Pop star Ariana Grande has publicly confirmed her relationship with hip hop artist Big Sean for the first time. In an exclusive interview with the Telegraph Magazine, Grande was asked if it’s true that she is dating Sean Anderson, ASKA Big Sean. ‘Yes,’ replied the 21-year-old. ‘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.’
The pair have been linked since the 26-year-old Anderson contributed to Grande’s second album My Everything. He is a featured artist on album track Best Mistake and stars as the uncredited ‘whisperer’ on the pop star’s breakthrough single Problem. Grande recently became the first female solo artist in the United States to achieve two number one albums within 12 months since 2010 and made UK chart history in July when Problem became the first song to reach number one single based on sales and streaming. Anderson, from Detroit, Michigan, has recorded two studio albums as Big Sean and was engaged to Glee actress and singer Naya Rivera until April of this year.
Elsewhere in the interview, the former Nickelodeon child star combats recent tabloid reports painting her as a precocious ‘diva’, defends controversrial contemporary (and Beverly Hill next-door neighbour) Miley Cyrus and details her love for ‘all things sci-fi and scary’.
The full interview with Grande will be available online on Tuesday 14 October and she appears on the Telegraph Magazine’s cover the following Saturday.
