Ariana Grande has been very open about how vital the writing and recording of her album thank u, next was to her mental health following a very tumultuous 2017 and in an honest and vulnerable new Instagram post she expressed how making this music literally saved her life.
She writes in part:
"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.
I told my team I wasn’t even in an okay enough place to tour or work at all and my friends, you guys and 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."
