“Dangerous Woman” singer Ariana Grande told off television personality Ryan Seacrest Wednesday during an interview on his radio show, “On Air with Ryan Seacrest.” The conversation took a turn when Seacrest brought up Grande’s new love interest, Mac Miller.
Grande, 23, seemingly confirmed their relationship when she posted a picture of her hugging him on Instagram last week. When Seacrest asked her to verify this, she snapped at him.
“If I post something, that's what I'm willing to share at that moment," she said. “That doesn't mean then you, Ryan Seacrest, with millions of listeners are entitled to more information.”
Grande refused to answer the question about Miller, 24. “It's like, ‘Good morning, ‘On Air With Ryan Seacrest.' It’s too early for this kind of tea. It’s too early, man,” she said.
Seacrest then appeared to get annoyed. “That's what we do. If you post something — even in my life — if I post something, it becomes something,” the host explained.
Her attitude might have taken Seacrest by surprise, especially since she vaguely talked about Miller with Ellen DeGeneres. “This is so crazy! I've never had the relationship talk on a show before. … No pressure,” she said on the talk show Tuesday.
The picture that got everyone talking is a black-and-white photo of Miller hugging Grande on the floor. She captioned the photo, “Baabyyy.” The post has sine garnered nearly 100,000 likes from her 84.1 million followers.
While thousands of fans liked the photo, not everyone was pleased with her diva behavior on Seacrest’s show. Some said she sounded like a “rude, immature girl.”
The radio show isn’t the first time Grande has faced criticism. She was slammed after she was caught licking a doughnut at a bakery on the Fourth of July last year and then saying that she hated Americans. Grande soon released a statement where she apologized for doughnut-gate.
