Ariana Grande: Read Her Heartbreaking Statement About Mac Miller’s Death
Hope you’re prepared to get in a good cry right now.
Because if you continue reading, trust us, it’s coming.
As you surely know by now, rapper Mac Miller passed away last week.
He was only 26 years old.
We still don’t have too many details about what happened, but here’s what we do know:
Mac was found dead in his home last Friday around noon, and when emergency responders arrived on the scene after receiving a 911 call, they saw that he’d been dead for several hours.
There’s no official cause of death yet, but the assumption is that he died of an overdose, considering the fact that he’s been dealing with addiction for several years.
Toxicology reports take a while, so it will likely be several more weeks before we learn what happened to him.
The night before his body was found, he’d been hosting a party in his home, and it sounds like the party got a bit out of hand.
Witnesses even claimed that several of his guests were there until Friday morning, when they rushed out of the house just before police arrived.
Because of this, some people are suspicious that something more than an overdose happened that night, but police aren’t investigating.
On a different note, another thing we know about his death is that as awful and implausible as it sounds, many of Mac’s fans are blaming Ariana Grande.
Ariana and Mac dated for a couple of years before breaking up in May, and a few weeks after that, she was engaged to Pete Davidson.
The idea seems to be that she should have done more to help him with his problems, or that her quick engagement broke his heart and caused him to ramp up his drug use.
It’s silly, because it’s not Ariana couldn’t force him to give up drugs, and she’s not responsible for his choices, no matter what.
People were so cruel about this that she had to turn off comments on her Instagram, as if she wasn’t hurting enough.
Speaking of Instagram, she shared a sweet picture of Mac there last weekend, and although she didn’t say anything about his death, it was a lovely little tribute.
But now, in another post, she’s really opening up about what happened.
And it is rough.
This time, she posted a video of him, and while it’s a little hard to tell what’s happening, it’s still precious.
He’s talking with someone else about something when he notices Ariana filming him, and he laughs and says “Baby, stop!”
They start laughing together, and she says “it makes me so happy,” so he tells her “I’ll tell you the story as many times as you want.”
It’s sad enough to see him laughing and having a good time after knowing how things turn out for him, but things get even sadder once you read the caption she wrote to go along with the video.
“i adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will,” she began.
“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,” she continued. “i’m so sad i don’t know that 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.”
She finished by calling Mac “the kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved.”
“i hope you’re okay now,” she told him. “rest.”
Mac’s funeral will take place sometime in the next few days in Pittsburgh, his hometown, and according to reports, she’ll be in attendance.
Here’s hoping she can get a little bit of closure from that, because it sounds like she’s really hurting right now.
