Big Bang Theory Actress Attacks Ariana Grande ‘Does She Sell Lingerie Or Plastic Surgery?’

ariana-sexy (1)ariana-sexy (3)The Big Bang Theory actress Mayim Bialik, 38, attacked Ariana Grande’s clothing on her blog on Kveller.com: ‘The Problem With That Giant Billboard of Ariana Grande. There is one for Ariana Grande, and I will go ahead and admit I have no idea who she is or what she does.

Based on the billboard, she sells lingerie. Or stiletto heels. Or plastic surgery because every woman over 22 wishes she has that body, I’m sure. Why is she in her underwear on this billboard though? And if she has a talent (is she a singer?), then why does she have to sell herself in lingerie?

I mean, I know that society is patriarchal and women are expected to be sexy and sexually available no matter what we do in society, but I guess now I need to explain that to my sons?’

  • ikeepempressedt

    …Its not good to comment on something you know nothing about Ms. Bialik..

  • Cici

    Eh I think people are just confused on how young she looks. It isn’t fair to her, but then again they could style her a little differently?

  • anonymous

    i’m sure she’ll get over it. notice that she blames ‘patriarchal’ society and not ariana

  • http://instagram.com/_rlg Renee

    Hater much? She also wishes she has a body like Ariana

    • Don’tBeADumbass

      As a mother of two young boys, Mayim is not someone who dreams to have the figure of a twelve year old.

      • http://instagram.com/_rlg Renee

        Then what is her problem bashing about someone she doesn’t know about!! Mayim w/e her name is should just sit in a corner, Ariana is a grown woman And can wear whatever she wants

        • Kay

          She didn’t bash her, she gave an opinion about something she was asked of.

          • http://instagram.com/_rlg Renee

            I quote “sells lingerie. Or stiletto heels. Or plastic surgery because every woman over 22 wishes she has that body, I’m sure. Why is she in her underwear on this billboard though? And if she has a talent (is she a singer?), then why does she have to sell herself in lingerie?”

            So talking about some who does pastic sergeries which she does not the lady is assuming things and saying them for thousands to see about a false lie that is not true. Then she goes on and talk about her size.
            Clearly this woman knows nothing about ariana and her physical and mental being

            Obveously I’m a fan so let me defend ariana idk but you soo um bye.

          • SamD

            What is with you Arianators thinking that when someone supposedly bashes one person, you can go and bash them? Two wrongs don’t make a right.

          • http://instagram.com/_rlg Renee

            I feel the way to defend anyone that I like not just ariana. And I am not bashing anyone, if you think I am you’re reading wrong

          • Kay

            The plastic surgery thing is not saying she’s done it, but when her body is shown like that, others may have self-esteem issues thinking that they can’t get a figure that they think is appealing.

          • honesty

            And how is that the fault of the person in the photo?

          • http://instagram.com/_rlg Renee

            How old are you ? Like really ariana is not a sexist wearing skippy clothes to look sexy. Ariana knows less how to look sexy if she tries. She is very tiny she can’t control how good the outfits that she wears for (entertainment) looks on her. And you shouldn’t measure yourself and compare your imagine towards her

          • Kay

            When did I say she was a sexist?

          • Cali

            How in the heck is that her fault?

        • whindy

          shes not just bashing ariana, she simply saw the billboard and it brought up a topic on sending the wrong message to people, now these days artist are wearing less and less and it seems as if nothing will sell unless your wearing barley anything, as if they are selling their bodies. and she wasnt saying ariana has plastic surgery, shes saying that her wearing barley anything is selling the plastic surgery meaning other people will want it because they dont look like her. know there isnt anything wrong with someone having a good body, and working hard for the body you have, in ariana’s case, shes just always wearing this type of clothing, and its not just bashing on her, its literally almost every girl artist sings about ass, or stuff like that and wears barley anything, and it puts a message to girls “if you wear this or have this guys will want you” we should hold ourself up as independent women, women preach on being independent and being feminist, yet singing the songs that they sing and wearing almost nothing sending a message that, if you look like me, have an ass like mine, or curves, guys will want you, and singers should put out stronger messages to women and young girls, as i get older the age of girls getting pregnant is getting lower and lower, and in general its just sad.

    • A

      Mayim is an idiot but I don’t think she wants to have Ariana’s midget body lmao

  • honesty

    If you are going to attack Ariana for being thin, then attack all the other singers, actresses, and models that are thin as well. These women are in no way responsible for other women’s’ emotional reactions when they see their pictures. They just get in front of a camera and do their jobs, not to mention most of them are naturally thin ANYWAY. Also, the clothing is not even that risqué on her body considering that she is petite. She isn’t drawing any attention to any curves or sexualizing herself in any way. Everything she wears is age appropriate. She’s expressed how she’s reserved in that aspect. If this woman bothered to do any research instead of seeing one thing and ranting on like an idiot, maybe she would know that. But no, she’s promoting the look first and judge course of action.

