Ariana Grande on Justin Bieber Photo: "Girls are Allowed to be Friends with Guys"

Ariana Grande on Justin Bieber Photo:

She”s taking some backlash from Justin Bieber”s fans after posting a pic on Twitter, and now Ariana Grande is standing up for herself.

Earlier this month, the former “Victorious” star shared a snapshot of Justin planting a kiss on her cheek, which quickly had “Beliebers” firing back with angry tweets.

“Everyone, girls are allowed to be friends with guys,” the 20-year-old actress/singer proclaimed on Twitter. “I”m a lady. Chill out.”

During her recent interview with MTV, Miss Grande explained the story behind the snapshot.

“I went to meet and greet with my grandparents, because my nonna has a massive crush on Justin Bieber,” she explained. “I took my phone and I was smiling, and he kissed me on the cheek. I didn”t know what to do. I just walked out of the room. I got shy.”

Ariana continued, “Then Justin tweeted me, “Post that pic.” So I just did it, but everyone was like, “Oh my gosh a kiss on the cheek. I”m like, can you not Come on!”

Although she was in a relationship with Australian star Jai Brooks, Miss Grande and Jai broke up after the photo produced large amounts of gossip and rumors.
