Ariana took to Twitter to share the video, writing, "that time i almost died during 'love me harder' (but actually this time)." She explained the mechanical lift she was to enter the stage on malfunctioned, saying, "You need to know what happened during 'Love Me Harder.' First of all, I almost died. I'm supposed to be going up in my lift - in this wooden thing - this wooden thing breaks and I'm like...I'm about to be crunched by mechanical metal s**t and by wood and stuff..."
She demonstrated how she held on to pull herself out of harm's way. Wow. Then her guitar tech further explained that Ariana was "dangling" from the lift and he helped her, noting that she is "badass" for climbing out and going on with the show.
