Sometimes a guy leaves a girl for another girl, and sometimes he leaves her for another guy. Ariana Grande gets it.

That's why she made it the subject of her track, "Break Your Heart Right Back." The song, which features rapper Childish Gambino, is set to appear on her upcoming album, "My Everything," due out Aug. 25.

"There is a song called 'Break Your Heart Right Back' which is about a boy that cheats on a girl with another boy," she told UK's Metro. "It’s one of my favorites on the album and it’s really funny because I believe it has happened to me. I’m not 100 percent positive but I’m 99.9 per cent positive ... I would rather he cheats on me with a guy than with a girl any day! If I found out my boyfriend was gay, I would be like 'OK!' I’d be so relieved."

The track sample's Diana Ross' classic "I'm Coming Out," according to the UK's Attitude. Grande told the publication the song's concept was "very fun."

“Well, originally it was going to be about a boy who cheats with a girl," she explained, "but then I was like, ‘No, I want it to be about a boy who cheats on a girl with another boy.'"

Earlier this week, Grande made headlines for defending her gay brother, "Big Brother" house member Frankie Grande, after an Internet troll allegedly used a homophobic slur against him on Instagram.
