Critics like Piers Morgan have hit out at the young girl-group for 'using their nudity to sell records', but Thank U, Next singer Ariana Grande quickly stood up for them and women everywhere saying "I use my talent AND my sexuality because I choose to. Women can be sexual AND talented. Naked and dignified. it's OUR choice. & we will keep fighting til people understand. I say this w all due respect but thank u, next." 

"Keep fighting the fight divas @LittleMix. Your sisters have your back," @she continued. "Also, @piersmorgan, I look forward to the day you realize there are other ways to go about making yourself relevant than to criticize young, beautiful, successful women for everything they do. I think that'll be a beautiful thing for you and your career or what's left of it."
