During a post VMA interview, Ryan Seacrest made the attempt to get Ariana Grande to confirm or deny her rumored relationship with ‘Best Mistake’ and ‘Right There’ collaborator Big Sean .

Of course she opted for an open-ended answer. 

“I mean, I guess, curiosity man, it’ll kill you,” she dodged. “I don’t know what to say, Ryan. Why are you doing this to me? I’ll tell you. I’ll tell you when we’re not on the air. I trust you. I’ve known you for a long time. I don’t know about these millions of people listening in right now.” 

The two were spotted holding hands backstage at Sunday night’s VMAs and Monday night, Big Sean dedicated an Instagram post to the singer with the caption: “Ari’s #1 in 80 countries! So great when good things happen to good people. I’m more than proud of you @arianagrande n grateful to be a part of it!”
