Ariana Grande has been busy on the ‘gram, you guys, and we ain’t complaining. Of late, the ‘7 Rings’, Grammy-award winning singer has been taking to the social media site to give us all a sneak peak at the behind-the-scenes activities from her world tour prep.
But before we get to that, Ari has also been detailing how she’s been coping with the rollercoaster ride that’s been her life lately. If you don’t know what we’re on about, Ariana Grande has been through a lot of ups and downs since the end of last year and the stress has taken a toll on her mental wellbeing in the past. This is why it was such a bold move for her to share with her fans on how she's been doing and to keep them in the loop. Talk about a caring, self-respecting woman.
"i just want to say how grateful i am for my life, for the people in it, for the ups and challenges, for the laughter and the pain, for this music and for the lifelong friendships i’ve made thru making it (that includes my friendship with y’all)"
"this music really saved my life and turned everything around. i’m still healing but i feel a lot lighter as of late and i think this is really going to be such a beautiful time. thank god we are doing this. i can’t imagine what else i’d do and i want you to know how thankful i am......"
"thank you. for everything. i am so deeply and eternally grateful. life is wild. but your love and this music make it feel so sweet. love u."
Now, let’s take a moment to pause and reflect on her very real, raw words (and maybe shed a small tear for how far she’s come).
Can you believe she almost wasn't feeling herself enough to cancel the tour? *Gasp*. Thankfully, all those bad feelings went away and Ari found solace in her work and her music. She states that the music saved her life and we totally stan.
Now back to the tour prep...
Here are some shots she posted of her crew:

Myron and Toulouse, her prized pooches have also been featured:
^Also, the same face we make every morning when we realise we've missed all the 12 alarms we set.
Here's some more pure unfiltered Ari goodness, quirks and all:
Brb, just going to purchase five winter coats so I can rock the Ari look, in the midst of this desert climate. Don't try and stop me.
We can't wait for the tour! Watch this space for more Ariana related news.
