After what's been a pretty rough (putting it EXTREMELY lightly) last couple of years, Ariana Grande is apparently planning on stepping back from the lime light, and taking some time out for herself. Between the Manchester bombing, a break up with a first love, the passing of said first love, I think we can all agree that that is the absolute best thing she could do right now. Ariana's team gave the following statement to People Magazine:
“Given the events of the past couple of years, Ariana is going to take some much needed time to heal and mend. She will be staying close to home and using this period to spend time with her loved ones and work on new music without deadline. She thanks her fans for their understanding.”
As much as I love parts of Sweetener, I don't need to see it live in person just yet. Hopefully not touring and just focusing on her mental/spiritual health will get her wherever she needs to be. For more on what her team had to say, click here.
