Ariana Grande begs for 'just one okay day' in emotional Twitter thread, and fans are concerned
It's been a turbulent couple of years for Ariana Grande. On one hand, she found love with SNL comedian Pete Davidson, and her music career has exploded. She went from a former Disney Channel actress to one of the biggest pop stars on the planet. On the other hand, she's had to deal with unspeakable tragedy. During her 2017 concert in Manchester, a terrorist suicide bombed the crowd, killing 22 people, and injuring 59. Then, this year, Ariana's ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, tragically died from an apparent overdose.
Ariana dated Mac for two years, and reportedly their relationship turned toxic. After they broke up, Mac spiraled, crashing his G-Wagon into a utility pole while drunk driving. The accident followed reports of Ariana dating Pete, leading fans to suspect the events were related. Yet there was no bad blood. Ariana sent messages of love and support on social media. When the news broke that Ariana and Pete were engaged, Mac told Apple Music's Zane Lowe, "It’s all positive energy. I am happy for her and [the fact that she’s] moving forward with her life, just as I’m sure she is with me." That was in late July. On September 7, he died.
After the 26-year-old rapper's death, Ariana mourned Mac by posting an emotional video tribute on Instagram. "i adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will, "wrote the singer in the caption. "i can’t believe you aren’t here anymore... i’m so mad, i’m so sad i don’t know what to do. you were my dearest friend. for so long. above anything else. i’m so sorry i couldn’t fix or take your pain away. i really wanted to. the kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved. i hope you’re okay now. rest."
Following these traumatic events, Ariana's representative issued a statement, explaining she was taking a break: "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."
But the 25-year-old singer hasn't disappeared from social media. A new Instagram post revealed that Ariana's taking care of Mac's adorable dog, Myron. This post was followed by a string of hopeful messages on Twitter, presumably aimed at Mac. "love u i'm thinking of u," she wrote. "everything will be okay... i love u so v much (sic)."
Today Ariana was not feeling so hopeful, though. In an emotional thread, she begged, "Can I pls have one okay today. just one. pls." Also, she replied "j fucking k" to her old tweet, where she said "everything will be ok." Then she followed that up with "nothing will be ok." The last message in the string reads, "ty [thank you] for loving me sm [so much] i do not deserve it." (She later deleted some of these tweets.)
Fans were quick to comfort the singer and let her know she is loved. So send her some positive vibes! Whether you're rich or poor, old or young, famous or not, we all have to deal with dark days at some point. Ariana replied to one well-wisher, writing, "ur angels in my life. it’s just been a tough month. i’m trying to get my work done and get back to normal and it’s hard and i’m human and tired. sorry i let u in or worried u. i shouldn’t have tweeted. i kno better."
