Ariana Grande opens up about her childhood obsession with Jim Carrey

Ariana Grande has again taken to social media to highlight and discuss depression with a quote from her childhood crush Jim Carrey.

The highly acclaimed pop singer has recently opened up about her depression and her recent diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), which is understood to have been caused by the Manchester bombings that took place on her Dangerous Woman concert tour in 2017.

Ari released a series of posts on Instagram, quoting her number one crush Jim Carrey.

It read: “Depression is your body saying, ‘I don’t want to be this character anymore. I don’t want to hold up this avatar that you’ve created in the world. It’s too much for me,”

She continued: “You should think of the word ‘depressed’ as ‘deep rest.’  Your body needs to be depressed. It needs deep rest from the character that you’ve been trying to play.”

Ari added a small caption under the quote saying: “The Whole LOML 🖤 forever,” admitting her love for him.

She later wrote: “my first AIM username was jimcarreyfan42 when I was in like 4th grade.”

Recently Ariana has admitted that she’s been struggling to perform her new music while touring.

Ariana is playing 76 shows on her current world tour, and singing songs from her two recent albums ‘Sweetener’ and ‘Thank U, Next’ – The tour will last until October 2019.

On Thursday, a fan tweeted the pop star with: “Music is your therapy and I love seeing it heal you.”

While Ariana has described writing and performing her music as ‘therapy’ but now she has revealed that’s not always the case.

Ariana responded: “Making it is healing. Performing it is like reliving it all over again and it is hell.”
