Doughnut-hating pop star Ariana Grande made quite a fool of herself this week. A bakery’s surveillance video recorded her acting like a total brat, making out with her boyfriend (who is on her payroll as a backup dancer) and then ostensibly trying to impress her fawning entourage with the utterly revolting act of licking a tray of donuts that had been left on a bakery counter. Real rebel, that Grande!

When the bakery worker brought out another tray of large doughnuts that had red, white and blue frosting (it was July 4th weekend), Grande shrieked, “What the f–k is that? I hate Americans. I hate America!”

Her statement on the incident, which came 24 hours after the video leaked, was the typical non-apology offered by an ill-tempered and perfectly foolish Hollywood starlet. She said (bracketed comments mine), “I am EXTREMELY [Caps lock! Nice touch] proud to be an American and I’ve always made it clear that I love my country [except when I say I hate it]. What I said in a private moment with my friend, who was buying the doughnuts [Blame the soon-to-be-fired backup singer . . . I mean, friend. Nice], was taken out of context [Out of context? Was the word “cheese” muttered under her breath? Maybe she actually said, ”I hate American cheese.”] and I am sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words.”

If she’d stopped there, I might have forgiven the pint-sized tyrant. But she (or more likely her eager press representative) decided to turn this frown upside down with some social commentary, adding: “As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole.”

So it’s not Grande’s fault, but American society as a whole for being so disgusting and indulgent as to eat red-white-and-blue doughnuts. But wait, let’s not forget, Grande was patronizing a doughnut shop and was caught tongue fondling the very items she thinks are so disgusting. Grande’s statement and her actions make it abundantly clear that she believes she and those she deems worthy are exempted from the sin of eating thoughtlessly. And while noting “the consequences” of consuming unhealthy food, Grande is entirely indifferent to the consequences of adding her own disgusting bodily fluids to a tray of food to be sold to other customers. (In fact, the doughnut shop just failed a health inspection as a result of Grande’s behavior).

But Grande’s anti-obesity tripe didn’t end there. She threw in some statistics because, as I’m sure her press representative told her, “statistics will make you look smart.” She says: “The fact that the United States has the highest child obesity rate in the world frustrates me. We need to do more to educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of overeating and the poison we put in our bodies. We need to demand more from our food industry.”

Of course, Grande wasn’t buying some mass-produced item at the local grocery store. She was patronizing a small business that probably makes fresh doughnut on a daily basis. Unhealthy, perhaps if you eat a dozen a day, but hardly a part of the larger food industry that she rails against.

It’s easy to take a swipe at the food industry—an industry that has voluntarily cut calories, fat, salt and sugar from many of its products as well as developed healthier products that consumers are increasingly demanding. The food industry has become a familiar target for food activists and likely Grande was hoping to rally support from those who turn their nose up indulgences such as doughnuts. But the “Hooray for Ariana Grande for ruining a tray of high-calorie donuts!” battle cry hasn’t yet materialized from the food police.

Ariana Grande’s apology made no mention of her licking the doughnuts. No apology was made to the bakery, which now might face an investigation by health inspectors (according to regulations, trays of donuts shouldn’t be left open on the counter—due to concerns about Grande-like tongue washings). But this doesn’t matter to Grande, who has no concept of what it’s like to run a business. She’ll likely never work in a doughnut shop, wait tables, or ever again need to apply for a minimum wage job.

She’ll continue to crank out mediocre, overly produced music that attracts a young, doughnut-loving crowd and make political causes out of her own mistakes. It makes me miss the days of Britney and Paris flashing while exiting their cars.
