Ariana recently told Attitude that her fashion choices are all her doing and not the result of industry pressure to sex things up. She explained: "I've seen people online saying, 'It's so sad she's becoming a product of this industry - she's wearing shorter and shorter skirts and showing more and more skin'. I'm like, 'Yeah, because I want to.'" Got that? Good.
She added that she's happy with her choices and doesn't care what the haters say, noting: "Believe me, if I don't want to do something I will not do it, and I say that with every ounce of passion in my body. I'm a very flexible person but if I feel like you want me to compromise my views or myself as an artist, you can go f**k yourself."
Ariana is still aware of her audience, saying, "That's something I've been careful about my whole career because I don't want to do something that will shock or upset my younger fans – they're the ones who've been with me since the beginning."
