According to the reports, the world famous singer Ariana Grande was reportedly forced to cancel a meet-and-greet with her fans ahead of a recent concert. The report says that, she had suffered a ‘handful of panic attacks’. She says, says her anxiety and depression have been at an “all-time high lately”. Before the tour, the singer is set to play dates in Glasgow, Birmingham, and London in the coming weeks as part of her Sweetener World Tour. After the anxiety attack, she sent an email to fans, who had paid for a meet and greet, informing about to cancel the meet and greet.
Other than the email, Grande revealed on Instagram that she did not feel it would be “wise” to interact with her fans. Thus it is not good to have interaction during the planned meet and greet and sound check session prior to the show.
Ariana Grande on Anxiety and Depression
On the other hand, the email says, she planned to “preserve energy for the show,” and because her “anxiety and depression have been at an all time high lately,” she needed to cancel Friday’s meet and greet, and the accompanying sound-check party. “I don’t want to rush through our time together or seem shaky,” she reportedly wrote. “I like spending actual time with you and I won’t be able to be present or give you the best of me today.”
Other than this, Ariana writes, “Time for some honesty. My depression and anxiety have been at an all-time high lately. I have been giving you all I’ve got and trying to push through as hard as I can and mask it.”
Besides that, it stated as, “I wish I had control over these attacks but as anybody with anxiety or depression understands, sometimes you can only operate on its terms and not your own.”
