It’s true: Ariana Grande and The Wanted‘s Nathan Sykes are dating. Sparks flew after the two collaborated on a song, ‘Almost Is Never Enough,’ for the soundtrack of the movie The Mortal Instruments and now Ariana is confirming the new romance.
But the ‘Baby I’ singer is asking for some privacy right now, saying they are “trying to figure it out.”
“Here’s the thing, the thing about it is that we’re both twenty years old and we’re trying to figure it out, and we’re in the public eye so it’s like, it’s hard for us to live our lives and do what we’re doing when we don’t even, you know what I mean?” Ariana said on the Mojo in the Morning‘s radio show.
“We’re not ready to answer the question yet.”
But the 20-year-old isn’t holding back with her feelings about Nathan‘s talent. “Nathan just sang the hell out of it. I thought it was Brian McKnight. I’m like ‘Who is this?’” she gushed after they recorded their song together. “Honestly I wasn’t expecting it. I didn’t know he had that in him.”
“I saw him perform live on one of the radio shows that we were at together and I was like, ‘Damn he can sing.’ This song I think will pleasantly surprise a lot of people,” she continued.
