Ariana Grande says she’s unsure of ‘Sweetener’ tour plans because being away for long periods is ‘scary’

The pop star released her latest album in August

Ariana Grande has spoken out about her ‘Sweetener‘ tour plans, saying she isn’t sure whether she will take the album on the road.

The pop star released her latest album in August. In a four-star review, NME said: “Ariana’s such a star that she can turn some of the album’s most left-field cuts into effortlessly charming pop gold.”

Grande shared her feelings with her fans on Twitter on Friday (September 28), saying she was feeling “antsy. “Can’t sit still,” she wrote. “i wanna tour now. yesterday i jus wanted to sit home forever but today i wanna do show and see u. it’s all v up n down rn. but hi. ily. i am working on it. i’ll keep ya posted.”

A fan replied to her telling her they didn’t want her to “regret” touring. The singer responded: “id never regret it. my happiest moments are with y’all and on stage and stuff. i think it’s just the looooooong chunks of time away from home that are scary to me rn. hi i’m being too honest and people r gonna tear me apart but idc anymore. lol.”

Grande had previously tweeted earlier this week asking for “one okay day”. Her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller died on September 7 due to a suspected overdose, while, last year, her concert at Manchester Arena was targeted by a suicide bomber who killed 22 people.

“Maybe I’ll do a mini [tour],” she added. “i cant do what i did last time right now. that i do know. whatever it is i hope it’s okay with you. i just love and miss you. everybody telling me i need to take time but i’m so antsy. idk. ily.”

SNL creator Lorne Michaels recently revealed Grande was due to be the first musical guest on the first episode of the new season but had pulled out due to “emotional reasons”. Kanye West replaced her.

Earlier this month (September 4), the star returned to the UK for an intimate show at London’s KOKO. It was the first time she had performed in the country since the One Love Manchester concert – the benefit gig she organised in aid of victims of the Manchester bombing.
