Ariana Grande and fans had a lot to say about her new wax figure at Madame Tussauds.
Ariana Grande had to postpone several shows on her Sweetener world tour after suffering an allergic reaction to tomatoes.
And the new food allergy totally took the pop star by surprise.
The “7 Rings” singer, 25, revealed on Instagram Wednesday that she had to push back two shows in Tampa and Orlando to November because her “throat pretty much closed.”
“We discovered ….. that ….. i had an unfortunate allergic reaction to tomatoes,” Grande wrote. “Still feels like i’m swallowing a cactus but slowly making progress!”
As for any fans who think it’s unfair they have to wait nearly six months to see Grande?
“There is NOTHING MORE UNFAIR THAN AN ITALIAN WOMAN DEVELOPING AN ALLERGY TO TOMATOES IN HER MID TWENTIES,” she wrote.
Grande identifies as an Italian American, describing her nationality as “half Sicilian and half Abruzzese.”
She thanked her fans or their “love and understanding.”
“Can’t wait to get back to performing and to make it up… in November,” she added.
The Tampa and Orlando shows have been rescheduled ahead of Thanksgiving on November 24 and 25, respectively, according to Live Nation Florida.
“Tickets for tonight and tomorrow’s shows will be honored for the new dates,” the ticket seller tweeted shortly after Grande made the announcement on her Instagram Story Tuesday. “Refunds are available at the point of purchase.”
Meanwhile, Grande is still recovering from her questionable new wax figure in Madame Tussauds’ London location.
“I just wanna talk,” a bemused Grande commented on Pop Crave’s Instagram photo of her wax statue.
Her fans seemed to agree that the creation is a bit off: “This Ariana Grande wax figure is actually offensive,” @kellykeegs opined.
