4 outstanding lessons from Ariana Grande's album “Eternal Sunshine” | ELLE

Last March 8, singer Ariana Grande officially released her seventh studio album titled Eternal Sunshine . The album quickly achieved many outstanding achievements, well received by Ariana’s fan community in particular and music lovers around the world in general. On the one hand, Eternal Sunshine has many details reminiscent of the emotional relationships that took place in the female singer’s life. On the other hand, the album is an important milestone marking her maturity after the breakdown of her marriage, and at the same time brings the image of Ariana Grande to be more mature and confident than ever. Through the songs in Eternal Sunshine , Ariana sent the audience thoughtful messages about love and the value of each person.

Ignorance does not bring true happiness

“Ignorance is a bliss” is an English idiom, implying that sometimes not knowing or not caring about a person or thing can make you less worried and more likely to feel happy. However, Ariana Grande sent an opposite message in the MV for the song We Can’t Be Friends (Wait For Your Love) . The MV is based on Eternal Sunshine Of A Spotless Mind (2004) – a movie starring Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet, revolving around a couple who decide to erase all memories of each other after breaking up.

We Can’t Be Friends (Wait For Your Love) is a sad but creative story about Peaches (Ariana Grande) – who is trying to move on after a breakup but can’t. Therefore, she decided to go to a clinic to erase her memories of her ex-lover. However, in a moment, when memories of the person she loved came back one after another, Ariana’s character couldn’t hold back her tears and unconsciously clutched the necklace that person once gave her. This action implies that from the depths of her heart, Peaches never wanted to forget the other person and the beautiful memories between the two of them.

The story in We Can’t Be Friends (Wait For Your Love) depicts the common mood of many people when love breaks down. It’s a heartbreaking feeling, not being able to bear to give up the person you love and the memories of the past. That pain has led some people to believe that trying to ignore or even forget the memories of the other person can help soothe their souls. However, like the message Ariana conveys in the MV, this action cannot bring us true happiness, and is not the answer to how to overcome the pain after a breakup. In fact, memories of your ex – whether beautiful or sad – are a memorable step on your love journey. Instead of trying to ignore or treat them as if they never existed, you should learn to accept and appreciate their presence in your life.

Be brave enough to let go when necessary

The third song in Ariana Grande’s new album – Don’t Wanna Break Up Again – revolves around the concerns when deciding to end a relationship with a loved one. Throughout the song is the girl’s internal struggle, when she wants to let go and hold on to love: “This situation has to end. But I just can’t refuse. I don’t wanna break up again” (roughly translated: “This ambiguity has to end. But I can’t deny that I don’t want us to break up again.” ).

However, she also clearly understands that continuing will only bring pain to both of them: “We both know it’s time. So we say goodbye. Just one kiss goodbye. With tears in our eyes. Hope you won’t, won’t regret me. Hope you’ll still think fondly of our little life” (roughly translated: “We both knew it was time. So we said goodbye, with a farewell kiss, with wet eyes. Hope you won’t I regret you. I hope you will still miss our short love story.”

In life, love stories are sometimes not what we want. However, in some cases, the best thing we can do is accept that each person walks on their own path. Although painful, this is one of the right things that brings both of them peace of mind.

Stop caring about what other people think of you

In the opening song Yes, And? Released in January 2024, Ariana Grande had a strong and bold response to public and media discussions about her personal life. The female singer declared: “Your business is yours and mine is mine” (roughly translated: “Your business has nothing to do with me, and my business has nothing to do with you” . Not only is Ariana’s tough response to the media, the above statement is also a message to those who are easily influenced by what others think of them. Always paying attention to other people’s thoughts can easily make you feel worried and hesitant to act. In the long run, this can stop you from becoming the best version of yourself. Therefore, instead of constantly worrying and worrying about other people’s thoughts or judgments, always be confident in your decisions!

How do we know if we love the wrong person?

In the first song of the album – Intro (End of The World) , Ariana Grande asks the question “How can I tell if I’m in the right relationship?” (roughly translated: “How do I know I’ve loved the right person?” ). This question was answered by her grandmother Nonna in the album’s closing song – Ordinary Things . According to Nonna, if you feel uncomfortable kissing your partner goodnight, maybe you two are not really meant for each other (original: “Never go to bed without kissing goodnight. That’s the worst thing to do. Don’ t ever ever ever do that. And if you can’t, and if you don’t feel comfortable doing it, you’re in the wrong place” .

In fact, feeling uncomfortable doing the normal things that come with being in love – like kissing goodnight or saying intimate things – can be a sign that you’re in love with the wrong person. At that time, you should take time to review your feelings and make timely decisions to avoid hurting yourself and that person.
