Ariana Grande canceled Saturday Night Live performance due to ’emotional reasons’… in wake of ex Mac Miller’s death
Ariana Grande chose not to perform on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live season premiere due to ’emotional reasons’.
The singer’s ex-boyfriend Mac Miller died of a drug overdose earlier this month and it seems she’s not quite ready to return to the spotlight.
Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels revealed on Thursday that Ariana had canceled her appearance.
‘We had Ariana drop out for emotional reasons two days ago,’ Michaels, 73, said on the Origins With James Andrew Miller podcast.
‘That’s our premiere, and then Kanye [West] stepped up, and he’ll be there. So, the reach of the show and the number of people who will step forward is now somehow now, I think, probably at its peak.’
On Thursday Ariana posted a series of anguished tweets seemingly still suffering in the wake of her ex-boyfriend’s death.
The distraught 25-year-old pop star began: ‘can i pls have one okay day. just one. pls,’ then less than a minute latter added: ‘i’m so tired pls’.
After a few minutes, she went on: ‘i’m so f***ing tired pls,’ and added ‘jus wake me up when i’m supposed to sing or whatever. peace.’
She then quoted a tweet of hers from Saturday that read: ‘everything will be okay,’ and replied to it: ‘j f***ing k’.
Ariana wrote: ‘nothing will ever b ok,’ doubling down: ‘dats da truth. luv u, ty for loving me sm i do not deserve it’.
Feeling bad about her gloomy tweets she then wrote: ‘ur angels in my life. it’s just been a tough month,’
‘I’m trying to get my work done and get back to normal and it’s hard and i’m human and tired. sorry i let u in or worried u. i shouldn’t have tweeted. i kno better.’
