Despite bagging a nomination for final album ‘Swimming’, Miller ultimately lost to Cardi B’s acclaimed debut Invasion of Privacy.
Responding on Twitter almost immediately, Grande hit out at the Grammys for failing to honour her ex-boyfriend, who died last September from an accidental overdose.
“Trash”, Ariana wrote in an initial tweet.
In a series of follow-up messages, she added: “Literal bullshit. Bullshit.”
After deleting the initial outburst, Ariana then responded to a fan who asked if her comments were meant as a slight on Cardi B.
“Nothing to do w her. Good for her. I promise. I’m sorry,” she responded.
She then seemingly sympathised with a fan who pointed out the significance of Miller’s parents attending the ceremony to honour their late son.
“Y’all invited Macs parent’s out and you didn’t give him an award are y’all DUMB,” the fan wrote.
Ariana responded: “This. This is what I mean. Karen [Miller’s mother] was gonna have a green suit made.”
Hailing Miller’s commitment to making ‘Swimming’, Grande explained that he “slept in the studio” for two months.
Although Cardi B is yet to respond to Ariana’s comments, she said that she planned to share the award with Miller.
“I read an article that Mac Miller family said that he don’t win, they want me to win,” said Cardi in an Instagram video.
“So I’m sharing this Grammy with you, motherfucker. Rest in peace.”
Meanwhile, Grande was last week entangled in a feud with Grammys boss Ken Ehrlich – who claimed that she had pulled out of performing at the ceremony. Hitting back, Grande accused Ehrlich of “lying” about a performance from her.
