The ‘Thank U, Next’ singer shared a photo on her Instagram Story of three brains scans she had sent to a group text message and captioned it, “Not a joke.”

Displayed in the photo are two side-by-side brain scans that show what a “healthy brain” and “PTSD brain” look like.

“guys….,” she texts her group, adding, “my brain.” Despite the image being in black and white, you can clearly see Grande’s brain scan and the multitude of highlighted areas it has which is almost double the amount of what she previously shared.

As she puts it, her brain scan reveals the “hilarious and terrifying” levels of PTSD she has.

Last June, the singer-songwriter candidly spoke about her anxiety and “signs of PTSD” with British Vogue.“I hate…yeah…admitting it but it very much is,” she told the publication.

“That’s what everyone was telling me. It’s hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss. But, yeah, it’s a real thing. I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well.”

She added, “Time is the biggest thing. I feel like I shouldn’t even be talking about my own experience—like I shouldn’t even say anything. I don’t think I’ll ever know how to talk about it and not cry.”
