Ariana Grande has responded to criticism from some of her fan base, who think it’s just too early for her to be naming a song after fiancé Pete Davidson.
The couple got engaged mere weeks after they began dating in May, and while her fans are doing their best to be supportive, Ariana’s decision to name a song on her upcoming new album Sweetener after Davidson is too much for some.
“He’s my fiancé,” the 24-year-old replied to a comment from one user criticising the move.
“This is my album. I’m an honest and emotional artist and human being and if my openness in my work isn’t for you, that’s OK; I won’t be offended. Still wishing y’all all the love in the world.”
When another user said they were excited about the track Pete because “their love is so true and kind,” Grande replied, “Thanks. It’s a special song about the most special human being I’ve ever met.”
As well as the first song to be released, No Tears Left to Cry and follow-ups tracks The Light Is Coming and God Is a Woman, Grande’s new songs include Better Off, Blazed, REM and the aforementioned Pete, about her SNL star fiancé.
Sweetener is out August 17.
