Ariana Grande is “very sick”.
The 26-year-old singer is currently battling with her health, which has left her struggling to “breathe” whilst on stage, and has caused her “throat and head” to be in “so much pain”.
Writing on her Instagram Story on Saturday (16.11.19) night, she said: “so I’m still very sick. I’ve been sick since the last London show. I don’t know how it’s possible but my throat and head are still in so much pain. I sound okay I’m just in a lot of pain and it’s difficult to breathe during the show.”
The ‘7 Rings’ hitmaker was due to take to the stage in Lexington, Kentucky, on Sunday (17.11.19), and has said her performance could be in jeopardy if her health doesn’t improve. And as it turns out, Grande had to cancel the show due to her poor health.
According to a report on E! News, she said, “I woke up kind of 10 times worse and it hurts so bad to swallow,” Grande explained in an Instagram Story, with a raspy voice. “I’m not really sure what’s going on. But, I, unfortunately, don’t think I will be able to push through tonight.”
“I am so sad and sorry. I’m so upset but of course obviously, you will be refunded,” she continued, trying to hold back the tears. “I’m just really devastated… Thank you for understanding and sending love… I will keep you posted as soon as I know what is going on with my body. Thank you for understanding and I am so sorry.”
A day before announcing the cancellation of her show, she took to social media to share the state of her health with fans. She continued: “I am seeing my doctor and trying my v best to get better for tomorrow’s show. the last thing I would ever want to do is cancel a show at this point with so few left. I’m truly cherishing every moment of this.
“I just really don’t know what’s happening with my body right now and need to figure it out. please take this as a gentle heads up. I don’t want anyone to feel blindsided tomorrow if god forbid I can’t make the show happen. love you with all my heart and will keep you posted. ”
She went on to Twitter to thank her fans for their patience.
And whilst Ariana is struggling with her physical health, she recently said her mental health has improved, as she reflected on the 12 months since she released ‘Thank U, Next’ – in which she examines her past relationships with the likes of former fiance Pete Davidson and late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller – and said she had “learned and healed”.
She said: “Happy birthday ‘thank u, next’. I can’t believe I’ve spent more time alone this year than I have in my life, I can’t believe how many sessions w my therapist I’ve had, how many times I’ve sung this song, how much I’ve learned and healed, how much I still have to learn and heal.”
