Ariana Grande and Ricky Alvarez are the latest in a long list of celebrity romances that, just like Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, have ended in heartache. To ease the pain of ending that relationship, 23-year-old Grande is taking her heartbreak and pouring it into a new breakup track, an insider told Hollywood Life.
Although Ariana was the one to make the choice to split with Ricky, 24, the source revealed that she feels sad. However, she is channeling that sorrow into breakup songs that tell the story of what happened, from love to loss.
“[Grande] has gone into the studio to pour her heart into a breakup track. It was her decision to be single and she is sad but also energized to get her emotions out into her work,” clarified the insider.
“She has spent the morning in the studio laying down some new tracks about love and loss.”
These tunes won’t be the first songs that Ariana has crafted as a result of her relationship with Ricky. She previously revealed that “Moonlight,” the opener of her album, was penned following their first kiss.
In addition to those breakup songs, however, will fans ever learn what really happened that caused that sweet romance to turn sour? Grande posted a cryptic message on Twitter about the situation.
“Life is wild…and life is f—ing fantastic!” tweeted the singer.
Where will Ariana turn for comfort? Fans are speculating that Justin Bieber has replaced Selena Gomez with Grande, and that she might be secretly dating Bieber, according to Teen Vogue.
Twitter has taken the concept and exploded, with fans tweeting variations on their hope that Justin and Ariana will become the hot new couple, including fans insisting that Jelena (Justin + Selena) was over.
Well yas that's the hashtag that should be trending! #JelenaWillNeverRise— Mona (@Ms1631M) July 26, 2016
Some pointed out the similarities.
“Ariana said she likes funnys guys with tats. Justin has like 500 tats and is a huge dork. Just sayin. Hangout. @justinbieber @ArianaGrande,” tweeted one fan.
but just imagine how cute justin and ariana would be as a couple— sierra (@jarianababiess) July 31, 2016
Others noted that both Bieber and Grande are single.
But what really got fans of Jariana (Justin + Ariana) joyful was when they posted similar pictures on Instagram at almost the same time, with even the watermarks parallel.
Bieber kicked off the excitement by re-gramming a picture in which he is portrayed as Pikachu. The watermark showed that it was from a fan account used to ship the singer with Grande. That photo caused the #JelenaWillNeverRiseParty hashtag to trend on Twitter.
But some attending that party did so only to offer up hope that Jelena would rise again, with those pushing Grande and Justin dating arguing instead that it was time to bid Jelena farewell.
However, there is the possibility that despite the hope from fans of Justin and Ariana as a couple, the two have revealed only a shared passion for Pokémon Go. Bieber recently enjoyed himself playing Pokémon Go near Central Park in New York City, a pleasure made even stronger by the fact that no one noticed him, according to Us Weekly.
His friend and manager Scooter Braun revealed the experience, which included the singer running around in a crowd trying to nab a rare Pokémon. Players were too busy screaming about the Gyarados to pay any attention to a famous pop singer.
“This is amazing,” posted Braun on social media.
“@justinbieber and [Bieber’s friend and music video director] @alfredoflores in nyc looking for Pokémon and no one looks at who is next to them.”
In addition to Bieber, celebrities who have shown their passion for the augmented reality app include John Mayer, who shelled out $99.99 for 14,500 PokeCoins last month; Tyga, who temporarily deserted his girlfriend Kylie Jenner in order to hunt for Pokémon at the Budapest airport on July 12, and Demi Lovato, whose secret addiction was unveiled by tour mate Nick Jonas. Jonas even complained that Demi’s passion was becoming obsessive.
