She is the first solo female artist ever to win Best Rap Album at the Grammys.

Ariana's ex Mac Miller, who died in September, had been posthumously nominated for his fifth album Swimming and she clearly felt he would have been a more deserving victor.

"You, husband, thank you". "I've kept my mouth shut but now you're lying about me", Grande said in a tweet, going on to explain that she felt her "creativity and self-expression was stifled".

"Today for me is a celebration of something that my dad taught me, and that is 'To thine own self be true, '" Pink said.

Directly after the announcement and during the rapper's acceptance speech, Grande sent out five tweets in quick succession: "what", "f-", "trash", "bulls-", and "literal bulls-".

Miller was Grande's ex who died of a drug overdose in September 2018.

But on the night of the Grammys, Grande made a decision to don the dress she would have worn on the red carpet, had she attended the show.

I had three songs that I was for sure having.

"There's a version where I was getting married, there's a version where I'm not getting married, there's a version with nothing - we're not talking about anything", she continued. "Trust I tried and still truly wished it had worked". She took to Twitter after the announcement to reveal how thankful she was for the award.

She accessorised her look with white gloves which featured long tassels falling from the garments.

Grande's late ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, was posthumously nominated in the same category for his final album "Swimming." It was her weekend anyway, as her fifth album, Thank U, Next, dropped and dominated large swaths of social discourse.
