It seemed that majority of Ariana's frustration stemmed from the fact that the Recording Academy had invited the rapper's grieving parents to attend the show, which she assumed meant that he would win.

“Nothing to do with her. Good for her. I promise. I’m sorry,” the former Nickelodeon star apologized in a now deleted tweet. “She’s not trash at all and that’s not what I meant and you know that," she wrote to a questioning twitter user.

“It has nothing to do with Cardi,” a source told People about the situation. They added, Ariana “was very upset” that Mac lost when the Recording Academy purposefully invited his parents to the show.

The 25-year-old initially tweeted, "They invited his parents out. No," to a fan. Later, in response to another tweet about why the Grammys invited Mac's parent's Mark McCormick and Karen Meyers to the ceremony if they weren't going to posthumously award their son with Best Rap Album, Ariana wrote, "This is what I meant. Karen was going to have a green suit made.”

Despite her disappointment, Ariana liked and commented three black emojis alongside Cardi's Instagram which read, "We won a f**king Grammy." While the star was clearly preoccupied with other thoughts, she too earned herself her very first Grammy for Best Pop Album (Sweetener).
