Ariana Grande knows that when life gets rough, you just have to keep breathin’.
The God Is a Woman singer recently opened up about living with anxiety to the BBC, in a special hour-long interview that will air this week.
The uncanny part is, this tell-all happened the same day Mac Miller died — just a few hours prior to hearing the news.
In the upcoming special, the 25-year-old almost prophetically tells BBC host Davina McCall that the ups and downs of life can trigger her anxiety:
“I almost feel guilty that I have it [anxiety] because it’s just in your head and it’s just so crazy how powerful it is. You have ups and downs and sometimes you’ll go weeks at a time where you will be crushing it and there will be no anxiety… and then something will happen that can trigger it and then you have a couple of down days.”
It looks like Ari’s way of coping includes diving deeper into her work — but the Sweetener singer also recognizes how crucial it is to for those struggling with anxiety to speak up and get help:
“It takes hard work and practice and therapy and self-care — and so much love. It’s just in your head and it’s just so crazy how powerful it is.”
“The most important thing is to remember that…everybody has this. Talk to your loved ones, reach out to people, especially your friends online.”
While she may be right, we’ll take Ari’s last piece of advice with a grain of salt as the internet can be such a cruel place sometimes. The songstress knows this too, since she’s taken multiple hiatuses herself while grieving this year.
