Ariana Grande has been taking some much-needed down time after the death of her ex-boyfriend and rapper Mac Miller last month.

Last night she uploaded an unofficial video for Sweetener track "breathin", featuring her new piglet that she owns with fiancé Pete Davidson.

One fan was quick to respond negatively, stating, "This era is a joke and lazy.”

Grande replied to the comment, stating, "This era is beautiful to me but idk. Been thru hell and back and I’m doing my best to keep going. ‘Thought this would make u laugh while u wait for the real one bc i took a break to take care of myself for a lil while. My b."

Having decided not to appear at last month's Emmy Awards, The Independent reported that a spokesperson for Grande stated, "Given the events of the past couple of years, Ariana is going to take some much needed time to heal and mend. She will be staying close to home and using this period to spend time with her loved ones and work on new music without deadline. She thanks fans for her understanding."

Ariana Grande's Sweetener is available now. An hour-long feature on Ariana Grande is coming to BBC One later this year.
