Making a guest appearance for Apple Music with Zane Lowe, Grammy-winning artist Ariana Grande opened up about her late ex, Mac Miller.
On Wednesday, the “Thank U, Next” singer recalled the rapper’s love and passion for his craft. “I think that nothing mattered more to him than music, ever,” she said. “And he was the kind of person who woke up and rolled into the studio, tumbled out of bed, into the studio next door. Nothing was more important. Talk about losing track of time and forgetting to eat, remind yourself to take care of yourself and be a person. He was a person who gave literally every single second of his thought and time and life to his music.”
She went on to talk about his discography, saying, “I think that’s so evident in what he’s left us with and just how many incredible and different bodies of work, everything from Blue Slide Park, K.I.D.S., to all the way through Divine Feminine to Swimming to Circles to everything in between. It’s just such a beautiful gift, I think, that he kind of touched the world with. I think the thing he’d want most is for us to just appreciate it and not forget about it.”
Grande and Miller dated for two years before ultimately ending their relationship in 2018. He died later that year.
Since his passing, Grande has paid tribute to him in a number of ways, from reserving an empty seat for him during her Sweetener World Tour show to getting a tattoo with the name of the dog they adopted together.
