- Ariana Grande just got really candid on Instagram and shared that she's "still healing" after the past few months.
- Ari is about to go on tour for Sweetener, which looked like it wasn't going to happen for a while.
- Fun fact: Ariana's ex Ricky Alvarez will be joining her on tour.
Ariana Grande is about to embark on her Sweetener world tour, and a couple of days ago she took to Instagram to share her many emotions about it.
She writes that "a few months ago...I wasn't even in an okay enough place to tour or work" and that "music really saved my life." Ari also adds that "I'm still healing but I feel a lot lighter as of late."
She doesn't mention exactly what she's still healing from, but if we look back a few months she could be referring to her breakup with ex-fiancé Pete Davidson or the death of her ex Mac Miller, which Ariana took really hard.
Here is Ari's full caption:
"Mmmmk....about to embark on my third tour and am for sure deep as fuck in my feelings. And getting my period so...This is probably gonna be too much. But i just want to say how grateful I am for my life, for the people in it, for the ups and challenges, for the laughter and the pain, for this music and for the lifelong friendships I’ve made thru making it (that includes my friendship with y’all)...Maaaaaaaan...I can't really fathom all that has happened over the past few years. I don't even really know where I’m going with this post but I'm just grateful to be here still. And excited to see you. I'm prolly gonna cry a lot. A few months ago I told my team I wasn't even in an okay enough place to tour or work at all and my friends, you guys, and this music really saved my life and turned everything around. I'm still healing but I feel a lot lighter as of late and I think this is really going to be such a beautiful time. Thank god we are doing this. I can't imagine what else I'd do and I want you to know how thankful I am...Anyway. I'm gonna go focus on finishing this show for y'all and put my phone away for a little (how much u wanna bet I don't last a day) so I don't ruin all the surprises. Thank you. For everything. I am so deeply and eternally grateful. Life is wild. But your love and this music make it feel so sweet. Love u."
Sending love to Ariana, and SO excited about the tour!
