- Ariana Grande tweeted that she feels like performing her music and going on tour isn’t actually healthy for her.
- Ariana is currently on her Sweetener world tour and will perform at Coachella, again, this weekend.
Less than a week after Ariana Grande graced the stage at Coachella and surprised everyone when she brought out *NSYNC, she opened up about just how damaging performing and touring can be for her health.
On Thursday, Ariana saw a fan’s tweet that said, “Music is your therapy and I love seeing it heal you,” and she responded that it’s not really like that. Being totally candid, she wrote back, “Making it is healing. Performing it is like reliving it all over again and it is hell.” Ariana deleted the tweet shortly after, but some fan accounts took screenshots of the exchange.
After her fans got a glimpse into what it’s like for her to constantly be making music and performing, they reached out and told her they “wouldn’t be mad” if she had to cancel the rest of her tour for her own sake. But Ari said she “won’t do that” no matter how “confused and tired” she feels.
When talking about touring, she added:
“I don’t think it is [healthy]. It’s been v hard. I have sm 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.”
Before she logged off last night, Ariana also tweeted, “I just feel empty and i wanna have more to say / better energy to give to u and rn i don’t have anything. love u.”

It’s no secret that Ari has been going through it this past year-she got engaged to Pete Davidson and broke up with him months later, her ex-boyfriend and rapper Mac Miller passed away, she had to cover up a bunch of matching tattoos, and she put out an insane amount of music while dealing with all that. Plus, she’s also experiencing “terrifying” PTSD levels in her brain following the Manchester bombing in 2017.
So it’s totally understandable that she’s having a hard time processing everything and getting to a healthy place. Here’s hoping she’s able to do that, whether she continues with her tour or not.
