After she nearly let the anxiety of it all get the best of her, the Sweetener performer was able to complete her taped performance for NBC's A Very Wicked Halloween alongside Idina Menzel. Time to say bye bye again to the internet for jus a lil bit. "It's hard not to bump news [and] stuff that I'm not [trying] to see [right now]".
The singer went to extreme lengths to ensure she'd have no contact with her ex-fiance after their whirlwind engagement abruptly ended. Over the past couple months or so, in fact, she's had a lot going on: She mourned the loss of Mac Miller, with whom she was previously in a long-term relationship, and although neither she nor Pete Davidson have addressed it directly, it appears that they have called off their engagement and are no longer in a relationship. While getting ready for her performance, Grande revealed that her high anxiety nearly caused her to back out of the recording.
The 25-year-old singer announced the break on her Instagram Stories, in a message that has since been deleted.
Ariana Grande was here for the wizard - not Pete Davidson.
Grande and Davidson got engaged in June after just a few weeks of dating, and a few weeks after Grande and rapper Mac Miller broke up. Pete is still so in love with her. News earlier, "Pete has really been there for Ariana and she will always have a special place in her heart for him, but told him that right now is not the best time". "Their family and friends stand behind their decision entirely and Ariana's team feels this will give her time to heal".
