Ariana Grande delivered an emotional speech at Billboard’s 2018 Women in Music Awards.
The 25-year-old was honoured with the Woman Of The Year award, and Ariana performed a stunning rendition of her hit song, ‘Thank U, Next’.
After a video of major artists like Pharrell and Katy Perry was played, is which they praised her never-ending talents, the singer took to the stage to deliver a heartwrenching speech.
Holding back tears, Ariana told the crowd, “This is really special. I want to say that I find it interesting that this has been one of the best years of my career, and the worst of my life.”
The singer went on to explain that she isn’t asking for sympathy, but hopes to inspire others who might be going through a tough time.
“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 shit together; she’s really on it; she has got it all’,” she said, before adding, “I do, but as far as my personal life goes I really have no idea what the f**k I am doing.”
“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.”
Ariana concluded, “I look forward to hopefully learning to give some of the love and forgiveness that I have given away so frivolously and easily to men in the past to myself this year.”
