Frankie Grande: ‘Ariana’s new single is a gay anthem’
Frankie Grande has labelled her sister Ariana Grande’s new single a “gay anthem.” The famous dancer was sure that Ariana’s new song “No Tears Left to Cry” would be an instant hit, especially in the LGBTQ community.
When asked by Billboard if the track was a gay anthem, he replied: “It is! She’s always been so supportive of the LGBTQ community, and her songs have always said that. In the new single, she says, ‘They point out the colours in you, I see ’em too, and boy, I like ’em.’ That’s her celebrating every kind of love you can imagine. Every colour of the rainbow.”
But there’s more, and Frankie explains that “she’s got a rainbow across her face on the cover of the single. Ariana is anything but subtle. She and I support the community with every chance we get. When I first heard it, they didn’t have any lyrics. It was just the melody. They wrote the music first. The song really always had that sparkle.”
Ariana’s older brother also told Billboard he came out to Ariana when she was just 11 years old and that she was very symphatetic and open-minded. It is to say Ariana embraced the LGBTQ community very early.
The 24-year-old singer released the ‘gay anthem’ No Tears Left to Cry – her first track since the tragic Manchester terror attack in 2017 – on April 27.
