Ariana Grande says her fans ‘saved’ her life and that she cannot wait to see all of them on tour, warning them that she will be crying a lot when she meets them.
The star will be going on the Sweetener World Tour in about two weeks. The singer posted a selfie on Instagram with a lengthy emotional note in which she said, “mmmmk …. about to embark on my third tour and am for sure deep as f**k in my feelings. and getting my period so…. this is probably gonna be too much.”
She added, “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).”
Referencing her two top albums, her split with Pete Davidson and Mac Miller’s death, she wrote, “i cant 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.”
She added, “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.”
She concluded by saying, “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.”
Grande’s tour officially starts on March 18 in New York.
