Although the beauty mogul hasn’t publicly commented on whether or not her lip oil is an homage to Mac, she has honored him in the past. Many of her tracks off of her last two albums, Thank U, Next and Positions, include mentions of their relationship, which came to an end in early 2018.
In 2019, the “Just Like Magic” singer told Vogue how the loss of her ex-boyfriend was “all-consuming.”
“I’m a person who’s been through a lot and doesn’t know what to say about any of it to myself, let alone the world,” she said. “I see myself onstage as this perfectly polished, great-at-my-job entertainer, and then in situations like this, I’m just this little basket-case puddle of figuring it out…I have to be the luckiest girl in the world, and the unluckiest, for sure.”
She added, “I’m walking this fine line between healing myself and not letting the things that I’ve gone through be picked at before I’m ready, and also celebrating the beautiful things that have happened in my life and not feeling scared that they’ll be taken away from me because trauma tells me that they will be, you know what I mean?”
