Big Bang Theory star has a BIG “problem” with Ariana Grande

by

Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik has spoken out about her problem with the portrayal of young female stars in a blog post, using Ariana Grande as a prime example.

In the post, entitled 'The Problem With That Giant Billboard of Ariana Grande', Mayim writes:

"There is one [a billboard] for Ariana Grande, and I will go ahead and admit I have no idea who she is or what she does.

"Based on the billboard, she sells lingerie. Or stiletto heels. Or plastic surgery because every woman over 22 wishes she has that body, I'm sure. Why is she in her underwear on this billboard though? And if she has a talent (is she a singer?), then why does she have to sell herself in lingerie? I mean, I know that society is patriarchal and women are expected to be sexy and sexually available no matter what we do in society, but I guess now I need to explain that to my sons?"

The offending billboard

She's got a point! Though we're not sure things are going to change any time soon, unfortunately. And judging from Ariana's recent diva behaviour, we are expecting some kind of angry reply aaany minute now…!
