Having begun—and ended—the most high-profile celebrity relationship of 2018, Ariana Grande was a major tabloid target last year. Mere hours into 2019, one site posted a headline that read, “Who Is Ariana Dating NOW?!” A Grande fan posted the Snapchat headline with the caption, “what,” and Grande herself shut down the dating rumors in the replies.
As Grande stated herself in her 2018 Billboard Woman of the Year speech, 2018 was a tumultuous year for her personally.
“I find it interesting that this has been one of the best years of my career and the worst of my life,” she said while accepting the December 6th award. She continued, “I look forward to hopefully learning to give some of the love and forgiveness that I’ve given away so frivolously and easily to men in the past to myself.”
Grande sent 2018 out with a bang in a December 31st Instagram post, writing, “farewell 2018, you f-ck. i hope this new year brings you all much laughter, clarity and healing. 🖤 be gentle with yourselves and each other. if we made it thru this last year, we’ll for sure make it thru this one. thank you for everything. 🖤”
You do you, girl.