    If you’re going to complain about something, make sure you’re using the right person as an example! Whoever you are, shut the hell up. Stupid.

    • Zaina777

      Well seeing as she has a Phd in Neuroscience which is an extremely hard field to get into. I highly doubt that she’s a ” stupid idiot”. Why are you getting so buthurt over the truth?

      • Angie.

        This isn’t the truth maybe for a hater of Ariana like you but this is an ignorant bitter ridiculous and embarrassing opinion of a fool who had nothing smart to say.

        • Zaina777

          Mayam isn’t a fool at all whatsoever. Ariana doesn’t need to show off all of this sexualized content if she has the talent. Maybe she shouldn’t have made her main fanbase little kids if she wanted to embrace her sexuality.

      • honesty

        I don’t care what she has. Obviously she’s stupid to just jump the gun without doing any type of research. She states that she has no idea who she is or what she does so she should know better than to just speak on a single picture or is that too much common sense for this neuroscience major?

        And I’m not hurt, just slightly annoyed. What part of this, exactly, was truthful?

        • Zaina777

          Everything about it was truthful.

          • honesty

            I usually agree with you, not this time. She has some good points, but the wrong person. That is my ONLY issue, that she used Ariana Grande of all people. Seriously, she has a fourteen year old girls body. If she had big boobs and a big butt, that’s where her clothes would become problematic, but because she does not have a very sexual figure (which is completely fine), you cannot compare her to someone who does. Guys aren’t looking at her with the same eyes they look at Rihanna and Beyoncé with. She is no sex symbol and she hasn’t tried to be. There’s literally nothing wrong with her clothes.

    • Xyz

      Why attack anyone for their body shape? That’s just plain stupid and shows no intelligence or any legit point whatsoever.

    • thecat61

      She’s just a jealous bitch!

    • barbiescunt

      Ariana wasn’t attacked. No one said there was anything wrong with her size. Whether or not clothing is risque is a matter of opinion because clearly her look isn’t conservative. Mayim is VERY educated. Just because her opinion does not match that of your own doesn’t mean she’s ranting on like an idiot. Funny how when normal people have an opinion they’re invoking their right to free speech, however when a celebrity does it they’re attacking someone. -___-

      • honesty

        1) Suggesting she’s promoting plastic surgery because of how small she is IS talking about an issue with her size because it suggests that her size is unnatural, as if no other woman is as small as she is and her size can only be attained through surgery. It also suggests that she, because she is the size that she is, is responsible for making other women feel like they should be the same size, and those women, as a result, are willing to go to extreme lengths to get it. If those aren’t “issues”, I don’t know what is. (This is all regardless of whether she was joking or not.)

        2) If whether or not her clothing is risqué is a matter of opinion, then your statement “Clearly, her look isn’t conservative”, which you presented as a factual statement, would be considered an opinion as well.

        3) I didn’t call her an idiot for having a differing opinion, I called her an idiot for preaching on something with little to no knowledge about whom sparked her rant in the first place. She knows NOTHING about the girl, yet goes on to expand on assumptions that are INACCURATE, which makes the whole purpose and underlying meat of her argument rather dismissive and UNNECESSARY.

        • barbiescunt

          1) This was an opinion of a billboard picture featuring a girl she knows nothing about. Was she supposed to assume she’s a talented singer/songwriter? She sees a picture of a girl, on a stool, with long stiletto heels, in her lingerie; I wouldn’t assume this was a talented singer either. All of Mayim’s assumptions are purposely drastic to convey that there isn’t clear a message from this billboard photo. That the only things that SHE can take from this billboard is that in some way you should be envious or desire her sexually. Not that this a powerful songstress with a talent that can blow half of her competition out of the water. Essentially, she doesn’t understand the purpose of the billboard, if not to promote negative physical and sexual stereotypes of women. But yeah, totally think that this grown-ass woman is a Ariana Grande hater because that makes more sense.
          2) I said whether or not something is RISQUE is a matter of opinion. I did not state likewise is for conservative. Unless you’re reading something I’ve mistakenly typed in my sleep, try again. Or maybe you don’t know what risque means? Here’s the definition: slightly indecent or liable to shock, especially by being sexually suggestive. While a pair of shorts above my knees isn’t considered conservative, it’s doesn’t HAVE to be considered risque. There isn’t anything conservative about wearing lingerie in public, but maybe you don’t know the definition of that word as well. Let me know if I should also provide you with that. And for future reference, every single thing I write here is an opinion unless sited otherwise. Isn’t that obvious or are you really under the impression that you’re arguing with an Encyclopedia?
          3) You actually did call her an idiot for having a differing opinion. Your entire argument is centered around her opinion not matching that of your own. Every single point you’ve mentioned to me is your delusional spin of what she actually said. Suggesting she meant to slander Ariana personally, even though her argument is clearly directed to her management team/recording label. You know, the people that make decisions for her. No matter how you try to spin it, twist it, or flip it; this is a fact. Had Mayim’s opinion of Ariana match your own, you would have completely no argument. Just as Mayim judged Ariana’s billboard for what it is, you’re judging Mayim for what you believe her words to suggest. Therefore if Mayim is an idiot, so are you. If you only knew how intelligent, strong minded, and encouraging towards women she actually is maybe YOU wouldn’t feel so asshurt. So maybe YOU should do some research before attacking Mayim for “attacking” Ariana.

