Nice to see Ariana Grande using her mouth for something besides spitting on donuts and trash-talking America.

The “Focus” singer tore into interviewers Justin Credible and Eric Dlux during a recent interview on Los Angeles radio station Power 106 FM, after the pair deluged her with sexist comments.

“If you could use makeup or your phone one last time, which one would you pick?” Grande was asked.

“Is this what you think girls have trouble choosing between?” Grande shot back. “Is this men assuming that that’s what girls would have to choose between?”

Later, the conversation turned to emojis — and, specifically, whether males would be inclined to use a unicorn emoji.

“Many boys use the unicorn,” Grande asserted, when it was suggested that the unicorn emoji is used only by females. “You need a little brushing up on equality over here … Who says a unicorn emoji isn’t for men? Come on!”

Later asked which problem in the world she would solve if she could, Grande rattled off a laundry list of societal ailments, including racism, sexism, intolerance, double standards and misogyny — but took the opportunity to lob another heap of judgment at her questioners.

“We’ll start with you, though,” Grande said as she pointed at Dlux. “I’m upset with him. I’m very upset over this unicorn emoji [discussion].”
