Ariana Grande Slams ‘Hateful’ Responses to ‘Eternal Sunshine’ Album


Ariana Grande has a serious message for her fans after the release of Eternal Sunshine.

“i just wanted to say anyone that is sending hateful messages to the people in my life based on your interpretation of the 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)…” Grande wrote via Instagram Story on Saturday, March 9.

“i ask that you please do not,” she continued. “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.”

Eternal Sunshine was named in part after the 2004 film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, starring Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey, whose characters undergo a procedure to permanently erase each other from their memory. This imagery is reflected in her music video for “we can’t be friends (wait for your love),” which stars Evan Peters.

Grande stated during a February appearance on the “Zach Sang Show” that she was “nervous” about the album’s reception after the release of her single, “Yes, And?”

“I feel like we don’t need to go into any specifics, but, of course, there’s like an insatiable frustration, inexplicable, hellish feeling with watching people misunderstand the people you love and you and anything,” Grande said.

“I’m so nervous because pieces of [the album] touch on things that are real and then pieces of it are also just, like, part of the concept,” she went on. “So, what is that separation? It’s so scary to leave it up to these selective memory people to decipher. It’s scary, but I digress. Too late. The vinyls have been printed.” Grande described Eternal Sunshine as her most “emotional” album to date.
