After fans picked up on the lyrics in "thank u, next" directly referencing her former boyfriends including Mac Miller and Pete Davidson, Ariana revealed that she'd actually sent it to her exes days before she released it.
Ariana Grande performed her latest single "thank u, next" for the first time on Ellen and her "First Wives Club" dance routine saw her nearly fall down.
Despite giggling over a misstep that almost caused her to fall, Grande got choked up at one point during her performance, visibly holding back tears while singing about walking down the aisle with her mom someday.
The success of Sweetener and her split from ex-fiancé Pete Davidson seem to have propelled Ariana back into the studio for what appears to be a new album.
At one point, she climbed on top of a chair and almost fell on her way down.

It is not known why the vehicle broke down but it is understood there was no mobile phone coverage for the stranded group. Because of flooding rain and the remoteness of the area, police investigators took a few hours to reach the auto .
Naturally, Grande recovered like the professional she is, righting herself while letting out a quick "Oh my God" before returning to the song, though she did let out another laugh before reaching the track's second chorus.
There were some bumps and maybe even a few tears, but she persisted (and managed to find the fun), serving some on-point vocals as always.
But she ran into some trouble dancing around the set, which was made to look like a wedding reception, stumbling when she stepped down from a chair.
She powered through the hard moment, ending her live performance with a big smile. "We support you", host Ellen DeGeneres said after the song.
As Nicki Swift previously reported, Grande dropped "Thank U, Next" just this past weekend.
