Even though Ariana Grande has been flaunting her romance with Mac Miller on Snapchat, she wasn’t quite ready to talk about it on live television. Watch the singer totally choke up when asked about her relationship at the VMAs here!
Ariana Grande, 23, showed up to the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards solo on Aug. 28, and obviously, fans were immediately concerned about why her new man, Mac Miller, 24, didn’t walk the carpet with her. “It’s okay to be alone even when you have a boo!” the 23-year-old explained during a red carpet interview.
But things got really awkward from there when the rapper’s name was specifically mentioned — Ari had NO idea what to say. She was clearly flustered and appeared beyond uncomfortable, smoothing her hair and just repeating the word “Cool” to avoid the question about their romance. Eek!
Luckily, the interviewer quickly changed the subject, and rather than talking about her love life, the singer got to gush about being so excited for performances from Rihanna, Beyonce and more at the show. Meanwhile, she’s also set to take the stage, and will be singing with Nicki Minaj during the highly-anticipated ceremony. So exciting!
Ari looked absolutely stunning at the show, showing off her amazing abs in a two-piece black ensemble and her hair pulled back into a signature ponytail with her bangs on full display. Meanwhile, she’s also nominated for five awards at the show: Best Female Video, Best Collaboration, Best Pop Video, Best Cinematography and Best Editing. Something tells us this is going to be a GOOD night for Ariana — even if she is doing the whole thing without her man by her side!