          • honesty

            1) She wasn’t supposed to assume ANYthing. That’s the entire point of this. Otherwise, you’re suggesting it’s okay to throw out invalid judgments based on NOTHING. If you are going to publicly address someone using their NAME, you should probably research that person to make sure you’re RIGHT. Since Ariana is in no way sexual, her comments fall short. Notice that no where in my comments did I call her a hater.

            2) I don’t know what you’re trying to do with this, they’re clearly both a matter of opinion. I know the definition of both words. What’s conservative to me (traditional to my values) may not be traditional to yours, cue the OPINIONS. Your culture is not the only culture in this world.

            3) I didn’t spin or twist anything. I interpreted her statements just as she presented them. Plastic surgery is an unnatural procedure; Ariana is a small girl. Saying she might be promoting plastic surgery because every woman wants to be her size would suggest that she is unnaturally thin, no? Don’t tell me my intent as if you are inside my mind. What you assume from what I’ve written has nothing to do with my actual intent. OBVIOUSLY there would be no argument if we had the same opinion because we would AGREE. Arguments arise from DISAGREEMENTS; you cannot argue with whom you agree. How does that even happen?

            4) For future reference, you should try to be less condescending and address people with RESPECT. Especially when you’re thinking you’re so smart ranting on about how I’m only arguing with her because I disagree -____- but thank you for the speech on common sense. Respect. Try that next time, sweetie. Nobody is angry or “butthurt” here.

            I’m leaving it at this, we can agree to disagree. Goodbye.

      Preach preach

  • idc

    I don’t that the acress is bashing on Ariana herself or her body.
    She’s talking about her style. and I think she hit a point there. Why do you have to wear minimal clothing when it should be about your voice tho? Ariana has an incredible voice but a lot of people get distracted by her style and that’s pretty sad.

    • Angie.

      Why focus so much on how short her skirt is if her voice is so beautiful? You people are the ones who twist everything I swear where’s the logic clothes are made to make them look good but not distract from their talent YOU’RE the one who can’t learn the difference.

      • idc

        because it is simply like that. People are often judged by their style. Their talent is overseen by the way they dress. I, for myself, don’t care about how someone dresses, but there are people who do so there’s no need to lecture me.

        btw I didn’t said anything bad about Ariana. It was simply an neutral opinion on this topic.

        • Mariah

          Just because it’s simply like that it doesn’t mean it’s right it’s completely wrong.

          • idc

            I never said it’s right.

    • Cali

      “She’s talking about her style.”

      But that’s just it most of the time ariana IS covered.
      But one of the few times she strips down a bit people have to come after her.

      Last time I checked she got blasted more for dressing too “young”.

  • Maryam

    This is just bullllllshit. Now, Ariana grande has always had that body. I’m so sick of people shitting on skinny singers/models/actresses. There’s always an assumption that when you’re one of those, and you’re skinny, you’re automatically anorexic or balimic, due to the older generation or even this generation. But just because she’s small, doesn’t mean shit. There are girls who are naturally skinny with fast motabolisms! Jealous much? Secondly, people complain about everything ari does! “She sings terribly!” “She looks like a 12 year old she shouldn’t be doing that!” “Why does she wear her hair like that?! Isn’t she 22?!” “Why does she dress like a child!” What do you want from her?! She dresses her age, and people shit on her. She dresses like a 12 year old and people shit on her! She obviously is an amazing singer, yet people still try and find flaws! She’s beautiful inside and out. She’s a grown ass woman, who can wear whatever the fuck she wants to wear. She can take pictures however she fucking wants to!

    • Zaina777

      Alright…psycho fangirl.

      • Maryam

        No ones a psycho anything. I’m hardly a fan of her. I enjoy her music, and I think she’s a stunning young woman. I’m just sick of people talking about her every second like there isn’t anything else going on in this world.

    • Kay

      Mayim, nor any others, have bashed her body. She was giving an opinion in an interview, relax.

    • Cali

      “She dresses her age, and people shit on her. She dresses like a 12 year old and people shit on her!”

