And the 25-year-old looked happy to be receiving such positive reports as she was spotted out beaming with joy in Malibu on Thursday night.
It's finally arrived. Ariana Grande's Thank U, Next album is here in full and so far the track "Ghostin" has left die-hard fans in tears over the honesty and emotional lyrics that are so clearly about her exes, Mac Miller and Pete Davidson.

A similar thing happened with Lorde at last year's ceremony, with bosses reportedly refusing to let her perform a song from her Melodrama album.
You wouldn't have guessed, two years ago, that Ariana Grande would slot into this exalted position.
"Baby, you do it so well/You been so understanding, you been so good/And I'm puttin" you through more than one ever should/And I'm hating myself "cause you don't want to/Admit that it hurts you".
The Grammys boss claims he told Ariana the song wasn't appropriate for the ceremony and he asked her to pick another, but after several conversations she decided not to perform or attend music's big night. It was when my creativity & self-expression was stifled by you that I decided not to attend. Not politics. Not doing favours or playing games.
"I offered 3 different songs", she wrote. She then joked: "Passed a Grammy's bus with my face on it typing those".
"Hope that helps everyone understand my decision", she tweeted.
The 2019 Grammy Awards are set to air Sunday, February 10 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
