ARIANA Grande would “assume the worst” and “blow up” Mac Miller’s friends’ phones with messages of concern when she didn’t hear from the star months before his tragic death, a new book claims.
The “Thank U, Next” singer and the “Swimming” rapper began dating in late 2016 after years of friendship. They would amicably part ways two years later in May 2018 – four months before Mac would be found dead from an accidental overdose aged 26.
The reason for their separation was never outright disclosed by either Mac or Ariana, however, it was hinted that Miller’s years-long struggles with addiction and substance abuse had placed an irrevocable strain on their relationship.
Just over a week after their split, Miller was arrested and charged with drunk driving after he crashed his 2016 Mercedes G-Wagon into a telephone pole near his Brentwood, LA home and fled the scene.
Some of Miller’s fans blamed Ariana for the incident. However, the pop superstar refused to accept the blame, writing in a tweet that she was “not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be.”
“I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety and prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course),” she hit back. “But shaming / blaming women for a man’s inability to keep his s**t together is a very major problem. Let’s please stop doing that.”

Ariana Grande gave 1,000 presents to kids in Manchester who spent Christmas in hospital, it has emerged.
The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital charity has revealed the pop star’s generous gift.
The gifts were given out on children’s wards and new born intensive care units at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, North Manchester General Hospital, Wythenshawe Hospital and Saint Mary’s Hospital.
Each child received two presents.
It’s not the first time Grande, who has maintained close links with the city ever since the terror attack during her Manchester Arena concert in 2017 in which 22 people were killed, has dished out some Christmas cheer.
Last year she donated a £100 Amazon voucher to every child at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and Manchester Royal Infirmary.
Millie Stacey, director of Manchester Foundation Trust Charity, said: “It’s so wonderful that our family of hospitals still hold a special place in Ariana’s heart.
“We were so touched to know she was thinking of all the children and babies spending time in hospital at Christmas.”
I have added more images of her R.E.M. Beauty shoot!
Any Ariana Grande look has a chic, mod feel to it. The singer loves mini skirts, thigh-high boots, and punchy colors—all signatures of the 1960s. Looking at all of her outfits on The Voice last year proves this. However, her latest ensemble, for an R.E.M. Beauty shoot, is one of her best retro moments yet. It’s an ensemble so groovy that it deserves its own Bob Fosse number.
For her shoot, Grande struck a pose in a wave-print bra top and matching opera gloves, both by Fruity Booty. Grande’s white leather Courreges skirt is also very 1960s. The label rose to fame during the decade, after all, thanks to its refreshing modernism and futurism. Her graphic white Loewe sunglasses and Alessandra Rich earrings, meanwhile, lent a glam finish to the kitschy ensemble. She needs to get on stage in this outfit and whip her ponytail around, like that one unforgettable dancer did in Sweet Charity (who also wore opera gloves, might we add).
With this look, Grande proves once again that she was born in the wrong decade. She can’t time-travel (that we know of), that’s okay—that’s what throwback fashion is for!
In late 2021, Netflix finally released its highly anticipated sci-fi drama/satire Don’t Look Up. The film boasts a cast that includes several Hollywood heavy hitters, led by Leonardo DiCaprio (who nearly turned down the role), Jennifer Lawrence, and Meryl Streep.
Not to mention, the cast also includes the likes of Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Tyler Perry, and rising star Timothée Chalamet.
After watching the film, however, many fans have come to agree that the real star of the movie is really singer/actress Ariana Grande.
In Don’t Look Up, Grande plays pop star Riley Bina. She may not have that much screen time in the movie, but the singer/actress leaves quite an impression. And while many have come to praise Grande’s performance in the film, there’s also a great deal of interest in how she ended up getting cast in Don’t Look Up.
In a movie that features several of Hollywood’s A-list actors, did Grande have to audition for her own role?
