Kanye wrote, “All of this foolishness weighed on my mental health so @ArianaGrande you know I got love for you but until you’re ready to really make sure everyone’s ok don’t use me or this moment to promote a song.”
Grande called out two “grown men”—a.k.a. Ye and Drake—who were “arguing online,” and asked them to “behave for just like a few hours” so that people could listen to her new single, “Imagine,” and Miley Cyrus’ new song, a cover of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s “Happy Xmas (War Is Over).” However, it’s clear that Ye took the tweet as a slight.
Grande directly responded to Ye in a tweet that further clarifies why she pointed to his and Drake’s beef in the first place. “[W]ith all due respect,” she wrote, “i don’t need to use anyone to promote anything. period. i was making a comment ab what men were doing at the time vs. women. it was a joke which i understand now was probably insensitive. i apologize if i was in any way triggering and hope u feel well today.”
