    22 Times Ariana Grande Was Actually Pretty Damn Surprising

    If you think she's just a pop diva with a penchant for cat ears, you probably haven't seen what she's really like.

    In case you weren't aware, this is Ariana Grande. You may know her as a pop sensation with a penchant for cat ears.

    And an all round diva.

    But there's actually a lot more to her than that.

    1. First of all, she's not afraid to call reporters out on their shit. And is pretty funny with it.

    2. In fact, she's an expert at this, and even uses sexist questions about her "hooking up with a lot of people" to plug her new album.

    YAAASS Ariana.

    3. In fact, her sense of humour only highlights how damn stupid some of the questions put to her are.

    4. Like, really. Come on now.

    5. And when she's done shutting down reporters, she comes home and puts on a onesie, just like the rest of us.

    6. And she'd far rather be chilling in PJs than partying at the club.

    7. She's not afraid to poke fun at herself – and totally nails this very real scenario at the same time.

    8. As well as this one.

    9. She stands up for women at every possible turn.

    10. And is sick of being referred to as a guy's ex, girlfriend, or potential girlfriend instead of a goddamn human.

    11. And she won't stop until women are viewed equally to men.

    12. She has absolutely no qualms about schooling sexist radio hosts, either.

    And ended the interview perfectly.

    13. Even her mum gets involved in highlighting sexism.

    And they make the best patriarchy-slaying duo. 👏

    14. She perfectly explains the struggles women feel every day.

    15. And isn't afraid to write essays calling out body-shaming.

    here we go again.... Sure I'm not the only 1 feeling this way today!! in case you need a reminder, you're beautiful🌬

    16. She loves her fans so much she's left a giant Sharpie stain on her designer handbag to remind her of them. 💗

    17. She really doesn't care about coming off weird in interviews.

    Q: "Now is it true your mom thought you were going to turn out to be a serial killer?"

    A: "That is true!"

    18. And will readily go into gross detail about her worst habits. 😂

    19. She's so modest that when a reporter told her about all the "complimentary articles" about her online, this was the response.

    20. Ariana at the White House is how each and every one of us would react if standing in front of Obama.

    21. She's proud of keeping her private life private.

    22. And, finally, she is the only celebrity who would answer a question about Christmas like this.

    Keep slaying, Ariana. 🙏
