Ariana Grande has written an emotional letter to her fans after she was seen crying on stage during her world tour.
The singer, 26, opened up in a lengthy post on social media, which she has since deleted, explaining how grateful she was to have her voice and the opportunity to perform for thousands of people.
In the post, Ariana said: ‘If you too are hurting, you can push through and are not alone.’
She also thanked her fans for accepting her ‘human-ness’, saying she sometimes cried a lot because she was touring at a time in her life when she was ‘still processing a lot’.
Ariana has encountered a number of hardships in recent years, particularly the death of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller and the Manchester Arena terror attack which took place at the end of her concert in 2017.
In the since deleted post, the singer thanked her fans and said she was grateful for working with the best musicians and dancers in the world.
She said: ‘I feel everything very intensely and have committed to doing this tour during a time in my life when I’m still processing a lot … so sometimes I cry a lot!’
Ariana said she wrote the message ‘because I’m grateful and because I want you to know that if you too are hurting, you can push through and are not alone’.
