(WENN) - Ariana Grande has admitted she has been through “hell and back” in the wake of the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller.
The 25-year-old singer was left heartbroken following the tragic passing of Miller last month, and is taking a break from music.
But on Wednesday, she attempted to appease her fans with a video, which she claimed was the official clip for new single Breathin.
Ariana posted a three-minute clip of her pet pig, Piggy Smallz, that she shares with comedian fiance Pete Davidson. However, one unimpressed fan commented on the post: “This era is a joke and lazy.”
In response, Ariana answered she was just trying to do something fun for her fans while she’s taking a break to take care of herself, and admitted she’d been having a tough time.
“This era is beautiful to me but idk. Been thru hell and back and I’m doing my best to keep going (sic),” she wrote in reply to the fan. “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 (sic)”, she responded on Pop Crave’s Instagram account.
The stunned fan, who came under fire from Ariana’s ‘Arianators’, later 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… 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.”
The Sweetener songstress split from Mac in May after almost two years of dating. He was found dead at his Studio City home after suffering an apparent overdose.
“You were my dearest friend. for so long. above anything else. i’m so sorry i couldn’t fix or take your pain away. i really wanted to. The kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved. i hope you’re okay now. Rest (sic),” she wrote in tribute on Instagram.
