Ariana Grande's pet pig is the "love of [her] life".

The No Tears Left To Cry hitmaker ended her engagement to Pete Davidson earlier this month following her whirlwind romance but she's being comforted by her porcine pal Piggy Smalls.

Asked how her pet is by a fan on Twitter, she replied: "the absolute love of my life. i have no idea what i did ...... to deserve her (sic)"

And after a difficult few months which has also seen Ariana mourn her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, the 25-year-old singer admitted she's been working through her feelings in the recording studio and is almost ready to release the follow up to 'Sweetener', which will be her second new album in a year.

After a fan expressed surprise she was planning to release new music so quickly, she wrote: "how u think i survived these 2/3 months ksjsksjs ......... damn love u (sic)"

Previously, the Bang Bang hitmaker had said she was taking a break from music after having "been through hell".

Ariana had teased an "official video" for Sweetener track 'breathin', and when the clip turned out to be a three-minute video of Piggie Smalls  snuffling on her bed, one fan branded the output as "lazy".

Ariana then fired back: "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 (Sic)"

Meanwhile, the God is a Woman singer had previously spoken about her battle with anxiety when it comes to performing on stage, following the Manchester terror attack in May 2017 when 22 people were killed by a suicide bomber outside Manchester Arena after a concert she had performed in the venue.
