Ariana Grande References Pete Davidson And Mac Miller In Single ‘Thank U, Next’
The lyrics speak for themselves
While there’s been a fair bit of shade thrown about on social-media recently, the lyrics to the track are about how grateful she is to every one of her ex-boyfriends - including the late Mac Miller - for teaching her a valuable lesson.
The opening verse begins: “Thought I'd end up with Sean / But he wasn't a match / Wrote some songs about Ricky / Now I listen and laugh / Even almost got married / And for Pete, I'm so thankful / Wish I could say 'thank you' to Malcolm / 'Cause he was an angel."
"One taught me love / One taught me patience / And one taught me pain / Now I'm so amazing / I've loved and I've lost / But that's not what I see / So look what I got / Look what you taught me," she continues on the track. "Thank you, next / Thank you, next / Thank you, next / I'm so f—in' grateful for my ex."
This comes as Pete addressed their break-up again on the show, saying: "I know some of you are curious about the breakup.
"But the truth is, it's nobody's business and sometimes things just don't work out. And that's okay. She's a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world."
Here's hoping they continue to keep it amicable.
