In a wonderfully moving article with Vogue, Ariana Grande discusses the past two years of her life, from the Manchester bombing, to the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, and the whirlwind relationship and engagement with Pete Davidson.
For being only 26, the pop star has had a full life already. Outwardly, she presents the bubbly character that has made Grande's stage presence so iconic, but there is great depth within, a trait that is often missed when people only see the thigh-high boots and ponytail.
The article calls Ariana's relationship with Pete "a kamikaze move made in the haze of her break up with Miller." Grande shared that her friends invited her to New York to get away from her routine in Los Angeles last spring, an offer she agreed upon to get escape her west coast patterns.
On her arrival in New York, Grande recalled, "And then I met Pete, and it was an amazing distraction." The pop star went on to say, "It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic, and I loved him, and I didn’t know him. I’m like an infant when it comes to real life and this old soul, been-around-the-block-a-million-times artist. I still don’t trust myself with the life stuff."
While Grande may not trust herself with life decisions, she can certainly trust herself to use it richly in her music.
