Ariana Grande’s late ex boyfriend, Mac Miller, was nominated for a posthumous Grammy for his last album, Swimming. That Grammy went to Cardi B for Invasion of Privacy. Ariana was of course at home during the ceremony because she chose not to go rather than meet producer demands that she not perform her number one hit, 7 Rings. She actually won her first Grammy last night, Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener. It was her sixth nomination. Ariana expressed gratitude for that, a video of her thanking them is below, but she was also really upset that Mac lost the Grammy to Cardi. She tweeted about it, the word “trash” was used, and people dragged her for possibly demeaning Cardi B’s win. Ariana wrote that she wasn’t referring to Cardi and that she was upset on behalf of Mac’s parents, who were invited to the ceremony. Then she deleted all that. Here’s what she wrote:
Right after Cardi B was announced as the winner for her album No Privacy, Grande tweeted (and then quickly deleted) a few reaction tweets, allegedly writing, “trash” in one, “f–k” in another and then “literal bulls–t” in a third.
She also deleted a response to a fan, saying, “THEY INVITED HIS PARENTS OUT. NO.”
Then Grande responded to a fan who tweeted they didn’t think the “7 Rings” singer was shading Cardi with her reactionary tweets. “nothing to do w her. good for her. i promise. i’m sorry.”
And when another fan called Cardi “trash,” Grande defended the “Money” rapper.
“she’s not at all and that’s not what i meant and u know that,” she responded.
I’ll talk about Ariana’s reaction in a moment but there’s a really weird twist to this story. Mac Miller’s mom, Karen Meyers, went to the Grammy’s with Cazzie David, Pete Davidson’s ex girlfriend from right before he dated Ariana. I can’t wrap my mind around this but E! reports that Cazzie contacted Karen on social media after Karen’s son passed and that’s how they’re friends. Ok, that’s interesting.
Ariana should know better, that’s all I’ll say. If you interrupt someone’s win, on Twitter or on stage like Kanye, to say that someone else is more deserving, you are disparaging the work of the person who did win. She tweeted “trash!” That sounds like she’s calling Cardi trash. Ari is one of those artists who takes two steps forward and one step back all the time. While I appreciate that she’s so open she should maybe think a little more before she tweets.
Also she posted a series of photos and videos of her intended Grammys dress by Zac Posen. I love his work but I’m not sure about this dress. She …read more
