INTO Editor ‘Sorry’ for Anti-Ariana Grande Story, Cuts Ties to Writer Over Past ‘Allegations’

The editor of the LGBT website INTO on Tuesday apologized for a post that called Ariana Grande’s new music video “anti-queer,” saying the story “should never have been published.”

INTO also formally cut ties with the post’s writer, transgender activist Eli Erlick, after the site’s management became aware of several unspecified “allegations made in the past” about her.

“Given the seriousness of these allegations, I personally spoke with the writer and immediately launched an internal investigation,” INTO Editor-in-Chief Zach Stafford in a post Tuesday afternoon. “INTO was not aware of these until Monday after publishing. And the writer will not be contributing to INTO for the time being.”

Stafford did not respond to multiple inquiries about the nature of the allegations. Erlick, too, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

INTO previously removed Erlick’s byline from the piece, citing “numerous death threats” she said she had received after the post went live on Monday. In addition to INTO, you can read Erlick’s work at Teen Vogue and HuffPost.

The public note of apology from Stafford came publishing a widely panned commentary that declared Grande’s “thank u, next” video to be “virulently anti-queer” and “transmisogynistic.”

“Laden with transmisogyny, anti-queer jokes, and blackface, the video follows Ariana’s white feminist awakening through a celebrity-laden nod to several cult classics,” Erlick wrote, sparking an immediate backlash from the pop star’s famously vicious online fans.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Erlick’s Twitter account had also been disabled.

The article “did not meet the editorial guidelines we created,” Stafford said in his apology Tuesday. “We as editors failed the writer by not working with her to ensure the piece met our standards. And for that I am personally sorry.”

INTO is owned by the gay dating app Grindr.

LGBT Site Writer Calls Ariana Grande’s New Video ‘Anti-Queer,’ Removes Byline After ‘Death Threats’

The LGBT news website INTO has removed the byline for an opinion piece accusing Ariana Grande’s new music video “thank u, next” of being “anti-queer” after the writer of the story received death threats.

“We have decided to remove the author’s name from this piece after the editorial team was alerted that a high number of death threats were being made against the writer as a result of the opinions presented in this piece,” read an editor’s note affixed to the top of the article.

“INTO has historically been a place for varying opinions from LGBTQ people around the world, and will remain such a place — but these opinions never warrant violence,” it continued. “And when a writer’s own life could potentially be at stake, we must take necessary steps to ensure their safety.”

It’s unclear whether the death threats were coming from enraged Ariana Grande fans, or from anti-LGBT trolls. Website editor-in- chief Zach Stafford did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.

In the piece, the now anonymous author, hit Grande for “blackface” and “transmisogyny.”

“Her music video failed to support the basic dignity of queer and trans people,” it reads. “Laden with transmisogyny, anti-queer jokes, and blackface, the video follows Ariana’s white feminist awakening through a celebrity-laden nod to several cult classics”

The story then went on to list a number of examples from the music video, including a moment when gay performer Troye Sivan says of Grande: “I heard she’s a lesbian now and dating some chick called Aubrey. It’s f—ing sick.” The line was part of a broader homage to the movie “Mean Girls.”

INTO, a news organization owed by the LGBT dating app Grindr, has produced a string of notable pieces in recent weeks, which have included sending reporters into Mexico to cover the migrant caravan. The site was also the first to report news that Grindr president, Scott Chen, did not believe in same-sex marriage.

They also produce the web’s most extensive coverage and commentary for “RuPaul’s Drag Race”

Pete Davidson Shares Emotional Post About Online Bullying and Being Suicidal

Pete Davidson said on Monday that he’s been bullied online and in public for the past nine months and reiterated some of his past comments about being suicidal and suffering from borderline personality disorder.

In a statement posted to Instagram, he said he won’t give in to Internet trolls who want to see the “SNL” star do harm to himself.

“I just want you guys to know. No matter how hard the Internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t,” Davidson wrote. “I’m upset I even have to say this. To all those holding me down and seeing this for what it is – I see you and I love you.”

In the post, the comedian alludes to online vitriol he has received in the wake of his breakup with pop star Ariana Grande. The music video for her song “thank u, next,” which just released this past week, also mentions Davidson by name.

“I’ve kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything,” Davidson said. “I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months. I’ve spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don’t want to be on this earth.”

Davidson first mentioned that he suffered from borderline personality disorder back in 2017 when he appeared on Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast and also revealed how he was coping following a stint in rehab.

Eminem’s 11-Minute Freestyle Name-Drops Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Apple Watch, AMC Theatres (Video)

Eminem just dropped 11 minutes of pure fire. Slim Shady’s latest lengthy freestyle was sans backing track and filmed in The Shelter at St. Andrew’s Hall in his native Detroit, Michigan.

The one-man cypher in a bare-bones setting takes a shot at the Apple Watch, and mentions Ariana Grande and the Manchester bombing. Eminem’s also got new rhymes about Justin Bieber, Lacey Peterson, and AMC Theatres, among other subjects.

