When she was interviewed by British Vogue, she spoke openly about her struggles and experiences with mental health issues such as anxiety: “It’s hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss. But, yeah, it’s a real thing. I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well… I feel like I shouldn’t even be talking about my own experience – like I shouldn’t even say anything. I don’t think I’ll ever know how to talk about it and not cry.”
Ariana Grande just shared a poignant glimpse into her mental health struggles on her Instagram story, giving fans an update on her wellbeing.
The pop singer has been struggling with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) following the Manchester Arena terrorist attack.
She took to her stories to share a screenshot of an iMessage group chat where Ari had shared photos of some brain scans captioned “hilarious and terrifying… not a joke”.
The image shows a photo comparison of a “healthy brain” alongside a brain of someone affected by PTSD. Below to this are four images of Ariana’s own brain scans, which are shockingly similar to the brain with PTSD image shared above.
