The singer announced that she'll be taking "much needed time to heal and mend"
Ariana Grande took to Twitter last night to ask for ‘one okay day’ after telling her fans she has endured a “tough month”.
The singer was set to appear at the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles last week (17 September) with her fiancé Pete Davidson but pulled out after recent events. “Contrary to reports, Ariana will not be attending the Emmys tonight,” a team member confirmed at the time. “Pete has also opted to not attend to be with her in New York.”
“Given the events of the past couple of years, Ariana is going to take some much needed time to heal and mend. She will be staying close to home and using this period to spend time with her loved ones and work on new music without deadline. She thanks her fans for their understanding.”
Grande’s ex-partner, rapper Mac Miller passed away earlier this month due to a suspected overdose. In 2017, the star had just finished performing at Manchester Arena when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device, killing 22 people and injuring 59.
Yesterday (September 27), Grande replied to a fan account on Twitter, writing: “ur angels in my life. it’s just been a tough month. i’m trying to get my work done and get back to normal and it’s hard and i’m human and tired. sorry i let u in or worried u. i shouldn’t have tweeted. i kno better.”
“can i pls have one okay day. just one. pls.” she later tweeted, adding, “i’m so tired pls.”
“ty for loving me sm i do not deserve it,” another tweet read, before Grande signed off with a simple, “ily.” You can see those tweets below.
Earlier this year, the singer opened up about her struggles with anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder following the suicide bomb attack at her concert at the Manchester Arena.
“I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well,” she added. “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.”
