Ariana Grande rapped to Big Sean
Ariana Grande rapped to Big Sean when they first met.
The 26-year-old hip hop star loves the fact his girlfriend - who he has been dating since August 2014 - has always been a fan of his music and says she is very supportive of his career.
He said: "She's super supportive. It's cool, because she was a fan of mine before anything. The first thing she said when she met me was, 'Yo, I love your music', and she rapped my verse from 'Gang Bang' with Wiz Khalifa. She was just an actress on TV at the time. She's very open-minded. I'm proud of her."
Despite the added scrutiny which comes of dating the 'Bang Bang' singer, Sean insists he doesn't mind because she makes him so happy, he doesn't notice anything else.
He said: "Really, the way it affects my life is being happy, man. You can't measure success in anything but being happy, and she's one of the things that really makes me happy. I appreciate her, and that's it. I don't really pay attention to anything else."
If he ever needs support or advice, the rapper knows he can always turn to friend Kanye West - who has 20-month-old daughter North with wife Kim Kardashian West - for help.
He added to Rolling Stone magazine: "He's one of my best friends. We can talk about anything. I go to their house and eat dinner - Kim will fix up some food for me - and we'll work on music and talk. It's cool vibes. I think he's in a great space in his life. Things are going really well for him, and that rubs off on everyone around him. He always brings out the best in me as an artist, and I appreciate that."
