Singer Ariana Grande wants male singers and rappers to stop using derogatory sexist terms in their songs.

The 22-year-old singer wants to put an end to the use of derogatory terms used by rappers and musicians in their tracks, as well as in real life, to address the opposite sex and insists the vulgar trend needs to “go away soon,” reported Female First.

“When men talk about women in songs it’s like, ‘Oh, hell yeah b******’. And if a girl makes a song about a break up then it’s like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe she did that!’ Whether it’s the music industry or real-life we need to break the standard and it needs to go away soon.”

The “Dangerous Woman” hitmaker, who previously dated rapper Big Sean and has worked with Chris Brown, both known for using sexist terms in their songs, likes to see women stick up for themselves and she believes talking about the issue is the only way it will ever get resolved.

“I love seeing women be more vocal about these things because it is the only thing that will make a change – being really honest and speaking up. It’s about being supportive of one another and keeping your friends close. Most of my friends are from home. They would kick my ass if I ever let anything go to my head,” she said.

Grande split from Sean, 28, last April after eight months together and she is now dating back-up dancer Ricky Alvarez.
