Ariana Grande just slayed her social media audience by releasing her cover of Vogue that is set to hit magazine stands soon. The pop singer got candid while speaking in her interview on everything from her new music to her past relationships.
Mac Miller and Ariana Grande dated for two years before splitting and had been friends for many more. Not soon before his tragic death last year, it was revealed that he had long been battling substance abuse.
Ariana tearfully opened up about the infamous tweet she sent to people who blamed her for Mac Miller’s decline and how she had been taking on the rapper’s sickness for years before her worst nightmare came true.
‘They didn’t see the years of work and fighting and trying, or the love and exhaustion. That tweet came from a place of complete defeat, and you have no idea how many times I warned him that that would happen and fought that fight, for how many years of our friendship, of our relationship. You have no idea so you’re not allowed to pull that card, because you don’t f***** know. That’s where that came from.’
However, she made it clear that she didn’t blame Miller for anything.
‘By no means was what we had perfect, but, like, f***. He was the best person ever, and he didn’t deserve the demons he had.’
As far as her very public quickie engagement and break up with Pete Davidson, Grande is very conscious about what went wrong.
‘My friends were like, ‘Come! We’re gonna have a fun summer.’ And then I met Pete, and it was an amazing distraction. It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic, and I loved him, and I didn’t know him.’
Although her last album tapped into every emotion a human could experience, Ariana knows that sometimes her highest-selling songs aren’t meant to have a deeper meaning.
‘A lot of my singles have been hilariously lacking in substance. You’re talking to someone who put ‘Side to Side’ out as a single. I love that song, but it’s just a fun song about sex.’
The 26-year-old also speaks about a variety of topics including her upbringing, the Manchester tragedy, and how important her friends are to her during the most difficult times of her life.