      Exactly. It’s like the public has it set up to where she can’t win. She is one of the more conservative female stars out right now.

      For me personally the majority of the time when I have a problem with over-sexualized female singers is when everyone knows for a fact they can’t sing for shit so they have to strip to make up for it. That’s not the case w/ Ariana and several others so I don’t know what people’s problem is with them wanting to look sexy (speaking in general not just Mayim)

  • Angie.

    I’m SO fucking tired of that ” if you have talent why show off and be sexy ” what is so bad about being sexy and confident why are these hating bastards so focused on looks of someone else ? So someone can be crazy talented but just because they want to be sexy and wear shorter skirts it doesn’t matter ? This logic is so stuck 100 years ago. Why is sex still treated as something so wrong specially if women are being free with it? I’m so sick of this shit. Who cares what is she wearing she is allowed to wear it she’s still not fucking naked her outfits are actually pretty and not vulgar at all she’s still an entertainer and singer and damn good at it. Shut up already! It doesn’t mean someone doesn’t have talent just because they are sexual, they simply might want to do what they want and that’s it.

    • anonymous

      because it’s distracting from more important things

      • Anonymous

        It’s not. It distracts YOU but it shouldn’t. You’re so wrong here as always your comments are ignorant.
        If clothes are distracting you from someone’s soul and personality specially talent you’re the one who’s doing it wrong not them they’re not doing it to impress you they’re doingit cause they want so.

        • anonymous

          it’s a natural response to be distracted, that’s really the point. if she just wore normal clothes no one would recognize her. do you really think she wants to look like that all the time? do you really think she wants to wear the same makeup etc for three years and it wasn’t because her management told her it was a good idea? obviously you know this you’re just so thirsty along with the other girls upvoting you

          • Anonymous

            Lol you’re ridiculous!
            Maybe she doesn’t enjoy same make up or whatever but I’m sure she enjoys and doesn’t mind looking beautiful and fixing her self esteem and confidence with more experience.

          • anonymous

            she’s going to go insane if she’s trying to ‘fix her self esteem’ with makeup

  • Zaina777

    Mayam is right. Show off your talent in the right way.

    • Angie.

      Typical logic of a stuck up little girl.
      If having both why not show both ? What is so wrong with anyone showing off what they want ? Ariana shows off talent and body but people like you who are stuck up and close minded chose to focus only on her looks or what she’s wearing her clothes aren’t even that bad compared to Gaga or Miley which is still their choice to wear and it’s not hurting you.
      Why is it so bad for women to do this and it’s treated like a damn crime and suddenly you have no values or morals if you’re free with your sexuality ? What are we all supposed to dress like ? Like nuns and never say anything sexual and just fit into ‘society’s’ view of what women should act and dress like in order to be ‘good’ fuck that bullshit.

      • Zaina777

        First of all kiddo…I’m a grown woman thank you very much. Now on to Ariana. This girl chose to be criticized. I’m all for embracing your sexiness but with her it’s different. Do you remember when Can’t be Tamed came out Miley wasn’t really criticized because she had a fairly mature upbringing on her show and in real life as well. Had she not fucked it up with her whole raunchy act that she has on now no one would have have two shits about her. Ariana on the other hand had a childish upbring on her shows. You have to remember that before the whole Miley situation there was a certain level of sexiness that was appropriate for kid celebrities to uphold. This girl had an already young look Victorious then she has her own show and she acts like a child. Not even a normal child she acted a plain old idiot. That was a horrible career move because her character wasn’t mature in the first place and then she leaves the show to be front and center and showcase her own acting skills. Ariana has the talent and the potential sex appeal it’s the whole background and main fan base that she has acquired. Unlike Miley she didn’t have the majority of her fans as her age group. Ariana’s main fans are little kids from Sam and Cat. It was her choice to not grow up like Avan did or even Victoria. Two adult females shouldn’t be acting like little kids on a kids channel especially if they’ve been there and done that already. Don’t be mad that she has haters it people who criticize her for how she potrays herself. At least Miley understood her criticism. Ariana acts totally oblivious to hers. The girl chose to be on a kids show and become a role model when she didn’t have to or need to. It’s time for her to face the music like all her peers did at one point. She shouldn’t be allowed to get off Scott free because sh e has talent.

        • Angie.

          I’m not going to bother reading your entire rant cause you keep using same bullshit with “they were on kids shows” as if I was only talking about them my point was women in general getting a hard time for being sexual which is nothing wrong. Have a good day I’m done.

          • Zaina777

            Of course you won’t read it be cause you’re completely bias on everything Scooter Braun related, right? Why would I have a “gold” day? I’m going to have a good day thank you very much. :) Peace man.

      • RiriNAVY

        That last sentence is so true..

