Ariana Grande Shares Statement After Crying Onstage: ‘Thank You For Accepting My Humanness’

One Love Manchester Benefit Concert

After being overwhelmed by emotion while performing “R.E.M.” from her Sweetener album at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis Saturday night (July 6, 2019), Ariana Grande took to social media (in a new deleted post) to put out a statement and thank fans for their support.

“Tour is wild. Life is wild,” she wrote. “i’m grateful for the sea of love I have around me everyday and for the people who come to these shows and give us every ounce of energy they’ve got….i’m grateful for the opportunity to sing to thousands of people every night. it’s a dream come true. no matter how hard it gets or how many feelings come up that are screaming at me to be processed and sorted through one day, i’m grounded by gratitude and promise not to give up on what i’ve started.”

Grande also admitted that she “feel[s] everything very intensely” and that she “committed to doing this tour during a time in my life when I’m still processing a lot,” adding, “sometimes I cry a lot! i thank you for accepting my humanness. i’m not sure what i did to deserve to meet so many loving souls each night/to feel so much love, but i want you to know that it really does carry me through.”

This past May, it was the two-year anniversary of the Manchester Arena bombing.

Two months after Ariana and Pete Davidson called off their four-month engagement in October, she reportedly rushed to see him at NBC’s 30 Rock, where SNL is filmed, following the comedian’s Instagram post where he wrote, “I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore.”

Then, of course, Ariana continues to try and come to terms with the death of Mac Miller, who died on September 7, 2018 of an accidental drug overdose at the age of 26.

And those are, at least, the issues she’s dealing with that we know about.

Grande’s supporters expressed concern for her on social media in April and with this most recent incident. Many were urging her to take time away from the spotlight to heal.

“I will not put myself in harms way. I’m healing thru this experience & happy to be doing it with u by my side,” Grande tweeted in May. “Sometimes we have waves of sadness! that’s okay. I’m not afraid of it.”

tour is wild. life is wild. i’m grateful for the sea of love i have around me everyday and for the people who come to these shows and give all of us every ounce of energy they’ve got. i’m grateful to work with the best musicians and dancers in the world. i’m grateful for my voice and my team. i’m grateful for this music. i’m grateful for my tour bus driver, Kurt who bought me pickles yesterday because he saw we ran out. i’m grateful for the opportunity to sing to thousands of people every night. it’s a dream come true. no matter how hard it gets or how many feelings come up that are screaming at me to be processed and sorted through one day, i’m grounded by gratitude and promise not to give up on what i’ve started. i feel everything very intensely and have committed to doing this tour during a time in my life when i’m still processing a lot … so sometimes i cry a lot! i thank you for accepting my humanness. i’m not sure what i did to deserve to meet so many loving souls every night / to feel so much love, but i want you to know that it really does carry me through. i feel it and i appreciate it. and all of you so much.
i’m sharing this because i’m grateful and because i want you to know that if you too are hurting, you can push through and are not alone. it is hard to balance taking care of the people around you, doing your job, and healing / taking care of yourself at the same time… but i want you to know, you aren’t alone and i think you’re doing great.
love you.
