'Been thru hell' Ariana Grande confirms break from music following Mac Miller's death

Ariana Grande has confirmed that she is taking a break from music.

The singer took to Instagram yesterday to say that she had been "thru hell and back" over the past few weeks following the death of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller.

Responding to a comment criticising her latest post, Grande wrote that she is currently on a break to "take care of myself for a little while."

She said:

"Been thru hell and back and I’m doing my best to keep going.

"Thought this would make u laugh while u wait for the real one bc i took a break to take care of myself for a lil while."

The 25-year-old was responding to a comment calling her recent joke music video "lazy."

Grande had shared a video of her's and fiancee's Pete Davidson's pet pig and joked that it was the official video for her song, 'breathin.'

One fan, however, had not seen the funny side and said: "This era is a joke and lazy."

Following Miller's death, Grande shared a touching video of the pair spending time together with the caption:

"I'm so mad, I’m so sad i don’t know what to do. you were my dearest friend. for so long. above anything else. I’m so sorry I couldn’t fix or take your pain away."

Miller and Grande had dated for two years before their split earlier this year.
