Grande's fans turned the topic into a bigger conversation about coming out in general.
Ariana Grande's latest single started a conversation on Twitter about sexuality and labels.
It all began on Monday when the singer debuted "Monolopy" -- a new song and music video in collaboration with her friend Victoria Monet. On the track, Grande and Monet, who is openly bisexual herself, both sing, "I like women and men."
The lyric threw Arianators into a frenzy, as many speculated the pop star had come out as bisexual. After fans started to discuss the topic on Twitter, Grande said she didn't feel the need to label herself.
When a fan wrote, "ariana ain't gotta label herself, but she said what she said," the pop queen responded: "i haven't before and still don't feel the need to now which is okay."
The "7 Rings" singer also responded to another person who joked that they wanted to get "I like both women and men" tattooed on themselves. "Everyone does," she tweeted in reply.
i haven't before and still don't feel the need to now 🖤🧚🏼♂️ which is okay
Meanwhile, Grande's fans turned the topic into a more meaningful conversation about coming out in general.
"hope y'all know sexuality is fluid and no one has to 'come out' as anything if they don't want to," a person wrote and another added, "Labels and coming out shouldn't even be a thing but anyways I'm so proud of Ariana and I'm glad she feels comfortable tweeting us about her sexuality now even though she's never needed to."
