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.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:
