Ariana Grande is getting incredibly personal, opening up about her relationship with the late Mac Miller and her former engagement to Pete Davidson.

The "Thank U, Next" singer gets real about her personal life in the August issue of Vogue.

Posing on the iconic fashion cover wearing all black and an oversized hat, the animal lover made sure to include her dog, Toulouse.

Speaking about everything from losing Miller, her failed engagement with Davidson and how "drunk" and "sad" she was while making her last album, we've never seen Grande get so real.

Mac Miller overdosed and died in September 2018, four months after the rapper and Grande called it quits.

She was engaged to Pete Davidson at the time of Miller's death. Calling the grief of his sudden passing "all-consuming," she tells Vogue of their unique relationship.

"By no means was what we had perfect, but, like, f***. He was the best person ever, and he didn’t deserve the demons he had," she said. "I was the glue for such a long time, and I found myself becoming… less and less sticky. The pieces just started to float away.”

At the time of his death, Grande poured her heart out while paying tribute to the late star.

"I adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will," she wrote. "i can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. i really can’t wrap my head around it. we talked about this."

"i’m so sorry i couldn’t fix or take your pain away. i really wanted to," she continued, adding Miller was "the kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved."

One month before, Ariana Grande had gotten engaged to "SNL" star Pete Davidson.

The two had a quick, whirlwind romance that the singer explained in the latest Vogue issue, calling their relationship “an amazing distraction."

“It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic, and I loved him, and I didn’t know him,” she revealed.

“I’m like an infant when it comes to real life and this old soul, been-around-the-block-a-million-times artist. I still don’t trust myself with the life stuff," she added.

As The Blast reported, Grande shocked fans by announcing their wedding plans just one month after her split with Miller.

The rapper even spoke on the engagement news, saying he was "happy" for her but admitted "the whole thing is a little strange."

Grande and Davidson broke up in October 2018.

The instant success of Grande's fifth album took the world by storm, but it was a very personal experience for the star, who admits she wasn't always present at the time.

"I don’t remember those months of my life because I was (a) so drunk and (b) so sad," Grande explained. "I don’t really remember how it started or how it finished, or how all of a sudden there were 10 songs on the board."

"I think that this is the first album and also the first year of my life where I’m realizing that I can no longer put off spending time with myself, just as me," she added.

In May 2017, a suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured several others following Ariana Grande's concert.

She's since continued to remember the experience -- getting a tattoo in tribute and hosting the One Love Manchester concert. While she relieves the incident every day, she admits the focus should be on the victim's families.

"It’s not my trauma," she says. "It’s those families. It’s their losses, and so it’s hard to just let it all out without thinking about them reading this and reopening the memory for them.”
