Ariana Grande fired back at haters on Twitter this weekend, following some backlash over Ari's Marilyn Monroe birthday shoutout tweet. The "Problem" singer tweeted about the late actress, who would have turned 88 on Sunday, writing: "happy birthday marilyn #misunderstood #beautiful #innocentrebel"

Rather than let the hater comments slide, Ariana took to TwitLonger to let her feelings on the matter be known:

"so much hate for celebrating Marilyn's spirit on her birthday. I adore her work and have compassion for her inner sadness that she covered up on a daily basis that a**holes like you made her feel in the first place!! judging her for her wildly rumored personal life (which is truly no one else's business) is only a distraction from her talent, beauty, comedic genius and effervescent spirit.... it always breaks my heart to see people say such terrible things about people they've never met / don't really know the one hundred percent truth about. so today, I choose to celebrate the beautiful parts of marilyn. we should only and always focus on the beautiful things... because what we focus on expands..... which is why I feel for the people who focus on hate.... because that's all you have to give. and I truly do feel sorry for you because when you've been dead for 50 some odd years...... nobody will be wishing you a happy birthday."
