Ariana Grande Shows Even When You’re On Top Of Your Game You Can Still Struggle With Mental Health

"I just feel empty."

Ariana Grande has experienced more horrible things than anyone should have to go through in a lifetime all in the space of two years. And she’s not afraid to say she’s struggling at the moment.

Just last week the singer performed a Coachella with *NSYNC and while it might appear to be an amazing time in her life, Ariana’s tweeted in response to a fan, saying “it is hell”.

The fan wrote, “Music is your therapy and I love seeing it heal you.” And in a since-deleted tweet, Ariana wrote, “Making it is healing. Performing it is like reliving it all over again and it is hell.”

Some fans then reached out and said they “wouldn’t even be mad” if she had to cancel the rest of her tour for her mental health, but she told them she “won’t do that” no matter how “confused and tired” she might be.

It comes after another fan wrote, “Baby is tour good for u and your health? Remember that: your happiness > seeing you on tour.”

Ari replied, “I don’t think it is [healthy]. It’s been [very] hard. I have [so much] 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 you all is so nice. But it’s hard emotionally. I wish it were a year ago. I’d give anything.”

She also responded to a fan who believed Ariana doesn’t want to deal with “negativity for a while” to which she responded, “i just feel empty and i wanna have more to say / better energy to give to u and [right now] i don’t have anything. love u.”

It’s no secret that Ariana has gone through some pretty horrible events in recent years and while she’s released a lot of new music to deal with it, she’s been very open with her mental state at the same time.

The singer even released a photo of brain scans showing a healthy brain and those affected by PTSD which are lit up. She then showed a photo of her brain scans and, like the PTSD images, her brain is mostly lit up.

Speaking with British Vogue about her mental health last year, she was asked if the anxiety she was experiencing was due to PTSD and she said, “I hate…yeah…admitting it, but it very much is.”

“That’s what everyone was telling me. It’s hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss. But, yeah, it’s a real thing. I know those families and my fans and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well.

“Time is the biggest thing. I feel like I shouldn’t even be talking about my own experience—like I shouldn’t even say anything. I don’t think I’ll ever know how to talk about it and not cry.”

“I think a lot of people have anxiety, especially right now. My anxiety has anxiety… I’ve always had anxiety. I’ve never really spoken about it because I thought everyone had it, but when I got home from tour, it was the most severe I think it’s ever been. Everybody thought I was crazy when I got home and wanted to hit the ground running.”

We just hope Ari knows when it’s time for her to take a break from work and that her fans will wholeheartedly support her if she ever did take time off from touring or making music.

She’s given so much to her fans and it might be time she takes care of herself.

Rest Assured Adele Of All People Knows How To Not Only Survive A Break-Up But Bloody Thrive From It

It's made her one of the most successful and highest-paid female musicians of our time.

In what is probably very sad news for Adele (but also very exciting news for many of her fans), it was confirmed this weekend that she and her husband Simon Konecki have split up after three years of marriage.

The ‘Rolling in the Deep’ singer’s representatives Benny Tarantini and Carl Fysh confirmed the news in an email statement to news agencies on Friday night.

“Adele and her partner have separated,” the statement said. “They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”

The British singer, who has always been private about her relationship with Simon, gave birth to their first and only child, a son named Angelo, in 2012.

They tied the knot in secret in 2016 after five years of dating, with Adele appearing to confirm they were married when she gave a shout out to the charity entrepreneur as she won Album of the Year for 25 at the 2017 Grammys.

“Grammys, I appreciate it. The Academy, I love you. My manager, my husband and my son you’re the only reason I do it,” she said.

She later explicitly told fans “I’m married now” during a concert in Australia in March 2017, during her world tour.

The pair was last seen together at an Elton John concert in January, with Adele more recently being spotted at a gay bar with Jennifer Lawrence in NYC in March. She was also spotted entering a recording studio in the same month sparking rumours she’s working on new music.

While this is no doubt a horrible time for Adele, the singer has experienced heartbreak before and has thrived off of it.

The Grammy winner’s most famous songs including ‘Someone Like You’, ‘Hello’, and ‘Set Fire To The Rain’, are all about heartbreak and you know what? It’s made her seriously successful.

Adele is one of the most successful and highest-paid female musicians of our time.

Her songs have billions of views on YouTube and her albums are diamond certified which the Recording Industry Association of America awards when 10 million copies have been sold.

Not only that, but those songs have gotten many of us through our own heartbreak and a lot of tears.

In 2017, Forbes reported Adele was the highest-paid Grammy nominee after earning $80.5 million from her album 25 as well as her touring.

They also reported that Adele’s influence reaches people who don’t traditionally buy music and the fact that she spaces out her albums makes fans want to buy her new music “even more”.

With her last album released in 2015, no doubt fans will go nuts when she chooses to release the next one.

We have no doubts that Adele’s breakup will only see her success and influence grow, especially when she’s surrounded by such badass women.

Justin Bieber's Putting His Health Before His Music So Don't Expect A Despacito Follow Up Anytime Soon

"I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have."

Justin Bieber has taken to Instagram to share a lengthy emotional caption about how he’s not releasing new music anytime soon and will be focusing instead on his health and family.

So, if you were looking forward to another Despacito-style banger, you’ll be waiting a while.

The 25-year-old explained he’d been receiving a lot of messages from fans saying they want a new album, but revealed he’s not in the mental state to focus on music at the moment.

He wrote, “I’ve toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour.

“I have been looking, seeking, trial and error as most of us do, I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be.

“Music is very important to me but Nothing comes before my family and my health. I will come with a kick ass album ASAP, my swag is undeniable and my drive is indescribable his love is supernatural his grace is that reliable…. the top is where I reside period whether I make music or not the king said… but I will come with a vengeance believe that.”

The post comes a week after sources revealed to People Magazine that Justin and Hailey Baldwin had postponed their wedding because the singer wants to focus on his health. The pair is technically already married, but they were planning on having a big wedding with their friends and family.

Last month a source told E! News Bieber is “battling depression” and been “having a difficult time”. They also added that he “really wants to get better” and “has been seeking all the help he can get”.

The publication also reports Justin is actively seeking professional help, “He is in outpatient therapy and getting help every day,” adding, “This is his focus right now.”

We’ve been seeing a new side to JB lately, and we wish him all the best as he works on himself!
