Ariana Grande 'didn't know' Pete Davidson

Ariana Grande 'didn't know' Pete Davidson

Early in the interview, Ariana brings up her ex Mac Miller and details how her first time at Coachella was to see him perform.

She explains that her friends encouraged her to move to NY following Mac's death, where she wrote chart-topping album Thank U, Next partly in response.

"My friends were like, Come!"

"Then I met Pete, and it was an incredible distraction. Like, 'She's really on it.' Like, 'She's got it all.' I do, but as far as my personal life goes, I really have no idea what the f- I'm doing so yeah, it's been a very conflicting one".

Reflecting on those tough times, the pop star said: 'I'm a person who's been through a lot and doesn't know what to say about any of it to myself, let alone the world. "The pieces just started to float away" she said.

Largely celebrated as her best yet, it was made in an incredibly short time after Miller's passing - just one month after Sweetener's release, an album centred on lightness, healing and new love with Pete Davidson, who she became engaged to shortly after they began dating (by October, they broke up).

"I don't really remember how it started or how it finished, or how all of a sudden there were 10 songs on the board", Grande says. Despite their time apart, Grande often times felt overwhelmed worrying about Miller's well-being. "I've been boo'd up my entire adult life", she admitted.

The wide-ranging interview covered several topics - from the artist's childhood to her ex-boyfriends - but it briefly focused on politics, with Vogue describing Grande as "passionately pro-LGBTQ" and "passionately anti-Donald Trump".

"I have this idea of what I'd like to be", she said.

Prior to her romance with Pete, Ariana had been in a two-year relationship with late star Mac Miller who tragically died aged 26 after an accidental overdose in September. "Am I allowed to say that?" They did not see the years of work and fighting and trying, or the love and the exhaustion.

Reflecting on the time she spent recording the hit album Thank U, Next, the singer confessed that booze played a big part in the production process.

2018 did not go easy on Ariana Grande in the slightest, but seeing how far she has come these past few months just goes to show that the hard times can not get the best of her. "So Thank U, Next was this moment of self-realization", she continued.

When Mac, real name Malcolm McCormick, was arrested for drink driving in May 2018 a few months before his death, some fans tried to blame Ariana for breaking up with him.

"I like having my amusing character that I play that feels like this exaggerated version of myself".
