Ariana Grande‘s 2018 has been a roller coaster … and her emotions about it came spilling out as she accepted a Woman of the Year award.
Ariana was honored at Billboard’s Women in Music Awards Thursday night and went from smiling and joking to fighting back tears. She was thrilled about reaching new heights in her career — culminating with the success of her “Thank U, Next” music vid. The singer said that might have people thinking she’s on top of the world.
She quickly reminded the crowd it’s been one of the worst years of her life, outside of music, adding … “As far as my personal life goes, I really have no idea what the f*** I’m doing.”
Ariana was clearly referring to her recent breakup with Pete Davidson … and losing her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, when he tragically died in September. Not to mention dealing with the aftermath of last year’s bombing at her Manchester concert.
Watch the video … she also threw a jab at herself for giving away “love and forgiveness” to men. She says that’s gonna change.
‘This is really special,’ the No Tears Left to Cry artist said. ‘I want to say that I find it interesting that this has been one of the best years in my career and one of like the worst years in my life.’
The Boca Raton, Florida native was likely referencing her romantic life: She was involved with the late Mac Miller from September 2016 until their split this past May; months before his fatal overdose in September from alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl.
She was also famously involved in a short, intense romance with Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson beginning in June, which culminated in a brief engagement before the pair split up in October.
Grande stressed to her fans that she’s still figuring things out like anyone else.
‘I’m just saying that because I feel like a lot of people would look at someone in my position right now I guess – Woman of the Year, an artist that could be at her peak, reaching her you know, whatever, and think, you know, “She’s really got her s*** together, she’s really on it, she has got it all,”‘ Grande said.
