Although it’s been months since Ariana Grande has been out of the spotlight, rumors are swirling about the pint-size singer’s hair and personal life.
Ariana Grande hasn’t been in the public eye since her “donutgate” scandal. The “One Last Time” singer caused controversy when she was seen licking donuts and saying she hates Americans on the Fourth of July of all days. Grande was at Wolfee’s Donuts with her rumored new beau, backup dancer Ricky Alvarez. Now it looks like the two are still going strong since they were spotted at a MTV VMAs afterparty.
According to a previous report via the Hollywood Life, Ariana and Ricky couldn’t keep their hands to themselves when they attended the party on Sunday night, August 30. According to an alleged insider, Ariana and Ricky were very aware that there were cameras around, so they decided to keep the PDA on the down low, unlike the infamous surveillance video filmed by Wolfee’s Donuts.
“Ricky was all over Ariana throughout the night in the VIP area. He wouldn’t leave her sight and constantly whispering in her ear and making her laugh. He was very cute with her. They shared a few kisses, but she was definitely on high alert with all the cameras around, so she just stuck to holding hands over major PDA.”
According to another report via Billboard, Ariana and Ricky were hanging out with her manager Scooter Braun, which is probably why they decided to keep their interaction strictly professional.
Fans assumed that Grande and her backup dancer were more than just friends when she kissed him during a performance on June 28. Their romance was then confirmed in the infamous donut video on July 4. The insider added that although Grande and Alvarez have been spending a lot of time together, they’re not in a serious relationship at the moment.
“They are not super serious, but they are exclusive. [Their relationship is] very new and they are very comfortable around each other so that is helping things move forward quicker than usual.”
There’s another report that Grande has one more problem to deal with. The so-called diva’s ponytail is making her hair problems worse than better. One of Grande’s stylists told OK! Magazine that she’s losing her hair.
“Her hair is a mess – what’s left of it, anyway. It’s destroyed at the ends, and the reason she scrapes it back into a high ponytail all the time is because it’s kind of patchy on top.”
Ariana has said in the past that the damage came from constantly bleaching and coloring her hair over the years. She tweeted to one of her fans: “I wear extensions but I wear it in a ponytail because my actually hair is so broken that it looks absolutely ratchet and absurd when I let it down.”
The anonymous stylist told the tabloid that fans shouldn’t expect to see Grande with a new hairstyle anymore soon. She wants to stick with her signature ponytail and still won’t try wearing wigs.
