So... after our little Twitter spat a few months ago, we randomly bumped into each other in a LA restaurant last night, she joined me for ‘a chat’ & 2 hours later we were still chatting. We laughed, we argued, she cried, I nearly did, the drinks flowed & we bonded. Turns out we really like each other. Weird. Thank u @arianagrande - next?
Opening up about their encounter which saw them have an emotional discussion in a lengthly piece in the Daily Mail, Piers said: "Ariana sat down with me and she said one really interesting thing".
"We had a really interesting conversation for two hours. We sat down and she said to me that the key thing she believed about feminism and the battle for equality and everything that's going on... was that woman need to bring men with them."
"When the debate strays into man denigration or man hating, it puts off a lot of guys."
"Whereas if women go, 'Look, we want fairness and equality, we want you to come with us, we want you to be part of this journey'..."I think that's a much better sales pitch to men."
The two had major beef earlier in the year when Ari's mum, Joan, stepped into defend Little Mix after he accused them trying to use sex to sell records, with Ari clapping back the presenter and sending him a 'thank u, next' in the process.
Ellen is an incredible & kind human being.. I use my talent AND my sexuality all the time because i choose to. women can be sexual AND talented. naked and dignified. it’s OUR choice. 🖤 & we will keep fighting til people understand. i say this w all due respect but thank u, next. https://t.co/wSknRSlJN8— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) November 21, 2018
