Ariana Grande Awkwardly Dodges Questions About Big Sean on Today (VIDEO)
Anyone who tuned in for the VMAs 2014 could tell that there’s a little more than a friendship between pint-sized diva Ariana Grande and her frequent collaborator Big Sean. The rapper — and Naya Rivera’s ex-fiance — was pictured holding Ariana’s hand backstage at the awards show, seemingly confirming their rumored romance. However, that doesn’t mean the “Problem” songstress is ready to talk about her private life anytime soon…
Ari was on TODAY on August 29 to promote her sophomore album My Everything — currently sitting at #1 on the Billboard Charts — and, of course, the subject of her love life came up. Host Matt Lauer made a respectable attempt at getting the 21-year-old to open up, but he sadly did not succeed.
After Matt asked if “anyone” had captured Ariana’s attention in Hollywood, the “Bang Bang” singer coyly turned the attention back to her interviewer saying, “Has anyone captured your attention?” Awkwardly, yes, someone has captured Matt’s attention — his wife of 15 years!
That certainly left Ariana stumped, though she did eventually reply with, “Oh, my goodness! Y'all are putting me on the spot. I'm happy.” Hmm.
Was that an admission? We’re not sure, but seems like someone is making her smile these days. While we’re just going to have to wait for these two to come out publicly, at least we can witness the insane chemistry in their new duet, “Best Mistake.” Just watch this video and try to tell us there’s not something there…
