Since the passing of Mac Miller and her announcement that she'd be focusing on making new music and going into cave mode, a lot of arianators have been wondering how long it will actually be until we hear/see Ariana on the road and out there again. Apparently it's coming sooner than we think! During an exchange with a couple fans, she revealed that she isn't into the idea of doing eras anymore, and would prefer to just put out new music as the inspiration strikes her. Personally, I feel like eras are incredibly important. They act as a snap shot of that particular artist in that particular moment in time. Maybe when an artist reaches the level of legend or they don't have the money making machine of a label behind them they can do it "whenever the mood strikes," but I feel a big part of that connection to your fans and cementing yourself as an icon comes from having those legendary eras. How do you feel?
it ain’t ova ! i don’t really like “era’s”. i jus wanna make music and drop it whenever and perform it. i don’t want to conform to the like ... ‘routine’ or like ‘formula’ anymore. i love music i ain’t waiting another 2 years to drop it. i want to share it w u when it’s freshhh— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) October 9, 2018