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    Okay, opinions and all that stuff but she might as well be talking about the majority of Hollywood. It’s not just Ariana. On another note I do agree about the talent portion. Ariana has talent – talent that she worked for, the gimmicks aren’t needed. She has to figure that out on her own though.

    • Godney

      in my eyes the people behind ariana are selling her the image of “oh you have to be sexy to be taking seriously as a women” when in reality is not like that, she and her team think that wearing those outfits will make her sexy but still dont want to let go the little girls kind of lolita image. Ariana has talent and the little i heard of her album she has good producers and song writters to make her sexy with her voice.

      • JC

        this!!!

      • Marina And My Diamonds

        I agree, her team is wack for that though.

        • Godney

          the fact is that they do not care for later, they just want to cash her out and then be done with her.

    She attacks Ariana who actually has talent and her clothes are nothing vulgar or shocking but doesn’t say anything about Miley,Nicki,Gaga,Keisha etc. This woman is insande and everything she said is stupid and completely ignorant.

      …all of those women did get criticized though

    • Yami

      How in any way did she attack her? She gave an opinion, and now all of you are actually being verbally abusive. You’re the ones in the wrong.

  • lovelylunax

    first off, mayim is no idiot or hater. she was not attacking ariana’s talent. it is the simple fact that yes, you are dressed a certain way that to most of your fanbase is much younger. however, with her vocals. she doesn’t need to try so hard with outfit. this isnt about being skinny or body shaming. its about the patriarchy that we place on women that sex sells and with a voice like hers, it should not solely rely on that.of course, wear what you want but sometimes the clothes is a little much or not enough. say what you want but less is sexy. no one needs to see everything, especially if she can sing like that.

    • honesty

      What part of her body has she revealed though? What is sexual about her clothing? What has Ariana ever done that is even slightly distasteful? I’m asking for specifics. The message may be right to some extent, but Ariana is not the person to go after. Try Beyoncé or Rihanna.

      What this lady’s done is the equivalent to seeing a photo of Taylor Swift in a bra and panties and ranting on about how she’s a whore based on that one photo. Little does she know, how reserved the person actually is. Ariana has stated time and time again that she does not view herself as a sex symbol. NOBODY DOES.

            Thanks oh wise anon. You are trying to turn this into some sort of Misogyny when it isnt .Clearly if you bread properly had common sense and weren’t bias. You would realize I meant that Ariana was told to make out with him by HER music video director. You’re an idiot.

      • Angie.

        Ariana has wore many similar outfits as Beyonce though and Beyonce isn’t that bad either they’re both simply sexy but not distasteful or vulgar but Rihanna Miley and Nicki yes.

          Rihanna, Miley and Nicki aren’t distasteful either. Miley just wants to shock people for the time being. Rihanna is a babe with great style and Nicki is an amazing feminist. If you don’t want people to hate on Ariana then don’t start bashing other female artists either.

          • honesty

            MILEY is not distasteful? Really!?!

          • laura

            She just wants to shock people by doing all this so honestly, I don’t have a problem with it. It’d be different if it was really who she is but even then I wouldn’t mind since it’s her life and I have no right to judge anyone. But that might just be me.

          • honesty

            Right, that may be her intent, but she has been downright filthy. That cannot be denied.

          • laura

            Yeah I’m not denying that but it was rather hilarious to me and she got the attention she wanted so I guess it all worked out for her.

          • Zaina777

            Rihanna used to be really naturally sexy and appealing now it seems like she tries to hard to be what she already was.

          • RiriNAVY

            She’s still naturally sexy some don’t have to force it they just are sexy

          • laura

            Nah I really love her style. Very original and daring and she looks banging every single time. But idk everyone has their opinion on it which is fine.

          • .

            I just have to randomly jump in here and agree with that, her ‘S.O.S’ video, she looked damn sexy, and she was fully clothed!

        • Zaina777

          You should look on Usweekly. They condemn Beyonce a lot on there. I don’t mind her I just thinks she’s a little overrated

          • Anonymous

            You think she’s overrated cause you don’t understand her or her music or message and never actually played attention to her vocals/performances.

            Assuming much? No,I have always listened to her from her Destiny’s Child days. Just because I don’t bow down to her as if she’s royalty doesnt mean I don’t understand her lyrics or her performances. Maybe you should stop kissing her ass.

          • Godney

            i also think beyonce is a little overrated !! o.o
            I really enjoyed her last album but her image is mainly work of her father.

        • honesty

          You’re right. Beyoncé came to mind a little too quickly.

          Omg people okay, I just used the first names that popped into my head. How about Miley Cyrus in her crazy days and Taylor Momsen? There!

          • Zaina777

            Taylor used be cute..Miley used to be normal.

    • Godney

      what people dont see in her words is that she is not shaming ariana for her clothes, she is clearly shaming the people behind her selling an image so sexual with her talent.

