Opening Night  - Ariana Grande Sweetener World Tour

Ariana Grande revealed she’s been feeling under the weather on her “Sweetener World Tour.”

The pop star took to her Instagram Stories on Saturday night (November 16) to let fans know she’s been feeling sick for weeks and fears she may have to cancel an upcoming concert. The illness, whatever it may be, has caused the 26-year-old a lot of pain and made it difficult for her to breathe during Friday's (November 15) concert in North Carolina.

“Hi my loves so I’m still very sick. I’ve been sick since the last London show. I don’t know how it’s possible but my throat and head are still in so much pain. I sound okay I’m just in a lot of pain and it’s difficult to breathe during the show,” the “7 Rings” singer wrote in a lengthy message.

“I am seeing my doctor and trying my v best to get better for tomorrow’s show. the last thing i would ever want to do is cancel a show at this point with so few left. i’m truly cherishing every moment of this… i just really don’t know what’s happening with my body right now and need to figure it out,” she added. “Please take this as a gentle heads up… i don’t want anyone to feel blindsided tomorrow if god forbid i can’t make the show happen.”

“I’m on all the meds. getting IV drips, doing everything i possibly can to pull through. mom and friends are taking good care of me. just a scary feeling. love you with all my heart and will keep you posted," she concluded.

The musician recently said she had been coughing and enduring a sinus infection, and that the latter was still affecting her health.

Taking to her Stories following her doctor's visit, the “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” star could be seen being comforted by friends and family before delivering this update: “Still can’t swallow or lift my head. love u. medicated af and hoping to wake up better. seeing doc again in am and will let you know about show. i’m so sorry again. it’s catching up to me i guess. love u the most.”

Per her website, Grande is scheduled to perform her November 17 show in Kentucky.

Feel better, Ari!
