Ariana Grande says fans misunderstood her album by sending 'hateful messages'

One day after releasing her new album Eternal Sunshine , Ariana Grande felt she needed to step in for some damage control. Apparently, many fans thought they were upset by some of the things she sang about in her new music, so they began attacking those they suspected of wronging Grande. However, their actions were very inconsistent with what Grande stood for, and she let them know that in a March 9 Instagram Story.

not having the right support

"Hi," Grande began her message, "I just want to say that anyone sending hateful messages to people in my life based on your interpretation of this album is not supporting me and is definitely doing nothing to me. Doing the exact opposite. Encouraging (and also completely misunderstanding the intention behind the music)…”

She made it clear that she didn't want their antics to continue, adding, "I'm asking you not to do this. That's not how to support me. Quite the opposite." Grande further explained that the album is about love, Instead of hate. "While this album captures a lot of painful moments, it's also woven with deep, genuine love," she said. "If you can't hear it, please listen carefully. Thank you."

The origin of hatred

Ariana Grande raised a lot of eyebrows last year when she split from her husband of two years, Dalton Gomez. A big factor is her new romance with Wicked co-star Ethan Slater, who is getting divorced. Grande, who has received a lot of criticism, recently shared on The Zach San Show that her album helped her understand more about what was going on in her life.

Sure enough, after the debut of "Eternal Sunshine ", many listeners saw her different split. The title track, in particular, seems to indicate that her marriage was very painful for her. Although Grande didn't reveal who in her life received the hateful messages, her ex-husband appears to be a possible candidate. Ultimately, however, it doesn't matter who is being singled out because Grande doesn't want anyone to be targeted on her behalf.

go ahead

As Grande says, her album is more about love, and as she moves forward, she leaves the pain behind. Likewise, she's also looking forward to performing on Saturday Night Live following the announcement. Grande sang "We Can't Be Friends (Waiting for Your Love)" and "Not Perfect for You," opposite her friend Bowen Yang, in one of the funniest sketches of the night.
