During an appearance on Zane Lowe’s “Apple Music” show, Ariana said: “If I have an opinion artistically or if I am directing something, or if I have something to say regarding a choice that’s being made with my career or something, blah, blah, blah, it always was in the past kind of manipulated and turned into this negative thing, whereas I don’t see that with men. And yet, it’s just so not the same thing with women, which I hope we can work on fixing”.
