Ariana Grande just stopped a concert mid-song for a fan
Before Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin, there was Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson - and by that I mean - another couple who proceeded to shack up after a whirlwind romance. Certainly, while 2018 has seen many carcasses of relationships we once labelled "golden", these two engagements have helped prove that love isn't wholly over.
But while Ariana seems completely devoted to her new beau, this doesn't mean that she loves her fans any less. She made a surprise appearance at Coachella this year, and when speaking about the song Get Well Soon on Sweetener, Ariana professed that she wanted to "hug" all of her fans to make them feel less alone. Awww, right?
Now, it's been reported that the 25-year-old stopped mid-song for a fan while performing her new album in Los Angeles - and she did so for the best reason.
While performing at a concert in Los Angeles, Ariana took fan appreciation to another level by stopping mid-song for a fan in the audience. Why? Because they shouted, "Start again I wasn't recording!"
Life in the social media age, eh?
Ariana, to her fans' disbelief, did actually stop, asking "Did you say 'start again I wasn't recording'?... Are you ready now?" and then restarted the song for the audience member who hopefully had their phone at the ready.
Watch the entire exchange here...
While everything may be rainbows and sunshine with Pete Davidson, it wasn't always this way for Ariana.
After their breakup, Ariana's ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, was arrested for drunk driving, crashing into a pole and attempting to flee the scene on foot - all with a blood alcohol content that was twice the legal limit. And it's something that many people attribute to his split from the pop-star.
In fact, some of Ariana's fans have gone so far as to insinuate that the pop-star was responsible for Miller's meltdown. A tweet which went viral read: "Mac Miller totalling his G wagon and getting a DUI after Ariana Grande dumped him for another dude after he poured his heart out on a ten song album to her called the divine feminine is just the most heartbreaking thing happening in Hollywood."
Of course, Ariana was having none of this. She responded to the tweet with an impassioned note, wherein she asserted that her relationship with the American rapper was "toxic".
"How absurd that you minimize female self-respect and self-worth by saying that someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them, which [by the way] isn’t the case (just 'Cinderella' is [about] me)," she wrote.
"I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be. I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety & prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course) but shaming/blaming women for a man’s inability to keep his shit together is a very major problem. Let’s please stop doing that. Of course I didn’t share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening, but it was. I will continue to pray from the bottom of my heart that he figures it all out and that any other woman in this position does as well."
Well, it looks like Ariana is certainly living her best life now...
