Ariana Grande brought the audience to their feet while getting extremely real during her speech at the 2018 Billboard’s Women in Music event on Thursday (December 6) in New York City.
The 26-year-old singer was honored by Patti LaBelle as she took to the stage to receive the Woman of the Year award during the event.
“This is really special. I want to say that I find it interesting that this has been one of the best years in my career and one of like the worst years in my life,” Ariana said holding back tears.
Ariana then got very candid about her rough year, including breaking off her engagement from Pete Davidson.
“I’m just saying that because I feel like a lot of people would look at someone in my position right now I guess; Woman of the Year, an artist that could be at her peak, reaching her you know, whatever, and think, you know, ‘She’s really got her s–t together; she’s really on it; she has got it all,’” Ariana continues. “I do, but as far as my personal life goes I really have no idea what the f–k I am doing,” she candidly shared. “So yeah, it’s been a very conflicting one. I just want to say if you’re someone out there who has no idea what this next chapter is going to bring, you’re not alone in that.”
