HipHollywood has obtained the official statement from Ariana Grande regarding her recent controversial claims that she hates Americans and America.
“I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American and I’ve always made it clear that I love my county,” the pop star said. “What I said in a private moment with my friend, who was buying the donuts, was taken out of context and I am sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words.”
Grande came under fire this week after surveillance video showed the singer proclaiming, “I hate Americans. I hate America,” while at a donut shop in Lake Elsinore, Ca.
“As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole,” Grande wrote. “The fact that the United States has the highest child obesity rate in the world frustrates me. We need to do more to educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of overeating and the poison that we put into our bodies. We need to demand more from our food industry. ”
The 22-year-old continued, “However I should have known better in how I expressed myself; and with my new responsibility to others as a public figure I will strive to be better.”
Grande, who was supposed to headline Saturday night’s MLB All-Star game concert in Cincinnati, also confirmed why she pulled out of the show.
“As for why I cannot be at the MLB show, I have had emergency oral surgery and due to recovery I cannot attend the show. I hope to make it up to all those fans soon. That being said let me once again apologize if I have offended anyone with my poor choice of words.”
