She’s banked a rumored $8 million for headlining the Coachella music festival in Indio, California.
And on Thursday, Ariana Grande claimed that performing her new songs from her Sweetener and Thank U Next ‘is hell.’
In a Twitter exchange with fans, according to UsWeekly, the singer explained that ‘making’ the deeply personal tracks was ‘healing’ but singing them for a live audience ‘is like reliving it all over again and it is hell.’
It’s been a tough couple of years for the 25-year-old; her May 2017 concert in Manchester, England, was the target of a ᴅᴇᴀᴅly terror attack and in 2018, she broke up with rapper Mac Miller, got engaged to SNL star Pete Davidson, called off the engagement and had to deal with the overdose death of Miller.
Her Twitter comments made some of her fans worry that she was going to cancel her Sweetener Tour that kicked off last month but the hitmaker quickly reᴀssured them she would continue with the concerts.
She tweeted: ‘I just am sharing. it’s hard and i’m trying and my soul is confused and tired and i love u.’
She went on: ‘Having a routine is good for ptsd. been readin bout it. i would be sad without the shows too. imma be ok. might change the set list a lil.’
Grande has since deleted the tweets, UsWeekly reported.
The 7 Rings singer kicked off her tour in Albany, New York, on March 18.
During the show she paid tribute to her former boyfriend Mac Miller who died from an accidental drugs overdose last September.
Grande will play gigs across the US and Canada until mid-July and then take the tour to Europe starting on August 17 in London, England, and ending October 13 in Zurich, Switzerland.
Not on the list of venues is Manchester, England, where back in May 2017, her concert was targeted in a terrorist attack. Twenty-two people died and around 500 others were injured.
