Spread Love, Not Hate: Ariana Grande’s Plea to Fans as New Album Hits Airwaves

Ariana Grande is begging fans to stop sending “hateful messages” to the “people in [her] life” who may have inspired the tracks on her new album, “Eternal Sunshine.”

The songstress, 30, shared a lengthy message via her Instagram Story over the weekend after releasing her seventh studio album earlier this week.

“Hi, I just wanted to say anyone that is sending hateful messages to the people in my life based on your interpretation of this album is not supporting me and is absolutely doing the polar opposite of what I would ever encourage (and is also entirely misinterpreting the intention behind the music),” she wrote Saturday.

The “Yes, And?” singer, who has been dating ”Wicked” co-star Ethan Slater since her split from ex-husband Dalton Gomez, continued, “I ask that you please do not.”

“It is not how to support me. It is the opposite. Although this album captures a lot of painful moments, it also is woven together with a through line of deep, sincere love. If you cannot hear that, please listen more closely. Thank you,” she concluded the request.

Though the lyrics on her latest songs don’t explicitly address her new relationship or recent divorce, she sings about feeling like a “hostage” and having “tears” on the heartfelt song “Bye.”

She also croons about a new romance on “The Boy Is Mine,” singing, “Please know this ain’t what I planned for / Probably wouldn’t bet a dime or my life on [it].”

Later Saturday, the “Victorious” alum took the stage at “Saturday Night Live,” where she performed “We Can’t Be Friends (Wait for Your Love)” and “Imperfect for You” live for the first time since the album drop.

Grande stunned in a fitted black dress with a brown fur coat, while singing on a set designed to look like the living room of a home.

Grande’s new music comes less than one year after Page Six confirmed that she and her husband of two years, luxury real estate agent Gomez, were ending their marriage.

In July 2023, an insider told us that the pair had actually been separated for months before they decided to legally call it quits.

Their divorce was finalized in October 2023, after Grande had already met Slater on the set of the “Wicked” movie in London.

The Broadway star, who was most recently seen in “Spamalot,” has also been in the midst of divorce proceedings.

The “SpongeBob Musical: Live on Stage!” star filed for divorce from estranged wife Lilly Jay, with whom he shares a young son, which left her “completely blindsided.”

“My family is just collateral damage,” Jay told Page Six after her husband began publicly dating Grande.

“[She’s] not a girl’s girl,” Jay further slammed the “Into You” hitmaker.
