Being single is officially one less “Problem” for Ariana Grande!
The pop star set the record straight about her love life during an appearance on Wednesday’s “Ellen,” confirming that she and rapper Mac Miller are indeed an item.
Although Ariana appeared to make her and Mac’s relationship social media official last week with a cuddly Instagram snap, her chat with Ellen is the first time she’s spoken publicly about it.
Ariana didn’t make the admission easily, though. The 24-year-old appeared a bit flustered during Ellen’s straightforward questioning, covering her face with her hands and fidgeting in her seat.
“This is so crazy! I wasn’t prepared,” she explained.
Adding, “I’ve never had the relationship talk on a show before.”
The talk show host pointed out that Ariana and Mac had previously performed on “Ellen” three years ago, and showed a clip from their duet on the projection screen.
“We were babies,” Ariana noted.
Ellen recalled a conversation she had with Ariana about her future boyfriend following their joint appearance.
“I asked you something about him and you said, ‘Oh, I’m his homie,'” Ellen recalled, joking, “Now he’s living in your homie.”
When Ariana remained reluctant to respond, Ellen pressed on.
“But you’re with him, right? And you’re happy?” she asked.
“Oh, yeah,” Ariana said, shrugging nervously and smiling.
The “Into You” singer has had other high-profile romances — most notably with hip-hop artist Big Sean, from whom she split back in April 2015.
She and Mac teamed up on the track “My Favorite Part” off his upcoming fourth album “The Divine Feminine,” which drops September 16.
