tells us that the Riverside County Department of Environmental Health is now investigating the doughnut shop, trying to determine why the doughnuts were left out in the open for customers to lick or otherwise befoul. Grande is not being investigated, the doughnut shop is! So perhaps all of this mysterious, ominous behavior was all in service of getting one doughnut shop in Riverside County shut down, or possibly just fined. Why would Satan dispatch a minion (not that kind of minion, come on) for such a seemingly petty mission? Well, who can know the heart and mind and howling soul of the Morning Star? There is likely a grand (Grande), devious plan at work here, and we can only hope to have long been bones in the earth when it finally reaches completion...." see full article

Here's A Brief History Of Ariana Grande's Worst Diva Behavior - UPROXX
"...If a diva is a female version of a hustler, then Ariana Grande is my favorite hustler. When did being a diva become such a negative thing? I blame VH1, as I do for most things in life.Say what you will about Grande's music, but she's a refreshing change of pop-star pace from Taylor Swift's earnestness and Flaming Lips collaborator Miley Cyrus, who's been acting like an Amish teen on Rumspringa since being freed from the Disney vault. In short, she's great.Don't knock Ariana for being a diva. Be happy we have a mini-Mariah in the making. Here are her worst (or best, depending on your perspective) moments...." see full article
