She’s at the peek of her musical career. However, touring for Ariana Grande is not as pleasing as it may be for you. Earlier this week, the singer opened up about her mental health, revealing that performing her songs live has taken a serious toll.
When asked by a fan if touring is healthy for her, Ari replied, “I don’t think it is. Honestly. It’s been very hard.”
“I have so much on my mind and it’s so heavy and no energy to process or work through any of it but I’m trying hard,” she wrote on Twitter. The singer continued, “and seeing you all is so nice. But it’s hard emotionally. I wish it were a year ago. I’d give anything.”
From the aftermath of the Manchester attack— which resulted in PTSD for the singer— to the tragic death of her ex Mac Miller, and her whirlwind romance with Pete Davidson, the 26-year-old transformed all of these experiences into critically acclaimed hits.
“Making [music] is healing,” Grande admitted in a separate tweet, but admitted “performing it is like reliving it all over again.”
No wonder why touring for Ariana Grande is hell!
