Ariana Grande has fans questioning if she is hinting at her bisexuality in her new music video for the single “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored.”
In the lyrics of the song, which appears on her latest album “thank u, next,” Grande describes her lust for her love interest who has a girlfriend. The video seems to follow the same storyline with Grande spotting Charles Milton (“Riverdale”) at the club. She appears attracted to him but notices he came with his girlfriend. The couple invites Grande to hang out with them and Grande, annoyed with their relationship, tries to get in between them.
At the end of the video, the trio is in the pool when Grande leans in for a kiss, not with Milton, but with his girlfriend.
Fans wondered if Grande was actually revealing she is bisexual or if she was queerbaiting for views.

Other fans pointed out a theory that the girlfriend is another version of Grande but some people still didn’t like Grande implying she’s bisexual in the video.
i love ariana so much and i’m so proud of her always but the buwygib mv wasn’t right of her. i know some people are saying the other girl is supposed to be a version of her, but being lgbtq shouldn’t be used for aesthetic or trend, like the ending, no matter the intended meaning— tahlia ♡ 48 (@bermanswife) February 8, 2019
ok tea but if ariana isnt bi and had that ending to break up with ur gf im bored idk im gonna be a lil :/ bc lgbt themes shouldn’t be used in music videos just to add shock value or be like wow look at me idk— Val🌙⭐ (@galaxy_pal) February 8, 2019
i understand what the ending of Ariana’s video is supposed to mean but i really don’t like how she is riding this wave of rumors that she’s bi or whatever when she’s a straight woman. gay ppl aren’t a trend and kissing a girl is not something to bait wlw/the lgbt community w.— i dont stan anyone except myself (@saintmctel) February 8, 2019
