Los Angeles - Ariana Grande is on a "feminist rampage".
The Break Free hitmaker reacted angrily to suggestions she is dating One Direction's Niall Horan after they were spotted together on several occasions earlier this week, insisting people should appreciate her for who she is and not what man she may or may not be dating.
She told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: 'A girl can be friends with something with a dick and not hop on it. We live in a horrendously one-track-minded world.
"Oh God forbid! They must be getting married. I hate everyone.
"I'm tired of needing to be linked to a guy. I'm not Big Sean's ex, I'm not Niall's possible girl. I'm Ariana Grande. If that's not enough, then don't talk to me!
"I'm on this feminist rampage at the moment. I'm me. I'm Ariana. Peace out."
Despite her furious outburst, the 21-year-old beauty seemed more relaxed at Capital's Summertime Ball with Vodafone at London's Wembley Stadium on Saturday, where she performed some of her greatest hits and posed for a selfie with David Beckham's eldest son, Brooklyn.

Along with the cute snap, the 16-year-old star posted photos of himself with all four members of One Direction on Instagram, writing: "Great seeing these chaps (sic)."

The 21-year-old singer - who split from Big Sean in April after eight months of dating - also admits it has taken her several years to realise she doesn't have to ''constantly'' have a guy ''by her side''.
She concluded her lengthy essay by writing: "I'm saying this after literally 8 years of feeling like I constantly had to have a boy by my side.
"After being on my own now for a few months I am realizing that that's just not the case... I have never felt more present, grounded, and satisfied. I've never laughed harder or had more fun or enjoyed my life more.(sic)"
