ARIANA GRANDE’S SWEETENER TOUR SETS RECORD FOR VOTER REGISTRATION: Ariana Grande’s Sweeetner tour has been doing well at the box office – and has set a record for voter registration. Ariana teamed with the non-profit organization HeadCount to offer fans attending the tour an easy way to register to vote. HeadCount has now confirmed that, in terms of number of voters registered, it’s the organization’s most successful single artist tour since 2008. In addition, HeadCount confirms that the Sweetener tour has managed to register twice as many voters as any other tour in the past three years. HeadCount is affiliated with over 100 touring artists and more than 50 festivals. The Sweetener tour is poised to register even more voters, since it’s not scheduled to wrap until December 21st. HeadCount has registered about 600,000 voters since 2004. In addition to Ariana’s tour, they’re also working this summer on tours with Billie Eilish, Khalid and Carly Rae Jepsen. Additionally, volunteers will be at Lollapalooza and Outside Lands later this summer.


Ariana Grande took to Twitter on Sunday to share an emotional statement about how “wild” touring and life could be.

“I’m grateful for the sea of love I have around me everyday and for the people who come to these shows and give all of us every ounce of energy that they have,” Ariana writes. “I’m grateful to work with the best musicians and dancers in the world. I’m grateful for my voice and my team. I’m grateful for this music.”

Ariana’s message comes after she started crying on stage during her performance of “R.E.M.” during her concert on Saturday night in St. Louis.

“I feel everything very intensely and have committed to doing this tour during a time in my life when I’m still processing a lot,” Ariana continued. “So sometimes I cry a lot! I thank you for accepting my hummanness [sic].”

Ariana concluded: “I’m sharing this because I’m grateful and because I want you to know that if you too are hurting, you can push through and are not alone. It is hard to balance taking care of the people around you, doing your job, and healing/taking care of yourself at the same time…but I want you to know, you aren’t alone and I think you’re doing great. Love you.”

The tweet has since been deleted.
