Ariana Grande has been having an incredible year so far, from breaking records set more than 50 years ago to topping charts all over the world with just one single.
After releasing seven singles in less than a year, the 7 Rings singer has released yet another..
The song is titled Monopoly, and fans are convinced the star reveals she is bisexual.
Fans have dissected the lyrics on Genius and have discovered a line they think is Ariana’s way to come out as bisexual.
The lyric in question is part of the post-chorus:
“I like women and men (yeah)
Work so f*ckin’ much, need a twinny, twin, twin
How you hit the club when you barely got in?
Then we hit the bank, making them investments for the win, oh”
Fans took to social media to speculate:
“wait… did Ariana Grande just come out as bisexual?”
“if she did then this gave me more of a reason to love her ❤️ ”

In other opinions, fans were convinced the lyrics were written by Ariana’s bestie Victoria Monét, who recently came out as bisexual to her fans on social media.
November last year, the American singer Victoria Monet wrote:
“I want everyone to know that I’m single (since people wanna pretend I’m not) and make imaginary rules for me. I secretly and respectfully went through a difficult break up this summer but enough is enough. I also like girls. Thank U, Next. Bye”
Previously, Ariana had to defend herself after it was announced she was headlining Manchester Pride, with many people angry a straight artist received the slot. The 25-year-old singer responded on Twitter to say she wanted to celebrate the community ‘regardless of my identity or how people label me’.
“LGBTQ representation is incredibly important, and I’m always proud to share the stage with LGBTQ artists!”
“Over the years, Pride events have been headlined by performers and artists of all sexual orientations and genders, including straight allies like Cher and Kylie Minogue.”
“I do think there’s room for us to talk about these issues without equating a performance for an LGBTQ audience with exploitation of the LGBTQ community”
