Ariana Grande and her hot backup dancer (and possible new boyfriend) Ricky Alvarez are growing closer by the day and while she has yet to publicly confirm their relationship status, she hinted that he inspired one of her romantic songs on her new album in a recent interview!
Aww — this is so cute! Ariana Grande, 22, is playing coy about her romance with Rickey Alvarez, 23, but we are putting together all of the puzzle pieces to discover more about this hot, new potential couple! A month ago in June, Ariana did an interview with Capital FM where she flat-out said she’s seeing someone new and proceeded to talk about the way’s he’s inspired her new music — was she talking about Ricky?! See exactly what she said!
During her June interview with the radio show, Ariana confirmed she is dating someone new and she referred to him as “this boy” when talking about him. She said that “this boy” was the inspiration behind one of her songs on her new album “Moonlight!”
“It’s about this very cute night we had together,” she said. “I have a playlist of 12 songs already. I plan on writing a lot more as soon as I get home. It’s the most personal music I’ve ever written.” A month after this interview, Ariana’s intimate relationship with Ricky was made public — so, she had to have been talking about him, right?!
In case you missed it, Ariana and Ricky were spotting kissing on July 4! Up until then, fans speculated about their relationship based on their on-stage flirting, but now, we KNOW they are totally into each other! The video, which you can watch HERE, shows Ariana and Ricky at a donut shop fooling around, licking some counter-top donuts and locking lips!