      • Mariah

        But why is it wrong to be both talented and sexy? So if someone wants to be respected as an artist and people to appreciate their talent they aren’t allowed to be sexual ? It’s so ridiculous people treat women being sexualized as something so bad if it’s their choice and they do it for themselves it’s completely fine! Sex does sell but why is it so bad as well? Someone with only sex with no talent will never sell as someone with both

        • Godney

          do you see who i stan for right? i am no shaming ariana at all… its clear is HER TEAM is behind it, they know if she doesnt become “sexy” she wont last, and thats the thing.

      • honesty

        What this lady doesn’t see is that Ariana has not been sexualized in the first place. Her clothes and her image are FINE.

        • Godney

          i am not saying that they are not fine, they are great. But her team does sexualize her, you can clearly see it.

          • honesty

            I don’t see it. I really don’t.

  • arianator

    Why don’t people find out on YouTube who Ariana is? Dam folks look so stupid and old talking about someone they never heard of. Now they gather all th negative stories and they think they know her? Ari is on her second album okay?

    • Godney

      you sound so dumb, she literaly said she doesnt know who she and its obv she is not a 13 years old girl spending her time in front of a computer, she has a child, she an intelectual women and someone asked her about ariana and answerer based on a billboard she saw of her.

  • Xyz

    I hate the fact women get so misjudged for showing their sexuality and get called names while guys don’t and only get applauded!!
    I hate this double standard and I’m a guy, all women should be allowed to be what they want and dress how they want without society calling them sluts or whores like do you know the definition of those words? Clothes don’t make person good neither bad.
    Why judge someone so much based on their clothes? Specially considering Ariana’s clothes are sexy but not vulgar at all she only looks young so what!?
    Women and men should all be allowed to express themselves how they want, it’s beyond stupid to judge someone based on only their clothes. Ladies just because a guy is dressed in a suit doesn’t mean he’s a gentleman or a good guy he could be the biggest douchebag, just because a guy is in other clothes doesn’t mean he’s a bad guy and that goes for girls too. Women’s body is a God’s gift and deserves to be appreciated and celebrated in the right way and Aria as not doing it the wrong way.
    Why did society teach you to dress only so men will respect/like you? Men and their opinions don’t define you, but it’s even more sad seeing girls calling EACH OTHER names for their clothes but then going nuts over a half naked guy…everything is so wrong with people’s logic nowadays. It’s sad cause I’ll be probably called gay,ass kisser or a fanboy cause of this.
    My point is equality, no judgement and freedom for both men and women to make their own decisions.

        But she was. If she was so respectful of women she would say it all differently.

        • Godney

          how did she shame her?

  • laura

    I used to love Mayim but idk how I feel about her now. I get the point she is making and yes women do get pressured to be sexy and alluring by the patriarchy but many women also do this because they want to show that only they have control over their bodies and how they look. They own their sexuality. What Mayim should’ve written an article about is how women get portrayed in music videos/songs by male artists or how they get portrayed in magazines for men.
    Anyway, her intentions are good but she’s talking trash about women who claim their sexuality when she should be talking trash about how women get used by men.

    • Nina

      YES I love you

    • anonymous

      you’re literally insane. you believe ariana is not fully trying to exploit her body worse than any respectable male would ask her to

    • Jess

      You don’t know how you feel about her now because of one comment she’s made? She wasn’t rude at all, and all she did was give an opinion on a billboard she saw of Ariana. I respect Mayim for not blowing it up like the website is doing.

      • laura

        I don’t know how I feel about her because she always seemed like an amazing feminist to me and she fucked up because she is blaming women rather than blaming men who use women as sex objects. I’m pretty sure that’s what my previous comment said as well so you might want to read something twice before replying to me again.

        • Las

          Someone’s angry lmao calm down

  • barbiescunt

    Mayim was asked a question and gave an answer. She is 100% correct and does not blame Ariana for anything. If any of you people had an ounce of a brain, you’d be able to read her coherent opinion. I agree, Ariana’s team revamped her look. As a fan, you should be able to see the difference in her style compared to her last album. Her look is more sexualized than before, which is normal. However due to her small frame and adolescent features, Ariana’s new look contradicts her physical appearance. What her team has done to revamp her style is nothing different from any other female artist, so it’s not like Mayim singled her out. Mayim simply answered a question with her honest opinion, and as an educated woman she respectfully disagrees. I also sense a lot of sarcasm in her answer. But let’s be real, Ariana’s new look is awkward and really looks like she’s trying too hard to be sexy. Plus she’s been wearing the same hairstyle since 2012… Lol anyway, I agree with Mayim and hope she doesn’t retract her statement to appease the masses.

    • anonymous

      maybe you can go and have tea with her later too

    • Zaina777

      Thank you. :) People are getting so butthurt and defensive over nothing.

