Nathan Sykes was officially off the market on Sept. 24, when both he and Ariana took to Twitter to confirm their love. So why exactly is he calling Selena Gomez ‘perfect’?
Nathan Sykes and Ariana Grande have perfect chemistry, in music videos and behind-the-scenes. They’re officially a couple now, so it’s a little strange that he’s calling another girl — namely Selena Gomez “perfect” in an interview, and even admitting that he’s always crushed on her!
Nathan Sykes — Did He Want To Date Selena Gomez?
In an interview with We Love Pop — which was conducted before Nathan and Ariana made their relationship Twitter-official — Nathan was asked about the girls in his life, and asked why he’s so silent about it.
“Now this is why I’m so jealous of Max!” he said of his bandmate Max George. “He follows someone on Twitter, then he is in the tabloids saying he is in a relationship. I started following the Selena Gomez and nothing. Where is my relationship?!”
Naturally, the interviewer followed up with a question about the possibility of a romance between the The Wanted star and Selena.
Nathan Admits: I Always Liked Selena, But Justin Would Kill Me
“To be honest, I always liked Selena, but I really did not want to go that side because Justin would kill me!” Nathan said, referring to Justin Bieber, who he went on tour with along with the band. “I would probably receive a call from [our manager] Scooter telling me to stay away! But she is splendid. She is perfect.”
Now that is hilarious.
Nathan went on to explain that he saw Selena and the Biebs at a Justin Timberlake concert and his “jaw just dropped.”
“I must have looked like a complete idiot,” he told the mag. “My friends were like, ‘Just say hi,’ but I could not even talk to her! . . . But that’s how I am, I’m very, very nervous around girls that I really like. I need to improve my game. To be honest, I’m garbage anyway, I would be a terrible boyfriend.”
Well, we hope not! He and Ariana are perfect together — but do you think she will be mad about the interview, even though it was prior to making their big relationship announcement? Let us know!
