‘Why Does She Have To Sell Herself?’ – Big Bang Actress Slams Singer’s Risqué Billboard

The actress said she did not want her young sons seeing the ads.


Big Bang star Mayim Bialik has hit out at Ariana Grande, saying that a new billboard featuring the singer in her underwear is unsuitable for her younger fans.

Bialik criticised the Problem star in a recent blog post, accusing Grande of trading on her looks to further her career and saying that she did not want her two young sons exposed to such imagery.

“There is one for Ariana Grande, and I will go ahead and admit I have no idea who she is or what she does. Based on the billboard, she sells lingerie. Or stiletto heels. Why is she in her underwear on this billboard though? And if she has a talent (is she a singer?), then why does she have to sell herself in lingerie? I mean, I know that society is patriarchal and women are expected to be sexy and sexually available no matter what we do in society, but I guess now I need to explain that to my sons?”

“Am I a crotchety old lady? I guess so. But I just don’t understand why this is what ads need to look like. Why do I have to be OK with young women literally in lingerie on gigantic billboards? If I want to see women in lingerie, I can walk through any mall with a Victoria’s Secret.”
