In a new interview with Zane Lowe of Beats 1, Mac Miller is opening up about his relationship with singer Ariana Grande, which the two ended in May. While the pop star has since moved on and gotten engaged to Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson, the Pittsburgh rapper says he's happy for her.

"It's strange. Like, the whole thing is a little strange but it's not negative," Miller said. "It's just a part of something that's going to continue to help make me who I am. You know, it's all positive energy. I am happy for her and moving forward with her life just as I'm sure she is with me."

The "Small Worlds" rapper also spoke about his time together with Grande and said the two actually had a normal relationship despite their mega-fame status. While the former couple did have their stressful moments, Miller says he was in love with Grande. "You know, like, I was in love with somebody. We were together for two years. We worked through good times, bad times, stress and everything else," he said. "And then it came to an end and we both moved on. And it's that simple, you know."

The Swimming artist also opened up about his May hit-and-run accident that saw him get arrested for a DUI. While the incident would be embarrassing for many, the Pittsburgh rapper says it was the best thing that could have ever happened to him.

"I needed to run into that light pole and literally, like, have the whole thing stop," Miller said about the May 17 crash that occurred in California. According to the rapper, while he admits it was a stupid mistake, he believes he needed the wake up call.

"What you don’t understand is that I lived a certain life for 10 years and faced almost no real consequence at all," he told Lowe. "I had no version of the story that didn't end up with me being fine. Yeah, I made a stupid mistake. I'm a human being. Like, drove home drunk. But it was the best thing that could have happened... I needed that."
