Ariana Grande on Justin Bieber Kiss Photo: “I Don’t Want Drama” [Interview]

Ariana Grande Kissing interview

Ariana Grande opens up about that Justin Bieber kissy moment. During an All Access interview with fans on MTV, Ariana gave the audience on that whole situation, and said:

I went to meet and greet with my grandparents, because my nonna [grandma] has a massive crush on Justin Bieber, so I went and our fans… I think they trended #JustinandArianaSelfie or something like that. So I was like, “We have to do this,” and Justin was like, “Yeah, let’s take a picture.”

So, I took my phone and I went like this [gestures selfie] and I was just smiling, and he kissed me on the cheek. I didn’t know what to do. I just walked out of the room. I got shy.

However, Justin wanted to make sure that photo was posted on the social media sites.

Then Scooter came after me and was like, “Justin says you have to post that picture.” I was like, “I will not.” — And he was like, “He says you have to post that picture.” And I said, “I can’t.” and he asked why not and I was like “because I don’t want the drama that’s going to come with it.”

Clearly, Ariana was being reasonable, but at one point, she posted the picture, anyway. She continued:

Then, Justin tweeted me, “Post that pic.” So, I just did it, but everyone was like, “Oh my gosh a kiss on the cheek.” I’m like, “can you not? Come on!”

After taking the snapshot down, she wrote:

Everyone, girls are allowed to be friends with guys. I’m a lady. Chill out.

  • ♥belieber&jelenator♥

    aw that so cute i wish that they where together but if Justin happy im happy love you guys

  • chieber

    So what she is tryna say is that Justin and Scooter forced her to post the pic kinda thing? So that implies to other people that Justin is desperate for her to post it … I’m a belieber and I dont hate Ariana but how she made Justin look like a desperate!!!

    • HOLD ON

      she didn’t make him look desperate he WAS Desperate

      • belieber06purple

        Actually she really made him look like a desperate she doesn’t have to tell the media that kind of stuff .. Or maybe they just made up that story cause we all know that they share the same manager .. And another THING Justin doesn’t have to be so desperate about a picture to be posted cause he already kissed so many girls on the cheeks with pictures too that’s why I think this is just a story they made up to lessen the hates that is sent to Ariana (that’s my opinion if we have the same perfect if were not RESPECT!!)

      • Kalani

        He wasn’t desperate. He probably wanted to show his fans. Ariana is so cute. I love how him And Ariana are good friends.

    • boybelieber

      Yeah from what she said up there it kinda look like she’s telling us that Justin and scoot forced her to do it and also it made Justin look desperate so I agree Chieber

      • KALANI

        THERE FRIENDS. I LOVE ARIANA AND JUSTIN. BOTH AMAZING PEOPLE. BESIDES JUSTIN IS FRIENDS WITH A LOT OF THE ARTIST. I HOPE SELENA’S FRIENDS DON’T SAY ANYTHING TO NEGATIVE ABOUT JUSTIN. AND THAT SHE TELLS HER FRIENDS DON’T BASH HIM.

  • essie j

    shes so fake smh

  • Noor

    Ooooooooooohhh! I thought that they were dating.

  • Bieber Girl

    I looove Ariana Grande she is such a sweetheart…People take everything too far ITS JUST A KISS…Justin kisses girls all the time,but seriously its just the cheek,I love that pic of them

    • KALANI

      ARIANA IS CUTE AND ADORABLE. I LOVE HER SONGS. SHE’S TRULY AMAZING ARTIST.

  • Dora gnkBieber

    This is really funny i have like a 100 selfies like that with my friends (boys & girls ) ….!!!! Ok its just a kiss …ON THE CHEEK… Come on now …!!! omg !!!

  • King Candy

    I’ve been a fan of Ariana for quite a while now. And I agree with her. I don’t want any of the drama either. Why is it that people overreact to everything? It was a joking kiss on the cheek, not that big a deal.

  • Nicki

    I been a fan of Ariana and I agree with her. It’s not a big deal. I don’t think that it was all of that drama just because Justin have her a kiss on the cheek. Just like Justin said he wanted to give her a kiss. It’s. Just a kiss Justin give girls kisses all the time and you don’t see drama going around. I love you guys

  • BIEBER_LOVER_13

    Knowing that Justin wanted her to post that picture, I think he likes her! ❤ I mean, she didnt say anything about about kissing her on the cheek while taking a selfie. Justin didnt have to to kiss her in the cheek, I think it was a choice because he might’ve wanted to. They should totally go out!

  • Belieber

    People always have to start drama over everything. Idk why.

  • the truth

    JUSTIN WAS ONLY PUSHING ARIANA THAT HARD TO POST THE PICTURE BECAUSE HE WANTED SELENA TO SEE IT AND TO MAKE SELENA JEALOUS! ITS PRETTY OBVIOUS!!!!!!

    • KALANI

      PLS I HIGHLY DOUBT THAT HE WANTS TO MAKE SELENA JEALOUS. HE PROBABLY HAD OTHER INTENTIONS FOR IT. LIKE SHOWING HIS FANS. THAT HIM AND ARIANA ARE FRIENDS. ITS NOT LIKE HIM AND MILEY WERE DOING THE SAME THING.

  • rb

    Jai, just like Selena Gomez, they both have relationship insecurity issues. If the kiss by Justin was a lip kiss then it would be a different story. Look how far they live apart anyway! You have to live together to create that bond, and have constant communication to have a good relationship work. Ariana Grande and Jai Brooks will be a couple again.

    • Justice Drew Beebs Lover

      I do believe JB and Selena are going Tit for Tat….of course they are trying to make each other Jealous! They actually love eachother ad want to hurt one another- because they are Feeling so Hurt…I wish they would hurry and get back together ALREADY!! Selena dumped him! What is she thinking????

  • i love justin

    a kiss on the keck how adorable that should me me

  • i love justin

    but if Justin is happy I am happy they look so good together to bad she said no

  • I LOVE JUSTIN

    are Justin and selena back together

  • Kristathedancer

    I don’t care want they say I love justin he is the best

  • ivan

    A lot that happens with celebrities is for publicity. This was a simple affectionate kiss of friends for over two years; the media, starving for Bieber scandals, made a big deal of this. Maybe Sccoter and Justin taught it would be good for her-a sort of promotion to post the pic but maybe it was not a good idea.

  • Kristathedancer

    Those where the best questions ever for anyone

  • HOLD ON

    selena saw this pic and got revenge and took a pic with another guy. I don’t Care but Im just saying selena need to hop off ASAP. Clearly he isnt bothered with her anymore but for her to try to make justin jealous is Bull****

  • Macqueenza

    ”Justin kiss on your cheek?? OR u told him to kiss on your cheek.”who would know ??…

  • Ella chadda aniss (bieber)

    Damn another girl!!!but anyway justin is our:-*we luv ya justin…

  • NICK EARLY

    THX.

  • LegitVampire \w/

    That’s also the reason why Ariana & Jai broke up :c Still love her doe !! & Justin <3

  • ivan

    Now some make it seem Scooter and Justin bullied her into posting the pic. It was a strong suggestion, not a command. Many believers were asking for pics with them together besides he has done similar pics with fans before and after that. They make a big deal of anything he does.
