Relationships come and go, but we hope our new OTP becomes a reality as Ariana Grande opens up about the Justin Bieber kiss from earlier this month.
The kiss, which took place backstage in Tampa, took Ariana completely by surprise. Ariana told MTV they planned to take a simple selfie after #JustinAndArianaSelfie became a trending topic on Twitter.
“[Justin] was like ‘Yo, let’s take a picture.’ And so I took out my phone and I went like this and I was just smiling and he kissed me on the cheek. And I didn’t know what to do,” she said. “I just walked out of the room. I got shy. And then Scooter [Braun] came after to me and said, ‘Justin says you have to post that picture.’ And I said, ‘I will not.’ And he was like ‘he says you have to post that picture.’ And I was like I can’t do that because I don’t want the drama that’s going to come with that.”
Drama being amount of hate she later would receive from fans. But it was Bieber’s encouraging tweet that convinced her to do it: “@ArianaGrande post that pic and tell your grandma she is a cutie.”
When she did upload it, she captioned the photo as, “@justinbieber you’re crazy and nonna says thank you, she loves you.” Due to some not-so-friendly tweets, she had to send out a message later on telling everyone to calm down: “Everyone, girls are allowed to be friends with guys. I’m a lady. Chill out.”
Knowing that these two are more or less single, do you think they should start dating? Or do you have another person in mind that would be perfect for Ariana? Perhaps her “Never Is Not Enough” collborator, Nathan Sykes from The Wanted? Tweet your thoughts to us at @ANDPOP!
