Ariana Grande has a video of herself singing ‘Padam Padam’ with Kylie Minogue to celebrate London Pride.
London Pride took place over the weekend (Saturday, July 1), with many of the capital’s central streets closed to host musical and cultural acts, parades, concerts and more to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community.
That day, Grande took to her Instagram stories to post a now-defunct video of her lip-syncing and dancing to Minogue’s theme song with the caption: “Happy London Pride! I Love Youuuuu.”
The 30-year-old also praised Minogue, writing: “@kylieminogue you are perfect.” The message was decorated with Pride flags, noting that ‘Padam Padam’ has become very popular with the LGBTQIA+ community.
The Australian soap opera star has turned pop giant’s latest single into UK top 35 hit Minogue 10, after peaking at number eight on the British Top 40 chart. Also, many publications refer to ‘Padam Padam’ as a “gay song” and the word “Padam” is being used as a wild gay statement.
Vice President Kamala Harris is also seen dancing to the song. Last week he visited the Stonewall Inn in New York to support the LGBTQ community. In one video, TV titan Andy Cohen can be seen playing her “Song of the Summer,” and Harris can be seen saying, “I like it. I like it,” as she nods along to the song. .
Grande is known for her support for gender equality. He has led Pride events around the world and has always been vocal in his support for the community. Last year he pledged to donate up to $1.5 million to fight anti-trans laws in the United States.
“Padam Padam” is the lead single from Minogue’s highly-anticipated 16th album, “Tension,” due Sept. 22. The 55-year-old singer announced the record last month, at described as “a mixture of personal reflection, abandoned club and melancholic. high”.
Last February, a new podcast called Kylie: Behind The Seams premiered on all streaming platforms. Each episode explores a particular piece of clothing worn by the Australian pop star throughout her many years and what they mean to her fans.
Earlier that month, Grande spoke out against lengthy discussions about her body. He told TikTok, “We should be nicer and less comfortable commenting on people’s bodies.”
In her own post, Bella Hadid responded saying: “Instead of unwanted advice or opinions, judgments or attacks, just try to offer a helping hand and be kind.”
