Look up "high ponytail" in any thesaurus and the first synonym listed alphabetically will be "Ariana Grande." OK, that's not true — most thesauruses don't have entries for "ponytail," let alone "high ponytail," but if they did, it would only make sense to equate the style with the celebrity so closely associated with it. The sleek, super-long look has been Grande's signature hairdo for years. And why shouldn't it be? She looks amazing in it.
But clearly not everyone agrees with our glowing assessment, and one of those dissenters has apparently never heard the adage, "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all." On Monday, when stylist Mimi Cuttrell posted a photo of Grande and her fiancé, Pete Davidson, to show off the outfit she put together for her client, an Instagram user by the handle @mslovedovey felt it necessary to comment, "I’m sick of that ponytail."
Truly, is there anything braver than a social media user who makes an unsolicited negative comment about someone else's appearance while simultaneously having a private account with the default anonymous avatar? It's the Instagram equivalent of ding-dong ditch, except shittier.
The rude comment caught Grande's eye, and the "God Is a Woman" singer replied succinctly: "i'm not." In other words, Grande's hair doesn't exist to please anyone. The simple-yet-perfect clapback was noticed, screenshotted, and shared by Instagram account @commentsbycelebs.
As of publishing this story, 147 people have liked the @mslovedovey's comment on Cuttrell's original post, but 1,686 people have liked Grande's response. Many have also left comments celebrating both her hairstyle and her comeback. "OKAY QUEEN SNAP," one commenter said. "GOTTA RESPECT THE PONY," another wrote. Yet another said, "YOUR PONYTAIL IS ART!" (Grande's fans are super-into all-caps, evidently.)
Clearly, Grande's high ponytail isn't going anywhere any time soon, and if it eventually does, it will because she decided to change things up — not because of the opinion of a random Internet meanie. But if the person who expressed their ponytail fatigue is so desperate to see Grande with a new look, all they have to do is check out the recent covers of British Vogue and Elle, on which she wears her hair — gasp — down.
