    please interview her again in the future. i’m begging. this has by far been her best interview in the past several years. such thoughtful questions and attentive responses
  • @lav4629y3
    She doesn’t seem at all jaded, the way she cries easily and talks about her emotions in relation to everything. That’s probably rare for people at her level in the industry

  • @Laraaa90
    Seeing Ariana so comfortable, vulnerable and open is an amazing testament to the safe space these guys created as hosts ❤ Definitely one of Ari’s best interviews ever, she really let us see that human Ari is fully in control now, and I hope she’s here to stay because it’s been wonderful seeing this side of her 🩷
  • @staciaallen3330
    The fact that Ariana said: I’ve been living in the studio” is absolutely making me so very happy & proud of her because Galinda & Wicked really brought Ariana back to making music, singing, rehearsing, dancing, doing more promos, going to events & everything !

  • @lisakornick
    When she was asked at the end what she would tell her 12yr old self you can literally see her life flashing before her eyes before she answers
  • @claradrani9283
    I will never understand the people who say, they miss the old Ariana. The old Ariana was depressed and hurt on the other hand the new Ariana is happy, grateful, surroundet by loving people and first and foremost she is her true and authentic self. I love Ariana no matter what, she‘s so different but her soul is still the same. It makes me so emotional to see her grow and develop and to see her being finally happy. She deserves nothing but the very best. She has so much love in her heart and you can really see that, Even tho she‘s been trough so much. I will always love and cherish her and i am so proud of her development <3
