Singer-actress Ariana Grande says in a
new interview that she hates homophobia.
The 22-year-old Grande recently spoke
with Ryan Murphy for an interview that appeared in V
Magazine. Grande co-stars in Fox's horror-comedy Scream
Queens, which Murphy (Glee, American Horror Story), who is
openly gay, created with Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan.

“You know, my brother is gay,”
Grande said, referring to YouTube star Frankie Grande. “All of my
best friends are gay.”
“When my brother came out of the
closet, it wasn't a big deal for my family. Even my grandpa, who is,
like, super old-school, was like, Good for you!”
Grande added that she hates homophobia.
“It's outrageous to me when I see
people hate on someone because of their sexuality. I hate the
intolerance. I hate the judgment. I hate it so much,” she said.
“Most of my favorite people in my
life are gay. It’s something I’m super passionate about, because
whenever I would see my friends get bullied, or my brother get hurt
for his sexuality, I would become a raging lunatic. I would
literally become a raging lunatic because I just can’t take it.
When you see someone you love hurting, for such a superficial,
bullshit reason, it’s like, how small and spiritually unenlightened
and dumb as fuck can a person be? How much further can your head get
up your ass that you’re actually judging someone as a person based
on their sexuality before you even have a conversation with them?”
