Ariana Grande has released a brand new music video – this time, for ‘In My Head,’ a track off of her super-successful album, Thank U, Next!  In addition, Ariana is also on the August cover of Vogue Magazine.

 

 

In an Instagram post that was published by Vogue, the caption reads, “August cover star @arianagrande is one of the world’s biggest pop stars, and through her soul-bearing music, often lets us all in on her emotions, her thoughts, and her relationships. Her new cover video featuring “In My Head,” one of the most revealing, intimate songs from her February release Thank U, Next, takes this confessional tendency literally, as Grande dances, shoulder-pops, poses, and struts around inside the white room of her own mind.”

August cover star @arianagrande is one of the world’s biggest pop stars, and through her soul-bearing music, often lets us all in on her emotions, her thoughts, and her relationships. Her new cover video featuring “In My Head,” one of the most revealing, intimate songs from her February release Thank U, Next, takes this confessional tendency literally, as Grande dances, shoulder-pops, poses, and struts around inside the white room of her own mind.

During her interview with Vogue, Ariana opened up about a lot – losing Mac Miller, dating Pete Davidson, her health struggles and much more.  Nine minutes into Vogue’s interview, Ariana began to cry as she begins to talk about Coachella which, reminds her of her ex, Mac Miller, “I never thought I’d even go to Coachella.  I was always a person who never went to festivals and never went out and had fun like that. But the first time I went was to see Malcolm perform, and it was such an incredible experience. I went the second year as well, and I associate…heavily…it was just kind of a mindf**k, processing how much has happened in such a brief period.”

 

And about her relationship with Mac,  Ariana explains, “By no means was what we had perfect, but, like, f**k, he was the best person ever, and he didn’t deserve the demons he had.  I was the glue for such a long time, and I found myself becoming … less and less sticky.  The pieces just started to float away.”

For a woman who recently turned 26 and is enjoying the most successful chapter of her career, it has also been a spectacularly, and publicly, brutal couple of years for @arianagrande. “I’m a person who’s been through a lot and doesn’t know what to say about any of it to myself, let alone the world. I see myself onstage as this perfectly polished, great-at-my-job entertainer, and then in situations like this I’m just this little basket-case puddle of figuring it out.” She laughs through her sniffles. “I have to be the luckiest girl in the world, and the unluckiest, for sure. I’m walking this fine line between healing myself and not letting the things that I’ve gone through be picked at before I’m ready, and also celebrating the beautiful things that have happened in my life and not feeling scared that they’ll be taken away from me because trauma tells me that they will be, you know what I mean?” Read the full August cover story in the link in our bio.

Over the years and with every unfortunate event, Ariana suffered from many healthy struggles – PSTD being one of them, “I was researching healing and PTSD and talking to therapists, and everyone was like, ‘You need a routine, a schedule.’   Of course because I’m an extremist, I’m like, OK, I’ll go on tour! But it’s hard to sing songs that are about wounds that are so fresh. It’s fun, it’s pop music, and I’m not trying to make it sound like anything that it’s not, but these songs to me really do represent some heavy s**t,” Ariana explains.

 

And lastly, “I’m a person who’s been through a lot and doesn’t know what to say about any of it to myself, let alone the world. I see myself onstage as this perfectly polished, great-at-my-job entertainer, and then in situations like this I’m just this little basket-case puddle of figuring it out.  I have to be the luckiest girl in the world, and the unluckiest, for sure. I’m walking this fine line between healing myself and not letting the things that I’ve gone through be picked at before I’m ready, and also celebrating the beautiful things that have happened in my life and not feeling scared that they’ll be taken away from me because trauma tells me that they will be, you know what I mean?”
