Big Sean, 26, and Ariana Grande, 21, were first spotted holding hands during this year’s VMA awards. Mere speculations—with good reason—caused the world to believe Big Sean’s breakup with Glee star Naya Rivera then became a thing of the past.
Just a few months after the spotting, the “Problem” singer finally admitted in an interview with The Telegraph that her and Big Sean were dating. When asked by the publication if they were a couple, she answered, “Yes.” Ariana continued by talking up her new beau.
“He is one of the most amazing men in the whole world, and that includes my grandfather and my brother. I think the world of him, and he’s an amazing person. That’s kind of all there is to it.”
While on his recent press runs for Dark Sky Paradise Sean opened up about his new relationship. In an interview with The FADER he spoke about his and Grande’s song together, “Research,” which lives on his new album.
It was very easy. I like this collab because even though it’s not about our situation directly, she stepped in. She put our situation aside and just really stuck to the concept of the song and was down with it. It’s a real concept—it just doesn’t apply to us. So I appreciate her being an artist about it.
Grande, who though a much younger choice in partner than Rivera, is actually good for the Detroit rapper. After all she’s equally established and only seeming to move upwards from here. I say “why not?” Besides, they look adorable together and with Naya out the picture, Big Sean’s got ‘one less problem’ anyway…
While many have looked at the stemming relationship between the two as “odd” and almost rightfully so, we’ve come up a few reasons why it’s not odd at all. In fact, here are six reasons we believe Big Sean is dating Grande.
