"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,'" a quote, which was posted over a picture of Carrey, read. "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."
Beneath the quote, Grande -- who is a self-confessed Carrey superfan -- wrote -- "The whole LOML [love of my life] forever," along with a heart emoji.
On Sunday -- hours before Grande took the stage to close out the second weekend of Coachella with special guest Justin Bieber -- Carrey took to Twitter to thank Grande and share some insight into his quoted remarks.
".@ArianaGrande 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," Carrey wrote, alongside a Foster's full quote on his philosophy on depression.
.@ArianaGrande 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! pic.twitter.com/BiMa6KHYb6
"Making [music] is healing. Performing it is like reliving it all over again and it is hell," Grande wrote in a since-deleted tweet. Responding to a fan, Grande also confessed, "I just feel empty and i wanna have more to say / better energy to give to u and rn i don’t have anything. love u."
