“You were singing with backtracking like most cameos do,” Ariana said. “Your fans, friends and the world are thrilled to have you back. Everyone was so happy to see you smile like that. No one will ever understand how it feels to be you, but it’s not their job to. Take care. Make music. You are loved.”
