LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Ariana Grande’s new album, “Yours Truly,” debuted at No. 1 on the charts this week. So, is the “Sam & Cat” star celebrating her success with a certain someone by her side?
The 20-year-old beauty set the record straight regarding rumors she’s dating The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes during a visit to Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday.
“No, no — we’re not dating,” Ariana told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover of Nathan, who she collaborated with on the song, “Almost Is Never Enough.” “He’s the sweetest. He’s amazing. I have to say, he’s one of the most talented vocalists I’ve ever heard in my life. And live, all the time, he’s like, spot on.”
Ariana is enjoying acting and singing, and said her goal is to have a career similar to Barbra Streisand.
“She’s done acting and music and she’s been a lady through it all,” Ariana said of Babs. “She never really had to do anything crazy to get attention. She’s just relied on making great music.”
While Ariana said she hasn’t felt the need to “do anything quite yet,” she enjoyed Miley Cyrus’ 2013 MTV VMA performance.
“She looked like she was having the time of her life… and her music, I have to say, is next level,” she said. “I love ‘Wrecking Ball.’”
