“I think that nothing mattered more to him than music, ever,” Grande said. “And he was the kind of person who woke up and rolled into the studio, tumbled out of bed, into the studio next door. Nothing was more important. Talk about losing track of time and forgetting to eat, remind yourself to take care of yourself and be a person. He was a person who gave literally every single second of his thought and time and life to his music.”
Grande’s been through a lot of trauma for someone so young and in the public eye. From the horrific events at her Manchester concert in 2017 to Miller passing away in late 2018, the Grande has had a rough run.
In spite of that, she focused on the legacy that Miller leaves behind and how it demonstrates his range and passion. “I think that's so evident in what he's left us with and just how many incredible and different bodies of work, everything from Blue Slide Park, K.I.D.S., to all the way through Divine Feminine to Swimming to Circles to everything in between. It's just such a beautiful gift, I think, that he kind of touched the world with. I think the thing he'd want most is for us to just appreciate it and not forget about it.”
Grande has commemorated Miller's memory in a number of ways since his passing. One gesture included getting a tattoo with the name of the dog they adopted. She's also kept an empty seat for him on her Sweetener World Tour.
As to what else she's thinking about in quarantine, Grande has recently been tapped by fans as a top pick to play Meg in the live-action remake of Disney's Hercules. There's also rumours that she'll be in the next season of Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story, and is appearing on Lady Gaga's forthcoming album Chromatica.
Truly a gal who is booked n busy!
