Ariana Grande is still coping with the loss of her ex boyfriend, Mac Miller, and she shared a heartbreaking tweet about him on Tuesday afternoon. A fan sent the “God Is A Woman” singer a recorded video from one of Mac’s old Instagram Lives that took place on Aug. 9, 2018; in which he can be heard listening to the 25-year-old’s song “R.E.M.” off of her Sweetener album.
“Hey @ArianaGrande here’s a video of @MacMiller listening to R.E.M during his Instagram live from August 9th before it was released. We had to stan the best song from Sweetener!” the fan wrote. But Ariana’s response was heart-rending. “He is supposed to be here,” she replied to the emotional video.

She sent out two other tweets to this same fan, writing, “his voice and laugh” and “thank u for finding this.” A few days ago, the singer addressed her past relationship with Mac, along with her other exes Big Sean, Pete Davison, and Ricky Alvarez in her new single “thank u, next.”
“Thought I’d end up with Sean / But he wasn’t a match / Wrote some songs about Ricky / Now I listen and laugh /Even almost got married / And for Pete, I’m so thankful / Wish I could say, ‘Thank you’ to Malcolm / ‘Cause he was an angel,” the lyrics to the song read.
Ricky is the only one to speak out about the song, taking to his Instagram Story to say that he has “nothing but gratitude” and that the songs he inspired are “fire,” which Ari agreed with by reposting it on her story and adding, “Oh for sure.” She also included the moon and bunny emoji, symbolizing the songs that are about Ricky from her Dangerous Woman album.
Mac and Ariana dated for two years before breaking up in May 2018. “I was in love with somebody. We were together for two years. We worked through good times, bad times, stress, and everything else. And then it came to an end and we both moved on. And it’s that simple,” Mac told Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 about his relationship with the singer. “It’s just a part of something that’s going to continue to help make me who I am. It’s all positive energy. I am happy for her in moving forward with her life, just as I’m sure she is with me.”
Mac Miller passed away from an overdose on Sept. 7, 2018 at the age of 26.
