This Grammys show, Mac Miller was posthumerously nominated for the Best Rap Album of the Year award. 

Those in charge of the guest list invited Mac's mother along to see her spn's work honoured with a nomination, following his death last September from an accidental drug overdose, aged 26. 

Mac's mum, Karen Meyers, attended the awards show with actress Cazzie David, who was once in a relationship with comedian Pete Davidson.

Cazzie took to Instagram to share a picture of Karen looking absolutely regal in a chic black pantsuit with split cuff blazer sleeves. 

While some may think that the ex-girlfriend of her son's ex-girlfriend's former fiance (that took us a minute to get our heads around too) is an unusual choice of date to the Grammys, apparently Cazzie and Karen have been acquainted for a while. 

Cazzie attend the celebration of life concert for Mac in 2018, following his passing. 

'It's still a relatively new friendship, and primarily limited to social media, but Cazzie and Karen think very highly of each other,'a source previously told E! News.


A post shared by @couplestwinning on

'Cazzie reached out to Karen with her condolences after Mac died and since then she and Karen have been exchanging messages.'

Karen and Cazzie were together ahead of the Grammys, judging by her Instagram snap, but were not photographed together at the event. 

Ahead of the Grammys, Karen shared a quote from her son via Instagram. 

The quote reads: 'I'm gonna make music, and I'm gonna capture every aspect of being a human being. That's really all I'm trying to do.' 

Mac Miller's final album, Swimming, did not win the award in it's category. 


Irish Water Safety has issued an appeal for the August bank holiday to prevent drowning.

The summer month is the most popular for open water swimming.

However, this year alone 49 people have lost their lives due to drowning.

Irish Water Safety has advised the public to reduce the risk of drowning by swimming at lifeguarded waterways and within your depth.


This has been the busiest bathing season in living memory, says the water organisation.

Lifeguards have saved 149 people since June 1.

Another 1,189 people received First Aid and 113 children were reunited with their parents.

Irish Water Safety warns that drowning occurs quickly and silently.


Eighty percent of incidents happen in the victim's own county, with alcohol factoring into one-third of the fatal cases.

Their statistics also show that from 109 drownings that happened last year, 84 were male and 25 were female.

According to the water organisation, this is because "males overestimate their skills and competencies and underestimate the risk and danger."


The bank holiday is predicted to be dry and sunny.

Here is how you can enjoy the water safely and prevent drowning, according to Irish Water Safety:

Always swim at lifeguarded waterways, which are listed here.  

Swim only within your depth, stay within your depth.


Swim with others in areas that are traditionally recognised as safe. Check to see if a Ringbuoy is present.

Never use inflatable toys in open water or swim out after anything drifting.

When angling or boating: Wear a Lifejacket. Find out what device suits your needs here

Always supervise children at all times near water, this is crucially important as thirty aged fourteen and under drowned in a decade says the Water body.


The advice given if you see someone in trouble is to shout to the casualty and encourage them to shore. This may orientate them just enough.

Reach out with a long object such as a branch or a piece of clothing but do not enter the water yourself.

Additionally, throw a Ringbuoy or any floating object and call 112 for the coast guard.

Not too long ago, the internet went crazy for mermaid blankets which let you get your chill on while channelling your inner Ariel, but it looks like things have officially gone up a notch.

Progressing from pro-level flake to pro-level fitness, innumerable women are participating in swimming sessions which lets them realise their secret childhood dream.

That’s right gals; it’s now acceptable to don a mermaid tail and slither into a pool all in the name of health and well-being.

While we all know that standard swimming in an incredible form of cardio exercise, this version actually ticks various other boxes.

By moving your body in unison under the water, you automatically engage muscles which can often go ignored during standard work-out sessions in the local gym.

It seems legs, bums and tums are really put through the ringer as you plot your revenge against that oul wench Ursula.

Ladies? We're sold.
