Ariana Grande Reveals Touring Is ‘Hell,’ Tweets That She ‘Feels Empty’
Ariana Grande admitted performing is bad for her mental health.
The "thank u, next" singer, who's currently in the midst of her Sweetener Tour, revealed touring is "hell" and that performing is like reliving past trauma. Her revelation was the result of a fan tweeting, “Music is your therapy and I love seeing it heal you" — and though most of us expected her to agree, she actually opened up about just how hard it's been for her.
“Making it is healing, performing it is like reliving it all over again and it is hell," she responded.
In a second since-deleted tweet, she elaborated, writing, “Honestly. it’s been v hard. I have sm on my mind and it’s so heavy and no energy to process or work thru any of it but I’m trying hard. and I have the twins. and seeing u all is so nice. but it’s hard emotionally. I wish it were a year ago. I’d give anything.”
Grande also added that she feels “empty” and wishes she had “better energy” to give to her fans. "I just feel empty and I wanna have more to say / better energy to give to u and rn I don't have anything. love u," she wrote.
It's no secret the pop star has been through a lot in the last couple of years. Not only did she end her engagement to Pete Davidson but she lost her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, who died from an alleged accidental overdose in September.
On top of all that, she recently admitted she still suffers from "terrifying" PTSD levels in her brain following the Manchester attack that killed 22 people at her concert in 2017.
