Niall Horan Praises Ariana Grande: Anything She Touches Turns to Gold

Niall Horan Praises Ariana Grande: Anything She Touches Turns to Gold

USA star Ariana Grande found herself facing the firing squad this past weekend when comments she made about her weave were slammed and labelled "racially insensitive".

After being accused of stealing lyrics and flow from rapper Princess Nokia, rappers Soulja Boy and 2 Chainz have now called out the singer for allegedly ripping them off for her latest track. "Gee, thanks, just bought it...'" the post read, with the user adding sarcastically, "White women talking about their weaves is how we're gonna solve racism".

Twitter reacts to hearing Ariana Grande's "7 rings".

Princess Nokia specifically pointed to the part involving Grande rapping, "You like my hair?/Gee thanks, I just bought it" - on "Mine", the New York City-based rap artist repeated the line "It's mine/I bought it".

The singer-actress' catchy new tune was recorded with producers Willy Beaman and Cameron Forbes in Los Angeles, California a year ago. "Hmmm... sounds about white", she mockingly said.

However, after some backlash, Ari deleted the post.

Twitter is feeling poor after listening to Ariana Grande's 7 Rings. Many people noticed how her new track resembled previously released songs by other artists, citing Princess Nokia's "Mine" and Soulja Boy's "Pretty Boy Swag".

Like her lyrics proclaim: If she wants it, well she's got it. Ariana Grande's latest single has broken the record for the most streams on Spotify in a day.

Though she didn't specify who she was referring to, her followers quickly pieced it together thanks to the date, and shared messages of support, reminding her to take care of herself and saying "he's very proud of you".

Grande has not acknowledged any of these comments.