Below are the best lines and punchlines though, in our humble opinion.

5 Things You May Have Missed in Ariana Grande’s ‘Thank U, Next’ Video

On Friday, Ariana Grande blessed her fans with the music video for her latest single “Thank U, Next.” The video pays tribute to classic films like “Mean Girls,” “Bring It On” and “Legally Blonde.”

“Thank U, Next” already has 500,000 views in the first two hours of being uploaded to Youtube. That’s partly due to all that’s going on in those five minutes. To make things easy, TheWrap has broken down everything you may have missed while you blacked out from excitement.

Kris Jenner does her best Amy Poehler

Jenner makes an appearance during the “Mean Girls”-inspired Christmas show while Grande and co. dance on stage. Like Poehler in the movie, Jenner is having a little too much fun with that camcorder.

Singer Troyé Sivan gets bullied

Sivan, who starred in the new movie “Boy Erased,” plays one of the high school students gossiping about Grande in the beginning of the video. “I heard she’s a lesbian now and dating some chick called Aubrey. It’s fucking sick,” he confesses to the camera.  Sivan is later shoved by Grande as she struts through the school hallway. Ugh, so fetch!

Also Read: ‘Boy Erased’ Kicks Off Focus Features’ Big Winter at Indie Box Office

“Pete, I Love You Always” is written in her scrapbook. 

When the music finally kicks in during the beginning of the video, you can see Grande scribbling in her scrapbook. Look closely and you can see a direct reference to ex-fiancé and SNL star Pete Davidson.

That’s not the only heart you can see on the page. A heart for a “Ricky,” for her ex and back-up dancer Ricky Alvarez, can also be seen in red marker too.

Ariana gets her packages shipped by “BDE” 

Earlier this year, right around the news that Davidson and Grande were dating, Grande made a comment on Twitter about Davidson’s penis size. Twitter took this and ran with it, coming up with the term BDE (it stands for big, uh do we need to say it, energy) to describe a man with a cool vibe who also might be well endowed.

Also Read: Watch Pete Davidson Confirm He and Ariana Grande Are Engaged (Video)

Toward the later half of the music video Grande is at a salon, recreating a scene in “Legally Blonde.” She confesses to the lady in front of her Paulette that her ex was “really big.” The person she’s talking to is actress Jennifer Coolidge, who is in not in one but two classic turn-of-the-century movies, “Legally Blonde” and “American Pie.”

Paulette either didn’t get the message or has a really weird way analogy for male genitalia, because she tells her she dated a guy once with a really big “front tooth.” Um, okay then.

But the bigger (no pun intended) nod to BDE comes when someone who is dressed like a UPS driver starts dancing in the salon toward the very end of the film. The man actually has a “BDE” on his shirt where the UPS would be. Very clever.

Many, many more merry cameos

Grande has friends in all the right places. Not only does Sivan and Jenner show up for “Thank U, Next,” but many of Grande’s former co-stars on Nickelodeon’s “Victorious” and actors from some of the movies she pays tribute to show up to the party.

The obvious ones are Coolidge of “Legally Blonde” and Aaron Samuels of “Mean Girls,” but you’ll also see former “Victorious” actresses Elizabeth Gillies and Daniella Monet, and actor Matt Bennett playing Grande’s boyfriend in a scene.

Ariana Grande Shares Letter She Wrote to Fans After Manchester Bombing Concert

Ariana Grande has reflected on one of the defining, life-changing moments of the singer’s career, the suicide bombing at her Manchester, England, concert.
In the fourth episode of her new YouTube documentary series, “Dangerous Woman Diaries…

Ariana Grande has reflected on one of the defining, life-changing moments of the singer’s career, the suicide bombing at her Manchester, England, concert.

In the fourth episode of her new YouTube documentary series, “Dangerous Woman Diaries,” Grande read the letter she sent to fans who attended and survived the May 2017 terrorist attack that killed 23 people, including the bomber, and injured more than 800 people.

“The people of Manchester were able to change an event that portrayed the worst of humanity into one that portrayed the most beautiful of humanity,” Grande says in the video (via Entertainment Weekly). “‘Like a handprint on my heart’… I think of Manchester constantly and will carry this with me every day for the rest of my life.

Grande sent the letter on Feb. 22, 2018, eight months after the attack. In it she explained how the experience taught her to not take life for granted and gave her added resiliency.

“Music is an escape. Music is the safest thing I’ve ever known,” Grande continued. “Music — pop music, stan culture — is something that brings people together, introduces them to some of their best friends, and makes them feel like they can be themselves. It is comfort. It is fun. It is expression. It is happiness. It is the last thing that would ever harm someone. It is safe.”

Several weeks after the attack, Grande returned to Manchester for the “One Love Manchester” benefit concert, performing Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over” with Miley Cyrus and Oasis’ “Don’t Look Back In Anger” with Coldplay. Oasis’s song became a viral anthem of sorts following the attack when a crowd sang the tune following an emotional moment of silence at a vigil. And Grande closed out the performance with her rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

Grande will release the music video for her new song “thank u, next” later on Friday. Watch a preview of her documentary series above.

