Ariana Grande wished Marilyn Monroe a happy birthday on Instagram, and she received some hate online for doing so. Well, Ariana gave her haters a piece of her mind:
“So much hate for celebrating Marilyn’s spirit on her birthday. I adore her work and have compassion for her inner sadness that she covered up on a daily basis.
Judging her for her wildly rumored personal life (which is truly no one else’s business) is only a distraction from her talent, beauty, comedic genius and effervescent spirit… it always breaks my heart to see people say such terrible things about people they’ve never met / don’t really know the one hundred percent truth about.
So today, I choose to celebrate the beautiful parts of Marilyn. we should only and always focus on the beautiful things… because what we focus on expands… which is why I feel for the people who focus on hate… because that’s all you have to give. and I truly do feel sorry for you because when you’ve been dead for 50 some odd years…… nobody will be wishing you a happy birthday.”
