In preparation for the release of her album Dangerous Woman, Ariana Grande hosted a live chat to give fans a chance to ask the singer about the upcoming album. One of the questions that came up involved Grande's decision to change the title of her album from Moonlight, which she said had to do with portraying herself as a stronger person.

“'Moonlight' is a lovely song and it’s a lovely title. It’s really romantic, and it definitely ties together the old music and the new music," Grande told fans. "But ‘Dangerous Woman’ is a lot stronger."

“I want to be empowering my fans," she added. "I feel like my personal growth is reflected in the sound. I’m really proud of it… To me, a dangerous woman is someone who’s not afraid to take a stand, be herself and to be honest.”
