The, thank you next, crooner, has allegedly donated the proceeds from her just recently concluded the tour in Atlanta, which I must say was a very big deal, to the planned parenthood movement.
The proceeds which come to about $250,000 was donated as her own quota against the recently signed “heart bill” bill which says that once a pregnant woman is eight weeks gone, no abortion is going to be granted to her once the heartbeat of a child could be heard except the pregnancy threatens her life. states in the US like Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Ohio. Alabama has passed the most restrictive of the bills and it says that abortion is illegal in almost all cases including rape and incest.
A lot of celebrities which includes directors and producers have been protesting against the bill and has even gone as far as taking away productions that were meant to take place in Georgia. Some of them have even come forward with their own personal stories of how they had had abortions sometime in their life.
Filmmakers like Jordan Peele and J.J Adams have vowed to donate 100% of the proceeds from their recent episodes “Lovecraft Country” as their own quota to the fight against the bill.
Dr. Leana Wen in an official statement has expressed her gratitude to Ariana stating that Ariana’s donation came at the time it was most needed and that she appreciates Ariana’s consistent stand in supporting women’s rights and standing with Planned Parenthood to fight for access to good reproductive health care.
The singer who recently kicked off her sweetener tour in March of this year has also been in the news recently for responding to a fan who tweeted a video of an anti-gay protester in front of her Atlanta concert with the words:
“man… saddened but not surprised by this one bit. I’m so sorry any of my fans had to encounter this. We will do our best to ensure this doesn’t happen again. Proud of you all for not fighting/engaging violently. Never worth it, wishing him peace and a healed heart cause girl, yikes”.
Her donation of $250,000 is quite appreciated as she has set an example to other musicians to put their money where their mouth is. However, her, excessive interest in LGBTQ has sparked interest in some of her fans who have popped the question of if Ariana Grande is Bi-sexual? That’s a question for her media people to answer; we all just appreciate her efforts and enjoy her music.
