Is Ariana Grande A Gay Icon? Comments (0)

Three days ago, Billboard published a piece arguing, with eight sensible points to support the claim, 6a0120a90ac194970b01b8d0c62101970c that Ariana Grande is the gay icon of her generation.

Casting aside arguments about what constitutes her generation (like, is Lady Gaga really of a previous generation?), and whether there is only one per generation, do you think this is accurate?

I have nothing bad to say about her, and she is definitely pro-gay, but I don't think of Ariana specifically in these terms. I'm not sure if there IS a gay icon anymore, so much as there are icons who gays love (of which Ariana is surely one).

Like, Judy, Donna, Madonna, these are people who were and are adored by (many, not all) gay people for their talents but also for their specifically gay appeal. I'm not sure many if any new stars these days have that — maybe the latest I can think of would be Gaga, who has spoken directly and specifically to and about gay people.

Am I wrong?

Britney Spears, Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Sia & More Pop Luminaries Pen Love Letters To LGBTQ Fans For Pride Comments (0)

Billboard cleverly asked dozens of pop luminaries to write love letters to the LGBTQ community for Pride Month, and the results are engrossing, to say the least.

Britney Spears responded with a handwritten note — millennials, she knows cursive — in which she states:

This is my letter of love to all my LGBTQ fans. Continuously throughout my career, you've always been so vocal about what a positive impact I've had on you — that I've instilled joy, hope and love in you at times when there was none. That my music is an inspiration. That my story gives you hope. But I have a secret to share w/you. You see, it's actually you that lifts me up. The unwavering loyalty. The lack of judgment. The unapologetic truth. Acceptance! Your stories are what inspire me, bring me joy, & make me and my sons strive to [be] better people. I love you. Britney

Nice!
