The Good for You hitmaker admits she was left “p***ed” and heartbroken when the pop star decided they should go their separate ways after dating since the beginning of 2011.
She said: “I think people really wanted to see me fail. I’d sit down in an interview and get the most harshly asked questions. Of course I got my heart broken. Of course I was p***ed about it.
“There, everybody has it. I was so disappointed, because I never wanted my career to be a tabloid story.
“At this point, there is no anger. There’s closure in a very good, healthy way. We’ve seen each other. I’m always encouraging and I am proud of his journey.
“I think people are making it out to be something that is more tragic than it really was. We grew up together. We both made mistakes. That’s it.”
The 23-year-old beauty, who is now happy being single and having fun with guys, also admits she found it “uncomfortable and scary” having to deal with such a public break up.
She told Refinery 29: “The year wasn’t just me trying to transition in my career – it was my whole life. I had to reconfigure everything. That was a little uncomfortable and very scary. I didn’t have anything to fall back on …
“You can try to work on things and fix them, but at the end of the day, you have to accept what is in front of you, and that’s sometimes hard to do.
“I think there are people who have been in my life who are seasonal. Even people who I have dated have been just that. It’s part of growing up.”
