Reflecting on those tough times, the pop star said: 'I'm a person who's been through a lot and doesn't know what to say about any of it to myself, let alone the world. The two got engaged last June after less than a month of dating, but split in October of that same year.

Ariana Grande has had a whirlwind few years, and is now in the midst of her most successful career chapter to date following massive trauma in her personal life.
