"We live in a day and age where people make it IMPOSSIBLE for women, men, anyone to embrace themselves exactly how they are. Diversity is sexy! Loving yourself is sexy!"

Ariana Grande is using her large social platform to speak out about body shaming.

The singer saw an Instagram comment that compared her to Modern Family actress Ariel Winter. Grande shared a long response that highlighted how important it is to respect people's differences. "We live in a day and age where people make it IMPOSSIBLE for women, men, anyone to embrace themselves exactly how they are. Diversity is sexy! Loving yourself is sexy!" she wrote, in part.

Grande captioned her long message by writing, "here we go again.... Sure I'm not the only 1 feeling this way today!! in case you need a reminder, you're beautiful."

Her fans loved the reminder. Also impressed? Winter herself.
