Ariana Grande Posts Furious Tweets After Cardi B Beat Mac Miller For Grammys Best Rap Album

For music's night of nights, The Grammys, all eyes were on the big categories to see if there would be any upsets.

Naturally, the biggest names in the industry were occupying some of the big slots and were tipped to take home the prize.

But there was a lot of speculation about who would take home the Grammy for Best Rap Album.

While Cardi B, Travis Scott, Pusha T and Nipsey Hussle all had incredible albums last year, people thought the late Mac Miller might take home the gong for his fifth studio album Swimming, which was also nominated for the category.

Sadly for the rapper, who died last year, Cardi B beat him for her album Invasion of Privacy.

While that might be good news for her fans, supporters of Mac Miller weren't happy, including his ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande.

The 'God is a Woman' singer posted a series of now deleted tweets following the announcement, showing just how pissed off she was that her former lover wasn't honoured at the ceremony.

She wrote 'fuck', 'bullshit' and 'literal bullshit' one after the other before quickly deleting the posts.

Ariana has since replied to people's comments (although those also seem to have been deleted) clarifying that the shade was not intended at Cardi B but just at the situation that Mac didn't win.

She said to one person: "Nothing to do w her. good for her. I promise. I'm sorry."

The 25-year-old added to another: "She's not at all and that's not what I meant and u know that."

According to PEOPLE, Ms Grande was annoyed that the Grammys had invited Miller's parents to the ceremony and didn't give him the award. He was, however, recognised during the In Memoriam section where the Grammys pays tribute to all the stars who have died since the 2018 show.

In a further display to show she wasn't against Cardi B, when the rapper posted on Instagram after her win, Ariana liked it and added a few black hearts in the comments section.

Just in case you needed further clarification.

Mac Miller, real name Malcolm McCormick, was 26 when he passed away at his San Fernando Valley, California, on 7 September last year, from a drug overdose.

Ariana Grande has spoken in the past about how devastated she was when he died suddenly and unexpectedly; so it's no surprise to see her angry at the Grammys.
