Here’s Why People Are Convinced That Ariana Subtly Honored Mac Miller With Her New Makeup Line



The apparent tribute comes a year after Ariana honored Mac with an emotional performance of their hit song “The Way” during her virtual Fortnite concert.

Ariana and Mac, whose real name was Malcolm McCormick, began dating in 2016, three years after they first collaborated on their hit song, “The Way.”

They ended up parting ways in May 2018, with Ariana revealing that she spent “years” trying to “support his sobriety,” but to no avail. However, she maintained that Mac remained one of her “best friends in the whole world and favorite people on the planet.”

“I respect and adore him endlessly, and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times, regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us!” she wrote on Instagram, adding, “Unconditional love is not selfish. It is wanting the best for that person even if at the moment, it’s not you.”

In September 2018, Mac died of a drug overdose. In April this year, Ryan Michael Reavis was sentenced to more than 10 years in prison for supplying the dealer who sold Mac the drugs. Last year, Reavis pleaded guilty to a single count of distribution of fentanyl.

“i adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will,” Ariana wrote in an Instagram tribute after Mac’s death. “i can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. i really can’t wrap my head around it.”

“we talked about this,” she wrote. “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.”

Ariana was — and still is — very vocal about how she’s coped with Mac’s death. “By no means was what we had perfect, but, like, fuck. He was the best person ever, and he didn’t deserve the demons he had,” she told Vogue nearly a year after his death. “I was the glue for such a long time, and I found myself becoming… less and less sticky. The pieces just started to float away.”

Apart from being vocal about the late rapper, Ariana — who is now married to real estate agent Dalton Gomez — has made references to Mac time and again throughout her projects.

Last year, she paid tribute to Mac during her virtual Fortnite concert. After performing a bunch of her hit songs, like “7 Rings,” “Positions,” and “R.E.M.,” Ariana sang her and Mac’s famous collaborative hit “The Way,” while her avatar climbed a stairway to heaven.

Viewers interpreted this as a sweet tribute to the late rapper and were left emotional by the visual metaphor.

And now, fans are convinced that Ariana has paid tribute to Mac once again — this time with her new makeup collection.

The line is called “Chapter 4: Out of Body Collection” and consists of “skincare-infused makeup with formulas that are supercharged and super beneficial for skin,” according to the R.E.M. Beauty website.

While flaunting the essential drip lip oil, one of the sold-out products, TikTok user @kaylie_vazquez pointed out that a particular shade is called “Pickin Petals” — which is a direct quote from Mac’s lyrics on “The Way.”

In the track, Mac raps: “I’m thinking ’bout her every second, every hour / Do my singing in the shower / Picking petals off the flowers like / Do she love me, do she love me not?”

Referring to the lyrics, the TikTok user wrote: “When you get the r.e.m. beauty lip oil ‘pickin petals’ and realize ari keeps dropping us little reminders of mac.”

“and his favorite song from her album was R.E.M.,” another user commented, referring to her 2018 album, Sweetener, which features the song “R.E.M.”

Others pointed out that the name of the beauty collection appears to make reference to Mac more broadly, with several noting that Mac has a song of his own called “REMember.”

“Mac has a song before Ariana’s came out also called REMember with REM capitalized, I believe also a record label called REM,” one person commented.

Another theorized, “when u say R.E.M beauty out loud, it sounds like Ari M. beauty and Mac’s last name was Miller so kinda becomes Ari Miller.”

All in all, fans were touched by the apparent heartfelt tribute and left kind words in honor of Mac’s legacy.

“Forever missing Mac. I’m happy knowing she’s lowkey but high key carrying him with her, with us. This is special,” one person wrote. “this made me cry a lil,” another said.

Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell might be thousands of miles apart this Christmas, but they are still very much on each other’s minds.

