"She called me one time, one time only, and she goes 'Hi, it's Aretha, ' and I'm like, 'Franklin?!" she remembered, explaining how she was hoping Ariana would listen to some music made by either her "nephew or her grandson".

Ariana Grande's fourth studio album, "Sweetener," dropped today, and she was not shy about pouring some sugary sentiments on her fiancé, "Saturday Night Live" comedian Pete Davidson.

Just text me the MP3 or something.' And she was like, 'Well, I don't know how to do that so I'm just gonna send it to you.' And then like four months later I got a package with a CD...

According to Grande, it all happened after she met with the SNL actor backstage ahead of her hosting duties in March 2016.


Ariana added, "We never exchanged numbers or anything".

As she noted, "My friends used to make fun of me for all that stuff".

"I was confused at first, but I learned that the last 40 sec of silence on "Get Well Soon" are to honor the victims of the Manchester bombing.:cry:we're not supposed to have any tears left to cry but. here I am", wrote one Twitter user. "But I had the biggest crush in the world on him the whole time, like forever". I left and I jokingly said to my tour manager, "I'm marrying him 100 percent".

She was right-Davidson proposed after the couple had just been dating for a few weeks. "We sang at the White House and she was so sweet and she was like so cute and I was like, 'How are you a real person?' It's an honour to have met her", Grande said. She says she feels it when she travels and hates the extra security measures she has to take to feel safe, but that's the way it has to be now.
