  • American pop star Ariana Grande took to her official Instagram story to repost two videos of the People’s Rally for Philippine presidential candidate Leni Robredo, in which over 100,000 Filipinos gathered and sang Grande’s 2014 hit song “Break Free.”
  • “I could not believe this was real. I love you more than words,” the singer wrote over one of the videos, showing a sea of people wearing pink, the official color of Robredo’s political campaign, while singing her song.
  • Over the weekend, Robredo, who is the only female presidential candidate, also received a nod from Filipino American beauty influencer and social media personality Bretman Rock, who shared his support for Robredo on his Instagram story by reposting photos of her.
  • “The best man for the job is a woman,” he quoted her and wrote, “This statement shook me to the core… My president is a WOMAN.”
  • The “PasigLaban Para sa Tropa Pasig City People’s Rally” marked the biggest “Leni-Kiko” rally across the country, with over 130,000 supporters in attendance.

A video of over 100,000 Filipinos singing Ariana Grande’s “Break Free” while gathered at a ”People’s Rally” on March 20 in support of presidential candidate Leni Robredo in Pasig City caught the attention of the American singer-songwriter herself. 

The pop star took to her official Instagram story to repost two videos of the event.

Ariana Grande Fans Attacked An Asian Writer With Racist Dog Eating Jokes — And Ari Responded

A 27-year-old Toronto-based freelance writer, Roslyn Talusan, was bombarded by racist and transphobic messages and tweets from countless Ariana Grande fans after openly criticizing the singer on Twitter.

The aggressive messages and death threats began flowing in over a period of several days after Talusan responded to Grande’s now-deleted tweet criticizing writers, which read, “People are so lost. one day everybody that works at all them blogs will realize how unfulfilled they are and purposeless what they’re doing is and hopefully shift their focus elsewhere.”

Ariana Grande Tried to Fix Her Japanese Tattoo And it’s Even Worse Than Before

Yesterday, Ariana Grande made headlines with her tragic tattoo blunder which consequently became a viral joke on twitter. The singer’s new palm tattoo was meant to read “7 Rings” to commemorate the success of her single; however, the Kanji symbols “七輪” actually means “sichirin” or a small Japanese BBQ grill.

Twitter users were quick to point out that while the symbols “七” and “輪” mean “seven” and “ring” respectively when standing alone, this unfortunately was not the case when the symbols were put together.

Last night Ariana Grande revealed her new dainty palm tattoo, which was meant to say “7 Rings,” to commemorate the success of her new single. However, native Japanese speakers pointed out in the comments that the tattoo actually meant “BBQ Grill” in Japanese.

Kris Wu is Legit, But This Ariana Grande ‘Drama’ Never Was

Certain stories write themselves too easily. When Kris Wu took up six of the top seven spots on iTunes’ U.S. charts after releasing his debut solo studio album, leaving Ariana Grande’s viral single “Thank U, Next” at fourth, accusations of foul play ran amok on Twitter. Wu quickly dropped from iTunes rankings afterwards. Grande herself ended up liking a tweet which insinuated Wu’s U.S. chart success was the result of bots.

What if I told you the Chinese-American War began not from Trump-fueled trade disputes or the governance of Taiwan, but rather from Kris Wu’s “Antares” album? In a period of high blood pressure and immense, often understandable sensitivity, the mere appearance of a beef, a semblance of disrespect towards one of China’s biggest stars from one of America’s biggest stars, was enough to conjure tweets like these:
