Big Sean and Ariana Grande arrive at the 57th GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center on Feb. 8, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. 

Big Sean doesn't call his failed relationships over the past year and half mistakes, only lessons.

The 27-year-old rapper called off his engagement to actress Naya Rivera in April 2014, and just a few months later, he began dating pop princess Ariana Grande. One year after his split from Rivera, he broke it off with Grande.

The "Blessings" rapper told Entertainment Tonight at the 2015 BET Awards that he doesn't plan relationships. "They just happen," he said on the red carpet. "That's all it is. I'm just... I'm just living it. It's no, it's no God, it's no script. You know, we just out here doing what we doin'. Feelin' it out.

"It's no mistakes in life, though -- only lessons," Big Sean added.
