Ariana Grande has always been a big fan of actor and comedian Jim Carrey, and she sang his praises on Instagram Stories over the weekend.

On Saturday, the "7 Rings" singer attributed a quote about depression to the venerated actor on one of her posts.

It read:

"Depression is your body saying, 'I don't want to be this character anymore. I don't want to hold up this avatar that you've created in the world. It's too much for me. You should think of the word 'depressed' as 'deep rest.' Your body needs to be depressed. It needs deep rest from the character that you've been trying to play."

She wrote under the quote, "The whole LOML [love of my life] forever."


Carrey received the message and responded to the singer with much admiration.
"I read your lovely mention of me and things I've said about depression. A brilliant teacher and friend, Jeff Foster was OG on the 'Deep Rest' concept. I admire your openness. I wish you freedom and peace. I feel blessed to have such a gifted admirer. Happy Easter!"

Grande needed a moment after Carrey's heartfelt response.



According to E! News, Grande posted and deleted many posts about her "headspace" on Thursday, several weeks into her Whirlwind tour.

"I don't mind the app. I'm just not in a headspace to handle it like I used to u know, like in general. That's all," wrote Grande in a tweet that was later captured via screenshots. "I'll be back. It's ok! Love y'all. Thinking of you."

The 25-year-old is always open with her fans. One devoted fan wrote, "Music is your therapy and I love seeing it heal you," but Grande responded that that's not always the case.

She wrote back in a deleted tweet:

"Making it is healing. Performing it is like reliving it all over again and it is hell."

Fans reminded Grande of her positive effects on people who admire the person behind the music.



After gathering her thoughts, Grande wrote Carrey back.

"Thank u so much for your kindness. i don't think u understand how much i adore u or what u mean to me. thank u for taking the time to share this w me. you are such an inspiration. i can't wait to tattoo this tweet to my forehead. sending you lots of love & all things happy."


One Arianator remembered Grande's love for Carrey during the early days of online chatting on AIM.

"My first AIM username was jimcarreyfan42 when I was in like 4th grade," she admitted.


Their beautiful exchange delivered all the needed feels.


The mutual support between artists is an example of how we can all be there for each other when we're not feeling our best.

Deep rest is something we may all experience at any given time, but it's nice to know that we all eventually rise.

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

"What is the worst way you've been woken up?"

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