      • barbiescunt

        People are inclined to defend the right women have to sexualize themselves. I’m down with that, I understand that. Women should not be shamed for showing their sexuality. However, I also understand how women are being used as props to sell sex instead of music. Most people who don’t understand that and are so quick to claim someone is “shaming women” it’s ridiculous and frankly ignorant.

        • Zaina777

          I agree completely. Ariana had it when she was at the AMA’s last year. That look was her. Not every single female artist has to be sexualized and some don’t need it at all for example Ariana.

          • Kina

            Looks like you two are the only ones with your head on straight here. I agree with everything y’all have stated. I also respect Mayim! She is very educated and intellectual individual and she’s right.

          • Xyz

            Smh that look was her simply because she was more covered up?
            Also stop with the she doesn’t need to be sexualized, or others who have talent.
            Women are allowed to sexualize themselves by their own decision it doesn’t mean they’re forced to or there’s something they want to distract from they simply want it and not all men look at it in a bad way and think of them as easy or take advantage of it. Once again clothes don’t define so much as you think.

          • barbiescunt

            No one is disputing whether or not she is allowed to be sexy. That’s not what’s up for discussion here. The point is artists these days feel the NEED to sexualize themselves to sell records because sex DOES sell. Mayim has always been openly against this. Why should she not voice her opinion because it doesn’t agree with your own?

          • Zaina777

            That’s not even what I said now was it? No, it suited her overall persona, look and voice. Sexualization isn’t just show skin and your sexualized. You actually have to have it and you actually have to own it. Miley owned in her can’t be tamed era. That girl was sexy. Ariana’s doesn’t seem natural and it’s being forced. It’s because she looks so young and innocent.

            As I said before not all female artist have to be sexualized. It’s degrading and putting a lot of women down.

          • RiriNAVY

            Being sexy isn’t degrading yourself lmao wtf being vulgar is degrading. Being sexy and confident doesn’t say “hey I’m a slut fuck me” wtf? If females want to be sexy themselves they’re allowed to, that doesn’t degrade them it’s people like you who think of sexualization as something degrading and bad. Sex is a natural thing, not something from another planet, if some women don’t want to express sexualization that’s fine too. A woman being sexy doesn’t mean she’s telling others on order to be cool or whatever you have to be like me, women don’t do all of that to impress others or tell them how it should be we should do it for ourselves!

          • Zaina777

            Have you seen some of those music videos? That shit is fucking degrading. I didn’t say any of what you just said. My point is females have gone through a lot of work to get to where we are now. Not every female should be sexualized. Ariana,in my opinion was one of them. She had the potential to become something great in the industry but now all she has become is another sexualized female in the industry yet again just like everyone else. If she had i the “it factor” I wouldn’t be complaining but she doesn’t have “it”. They are just using this talented girl for their own gain. Ariana is doing it because she thinks it’s the right thing to do. She even said it herself like last year she doesn’t find herself sexy and she doesn’t want to be sexy.

          • barbiescunt

            Other than her look being hella awkward for me, I don’t see anything wrong with it. What I don’t understand is why people are trying to deny that the industry sexes up their artists for $$$.

          • Zaina777

            I don’t find her sexy because she’s not owning it as her own.

    • Godney

      yesss!! i saw on twitter people attacking her, like…. did you people even read her answer? Ariana’s team is making her image to be so sexual when she has talent and looks like a 12 years old.

      • barbiescunt

        Exactly! They’re saying she should have researched Ariana during an interview to give an opinion on a billboard. How does that even make sense? Mayim has always been respectful and supportive of women. However she’s openly disagreed with sexualizing herself and other women for the $$. I don’t understand how she’s quickly dubbed a hater for having different morals.

        • Godney

          yess!! if a woman wants to dress sexy its ok, but she knows how the industry is and its quite obvious to everybody that all this new image is not just ariana but her team

      • Zaina777

        That’s the thing. Ariana doesn’t have the it factor and honestly she probably won’t for a long time. I think she’s like Justin when he came out he looked so young for the longest time and now I guess he’s starting to grow into his looks now. It’s just weird because Ariana’s older than him yet she looks younger. When she was curvy she looked her age. Now that she lost weight though she lays more emphasis on how young she really looks because she’s always been petite.

        • Godney

          i also think she doesnt have the IT factor, and her team knows it, thats why the try to sell that image since her other album wasnt this big.

          • Zaina777

            That’s honestly stupid she doesn’t have IT so why makes us think that she has IT?

          • Godney

            i dont know… its so weird to me.. like ok she has a great voice… what else? she doesnt have a huge personality ot a huge stage presence or even music video presence.

          • Zaina777

            The girls far too awkward to be at this stage in her career. I honestly think that she should have had a sophmore album as innocent as the introductory album.After that album then she could have easily made a transition to her now sexy phase in her career.

