Ariana Grande is grateful for her hit single “thank u, next,” which made its debut one year ago. On November 3, the “Into You” songstress took to Twitter to commemorate its anniversary. She also spoke about the journey the tune brought her on over the past year. Ariana, 26, penned “thank u, next” about her past relationships, and called it a moment of self-realization as she healed.
"Happy birthday ‘thank u, next,'” Ariana tweeted on November 3. “I can't believe I've spent more time alone this year than I have in my life, I can't believe how many sessions with my therapist I've had, how many times I've sung this song, how much I've learned and healed, how much I still have to learn and heal,” she said.
Ariana spent most of the past year on her Sweetener word tour, and is grateful for her fans’ support along the way. “It’s been one hall of a productive, emotional, wild and yet...happy! year. Thankful for my babies who have provided me with endless strength, energy and inspiration...and to my friends who have held me together on the road and at home. I'm sure they’re just as exhausted lmao," she wrote.
The “Don’t Call Me Angel” singer also dropped hints about her love life. “Update: I still don’t know s**t about love or have a clue what a personal life looks like other than hanging with pups and piggy which I’ve learned is...actually...more than enough!” she said.
She concluded her chain of social media updates and said even though she is still figuring things out, she’s accepted the way things are. “Anyway, not sure why this anniversary has made me ramble on so much but...my heart feels good,” she tweeted. “Even though everything is up in the air / I still have a million questions...I've accepted it and feel somewhat whole and that feels like something worth sharing. I guess. love u.”
She also spoke about them more in depth as the August cover star of Vogue. Ariana called “thank u, next” as a moment of self-realization. “It was this scary moment of ‘Wow, you have to face all this stuff now. No more distractions. You have to heal all this s**t,’” she revealed to Vogue.
