In the wake of the release of her new album, ‘Sweetener’, Ariana Grande has been on the road promoting it. In a recent interview, she got emotional while speaking about a number on the album which is dedicated to the victims of the 2017 attack at her concert in Manchester during which a number of her fans were injured and killed.
In an interview with Ebro for Beats 1, the singer started crying when she was asked about the tribute.
The single "Get Well Soon" is meant for those healing from Manchester but also for others going through hard times.
"It's just about being there for each other and helping each other through scary times and anxiety," she explained, wiping away her tears. "There's just some dark sh*t out there, man. We just have to be there for each other as much as we can. You just never f***ing know."
"It's also about personal demons and anxiety and more intimate tragedies as well," she continued. "Mental health is so important. People don't pay enough mind to it because we have things to do. We have schedules; we have jobs; we have kids and places to be, pressure to fit in, Instagram stories, whatever f***ing façade trying to keep up. People don't pay attention to what's happening inside."
She paused, apologising for "falling apart" and brushed away more tears saying: "It's why I felt like it was important to give people a hug, musically."
