Ariana Grande may have spoken too soon when she sang about having no tears left to cry.
On Wednesday night, Grande tweeted a joke about the lyrics of her single, suggesting that its wisdom may have been premature.
"Remember when I was like hey I have no tears left to cry and the universe was like HAAAAAAAAA (expletive) u thought," she wrote on Twitter.
Grande originally released "No Tears Left To Cry" in April as a triumphant comeback single, her first new song since the tragic bombing at her Manchester concert in 2017. And while a rosy few months followed for the star in which she began dating and quickly became engaged to Pete Davidson, things came crashing down in September, when her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller died of an accidental drug overdose.
Following Miller's death, Grande and Davidson ended their engagement in October, with Grande canceling her appearance as the musical guest on the Sept. 29 season premiere of "Saturday Night Live," for "emotional reasons."
After suggesting that she would spend some time away from social media in the wake of Miller's death, Grande has been active on Twitter in recent days, tweeting plenty of jokes as well as sincere commentary.
"Thank god," she sardonically quoted one tweet that read "Ariana Grande is like one song away from making girls never talk to guys ever again."
And yet, when one fan tweeted "Who is Ariana's therapist and are they accepting new clients," Grande replied with an earnest argument for seeking out mental health resources.
"This is funny as (expletive) but in all honesty therapy has saved my life so many times," she wrote. "If you’re afraid to ask for help, don’t be. You don’t have to be in constant pain & u can process trauma. I’ve got a lot of work to do but it’s a start to even be aware that it’s possible."
On Wednesday, Grande had a busy day, dropping a video for her song "Breathin" and performing her new tune "Thank U Next" for the first time on "Ellen." During the performance, Grande tripped on stage.
She also became visibly emotional at one point during the song.
The pop star celebrated her big day on social media by tweeting black-and-white clips from the performance and writing she was "so ....... (expletive)...... grateful."
