Ariana Grande’s Coachella performance hit a sour note Saturday night.
During her weekend 2 headlining performance at the 2019 Coachella Music Festival, an unruly audience member threw a lemon at her. Yep you read that right.
The yellow fruit hit the “thank u, next” singer’s chest and bounced off while she and her backup dancers strutted the stage. Grande was in the middle of performing her song “Right There”/”Break Your Heart Right Back” when the lemon toss went down. Needless to say it stopped her dead in her tracks.
“That’s ’cause one of ya’ll threw a lemon at me, s—,” she said to the crowd after the bizarre incident. Thankfully Ariana was ok and carried on with her performance.

Last week there was a rumor circulating that Beyoncé was only paid $4 million in comparison to Ms. Grande who was being paid $8 million to headline Coachella. That rumor turned out to be just a rumor and very inaccurate because they both got paid $8 million for their headlining performances.
Now many people are speculating that this displeased fan was a beyhive member that didn’t get the memo about their equal pay. Beyoncé released her latest album in 2016, “Lemonade” hence the lemon, and the fan.
Sadly, this sour gesture comes after the pop star opened up about what performing is like for her.
Her fans “The Arianators” were concerned after realizing how inactive she was on Twitter. She revealed in her tweets that performing isn’t good for her health.
“I have so much on my mind and it’s heavy and no energy to process or work thru any of it but I’m trying hard,” she continued. “and seeing u all is so nice. but it’s hard emotionally. I wish it were a year ago. i’d give anything.”
Grande also admitted in a separate tweet that “making [music] is healing, [but] performing it is like reliving it all over again and it is hell.”
In the past, Grande has also been transparent about her struggles handling PTSD after her concert in Manchester where a suicide bomber attacked during the show killing 22 people.
Currently, the pop star is on the road for her “Sweetener World Tour” that will continue since Coachella is over.