          • Godney

            yess!!, she should have released an album without image planification besides making her transition.

      • Zaina777

        Awe poor Mayim. I guess the Arianators are giving Beliebers a run for their money.

    • Godney

      Also the fact that people didnt research into Mayim before talking about her is so dumb to me, she is so educated and respectfull of women.

      • Cali

        Why the heck should they research her if she didn’t bother to take the time research ariana? She didn’t care so they shouldn’t either. Seems like a pretty ridiculous double standard.

        She went off of ONE billboard of her so those people went off of ONE comment she made. Fair enough

        • Godney

          because she was asked on one billboard, the respond to her answer i’ve seen from her fans is based on what the gossip sites said about it, no one took the time to see what she was actually saying. THAT is something you do before attacking someone. Also Mayiam was not attacking Ariana so there is no excuse for her “fans” to attack her..

          • Cali

            Whether she was personally asked or not, she wasnt familiar with ariana’s persona as a whole so she shouldn’t have replied using her specifically (the actual issue, no one forced her too) I liked what she wrote but she could of left ariana out, her inclusion makes about as much sense as having Taylor Swift in there.
            Maybe Ariana just liked that outfit? She doesnt dress like that majority of time for it to be because of the “patriarchy”. (course mayim wouldn’t know
            that)

            THIS is what she’s complaining about seriously? nothing is hanging out. looks like a regular modeling picture.freaking gorgeous

  • Ella

    Sigh, I hope Ariana knows by now that not everyone will be on board with the way she looks and that she should just do her and keep it moving because with her it’s all about the voice. Just like how ignorants were hating on Lorde because she didn’t look 17 and had the same hairstyle..she kept it moving, because with her it’s also not about fashion etc…. I saw the new music video with Ari and Chris Brown..and she looks cute with the hair down but so what? Im sure this Mrs. Biyalik will be issuing some sort of apology and saying she didn’t know who this person was, wah wah wah…like everybody else has this past week.

    I kinda find it ironic that she’s a feminist as well, and she’s criticizing how she wants to dress. Isn’t there some holy rule in feminism that it’s wrong to slut shame? I mean that sounds like what she’s doing.

  • Isa

    But what billboard? I mean I haven’t seen any in my area but I would think that the billboard would mention the album release or upcoming tour. Ariana is usually covered up more than her peers so I’d take the comments with a grain of salt.

    She needs stop pull her hair back because her forehead is getting bigger and bigger. Her baby prostitute image is clearly a gimmick to put her name out there, but what pop star doesn’t use them nowadays?

    “I will go ahead and admit I have no idea who she is or what she does.”
    WTF

  • kayla

    Interesting conversation. The most important thing for me is for Ariana to be who she is as an artist. Just be. I do think she has the IT factor but people & maybe her team too, won’t let her be the woman she is.They see her as a cash register as opposed to an artist in progress and the fastest way to the cash is by having a so called sexy image.

    • Godney

      yes this!!!! This was mainly was Mayim was talking. Is the people behind her.

      I also think her team does all this new “sexy lolita” image cus she has a good voice but not the IT to be a pop star

    Not a fan of Ariana, but lady, you were gonna have to explain that to your son anyway. She’s wearing “lingerie” because she wants to. She’s 21. She is entitled to wear the things she wants. Its your problem that you have a problem with it, not her.

  • XaskTaylorX

    Just leave the poor obsessed duck facing selfie girl alone!!!

  • stasha

    You could say that about any number of famous people out there. But Ariana’s clothing is way more cute than sexy. So she definitely wouldn’t be the first person I’d call out for dressing inappropriately. I’ll never understand why people constantly feel the need to make grand comments about things that they (admittedly, in this case) don’t know much about.

  • Eva
  • Pamela Lansbury

    Mayim has something out there that very few people has: BRAIN and TALENT. She is the demonstration that beauty is nothing compare to them (even though in BBT her costumes and make up are supposed to let her appears as ugly as hell, but out in real world she’s really pretty). So, do you think that she give something to you, your comments and even Ariana Grande? I don’t think so…

  • MollyBD

    Why does Ariana always do that ugly duck face? It makes her look like a stupid little girl. Isn’t she 21 or 22?

        Lol I don’t see where I was jumping down her throat. I agreed with a lot of what she said just not entirely HOW she said it. She had an opinion and I had one back that’s how this works.

  • Jenny123

    I completely agree with what Mayim Bialik is saying. If you knew nothing of Ariana Grande’s work and only saw her on a billboard looking the way she does, I’m not surprised people think she is selling some sort of cosmetic or skimpy clothing. I am not unbelievably familiar with her but whenever I see photo’s or videos featuring her she always seems to be pouting and wearing very tiny outfits, which seem to work for her image as a pop star and please her fans immensely, but don’t necessarily help with how people perceive her musical achievements.
