Guess it’s true: No one can resist the charms of Justin Bieber. Ariana Grande is opening for the Biebs on a few nights of his Believe tour, and after a show on Wednesday (August 7) the singer tweeted that her grandmother is smitten. “My grandmother is now in love with @justinbieber,” Ariana tweeted.
Never one to resist putting a female under his spell, Justin tweeted back at Ariana with a charming message of his own. “@ArianaGrande tell grandma I said whatup,” he wrote. “Lol. Welcome to the tour…by the way the new song with @BigSean I like it.”
In a recent interview Ariana talked about preparing to open for Justin. “I’m rehearsing a lot,” she told MTV. “I’m working out a lot, trying to get my lungs, my breath support stronger. I’m training myself to work with in-ear [monitors], which is new for me because I’ve never worked with in-ears.”
After her shows with Justin, the 20-year-old will kick off her own headlining tour that starts on August 13 and goes through August 31. “I’m really excited about it. Just [getting ready with] lots of training and vocal health stuff and music talk and deciding what parts my backup singers are gonna sing,” she said.
