After the Biebs egged on his Nickelodeon pal, saying: “@ArianaGrande post that pic and tell your grandma she is a cutie,” the 20-year-old singer/actress tweeted out a photo of her and the “As Long As You Love Me” crooner in a mouth-to-cheek embrace, along with the caption “@justinbieber you’re crazy and nonna says thank you, she loves you.” This was soon followed by an attack on Ariana from Beliebers.
But, rather than take down the picture and cave in to the online abuse, Ari responded:
Everyone, girls are allowed to be friends with guys. I'm a lady. Chill out.
