Almost a year after Mac Miller died of a tragic drug overdose in November 2018, Ariana Grande reveals to Vogue how she dealt (and is still dealing with) her loss.
Though Ari has briefly mentioned recovering from her trauma and PTSD since Mac’s death, in Vogue‘s August cover story that just dropped this morning, she opens up about the details of grieving the death of her friend and ex-boyfriend.
She tells Vogue that after Mac died, she immersed herself in her music (she released Thank U, Next just a few months after his passing). “But if I’m completely honest, I don’t remember those months of my life because I was (a) so drunk and (b) so sad,” she said. “I don’t really remember how it started or how it finished, or how all of a sudden there were 10 songs on the board.”
She also addresses the famous tweet where she clapped back at a troll who blamed Ari for Mac’s death.

Sam Smith has an announcement to make:
Tegan and Sara have announced a new record called Hey, I’m Just Like You. The album, which is out September 27 via Sire, features re-recorded versions of songs that the duo initially wrote in high school. Watch a trailer for the project below.
“While working on our memoir, we discovered lost cassette tapes that had been unheard for over 20 years,” Tegan Quin said in a press release. “They contained dozens of our first songs, written between the ages of 15 and 17…. We immediately recognized the songs as an essential part of our high school story.”
Sara Quin added, “With only minor tweaks to lyrics and structure, we tried to remain true to the original essence of each song.”
