Ariana Grande set social media ablaze after she released her latest album "Eternal Sunshine," on Friday. It was the first album she has released in over three years.

SUGGESTED: Ariana Grande’s ‘Eternal Sunshine’ album chronicles heartbreak, new beginnings

Grande is credited as a songwriter on every single track and the album chronicles heartbreak and new beginnings following her divorce from Los Angeles luxury real estate agent Dalton Gomez and alleged new romance with Broadway star Ethan Slater. 

With songs such as "Bye" and "We Can’t Be Friends (Wait For Your Love)," it’s clear things did not end amicably between the two. 

Grande hinted infidelity played a role in the couple’s downfall with lyrics such as "Now she’s in my bed, layin’ on your chest," in the song "Eternal Sunshine." 

Reddit users suggested some fans took their reactions to the extreme and were leaving negative online reviews about her ex-husband's business. 


While the pop singer didn’t specify the actions of some of her fans and who was targed, apparently it was enough to tell them to take a step back and to keep "breathin.'" She shared a message on her Instagram stories with the following message:


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 entirely

Misinterpreting the intention

Behind the music)…

I ask that you please do not.

It is not how to support me.

It is the opposite.

Although the 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."

The 30-year-old singer was certainly busy on the weekend. She performed on "Saturday Night Live" in New York City on Saturday and hit the Oscars red carpet in Los Angeles Sunday afternoon. 

Grande stars in the movie adaption of "Wicked," with Part I set to be released on Thanksgiving.
