Ariana Grande Blasts DJs for Sexist Questions: 'You Need a Little Brushing Up on Equality'

Power 106
Ariana Grande's Power 106 interview

Ariana Grande is woman, hear her roar.

The "Focus" singer stopped by L.A.'s Power 106 station to chat with DJs Justin Credible and Eric D-Lux, who proved themselves to be anything but credible with their choice of questions. Grande has an upcoming album, a new single, Scream Queens and a duet with the legendary Andrea Bocelli to discuss but was instead asked which a girl could last without for longer: a phone or her makeup.

The 22-year-old singer was clearly annoyed by the questions but put on a brave -- albeit frustrated -- face as she called them out. Grande kept her poise, as only a singer used to media harassment could, as she responded to one of the DJs playfully, saying, "You need a little brushing up on equality."

Watch the full video below and resist the temptation to pull a Bieber and egg the radio station in response.

Grande's album Moonlight arrives in 2016, and she just released its first single, "Focus."
