When Mac Miller passed away, many were devastated, but very few more than Ariana Grande! With that being said, she will continue to honor him forever, and here’s why!
As fans may remember, only months before his untimely passing, Ariana and Mac broke up.
Apparently, while there was a lot of love, the relationship had turned toxic while she tried her best to be his rock and push him in the right direction as he struggled with substance abuse.
Understandably enough, she could no longer bear to watch her rapper boyfriend destroy himself so she ended things with him.
In May of 2018, she wrote: ‘Unconditional love is not selfish. It’s wanting the best for that person even if at that moment, it is not you. I cannot wait to know and support you forever and I am so proud of you!’
Sadly, however, in September of that same year, Miller was found dead after overdosing on drugs.
Mac Miller obviously meant a lot to Ariana and she would never get to tell him that again.
Instead, she’s been paying tribute to him every chance she gets, be it in her music or otherwise.
Now, she’s moved on with someone else but even though she is engaged with Dalton Gomez, Miller will never stop being such a big part of her life.
In 2019, she shared during an interview for Vogue that the grief was still ‘pretty all-consuming. By no means was what we had perfect, but, f**k. He was the very best person, and he did not deserve the demons that he had. I was the glue for =a long time, and I found myself becoming…just less and less sticky. The pieces started to just float away.’
It’s pretty clear that Mac Miller had a huge impact on Ariana Grande’s life, and as a result, she will never stop honoring him in her art.
