Ariana Grande Slays NYC Pride at Dance on the Pier Show
If you've ever wondered whether Chaka Khan's "I'm Every Woman" and Madonna's "Vogue" could be combined into one spectacular mashup, we're here to tell you that it can, and it has. Ariana Grande delivered a lively and energetic performance of the two songs during her performance at NYC Pride's Dance on the Pier last night (June 28), marking a culmination of the annual Pride celebrations taking place around the city.
Decked out in a black latex crop top with matching hot pants, Ariana swung her signature high-ponytail about, channeling all of Chaka, Whitney and Madonna with her vocals. It should be noted that neither song is easy to pull off, yet Ariana breezed right through them without so much as a struggle note. She also managed not to trip all over herself in the process, despite thigh-high heeled boots that might have sent a lesser pop star falling to her knees.
It was a fitting punctuation mark for 2015's Pride celebrations, as Ariana also referenced the Supreme Court's recent milestone ruling in favor of the legalization of gay marriage across the country. She went a step beyond uttering a few words of exultation, putting the four Supreme Court justices who voted against marriage equality on blast.
Ariana said (quote via MTV), "Make some noise if you’re proud to love who you love. Make some noise if you’re proud to be an American. Make some noise if you think the Supreme Court justices who voted against gay marriage should get their heads out of their f---ing asses and join the goddamn celebration. Make some noise if you’re got one less problem without them motherf---ers."
