Ariana Grande Shut Down The Idea That She Needs To Bring Her Boyfriend Everywhere

Ariana Grande walked the VMA’s red carpet alone on Sunday, but don’t let that worry you. She and her current boyfriend Mac Miller aren’t going through a rough patch, the singer just wanted to attend the show by herself this year. Asked by Charlemagne Tha God “You’re alone…where the boo at?” Ariana succinctly replied “being supportive.” She laughed off the suggestion that there was any specific reason that she and Mac weren’t joined at the hip for one of the most well-attended music events of the year and continued, “It’s okay to be alone even when you have a boo. You can do both.” She might not be a single lady but she also doesn’t have love on the brain 24/7/365.

As far as the show itself goes, the Dangerous Woman said she is excited for Rihanna and Britney to perform and just to be in great company with all of the stars and artists that are in the room tonight. She proved that such “great company” doesn’t always have to be a significant other. She can strut her stuff on the red carpet without an escort.
