Ariana Grande has joined the ranks of women denouncing misogyny.

The pop singer is steadily making her name in the music industry as of late. Her tracks have made their way in radio stations and to top it all off, she is set to perform in various cities around the world. Amid these entire buzz surrounding Grande, news headlines concerning the "One Last Time" singer have also focused on the men she is being involved with.

In a lengthy essay posted on her official Twitter page on June 7, Grande expressed her support for women rights and empowerment, insisting that she belongs only to herself and not to anyone else.

The post is the songstress' response to her recent The Sun interview wherein she said, "A girl can be friends with someone with a d--- and not hop on it," PEOPLE quoted.

"I'm tired of needing to be linked to a guy, I'm not Big Sean's ex, I'm not Niall's new possible girl. I'm Ariana Grande," the 21-year-old singer told the paper, as cited by PEOPLE.

The former Nickelodeon star further put an emphasis on her statement. Grande wrote on Twitter: "What I meant when I said what I said about not being [Big] Sean's ex is that I am tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man's past, present or future PROPERTY/POSSESSION. I...do not. Belong. To anyone. But myself. And neither do you."

Check out the snapshot of Grande's full Twitter post below.

Grande is now being linked to One Direction's Niall Horan after being spotted hanging out a few times together in the British singer's home and at a London burlesque club, Daily Mail reported. Prior to these, Horan attended Grande's concert at the O2 Arena and even commended her vocal prowess on Instagram.

In her statement posted on Twitter, Grande addressed these issues about the guys she is being linked with.

"I have clearly not been having the boy questions in my interviews lately because I have come to the realization that I have SO. MUCH. MORE. to talk about," she explained on the social media site.

Grande also mentioned feminism icon Gloria Steinem's article published on 1969 titled "After Black Power, Women's Liberation." The "Love Me Harder" singer insisted that after 46 years, a lot of things are still needed to be done to attain female rights.

According to Grande, she cannot wait to live in a world where everyone is seen "by their value as an individual," adding that people are "more than enough on their own." Taylor Swift praised Grande on Twitter, replying, "I'm so proud of you, always. But especially today."

Grande concluded her lengthy post by sharing a quote from Steinem, which reads: "Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke. She will need her sisterhood."
