Ariana Grande thanked her fans and crew for "accepting her humanness" and admitted she is still "processing a lot" on tour after crying on stage.
The 'No Tears Left to Cry' hitmaker grew emotional during her performance of 'R.E.M', which she penned about ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson - who she ended her brief engagement to after a whirlwind romance late last year - at her ’Sweetener World Tour' concert at the Enterprise Center in St Louis, Missouri, over the weekend.
The past two years have been extremely tough for the 26-year-old pop star, whose former boyfriend Mac Miller tragically passed away last September, aged just 26, and after the terrorist attack at her Manchester concert in May 2017, which killed 22 people, and she admitted that she is bound to "cry a lot" and said she has "gratitude" to thanks for not giving up.
In a lengthy statement to fans posted after the show, Ariana wrote: "Tour is wild. Life is wild. I’m grateful for the sea of love I have around me everyday and for the people who come to these shows and give all of us every ounce of energy they’ve got.
"I’m grateful to work with the best musicians and dancers in the world. I’m grateful for my voice and my team. I’m grateful for this music.
