Ariana Grande "almost died" when she got trapped in a malfunctioning lift.
The 21-year-old chart-topper was performing at the opening night of her 'The Honeymoon Tour' in Kansas City on Wednesday evening (25.02.15) when a wooden platform which was supposed to take her onto the stage snapped, causing her to narrowly avoid getting "crushed".
Speaking in a 'Honeymoon Diaries' video update titled "that time i almost died during love me harder (but actually this time) (sic)," she explained: "I almost died. I can't stop thinking about this, because it was literally the craziest. So the wooden thing breaks and goes like this! (sic)"
The 22-year-old star - who is dating rapper Big Sean - then gestured how the panel had snapped from a horizontal to a vertical position, and went on to explain the terrifying moments which followed, during which she clung onto a beam until she was saved by crew members.
She continued: "I'm about to be crushed by mechanical, by metal s**t and by wood and stuff, and I go like this and grab this thing."
However, the near-death experience, which happened during a performance of her single 'Love Me Harder', didn't faze her and she managed to continue singing the hit.
She added: "I didn't drop the mic. I was like, 'Oh I gotta keep singing.' "
Following the show, the 'Problem' hitmaker vented about the freaky incident on her Twitter account, confessing she still enjoyed the performance.
She wrote: "We did it!!!! I ALMOST DIED ONCE BUT OTHER THAN THAT IT FELT PRETTY GOOD! i love u kansas city. so much. thank u for putting up w my nerves.
"Anyway... i'm so proud of / thankful for my honeymoon crew / friends. today was a dream (little f ups included). only gets better from here. (sic)"
