“Been thru hell and back and I’m doing my best to keep going”
Ariana Grande says she has been through “hell and back” after the death of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller was announced last month.
The ‘God Is A Woman’ singer made the honest confession on Instagram, while responding to a fan who criticised her recent music.
The singer had attempted to prank her fans by releasing the “official video” to new single Breathin – which was a fuzzy three minute video of the pet pig that she shares with boyfriend Pete Davidson.
But the joke failed to strike the right chord with one fan, who wrote: “This era is a joke and lazy.”
In response, Grande revealed that the video had been an attempt to please fans while she takes a short break from music.
“This era is beautiful to me but idk. Been thru hell and back and I’m doing my best to keep going. ‘Thought this would make u laugh while u wait for the real one bc i took a break to take care of myself for a lil while. My b”, she responded on PopCrave’s Instagram account.
After Grande subsequently blocked the fan, they replied: “Hi to all the ari fans that came to hate on me. I honestly didn’t even think she’d see my comment nor reply. i honestly don’t like sweetener that much (except a couple songs) and that’s just my opinion. Maybe i should have said it a little nicer or not at all but i can’t take it back. she blocked me which is understandable considering how many people she’s blocked recently and i think i deserve it.”
Ariana split from Miller earlier this year, with the singer becoming engaged to ‘Saturday Night Live’ comedian Pete Davidson shortly afterwards.
Her fourth album ‘Sweetener’ was released in August.
