Did Ariana Grande Slam Cardi B Grammy Win? Singer Tweets and Deletes 'Trash' After Mac Miller Loses

Ariana Grande was not pleased after ex-boyfriend Mac Miller lost at the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday. The late rapper was nominated for Best Rap Album for his fifth and final studio album, Swimming, but lost to Cardi B's Invasion of Privacy.

Grande, who did not attend the 61st annual Grammys, spent much of the evening live tweeting about the awards show. When Miller's name wasn't called for the award, Grande took to Twitter, writing "trash" and "f**k" shortly after.

The 25-year-old Thank U, Next singer later explained that her tweets were not directed at Cardi's win over Miller. "Nothing to do w her. Good for her. I promise. I'm sorry," she wrote.

Further tweets revealed Grande may have been upset over the Grammys inviting Miller's family to the award show knowing the deceased rapper was not going to take home the gold. Grande responded to a fan tweet asking why the organization invited Miller's parents in the first place. "This. This is what I meant. Karen was gonna have a green suit made."

Grande has since deleted all of the tweets.

Miller's mother, Karen Meyers, attended the awards on her son's behalf. Despite not taking the award for Best Rap Album, Miller was celebrated during the In Memoriam segment of the ceremony, which honored the artistry of all the musicians who have died within the last year.

After accepting the award, Cardi shared an Instagram video thanking various people for their support. She recognized Miller, with whom she shared her big Grammy win. "I read an article that Mac Miller's family said that if he don't win, they want me to win so I'm sharing this Grammy with you mother**ker. Rest in peace," she said.

Cardi additionally shared a screenshot of a January Us Weekly report that claimed Miller's family was "rooting for Cardi B," if the "Self Care" rapper didn't win.

Twenty-six-year-old Miller died in September 2018 following an accidental overdose involving a combination of cocaine, fentanyl and alcohol.

Grande and Miller dated for two years before they split in May 2018.
