Ariana Grande has suggested that she was still in love with Mac Miller while dating her ex boyfriend Pete Davidson, as she details the meaning behind her new song.
One of the 25-year-old pop starlet’s fans took to Twitter following the release of her new album Thank U, Next, to ask what the track Ghostin’ was about.
Ariana confirmed that the song was about feeling bad for your partner because you are in love with somebody else and knowing he can tell that he doesn’t compare.
She added that it is also about how she should be ‘ghosting’ the person she was in love with, prompting the name of the no doubt soon-to-be hit track.
The 7 Rings singer’s admission caused a frenzy between her fans who began to speculate that the song was about Mac while she was dating Pete.
Ariana and Mac split after a two-year relationship and she soon found love again with Pete, who proposed to her just weeks after the first reports they were dating.
Taking the time to dissect the lyrics in the track, Elle magazine speculated on the lines in the song that could be linked to her past relationships.
The line: ‘Baby, you do it so well. You been so understanding, you been so good. And I’m puttin’ you through more than one ever should. And I’m hating myself ’cause you don’t want to. Admit that it hurts you’, could potentially be about Ariana’s struggle over losing Pete, who died following an alleged drug overdose in September.
It was also suggested by the publication that the lyrics: ‘I know that it breaks your heart when I cry again. Over him’ presumably mean that the ‘him’ is Mac.
