Is Mac Miller dating Ariana Grande? The rapper and Nickelodeon star sparked rumors of romance when they collaborated on her single The Way and even kissed in the video. But, Miller denied any romantic intentions with the hot singer and actress.
"That's the homey,” Miller told MTV News about Grande. “She's got a boyfriend and everything.”
“Obviously, that [kiss] made everyone talk. I didn't even know that was going to happen and then we were shooting and the director was like 'This should happen' and I'm like 'Alright.' When I went back to my old school, elementary, middle school, the other day when I was in Pittsburgh, and everyone was freaking out like 'You kissed Ariana Grande.' I was like 'Yeah, you know how I do,' " Miller said joking to MTV.
Miller’s song with Grande The Way is the first single off Grande’s highly anticipated debut album. The singer, most recognized for her acting work on Nickelodeon’s Victorious, certainly has Miller’s stamp of approval.
"Well she's a very, very talented singer, like she can sing incredibly,” Miller said. “And, that's awesome and she's a great person.”
Miller couldn’t say enough nice things about the 19-year-old. “She's one of the nicest just people I've ever met in my life. But, you know, that song like we did work on the studio, like other work, that was like as far as the experience was more of an experience, like her coming to my cave, the sanctuary, the sacred studio, and making the song from scratch. After we did that and those were the really awesome experiences, this song was one she had played me. So it's kind of like the music that we made was why that happened. That was the chemistry and that's where the experience happened and that's why it made sense to do that song."
Grande told Billboard how happy (and surprised) she was at the success of The Way. "I can't even express how happy I am, how grateful I am, to be taken seriously as an artist," Grande said. "I'm doing it for my fans, and now this huge thing has come from it and it's exciting. I'm very happy."
Grande’s debut album is due out later this year and she said that it’s "throwback R&B, soulful, but poppy" and that it "makes you happy" and "makes you wanna move.” We can’t wait!
Grande also just signed with Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun. So we can only expect great things to continue for the hot singer.
