Ariana Grande was not here for allegations that she uses auto-tune.
Ariana Grande is a woman of many talents.
Besides the fact that she can sing like a goddess and capture a crowd’s attention with ease, she’s also pretty good at coming up with the sassiest of comebacks.
Take her previous takedown of Piers Morgan, for example. After Morgan suggested Little Mix were “using nudity to sell their albums,” Grande took straight to Twitter to put him in his place, writing: “Women can be sexual AND talented. Naked and dignified… I say this with all due respect but thank u, next.”
Now, you’d be forgiven for believing that this is Grande’s finest comeback ever – and maybe it was, until this weekend, when she was forced to respond to trolls’ auto-tuning claims.
Commenting under a since deleted video of Grande performing on her latest tour, one user criticised the performance by suggesting that the singing was autotuned and “probably not live”.
“It sounds like autotune and [is] probably not live,” the comment read. “I mean you are a great singer and I love your voice and songs, but this doesn’t sound live.”
Grande was having none of it – and she promptly put the accusations to bed.
“With all due respect, I could do this in your living room for you… with no sound mixing or help at all,” Grande replied.
“I could do it on Broadway (and did),” she continued. “I can do it in the shower. In the car. It’s my gift. It’s why I’m here.”
In true Grande fashion, the response came to an end with a sassy assertion of her self-confidence.
“I sing 30+ songs a night, every word,” she wrote. “It’s my thing. Let me shine.”
You just keep doing you, Ariana.
