Ariana Grande and Victoria Monét's new track 'Monopoly' has been placed under a magnifying glass and thoroughly picked apart by her fans.
Yesterday, Ariana Grande released a brand new track and music video, entitled 'Monopoly'. The collaboration with her 'Ellen' show 'Thank U, Next' performer Victoria Monét, was teased by the pair on Twitter all of last week.
Since the release of the new music video, and after a thorough look at the lyrics, many fans think that Grande has come out as bisexual.
The lyric that left fans wondering is Grande singing "I like women and men", while giving a notable side-eye in the music video. Monét, who admitted that she likes girls in a tweet last year, also sings the lyric.
Fans are now hailing the new song as a bisexual anthem.

The singer has been responding to fans who have been supportive of her on social media. One fan who tweeted "ariana ain’t gotta label herself, but she said what she said" saw Grande reply to say "i haven’t before and still don’t feel the need to now 🖤🧚🏼♂️ which is okay."

Bisexual or not, Ariana Grande should be able to do what she wants in a way she feels comfortable. If revealing her sexuality in a lyric is her way of "coming out", then fair play to her.
Here's the music video for 'Monopoly' so you can make up your own decision.
Grande is set to play three sold-out dates at Dublin's 3Arena later this year.
