Billboard names Ariana Grande 2018 Woman of the Year

Ariana Grande

Grande, however, wanted to ensure her listeners and followers that "thank u, next" was not meant to be a clap-back or revenge song.

On today's episode of Ellen, Grande performed the song live for the first time.

This was real and authentic and so, so on point!

Ariana Grande isn't flawless, but she's so good with that!

In the video, Ariana sings about overcoming life's challenges using the power of breath as she makes her way through crowded locales solo. "Thought I'd end up with Sean/But he wasn't a match/Wrote some songs about Ricky/Now I listen and laugh/Even nearly got married/And for Pete I'm so thankful/Wish I could say "Thank you" to Malcolm/'Cause he was an angel", she sings.

Many wept when they saw search personnel working. "We are the victims here". The single-aisle family is Boeing's biggest source of profit.

"Ariana Grande is a star on her own terms, never bending to any particular musical trend or path in the industry", Ross Scarano, Billboard's vp of content said.

Ariana Grande has been dealing with a lot lately from the passing of her ex (Mac Miller) to her breakup with fiance, Pete Davidson.

She moved into more emotional territory as the song progressed, holding back tears while singing about her future wedding day. It was a fun dance and a good song, but the moment that will stick in everyone's head comes when Grande trips on one of her vertiginous heels and interrupts herself for a quick "Ohmygod!".

We loved how she and her girls simply marched up the stairs and off the set at the end of the number giving great attitude and girl power, but DeGeneres was on the stage waiting to chat with her. But Davidson took the high road.

But, just as the song says, Grande knows how to handle the pain. "She's a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world".
