Ariana Grande says Mac Miller is 'supposed to be here' in emotional response to clip of him listening to her music
It's fair to say that singer-songwriter Ariana Grande hasn't had an easy time of it lately. In 2017, she suffered a dreadful trauma while on her Dangerous Woman tour in the UK. At a performance at the Manchester Arena on May 22, a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device in the venue's foyer, killing 23 people and seriously injuring some 500 more. Then, in MAy 2018 she broke up with her then-boyfriend Mac Miller. Many speculated that the relationship had ended as a result of Miller's struggles with addiction.
However, Grande quickly picked up a relationship with SNL comedian Pete Davidson, which seemed to suggest that she had moved on and was happy with her love life. But then tragedy struck again, after Miller died as the result of an accidental overdose, and many malicious trolls blamed Grande herself - claiming that Miller's death was a case of suicide due to depression. Shortly thereafter, Ariana and Davison called off their engagement, and she's now single.
However, it appears that, despite their breakup, Grande really misses her recently-departed ex. When a fan of her's posted an old video from Miller's Instagram Live on Twitter, which showed him listening to Ariana's song "R.E.M." Miller can be seen stating "So is this technically, is this promoting the album, is that what I'm doing? Because if so, it's a pretty solid way, it's pretty easy." Touched by the fans tribute, Ariana actually responded to the video herself in a series of tweets, thanking them personally while stating that Miller "is supposed to be here."
Recently Grande posted her own Tribute to Miller on Instagram, by posting a video of the two of them laughing together. She captioned the video: "I adored you from the day I met you when i was nineteen and I always will. I can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. I really can’t wrap my head around it. We talked about this. so many times. I’m so mad, I’m so sad I don’t know what to do. You were my dearest friend. for so long. above anything else. I’m so sorry I couldn’t fix or take your pain away. I really wanted to. the kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved. I hope you’re okay now. Rest. [sic]"
She also took to social media to share her feelings about her split from Davidson, stating in an Instagram Story: "Time to say bye bye again to the internet for just a lil bit. It’s hard not to bump news n stuff that I’m not trying to see rn. It’s very sad and we’re all tryin very hard to keep going. love u. and thank u for bein here always. [sic]"
Personally, I really hope things start getting better for Ariana, as she really is a kind and talented artist who deserves a lot more happiness in her life.
