Over the past few months, Ariana has kept Miller’s memory alive with multiple social media posts.
While Grande’s tributes to Miller have mostly been photographs or brief videos, she honored him and others in her recent hit song “Thank U, Next” — calling him “an angel” — and also posted an emotional note to him in September, which reads: “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.” (Variety)
This past Thanksgiving, Grande shared a throwback pic of herself alongside Miller.

In November, Grande remembered Miller’s life and shared her disbelief in his death.
On Tuesday, a fan sent Grande a recorded video from Miller’s Instagram Live on Aug. 9, in which he can be heard listening to Grande’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,” the fan tweeted along with the video. “We had to stan the best song from Sweetener!” After watching, Grande replied, “his voice and laugh. he is supposed to be here. thank u for finding this.” (E!
