Ariana Grande explains why her Coachella performance brought back the heartbreak of losing Mac Miller

Cape Town – Ariana Grande struggled with her headline performance at Coachella because it brought back so many memories of Mac Miller.

In a candid interview published on Tuesday in Vogue, Ariana spoke about the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, her breakup with her ex-fiancé Pete Davidson, and more. 

Ariana recalled her Coachella headlining experience to the publication: "The first time I went (to Coachella) was to see Malcolm perform, and it was such an incredible experience. I went the second year as well, and I associate...heavily...it was just kind of a mindfuck, processing how much has happened in such a brief period."

Recently, while on tour, Ariana cried on stage while singing her song, Ghostin' about the late rapper. 

Mac Miller died last year of an overdose.
