On Wednesday, singer Ariana Grande was not too thrilled with radio personality Ryan Seacrest, who questioned her about her relationship with boyfriend Mac Miller.
After dropping by "On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” Grande was asked about her recent Instagram pic with Mac, which seemingly confirmed they were an item. She said, "Is that what I did? Is that what Instagram means to you now? Okay, world, let's go.”
After some back and forth between Ryan and Ariana, she commented, “It's too early for this kind of tea. It's too early man... If I post something that's what I'm willing to share at the moment. But it doesn't mean that you Ryan Seacrest with millions of listeners are entitled to more information.”
Grande was criticized by some of the listeners, who labeled her "rude.” Read their tweets below.
I get Ariana wants to keep her relationship with Mac private but there's a difference between shutting down rumours and just being rude 👀— x (@lovxtobutera) September 15, 2016
Ariana was so rude to Ryan Seacrest I wanted to rip my eardrums out.— LC (@LCal29) September 15, 2016
she could've just said she didnt want to talk about her personal life instead of being rude, i like ariana but that was unnecessary— chance the pepper (@texaspeed) September 15, 2016
I love Ariana but that was low key rude— tracy 🐢 (@osnapitztrace) September 15, 2016
Later that day, the 23-year-old confirmed she was happy with Mac while appearing on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Watch!
Three years ago, Grande and Miller worked together on her single “The Way,” but things didn’t become romantic until her recent split with dancer Ricky Alvarez.
Earlier this week, he told People magazine, "Just both of us older, more mature and more sure of ourselves. When we first recorded together we were young and figuring it out, which we still are, but now seeing her growth and my growth — it's great.”
He went on to say, "We hung out for a long time and everything just happened organically. We love making music together — we do that always. But she's my best friend in the world."
