UPDATE // OCTOBER 24:

Following ex-boyfriend Mac Miller’s death, Ariana told fans she wasn’t in a state of mind to embark on any kind of tour. At the time, she said if there was a tour in the works, it wouldn’t be as extensive or lengthy as some of her past treks, but it appears Ariana wants to stay busy.

The pop star confirmed a tour is in fact in the works, and will release dates shortly. 

“i’m ready,” she said. “my heart needs it actually… finalizing a few more things but i’m tryna get em dates to u asap.”

 

 

UPDATE // OCTOBER 11:

Expect a new album from Ariana Grande in 2018!

The pop star was minding her own business walking around NYC this week when paparazzi asked, well… shouted at her if she plans on releasing a new album this year.

“Yes!” she shouted. 

As long as it’s quality I’m in. 

Also, watch the music video for “Breathin” here.

It appears Ariana Grande will release another new album and then head out on tour.

UPDATE // OCTOBER 3:

Ariana is currently recording new music, and we might get to hear it sooner than later.

The pop star is holding off on a Sweetener Tour for now while she recuperates from recent trauma, but she does have plans to perform.

It appears Ari’s plan is to put forth another new studio album (or perhaps an EP/mixtape), then have two projects worth of material to perform on an eventual tour.

The singer responded to a fan’s post on Instagram basically confirming she’ll release her fifth studio album first, then tour.

Love this idea! It gives Ari the chance to heal through music, and fans get more new material. Everyone wins.

UPDATE // OCTOBER 2:

Ari is channeling her heartache through music.

She’s put the Sweetener tour on hold (either indefinitely or perhaps a mini tour – more on that below) to focus on her well-being, and that journey includes making new tunes. 

The “God Is A Woman” crooner posted a snap on her Insta-story inside the studio.



She’s reportedly working with producer Tommy Brown, who crafted several tracks off Sweetener) and singer-songwriter Victoria Monet.

 

Ariana Grande won’t embark on a lengthy tour like she did for the Dangerous Woman Tour, but she’s ready to get back out there.

UPDATE // SEPTEMBER 28:

The pop star is unsure what to do or how to move forward with promoting Sweetener.

Last week, it seemed like Ari would hold off on touring altogether, but it appears she’s had a change of heart.

The “Pete Davidson” Interlude singer says while she certainly won’t have a tour as massive as her last run, she’d like to return to performing in some capacity.

Ari is understandably grieving the loss of her ex, Mac Miller, the person she leaned on the most following the attack at her Manchester concert.

Ariana Grande Is Having A Tough Time Right Now: “Nothing Will Ever Be OK”


“Maybe i’ll do a mini one,” she told fans on Twitter. “i cant do what i did last time right now. that i do know.”

Ari added: “whatever it is i hope it’s okay with you. i just love and miss you. everybody telling me i need to take time but i’m so antsy.”

To be honest, I think a mini tour is a great compromise. It’s an opportunity to focus her mind on something, but not meet the demands of a “proper” tour.

 

Ariana Grande might scrap the Sweetener Tour altogether. 

UPDATE // SEPTEMBER 24: 

The pop star told fans it will be a long time before they can expect to see her at a show.

An Arianator posted a meme that read:

“Why buy the new iPhones when you can save that money for Meet & Greet for Ariana’s next tour?”

In a now-deleted comment, Ari responded:

“u gonna be saving for a loooooooooooooong time ……”

Awe. Ari has had an extremely difficult couple of years, so it makes sense she wants to take time out to focus on her mental health.

Think about it… one of the people she leaned on the most following the attack at her Manchester show is gone now. 

Smart move, Ari.

 

 

EARLIER // SEPTEMBER 18:

Ariana Grande Is Recording New Music As She Mourns The Loss Of Mac Miller

Ariana Grande’s Sweetener era has come to a standstill following the death of ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller.

The pop star has a lot to celebrate right now: a No. 1 album, her relationship with fiancé Pete Davidson and millions of fans worldwide who adore her, but losing Mac has stopped Ari in her tracks.

The “God Is A Woman” singer was scheduled to appear at the Emmys on Monday, but she and Davidson were both noticeably absent.

Ari’s team issued a statement explaining she’s still grieving and needed to spend time with family and friends. They also mentioned she’s creating new music.

“Contrary to reports, Ariana will not be attending the Emmys tonight. Pete has also opted to not attend to be with her in New York. Given the events of the past couple of years, Ariana is going to take some much needed time to heal and mend,” the statement read.

“She will be staying close to home and using this period to spend time with her loved ones and work on new music without deadline. She thanks her fans for understanding.”

Mac was found dead from an apparent drug overdose earlier this month.

Ariana wrote a heartfelt message on Instagram days later.

“i adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will,” she wrote. “i can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. i really can’t wrap my head around it. we talked about this. so many times. i’m so mad, i’m so sad i don’t know what to do.”

While the circumstances are obviously terrible, it’s a bit comforting to know Ari is channeling her anguish into something.