Ariana Grande is launching a new docuseries exclusively on YouTube, it was announced Wednesday.

The four-part YouTube Original titled “Ariana Grande: Dangerous Woman Diaries” will give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the singer’s career, including the making of her last album, “Sweetener,” and never-before-seen video from her Dangerous Woman Tour.

Despite her usual appearance in the spotlight, Grande’s personal life — including her recent relationship with “Saturday Night Live’s” Pete Davidson and the death of former boyfriend Mac Miller — will not play a big role in the series. Instead, the show will be focused on her professional life between the time period of her 2017 Dangerous Woman Tour and the creation of “Sweetener.” The series will also briefly touch on the Manchester Attacks, which took place during Grande’s Dangerous Woman Tour after a concert at the Manchester Arena. While the singer does not address the tragedy — which took the lives of 22 people — on camera, there are a brief series of title cards where the attack is mentioned.

New episodes of “Ariana Grande: Dangerous Woman Diaries” will be made available for free on Grande’s YouTube Channel, with the first episode set to debut on Nov. 29 and the remaining three being released every Thursday. If fans want to binge watch the entire series at once they can sign up for YouTube Premium, Google’s $12 per month subscription video and music service.

The new docuseries is part of YouTube’s recent push into ad-supported content. Typically, YouTube’s Original content has been housed behind a paywall, but recently the company has started to make more of its content available for free by supporting the programming with ads. Adding to that effort, the video service announced yesterday that all of its Originals produced in 2020 and after will have an ad-supported window, allowing all YouTube users to watch the content for free.

Ariana Grande and Her Mother Roast Piers Morgan Over Ellen DeGeneres, Little Mix Digs

Ariana Grande and her mother have already gotten together for the Thanksgiving holiday — to take aim at British media personality Piers Morgan.

In the run-up to America’s national celebration of gratitude, “Thank U, Next” singer Grande and her mother Joan gave Twitter users plenty to be thankful for, as they went at Morgan with full force over comments he made about talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres and British girl group Little Mix.

The Grande women spent a healthy chunk of their Thanksgiving Eve railing on Morgan, after he cast DeGeneres as a hypocrite and accused Little Mix of ripping off the Dixie Chicks’ iconic, clothing-free Entertainment Weekly cover from 2003.

On Monday — also known as International Men’s Day in some social-media circles — Morgan bashed a video shared by DeGeneres of a montage of her celebrating men, with cheeky tributes to Idris Elba, Liam Hemsworth and Ryan Gosling, among other hunky showbiz males.

“Ellen drooling today over famous men’s bodies on #InternationalMensDay2018,” Morgan tweeted in response. “Yet I’ve been abused all day for complimenting @hollywills on her legs. The hypocrisy of modern feminism laid bare.”

The following day found Morgan calling out Little Mix over a photo of them posed with provocative words written on their naked bodies, in a manner reminiscent of the Dixie Chicks photo.

“Hey @LittleMix – when are you going to admit you stole this idea from @dixiechicks?” Morgan wrote.

Ariana and Joan Grande didn’t take kindly to Morgan’s critiques.

“Honestly what is wrong with you @piersmorgan ? Didn’t your mother ever teach you, if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it!” Joan Grande tweeted. ” You came for @TheEllenShow yesterday which was disgraceful, she is an angel. @LittleMix today, did you ever hear of paying homage? And..well never mind.”

The elder Grande subsequently tweeted, “Damn… I was so caught up in my own little twitterverse that I missed my genius daughter @ArianaGrande actually handling the situation… hahaha I am a proud mother who raised a magnificent, beautiful, talented FEMINIST daughter!! Ariana … yay!”

Oh, yeah; Ariana was handling it, alright.

“Ellen is an incredible & kind human being.. I use my talent AND my sexuality all the time because i choose to. women can be sexual AND talented. naked and dignified. it’s OUR choice,” the singer tweeted, adding, “we will keep fighting til people understand. i say this w all due respect but thank u, next.”

To which Morgan replied, “Hi Ariana! How lovely to hear from you so soon after your mother. Of course, women can do what they like – but if they/you use nudity to sell records to impressionable young female fans, I’ll continue to call them/you out on it. All due respect, but thank YOU. Next…”

But the younger Grande wasn’t done raking Morgan over the coals just yet.

“also @piersmorgan, i look forward to the day you realize there are other ways to go about making yourself relevant than to criticize young, beautiful, successful women for everything they do,” Grande wrote. “i think that’ll be a beautiful thing for you and your career or what’s left of it.”

Ouch.

“Now now, young lady – my career’s doing just fine thanks,” Morgan responded. “For the record, I criticize/praise everyone – male, female, gender-fluid. Indeed, I’ve written columns praising AND criticizing you, and you deserved both.”