LATEST: Why Dianne Buswell and Joe Sugg are celebrating Christmas apart

Whilst gushing about his stay “at the amazing Court Farm”, a lovingly restored 16th Century farmhouse in Somerset, Joe sent Dianne a décor hint, revealing: “I kinda want our house to look like this!

Joe has travelled to Somerset to see family and friends

The gorgeous bedroom, as shown in a photo posted on his Instagram Stories, boasts a superking bed under a vintage chandelier, with an authentic barn door which opens onto a bathroom with both a huge walk-in shower and contemporary roll top bath.

Joe also praised the log burner, keeping him warm during his stay. “You cannot beat a good log burner this time of year,” he wrote.

The couple fell in love whilst taking part on Strictly Come Dancing

The theme would no doubt work well in Joe and Dianne’s country home in Sussex. The couple met on Strictly in 2018 and swapped their London flat for their first home together complete with a beautiful garden boasting uninterrupted country views.

Joe went on to reveal to his followers that he was visiting Lacock, a village in the county of Wiltshire.

“Forever grateful for this beautiful village where I grew up,” he said.

He then visited The Lacock Bakery and showed its gorgeous window display, which featured a copy of his book, Grow: How Nature Can Restore Balance in a Busy World.

“I used to go to this bakery as a toddler in my pushchair and now look! I left a special message in this book,” he remarked.

Hannah Hargrave

ABC star David Muir has long kept fans guessing about his personal life, refusing to share details online or across social media sites like many of his colleagues. But fans do know that David is still on the market and he’s not married, although it remains unclear if he is even dating.

Exclusive: Amy Robach’s ‘deceptive’ interview with Andrew Shue and T.J. Holmes revealed

In fact, as the video below explains, despite being connected to several other high profile TV personalities, there’s only one certain someone who does take up David’s time…

Despite numerous reports of romance for the World News Tonight anchor, David has always refused to publicly address his love life, but has been vocal about a number of leading ladies who he holds dear to his heart.

Kelly Ripa is one of those special people, so much so that the Live with Kelly and Ryan star paid a heartfelt tribute to David in her book, Live Wire.

An extract from the book – which is released on 27 September – was posted on Kelly’s Instagram Stories over the weekend, and the message is included on a page of acknowledgements.

It read: “To David Muir, you are the backbone and moral compass I need sometimes.”

Kelly and David have been close friends for years

His fellow ABC star, Amy Robach, is also a firm favorite of David’s and they have been known to spend time together both on and off-screen.

His sister, Rebecca, is close with David and he calls his many nieces and nephews his “squad,” and says he’s incredibly proud of all of them.

At home, it’s his beloved gun dog, Axel, who has his heart, as he regularly shares adorable photos with the pup, who he is clearly besotted with. 

That’s not to say he hasn’t had his fair share of marriage proposals though! Not a day goes by when he isn’t flooded with compliments from his adoring fans on social media. 

But alas, the dedicated journalist is practically married to his job, leaving little time for love!

“Such a tremendous loss of an amazing talent that was able to capture and create a sound like no other,” replied one. A second wrote: “Rest in Peace. Love the music you shared with us. Prayers for his family.”

A third shared their condolences while also wishing Al a speedy recovery, writing: “Sad news – wonderful legacy. I hope you are continuing to feel better and stronger. @todayshow is not the same without you.”

It’s been a particularly hard time for Al over the past few weeks, as not only has he been recovering after having blood clots on his lungs, but he also faced the devastating news that his sister Patricia had passed away shortly after he was discharged from hospital.

The TV star, who has been a part of Today for over 25 years, was admitted to the hospital shortly after Thanksgiving due to blood clots and remained hospitalized for over two weeks.

Al, who has taken an absence from the show ever since, gave an update to viewers from home last week. “It has been a tough slog. I’m not going to lie. It has been the hardest one yet and I’ve had my share of surgeries.

He continued: “I have a lot of things and people to be thankful for. It gives you a profound sense of gratitude for this outpouring of prayers and thanks.”
