Ariana Grande covers up Pete Davidson tattoo with special tribute to her late ex Mac Miller

Singer-songwriter Ariana Grande has had a rough couple of years. We all remember with horror how, back in 2017, a terrorist attack during one of her performances on her Dangerous Woman tour in the UK left several people dead. On May 22 at the Manchester Arena, a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device in the foyer of the building and managed to kill 23 people and injure 500 more. In May she broke up with her then-boyfriend Mac Miller, who had been struggling with addiction issues for a number of years.

For a while, things seemed to be back on track after Grande began a relationship with Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson. Yet tragedy struck again after Miller died of accidental overdose. Many cruel trolls on social media blamed Grande for  Miller's death, claiming that his demise was a case of suicide brought about by depression caused by the breakup. Ariana and Davison called off their engagement not long after, and she is now single.

Now Grande has managed to make headlines with her new single Thank U, Next, the video of which currently boasts almost 90 million views on YouTube. However, it seems that the singer still hasn't forgotten about her departed ex, after eagle-eyed fans noticed that she'd covered up something very special. Now Ariana Grande is no stranger to inking, and she has a number of tattoos on her body. One of these is a tribute to Pete Davison.  When Grande performed at NBC's A Very Wicked Halloween she covered up this tattoo with a Band-Aid.
She also had the word "Reborn" inked on her hand in a tribute to Davidson, which has since been turned into a feather. However, this week the Grande Instagram fan account "@yourarisource" posted a video of some behind-the-scenes footage from the filming of "Thank U, Next" music video. In a sequence which was obviously a homage of the Reese Witherspoon movie Legally Blonde, Grande teaches Jennifer Coolidge the bend and snap dance move. The fans had spotted that the "8414" tattoo she'd once on her foot had been replaced with "Myron"  - the name of Mac Miller's dog.

Trolls have often accused Grande of "milking" Miller's death for publicity purposes and at one point these accusations got so bad that Grande was forced to reply. In a post on Twitter she wrote: "I pray you never have to deal with anything like this ever and I'm sending you peace and love ... Some of the s--t I read on here makes me sick to my stomach. It scares me the way some people think and I don't like this world a lot of the time. If only we could be more compassionate and gentle with one another. That'd be sick. [sic]"

It's good to see that Grande is still being respectful to the memory of the man she once loved. She really is something special.
