After being forced to postpone two shows this week, Ariana Grande gave fans an update on her health.
In an Instagram post, the singer wrote that she’s developed an “unfortunate” food allergy to one of her favorite foods — tomatoes — and after she ate them, her throat “pretty much closed.”
She added that she will “make it up to” her fans in Tampa and Orlando by returning in November; Live Nation Florida clarified on Twitter that her Tampa show will be Nov. 24 and the Orlando concert will be Nov. 25.
“Still feels like i’m swallowing a cactus but slowly making progress! thank u all for your love and understanding,” she wrote. “p.s. there is NOTHING MORE UNFAIR THAN AN ITALIAN WOMAN DEVELOPING AN ALLERGY TO TOMATOES IN HER MID TWENTIES…….”
Grande, 25, wrote on her Instagram story on Tuesday that she woke up “incredibly sick” and was advised by her physician to postpone her performances. The news, the Florida native added, left her “so beyond devastated.”
