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.

Shaking hands... what's up with that?

Could this social custom be going out of style given that we're all in the middle of a global pandemic and have become hyperaware of all the germs around us?

And not just that, but just how nasty people are? Why would you want to shake hands with them?

People shared their opinions after Redditor alebenchhe asked the online community,

"What social customs do we need to retire?"

I have a paralyzing fear of death. If I could I would live forever. Have you ever seen the movie "Death Becomes Her?" I would give every penny for that potion. And I wouldn't be all crazy like them.

Live well forever and be happy? It's possible. Even though life is nuts and scary, you're still here. What if there is nothing after the final breath? I don't want to just not exist, while everybody else just gets to keep on dancing.

In my hopes I see a Heaven with ice cream and vodka. So I'm going to hold onto that until eternal life is an option. Let's hear from the gallery...

Redditor u/St3fan34 wanted to discuss life after life, by asking:

What do you think really happens after death?

The pressure to fit in when you're a young person is no joke. It seems like, daily, your emotional and physical safety hinges on you passing as "cool"--whatever that means. "Cool" can mean different things for different people. But when it comes to the things the "popular" kids think is cool--it might actually be destructive or dangerous.

But thankfully, just like trends, what is "cool" and what is not is also liable to change with time. And as generations move on and on, the landscape of what is "cool" changes. Some of the awful things that were cool when we were younger are no longer cool.
