The 22-year-old singer, who split from the 28-year-old rapper in April after eight months of dating, wasn't left heartbroken because they're still friends.
The 'Problem' hitmaker said: ''I'm good at making the best out of something. It also wasn't that hard for me, because we were friends. So it's chill.''
Ariana has since moved on with back-up dancer Ricky Alvarez, but doesn't want her relationships to overshadow her career.
The 'One More Time' singer said: ''I would prefer to be referred to as just Ariana. But then some people were being like, what a hypocrite, because now she has a new boyfriend. But they're still missing the point. It doesn't matter whether I'm on my own or not. Whatever I decide to do with my body, with my heart, and with my life, I can still be my own person.''
Despite going through a high profile break up, Ariana doesn't think she is an expert on the subject.
She told 'Scream Queens' creator Ryan Murphy in an interview for V magazine: ''I'm not going to pretend I have great break up advice. It's hard. Good luck. You'll be fine. You don't need anyone. It's nice to have someone that makes you happy, but it's nice to be happy on your own as well. You don't need to depend on another person for your happiness. That person can contribute to your happiness, but you're two whole beings on your own.''
They might sound like they're from the 70s, but they way they roll is very 2020.
