In a new interview with the New York Times, talent manager Scooter Braun talks about the incident, explaining that he called Ariana and offered up his advice: "I tell her, you have to address the mistakes that you made and own them. Some of the words she used in that shop were things she needed to address, and she did."
He added: "But I also think - not about her, but just in general - we're getting a little ridiculous when it comes to doughnuts and eggs. The rock stars of '70s were really [expletive]. Let's talk about some real stuff. Why are we discussing that when we have real significant issues in the world? Like, gun control. And the fact that a presidential candidate is saying things that I find to be anti-American. These are the things we should be angry and frustrated about."
