The "Thank U, Next" singer was forced to cancel the latest stop on her tour due to health concerns.
Ariana Grande has been battling a nasty illness for quite some time, and it got the better of her. The singer tearfully announced she was too sick to perform her Lexington, Kentucky, performance and had to cancel.
The "7 Rings" artist candidly revealed Saturday that she started feeling sick in mid-October and that she was "in a lot of pain and it's difficult to breathe."
Ariana Grande got a new tattoo and fans are split between some liking it and not. Her tattoo is the name of her dog, Toulouse across her knuckles. The issue comes in with the mention of Mac Miller’s dog Myron in whether or not she should’ve gotten his name on her body too. Some fans think she should just stop getting tattoos period. Fans found out through her Instagram live where she showcases the tattoos. Her tattoo choices are her choices. You make not like all of them, but it is something she felt she needed so she got it. Especially, since they are seen as a form of self-expression on the body. Get more if you want.
She has a history of getting tattoos. When Grande and ex fiancé Pete Davidson we’re together, they got tattoos: “H2GKMO" (short for "Honest to God, knock me out") on her hands. Grande got his name tattooed on her fingers, but replaced with a dark heart after the break up. She has other tattoos on her hands include a heart and a cloud, along with another one that says "baby doll" inside of her right middle finger. Wow, tattoos are very common place now. Why don’t her fans like her having tattoos? It is very bizarre. They seem to want to control Ariana’s body. She is a grown woman.
Grande teased a reunion before her Atlanta concert Ever since Victorious landed on Netflix, fans have been in overdrive reminiscing on social media. The stars themselves, including Grande, have joined in. And after Grande canceled her Nov. 2015 show in Charlottesville, she was posted two hints to her Instagram Story: A quick shot of Jogia and Gillies in Victorious and a video of her and Bennett hanging out.
Grande then revealed that her Charlottesville performance would be a bit different, due to her illness. However, she wrote on the day of that she was “so excited” but she couldn’t tell fans why. Then, Gillies wrote back “Why?”
Is it because you think Atlanta's swell?
— Mark Barknark (@mattbennett) November 19, 2019 If you thought that was a hint, the next part got even more obvious. Grande RT’d Gillies and wrote “feeling: nervous” followed by emojis, a nod to the status updates Justice’s character would post on the Victorious. Bennett replied, writing, “Is it because you think Atlanta’s swell?” This is also a reference to the series when his character sings a song to Cat.
Before Grande even got onstage in Atlanta, attendees posted videos of the Victorious theme song, “Make It Shine,” playing. And Bennett, who was hanging out in the pit in front of the stage, joined in as they sang.
Matt Bennet with the crowd singing!! #SWTAtlanta
— All Things Ariana (@ailthingsariana) November 20, 2019 Bennett then came on stage to sing and play on his guitar, belting out the aforementioned song, “I Think You’re Swell.” After it, Grande said, “That was special, right?” before teasing “another surprise.”
.@lizgillies joined @arianagrande on stage to perform their iconic #Victorious duet "Give It Up" #SWTAtlanta
— Ariana Grande Today (@arianatoday) November 20, 2019 Gillies, who Grande called, “one of [her] best friends ever,” to sing “Give It Up,” which the two of them performed on Victorious together (see the above video). All in all, it was a pretty incredible reunion.
As if further proof was needed that Ari is smooth as butter, the singer stumbled and nearly face-planted during the second song of her show at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, on Sunday night (Nov. 24), but played it off like a champ.
“Thank you for making me feel loved when I fell earlier,” she said later in the show, laughing off the stumble, according to the Tampa Bay Times. “I had to fall. It’s been 87 shows and I haven’t fallen yet, so it had to happen."
The slip was caught on tape, of course, as Grande strutted across a platform in super-tall knee-high vinyl boots before flopping to her knees into the arms of a heads-up dancer who seamlessly caught her and kept the show going after somehow slipping and falling right on the beat. She felt pretty good about the play off, tweeting, "Oh my. at least I still made the button. i'm crying. things were going too well."
Ariana Grande is extremely close to her family, especially her mother Joan Grande... but her father Edward Butera has been absent from her life since her career kickstarted.
It's something that the pop star has addressed many times, most recently in her hit song 'thank u, next'.
Now, after 18 years of her family being apart on Thanksgiving, they have all reunited.
The singer took to her Instagram Stories to video how she spent the holiday, uploading a special selfie of herself with BOTH her parents which she captioned "first Thanksgiving with both of my parents in 18 years."
