Ariana Grande feels 'insatiable frustration' over narrative around her relationship

Ariana Grande feels "an insatiable frustration" about the narrative around her relationship with Ethan Slater.

The 'Yes, And?' hitmaker started dating her 'Wicked' co-star last summer following news of her divorce from Dalton Gomez, while Ethan split from his childhood sweetheart Lilly Jay when filming for the movie got underway.

Addressing the conversation around her person life, she told 'The Zach Sang Show': "I feel like we don't need to go into any specifics.

"But of course, there's an insatiable frustration, inexplicable, hellish feeling with watching people misunderstand the people you love, and you and anything."

The 30-year-old singer admitted she's actually concerned he upcoming new album 'Eternal Sunshine' could prompt further speculation.

However, she insisted while some of her lyrics "real real", others blur the lines.

She explained: "Pieces of it touch on things that are real and then pieces of it are also just like… part of the concept.

"So what is that separation? And it's so scary to leave it up to these selective memory people to decipher. It's scary.

"But I digress. It's too late. The vinyls have been printed."

Late last year, Ariana reflected on 2023 and insisted she was "deeply misunderstood" by those who don't actually know the real her.

She wrote on Instagram: "I have never felt more pride or joy or love while simultaneously feeling so deeply misunderstood by people who don't know me, who piece whispers together and make what they want out of me and their assumptions of my life.

"I have learned how much more important one of those things is than the other... I have never felt more tightly held or fiercely protected by those who love and understand me (friends, family, and fans alike).

"I feel safe even amidst so many things I'd usually be afraid of. I'm listening to and trusting myself, even when fear or trauma tells me not to.

"I am reacting to things that deserve my energy only and removing and protecting myself from things that do not."
