Ariana Grande is receiving big time backlash for her new song '7 Rings'
Sounds about white
Following backlash over her new single '7 Rings,' Ariana Grande has issued yet another apology, after fans called her out for ripping it from another artist.
When Grande, 25, dropped her latest hit four days ago, New York rapper Princess Nokia took to social media in a since-deleted post to accuse the pop star of copying her song 'Mine,' off her mixtape 1992.
The rapper shared a video of herself on Instagram listening to both songs, the media outlet reported. The video has since been removed.
Nokia pointed out the lyrics she believed were similar. “Does that sound familiar to you? ’Cause that sound really familiar to me. Oh my God!” she said.
“Ain’t that the little song I made about brown women and their hair? Hmm … sounds about white,” she said.
In ‘appreciation’ for Grande’s fans sharing the love for her song, the singer shared a post that read: "White women talking about their weaves is how we're gonna solve racism," to her Instagram story (which has since been deleted), writing that she has "so much love" for the user.
When Instagram account @theshaderoom reposted a screenshot of the singer's response to the allegations writing that she'd "missed the point," Grande went into damage control and wrote an apology in the post's comments.
"Hi hi," she wrote. "I think her intention was to be like… yay a white person disassociating the negative [stereotype] [sic] that is paired with the word ‘weave'… however I'm so sorry my response was out of pocket or if it came across the wrong way. Thanks for opening the conversation and like… to everyone for talking to me about it. It's never my intention to offend anybody."
