Ariana Grande Apologizes to Ex Ricky Alvarez Over 'Thank U, Next' Lyric

The 25-year-old singer name-checked her ex-boyfriends - Pete Davidson, Mac Miller, Big Sean and Ricky - on her new song and joked with her former flame about the line she gave him.

Just before the release of "thank u, next", Ariana took to Twitter to explain what the song was about and by the sounds of things, all this shade and negativity is done. Of course, Pete Davidson is the guy who steals the spotlight, but anyone who's followed Ari and her love life can recall about Malcolm, aka Mac Miller, and maybe even Ricky, the guy who facilitated Donut Gate. Well, it worked. Grande and Jai Brooks were together for two years after he caught her attention on social media. She then continues singing: "one taught me love, taught me patience and another has taught me the pain" and then move on, "I loved and I lost, but this is not what I see, then look at what I have, look what you taught me, and for that I say: Thank you, next".

Also over the weekend, Grande thanked fans for making her "feel so not alone".
