Ariana Grandehas some feelings about Mac Miller's Grammys loss toCardi B.

TheThank U, Nextsinger, whodid not attend Sunday's showdue to differences with producers, live-tweeted throughout the majority of the telecast - but the best rap album category had Grande particularly frustrated as Miller's fifth and final studio album, Swimming, lost to Cardi'sInvasion of Privacy.

Miller, 26, died five months ago from an accidental overdose.

Though Grande, 25, tweeted, "f-" and "trash," she later clarified that she wasn't upset with Cardi who was not the "trash" to which she was referring.

"Nothing to do w her. good for her. i promise. i'm sorry," she later wrote on Twitter.

She told fans in another message: "She's not at all and that's not what i meant and u know that."

Though he did not win, Miller was honored during the In Memoriam segment of the show. His parents, Karen Meyer and Mark McCormick, were also in attendance - and its their presence that seemed to most upset Grande.

In response to another tweet about why the Grammys did not award Miller knowing his parents were at the show, Grande wrote, "this. this is what i meant. karen was gonna have a green suit made."

All of these tweets have since been deleted.
