Grande made sure we all heard her roar during a dumb as shit and painful 30 minute radio interview with two stupid DJs on California’s Power 106 FM—and you can watch the video right here on Popdust.
After suffering through a slew of progressively stupider and stupider, inane questions, about make-up, selfies, girls’ supposed addiction to non-stop texting and love of unicorn emojis—yep, really—the 22-year-old decided it was time to school Justin Credible and Eric D-Lux in a couple of slightly more important subjects, like misogyny and sexism.
The choice interaction that proved to be the straw that broke the camel’s back, and subsequently led to the double DJ douches’ impromptu schooling, included:
Makeup or cell phone:
One of the double DJ douches: If you could use makeup or your phone one last time, what would you pick?
Grande: Is this what you think girls have trouble choosing between?
One of the double DJ douches: yes
Grande: Is this men assuming that that’s what girls would have to choose between?
One of the double DJ douches: Yes. Not a question.
The other one of the double DJ douches: Can you really go anywhere without your cell phone?
One of the double DJ douches: How long can you go without looking at Twitter?
Grande: Many hours. Many hours. Absolutely.
One of the double DJ douches: I don’t believe it.
Grande’s claim that she is more than capable of not checking her phone for extended periods of time:
Grande: When I’m at a dinner table, I like to be present—with eye contact—and talking.
One of the double DJ douches: Listen and learn, ladies!
Grande: Boys, learn! Come on. Boys and girls. We can all learn.
All the amazing new emojis that are available these days:
Grande: The unicorn is great, obviously.
One of the double DJ douches: Girls.
Grande: Boys. Many boys use the unicorn.
One of the double DJ douches: Well, boyeees…
Grande: You need a little brushing up on equality over here...Who says a unicorn emoji isn’t for men? Come on.
One of the double DJ douches: Is it? I’ve never used the unicorn emoji.
One of the double DJ douches: I say no.
Grande: All right, I’ve changed my mind. I don’t wanna hang out at Power 106 anymore.
What problem Grande most wants to fix in the world:
Grande: I have a long list of things I’d like to change...I think, judgement in general. Intolerance, meanness, double standards, misogyny, racism, sexism.
You know, all that shit. There’s lots we’ve got to get started on. That’s what we need to focus on. We’ve got work to do.
We’ll start with [you double DJ douches], though.
Boo Yah! You go girl!

There's an entire genre of YouTube videos that consists of nothing but news bloopers, and they're equal parts hilarious and panic-inducing.
"Right after the break, we're going to interview Erik Weihenmayer, who climbed the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, but he's gay—I mean, he's gay, excuse me, he's blind."
Back in the early 2000's a young news anchor in New Mexico had a slip of the tongue on live TV that has enterred the annals of news blooper history.

Cynthia Izaguirre had just gotten done reporting on a separate story discussing activism for gay rights, and was setting up a segment with the first blind man to climb Mount Everest, and her thoughts got twisted on the way to her mouth, resulting in a 14-second clip that would live on in infamy.
