Ariana Grande just got finished defending herself against rumors of rampant diva behavior, and now one of the stars of The Big Bang Theory is throwing shade her way. And the worst part is, this actress doesn’t even know who Grande is.
Mayim Bialik, who plays Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler on the CBS (Radio.com’s parent company) series and who played the titular character of Blossom on the show of the same name in the ’90s, wrote a blog post titled “The Problem With That Giant Billboard of Ariana Grande” for Kveller. In the post, Bialik questions why it is women seem to be selling sexuality more than their talents.
“There is one [billboard] for Ariana Grande, and I will go ahead and admit I have no idea who she is or what she does,” Bialik writes. “Based on the billboard, she sells lingerie. Or stiletto heels. Or plastic surgery because every woman over 22 wishes she has that body, I’m sure.”
Bialik continues, “Why is she in her underwear on this billboard though? And if she has a talent (is she a singer?), then why does she have to sell herself in lingerie? I mean, I know that society is patriarchal and women are expected to be sexy and sexually available no matter what we do in society, but I guess now I need to explain that to my sons?”
