Ariana Grande pays tribute to ex-boyfriend Mac Miller

In the first public statement since he died of a suspected overdose last week, Grande described him as her "dearest friend" and the "kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved".

In the caption of a video, she said she was "so sorry" she hadn't been able to fix or take his pain away.

Miller, real name Malcolm McCormick, was open about his drug abuse.

He was found dead at his home in California. The official cause of death has not yet been announced.

The singer was due perform in memory of those affected by the attack - which took place at her concert.

Scooter Braun said he and the singer met 19 families who had lost loved ones, which was the "hardest two hours of either of our lives".

Ariana suffered from trauma after the attack and questioned whether she could sing her songs ever again, he added.

But she decided to do a tribute concert so the victims didn't "die in vain".

"The terrorist made a mistake... they picked the wrong God damn show," Scooter said of the bombing on 22 May - in which 22 people died.

"Because if they thought we were going to roll over they don't know Ariana and they don't know me."

She adds that people should "call this what it is = terrorism."

Ariana Grande back in top 40

It was the final track Ariana performed on Monday.

The song is being streamed and downloaded after a fan campaign to get the track to the top of the official charts.

The track has climbed from outside the top 200 overnight to number 35 and it's currently outselling Justin Bieber and Liam Payne on iTunes.

However iTunes sales no longer contribute greatly to chart positions, with the top 40 more influenced by listeners' streaming habits.
