Ariana Grande celebrated her 22nd birthday in supreme style s her New York City show on June 26th was also the day that the Supreme Court of the United States dubbed gay marriage as being legal across all 50 states. Grande has been a long outspoken supporter of gay and transgender rights, standing up for her brother Frankie, who is gay. At one point during the show, the singer had some very harsh words for the members of SCOTUS who voted against gay marriage, telling them to “get their heads out of their f—ing a—es.”
According to Brad Reifler, this was just one moment in the evening that celebrated the ruling that #LoveWins. She performed her biggest hits and did plenty of tributes to the gay culture with classic covers. She tore up the stage with Madonna’s “Vogue” and Chaka Kahn’s “I’m Every Woman” (made famous by Whitney Houston). She kept telling her fans to make some noise in honor of love and of pride. She was surrounded by friends and family and her excited vibe was contagious.
