Singer Ariana Grande apologised after tweeting “f**k” and “trash” when Cardi B won Best Rap Album forInvasion of Privacy, insisting that she hadn’t meant to shade theBodak Yellow hitmaker.

She deleted her tweets and then wrote: “[The tweets had] nothing to do w [Cardi]. good for her. I promise. I’m sorry.

“She’s not [trash] at all and that’s not what I meant and u know that.”

The God is A Woman hitmaker – who began dating the late star in August 2016 but they split early in 2018, months before he died from an accidental overdose in September – admitted that she was upset that Mac’s Swimming hadn’t taken the honour, particularly because Grammys bosses had invited his parents, Karen Meyer and Mark McCormick, to attend the ceremony.

Responding to a tweet questioning why the late rapper hadn’t received the award when his parents were there, she replied: “This. This is what I meant. karen was gonna have a green suit made.(sic)”

Meanwhile, Cardi didn’t respond to the comments, but she took to her Instagram account to share a screenshot of a story that claimed that Mac’s family wanted her to win the award if he didn’t.

She captioned the post: “WE WON A F**KIN GRAMMY (sic)”

Ariana liked the post and added three hearts in the comments.

The 7 Rings singer didn’t attend the Grammy awards as she had been locked in a dispute with event organisers over her planned performance.

Ariana, who won Best Pop Vocal Album for her record Sweetener, slammed Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich on Twitter a few days ago when she shared pictures of an interview he’d given in which he claimed she couldn’t “pull something together” in enough time.

She wrote: “I’ve kept my mouth shut but now you’re lying about me. I can pull together a performance overnight and you know that, Ken. It was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend. I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more.

“I offered 3 different songs. It’s about collaboration. It’s about feeling supported. It’s about art and honesty. Not politics. Not doing favors or playing games. It’s just a game y’all.. and I’m sorry but that’s not what music is to me. (sic)”

Mac was honoured in the evening’s In Memoriam segment.
