JUSTIN BIEBER PERFORMS WITH ARIANA GRANDE AT COACHELLA – (04/23/2019)
Justin Bieber made a surprise appearance at Coachella, joining Ariana Grande onstage for her second performance at the event.
Grande, despite telling fans that she had no special guests planned for her second Coachella show on Sunday, introduced Bieber onstage to perform his song “Sorry.”
“This is my first time performing here in two years, and I had to get my groove back, my swag back, you know what I’m saying,” Bieber told the crowd before teasing that his next album is coming soon.
“Thank you @ArianaGrande. Thank you @coachella. That felt right. Love you,” Bieber said on Twitter Monday.
Grande also performed “God Is a Woman,” “Side to Side,” “Bang Bang,” “No Tears Left to Cry” and “Thank U, Next” among other songs. She previously shared the stage with ‘NSYNC – minus Justin Timberlake – Nicki Minaj, Diddy and Mase at her first Coachella concert last weekend.
However, there was one sour note Sunday night. Video has emerged of Ari being struck by a lemon during the “Right There”/”Break Your Heart Right Back” segment of her set. The fruit bounced harmlessly off her chest. Ari brushed the incident, sayin “That’s ’cause one of ya’ll threw a lemon at me, sh*it,” she told the audience.
Fans took their fury to Twitter and Billie Eilish’s brother and collaborator Finneas called out the culprit. “If you throw a lemon at Ariana Grande, you’re a piece of sh*t,” he tweeted.
Grande and Bieber recently appeared together in Lil Dicky’s new pro-environment single “Earth.” The track, which is helping to raise funds for Leonardo DiCaprio’s pro-environment foundation, also features Snoop Dogg, Adam Levine, Shawn Mendes, Sia, Miley Cyrus, Lil Jon, Kate Perry, Ed Sheeran and many others.
In February, Bieber revealed that he had taken a hiatus from his music career, not releasing a new album since 2015’s Purpose.
JIM CARREY RESPONDS TO ARIANA GRANDE AFTER SHE POSTS HIS QUOTE ABOUT DEPRESSION – (04/23/2019)
Jim Carrey took a moment to respond to Ariana Grande after she posted about him over the weekend.
It all started when Ariana posted a quote from Carrey on her Instagram Story that expresses his views on depression.
“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’,” the quote read.
“You should think of the word ‘depressed’ as ‘deep rest’,” it continues. “Your body needs to be depressed. It needs deep rest from the character that you’ve been trying to play.”
Ariana called Carrey, “The whole LOML [love of my life] forever,” and said her first AIM screenname in 4th grade was “jimcarreyfan42.”
In response to her posts, Carrey tweeted at Ariana Sunday: “I read your lovely mention of me and things I’ve said about depression. A brilliant teacher and friend, Jeff Foster was OG on the ‘Deep Rest’ concept.”
He added, “I admire your openness. I wish you freedom and peace. I feel blessed to have such a gifted admirer. Happy Easter!”
Ariana retweeted his message, and wrote, “i can’t process this or breathe hold on.”
“thank u so much for your kindness,” she continued, once she collected her thoughts. “i don’t think u understand how much i adore u or what u mean to me. thank u for taking the time to share this w me. you are such an inspiration.”
She added, “i can’t wait to tattoo this tweet to my forehead. sending you lots of love & all things happy…jimcarreyfan42 is a very grateful girl rn.”
