EntertainmentAriana Grande Raves About Jim Carrey After Filming Kidding Guest Spot: 'This Was a Dream'
Grande opens up about trauma of Manchester terror attack
Ariana Grande has spoken about the trauma of the Manchester terror attack two years ago, saying there is a lot she will "probably never be ready to talk about". The US pop star had just finished a concert at the Manchester Arena in May 2017, when a suicide bomber killed 22 people at the venue. Grande has said in an interview that she struggles to talk about it even now, because her thoughts are with the families affected. The 26-year-old singer told Vogue: "It's not my trauma. It's those families.
Ariana Grande will be making a guest appearance on the upcoming second season of Showtime’s Kidding, and the experience of working with one of her idols Jim Carrey appears to have been a dream come true.
In a touching social media post on Wednesday, the “Break Free” singer, 26, raved about the actor — writing about their time together in a long caption of a photo of herself and Carrey hugging on set.
“There aren’t words,” wrote Grande. “I’ve been staring at my screen and no words do this moment justice.”
Ariana Grande on Grief and Growing Up
Beneath her perfect pop-star veneer, Ariana Grande carries around excruciating heartache. She talks to Rob Haskell about her last two years—a roller coaster of triumph, tragedy, and growing up.
“Thankful for the most special experience of my life,” Grande said. “Nothing is crazier than getting to work with and spend time with someone whom you’ve idolised and adored since before you could speak. Actually, what’s even crazier is discovering that person to be more special and warm and generous in person than you ever could’ve imagined.”
Grande went on to call Showtime’s Kidding "hilarious and deeply moving.”
Her role on the show is unknown, but Grande’s photo showed her wearing a set of wings. She called the part a “tiny appearance.”
Smith savours 'dream' Test comeback
Steve Smith says it feels like "Christmas morning every morning" after hitting two tons in his comeback Test match.
“This was a DREAM of an experience,” Grande wrote. Thank you, thank you, thank you Jim and thank you [Kidding creator Dave Holstein] for having me.”
“I have so much more to say but words actually can’t …. cover it,” she gushed.

Grande has long spoken out about her love for Carrey, even admitting that her first AOL Instant Messenger name was jimcarreyfan42 when she was in fourth grade.
Back in June, she got a tattoo of a famous quote inspired by her favourite Carrey movie, The Truman Show.
She’s also met Carrey before, video of which fans shared on social media on Wednesday.
Oh, and in April, the two had an exchange on Twitter when Grande opened up about her appreciation for Carrey’s candid quotes about depression.
“I read your lovely mention of me and things I’ve said about depression,” he wrote Grande on Twitter, after she shared images of his comments on Instagram. “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.”

Grande has been picking up more and more acting roles recently, including a role in Ryan Murphy’s upcoming movie adaptation of the Broadway musical, The Prom.
She’s currently in between stops on her Sweetener world tour, in honour of the two most recent albums she’s released — Sweetener and Thank U, Next.
Grande’s schedule has been so busy, she might miss the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards.
Though she’s scored 10 nominations, tied for the most of any artist this year, Grande has tour stops in Paris the day before and after — something that may prevent her from making it to the Los Angeles awards show.

Um, guys, care to comment?
Even if she doesn’t make it, Grande is appreciative of the honour. “Thank u so much @vmas,” she tweeted after the nominations were announced.
Meanwhile, Showtime’s Kidding — which premiered last fall — marked the first time Carrey returned to television since starring in the sketch comedy series In Living Color from 1990-1994.
On the show, the actor, painter and screenwriter portrays a lovable and kind Mr. Rogers-like television character called Mr. Pickles who uses puppets to teach wisdom and lessons to impressionable young minds.
When Mr. Pickles goes through a personal crisis, he starts slowly breaking down, and his producers start worrying that his precarious mental state will destroy Mr. Pickles’ image.
Season 2 of Kidding is expected to return this fall.
