Although most would believe the majority of boy band members probably live up to their ‘bad boy’ reputations, singer-actress Ariana Grande tells a different story. According to ABC News, Grande recently sat down with Cosmopolitan to gush about her romantic first date with ‘The Wanted’ pop star Nathan Sykes.
She revealed that Sykes was quite the chivalrous romantic. “We were going back to his hotel to watch a movie, and he had Ladurée macaroons and sunflowers waiting,” she told Cosmopolitan for the February 2014 issue. “I love Parisian baked goods, and sunflowers are my favorite flower.”
Grande also revealed that the “Glad You Came” singer was highly respectful, making a lauded first impression. “He had taken the DVD player out of the bedroom and into the living room, because he said he didn’t want to take me into the bedroom on the first date.”
While their date went extremely well, it actually leaves some fans confused, as most assumed that she and Sykes had ‘broken up’. According to E! News, earlier this month, Grande was asked by a Florida DJ about the nature of her relationship with Sykes.
She informed the DJ, in so many words, that he was ‘a little behind’ with the latest news when Sykes was referred to as her ‘boyfriend’. However, her evasive answer could have went one of two ways, meaning that the two were actually dating, as opposed to going separate ways. But, nevertheless, it appears the two are indeed dating, and are off to an excellent start.
Although the two enjoyed their romantic date, Grande also expressed her wariness about going public with personal relationships. “Sometimes people get too fixated on what people are going to say,” she says, recalling the backlash she received after posting an Instagram picture of a friendly kiss she received from former tour-mate Justin Bieber. “At the end of the day, you’re in a relationship because you love that person, not because of what other people think.”
Hopefully her reservations have no bearing on the future of their relationship!
