Ariana Grande shared uplifting words on both Twitter and Instagram on Saturday as she continues to mourn her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller.
On Instagram, the “No Tears Left to Cry” singer wrote the same words as well as “one day at a time” with a background image of a cloudy sky. Grande has slowly been breaking her silence after Miller died of an apparent overdose on Sept. 7. One day after his death, she uploaded a black-and-white picture of Miller looking up at the camera. She didn’t include a caption.
One week later, the “God Is a Woman” vocalist shared a video of the “What’s the Use?” rapper telling a story and laughing at her. In her caption, Grande expressed her gratitude and love for Miller as well as some of her own regrets. “i adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will,” she wrote. “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.”
Ariana Grande and Mac Miller broke up in May after two years of dating.
Ariana Grande and her fiancé Pete Davidson have been taking time away from the spotlight since Miller’s death. The two of them skipped out on the 2018 Emmys in order to “take time to heal.” In a statement to E! News, Grande’s team explained why she opted out of the awards show. “Given the events of the past couple of years, Ariana is going to take some much needed time to heal and mend. She will be staying close to home and using this period to spend time with her loved ones and work on new music without deadline. She thanks her fans for their understanding,” they said.
That weekend, she and Davidson remained in New York where the two of them adopted a teacup pig named Piggy Smalls. Davidson even has a tattoo of the animal to prove it.
On Tuesday, Grande and some friends shared coffee and smiles as they got stuck in a torrential downpour without an umbrella in New York.
