Avril Lavigne is coming back in a big way. The Canadian singer hasn’t released music in 5 years and she announced her new single, “Head Above Water” next week.
She writes: “Thank you for waiting so patiently as I fought through and still continue to fight, the battle of my lifetime. The first song I am choosing to release is called ‘Head Above Water.’ It is also the first song I wrote from my bed during one of the scariest moments of my life. I had accepted death and could feel my body shutting down. I felt like I was drowning. Like I was going under water and I just needed to come up for air. Like I was in a river being pulled in a current. Unable to breathe. Praying to God for Him to help me just keep my head above the water. To help me see through the stormy weather. I grew closer to Him. My mother held me. In her arms, I wrote the first song that I am releasing to tell my story.”z
Adding: “To be honest, part of me doesn’t want to talk about being sick because I want it to all be behind me, but I know I have to.”
Are you excited to have music from Avril Lavigne?
Last week, Mac Miller was found dead in his home due to an apparent overdose.
Today, TMZ.com is reporting that Mac Miller’s cause of death is still an official mystery. An LA Doctor has deferred the official cause of death until the
The Coroner is deferring the cause of death so the family can begin planning Miller’s funeral.
Rapper Mac Miller died on Friday at the age of 26 of a drug overdose. Since then, the internet has been mourning the loss of Miller while others on the internet have taken to social media to begin to harass and blame the rapper’s ex-girlfriend, Ariana Grande.
I am not going to publish any of the hate comments made by fans toward Grande as they do not deserve the publicity. However, I do want to address this situation as it is a dangerous response to the death of Miller.
Ariana Grande and Mac Miller dated for a good while. When I was reporting on Miller’s death, I joking said that Miller’s claim to fame was his rap in Grande’s song “The Way” and then ultimately the two began to date. Not sure on the timeline there, but that’s my memory of their relationship.
Grande ultimately decided to break off their relationship citing Miller’s substance abuse as a key reason for the break. Fast forward to a few months ago, Grande is now engaged to Pete Davidson, whom she has only dated for a few months.
Many of Millers fans blame Grande’s quick engagement to Davidson has the reason Miller took a turn for the worse and eventually overdosed on drugs. These same fans have now began to harass Grande to the point that she has disabled comments on her Instagram account.
So, Who’s To Blame?
Mac Miller is to blame for Mac Miller’s death. The idea that there is someone else who is directly responsible for Miller’s death is beyond stupid. Unless it comes out that someone secretly drugged Miller into an overdose, Miller is ultimately responsible for his own actions.
Could the break up with Grande and then her quick engagement have been a factor into Miller continuing his drug use? It’s possible. It’s possible that drugs was the only way Miller could have coped with the breakup of Grande, but it’s still Miller’s responsibility to either find a healthy coping method or seek help.
Blaming Ariana Grande is not helping anyone, including Miller’s friends and family during this difficult time. If anything, you are causing Granda a level of grief that is not only uncalled for buy straight up mean.
Maren Morris said it best.
Leave Ariana Grande Alone!
Ariana Grande is mourning the death of someone she loved. Maybe even someone she still loves. Just because she moved onto a new relationship doesn’t mean that she didn’t still care for Miller.
It’s okay for your to mourn Miller’s death – no one is telling you not to. Mourn by sharing your favorite lyrics, videos, pictures and moments of Miller’s life and career. Remember the good times of his life, not the parts that are hard for you and for Grande.
Blaming, harassing, and accusing Grande is dangerous. Don’t do that. Don’t make anyone feel worse than they already do. You don’t know a person’s limit on the amount of grief they can handle.
Put yourself in Grande’s shoes. She is a very young woman who has a few songs that will remind her of Miller. Can you imagine having to go on tour and have people want to hear you sing a song that features an ex-boyfriend that is no longer alive?
Please, let Ariana Grande mourn on her own. Don’t harass her.
