Ariana Grande “wasn’t ready” to love Mac Miller when they first met.
The ‘Side To Side’ hitmaker met her now-boyfriend when she was still a teenager and admits love has “been there the whole time” for them. She said: “I met him when I was 19. We have loved and adored and respected each other since the beginning, since before we even met, just because we were fans of each other’s talent. “We weren’t ready at all, though, to be together. It’s just timing. We both needed to experience some things, but the love has been there the whole time.”
And the 23-year-old singer insists she doesn’t need love to feel “complete”. She added to the April issue of Cosmopolitan magazine: “I’ve never looked at love as something that I need to complete me. I would like to be complete on my own first and fall in love with somebody who is also complete. “You can still celebrate and be totally obsessed with each other, but I want to feel a hundred percent myself so that I can love that person better.”
Meanwhile, Mac previously revealed his relationship with the brunette beauty “happened organically”.He said: “I wrote that love song before I saw her. We’re very good friends first and foremost. We made that song and started becoming close again. It’s very dope and I like how that worked out. “It was great. There was no awkwardness or weirdness, it was how it always was. Just both of us older, more mature and more sure of ourselves. When we first recorded together we were young and figuring it out, which we still are, but now seeing her growth and my growth – it’s great. We hung out for a long time and everything just happened organically. We love making music together – we do that always. But she’s my best friend in the world.”
