Ariana Grande has released, yet another, new song within the span of a year—following her busy year of releasing not one, but two record-breaking albums. After the success of Sweetener and Thank U, Next, it seems Grande is basking in the spotlight that is the top of all playlist charts for radio stations, streaming services, and pop music.
While on her Sweetener/Thank U, Next tour, Grande decided to drop some more music that she had made with friends during the recording of her other records, but tracks that were cut from the albums. Now, thanks to one song, in particular, fans are convinced that Grande just came out as bisexual.
On Monday, Grande—along with her long-time friend Victoria Monét—released the song “Monopoly,” along with what appears to be a self-made music video.
In the lyrics, Grande is heard repeating multiple times:
“I like women and men.”
Immediately, fans on Twitter began losing their minds—thinking this was the moment they had all been waiting for.
Miss Ariana Grande did not just drop a new single, come out as bisexual and log off i can’t believe this we-

However, some people online are thinking that Grande may have added the line in the song for fun and won’t believe it’s true until the Queen herself speaks up.
Until Ariana comes out and says she’s bi I’m not believing it

Others areconcerned that Grande is “queer-baiting” again, as she was dragged previously for her “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” music video, where she flirts and dances with another woman.
if ariana isn't bi and shes just queerbaiting again…….

if ariana’s not actually bisexual she’s going to look like a clown at this point ?
— abby (@honeynmoonlight) April 1, 2019
ariana being a straight woman feeding off bisexual culture is actually disgusting !! unless she explicitly says she’s bi it’s not ok.

Others think that the line in the song may belong to Victoria—who came out as bisexual recently.
i know victoria is bisexual and that line could've been for her but also why is ariana singing she should know better n e ways

wait so is ariana actually bisexual or was the "i like women and men" line in monopoly just for victoria (who came out as bi a while ago)
— angel? (@iloveangxls) April 1, 2019
