Ariana Grande Takes A ‘Breather’ From Social Media After Fiancé Pete Davidson Quits Instagram
'Sometimes can’t help but bump into some negative sh*t that really can bum u out.'
Ariana Grande is over social media.
Hours after her fiancé Pete Davidson cleared his Instagram account, the “No Tears Left To Cry” singer announced on Monday, July 23, that she too is taking a break from Twitter and Instagram
Ariana made the shocking announcement after a fan tweeted that she realized the singer doesn’t “promote [her projects] as much as she used to.”
“[Because] it destroyed my mental health and was horrible for me,” Ariana responded. “I don’t remember anything [about] those years of my life and am doing so much better now. Career wise and health wise. Stop coming for me and my team when I’ve never been better literally in any department. LITERALLY.”
She later added: “Thank u guys for totally getting it and being so wonderfully celebratory of how incredibly things are going because that is real. 🙏🏼.”
A fan then tweeted that they noticed Ariana “made a return” to Snapchat after her departure from IG and Twitter, which prompted Ari to confirm that she’s giving the photo and video sharing platform a try.
“Yeh! I’m [probably] gonna post on [there] for a little while and take a breather from Twitter and [Instagram] for a little,” she explained. “Just sometimes can’t help but bump into some negative sh*t that really can bum u out and it’s not worth it honestly,” replied the singer, who also turned off comments on her Instagram account. “Promised I’d always tell you. I love u [so much]! Be well and happy.”
Earlier in the day, Ariana’s fiancé announced his departure from social media after he deleted all of his posts from Instagram. While fans thought the deleting spree was due to possible relationship drama, Pete set the record straight on his Instagram Story.
“No, there’s nothing wrong. No nothing happened,” he explained. “No, there’s nothing cryptic about anything. I just don’t wanna be on Instagram anymore, or on any social media platform. The Internet is an evil place and it doesn’t make me feel good,” he continued. “Why should I spend any time on negative energy when my real life is f**king lit? The fact that I even have to say this proves my point. I love you all and I’m sure I’ll be back at some point. Your neighborhood goon, Pete.”
