Public Reminds Ariana That She’s Not the “Hardest-Working 23-Y.O.” Like She Says
There Ariana Grande goes again, putting her foot in her mouth. The 23-year-old ~dangerous woman~, who once boasted, “I hated America” — and was even part of a police investigation because she licked a doughnut that wasn’t hers — is bringing the dramz into 2017, and we’re not even three full weeks in. And it’s all because of this one Instagram post:
The picture itself isn’t the problem; it’s what the “Into You” singer wrote as the caption. “when you’re cute but you’re also the hardest working 23 year old human being on earth,” she wrote, along with the hashtags #cute #butalso #CEO #unf*ckwitable #haventsleptinyears. While it’s great that Ari is clearly flourishing in the confidence arena — considering she refers to herself as both cute and hard-working — people are calling out her lack of humble pie, noting that she is not, actually, the hardest-working 23-year-old human being on earth:
Ok Ariana Grande I won't argue you work hard. A job is a job but you are not the hardest working 23 y/o. No where close. ??? my goodness????

The public even took care to remind her of people her age in the military:
Ariana Grande says she's the "hardest working 23 year old on earth" sounds like life in the army is really taking a toll on her bless her x

No, @ArianaGrande you are not the "hardest working 23yo." That would be our military men and women & 1st responders. Not a coddled celebrity

The Internet also gave a shoutout to Ari’s privilege as a celebrity:

Ariana’s statement could’ve been more of an exaggeration rather than a cocky comment, or she could truly believe that she is the hardest-working person her age; she does, after all, have jam-packed schedule. So far, she hasn’t responded to any of the harsh backlash regarding her caption.
Speaking of Ariana Grande’s work, here are 10 songs she collaborated on with one of her BFs:
