Pop songstress Ariana Grande shared a special gift for fans of the late Mac Miller on Monday (October 22) with an old video of the Swimming rapper done up handsomely in a tuxedo as he prepared for the 2017 Oscars.
In the video, he’s standing beside Ariana’s mom, Joan, and grandmother, Nonna, as he peeks back at the camera with the hearty smile all Mac fans have come to miss in the wake of his passing. “I should’ve worn that for the night,” the 26-year-old said while staring up at the flat screen TV showing Elton John’s interview. His ensemble may strike Arianators and Mac fans with familiarity from that evening when the former lovebirds’ attended Madonna’s 2018 Oscars afterparty. For others, the video is striking them with grief after getting a glimpse of one of Mac’s most cherished moments as the hip-hop world continues to remember the gifted hip-hop star and beloved friend to all.
See one of Ariana’s favorite Mac memories that she was gracious enough to share with fans and how the internet’s coping with it below.
