The Wanted‘s Nathan Sykes just revealed that before he started dating Ariana Grande he was interested in Selena Gomez.
Speaking to We Love Pop magazine (via MTV UK), the boy bander opened up about his past crush on the “Come & Get It” singer.
“[Max George] follows someone on Twitter, then he is in the tabloids saying he is in a relationship. I started following the Selena Gomez and nothing,” Sykes said. “Where is my relationship?!”
Sykes, 20, never pursued Gomez, 21, because of his friendship with her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, 19.
Nathan revealed: “To be honest, I always liked Selena, but I really did not want to go that side because Justin would kill me!”
He continued: “I would probably receive a call from [our mutual manager] Scooter [Braun] telling me to stay away!”
Even so, that didn’t stop the English singer from gawking at the Spring Breakers star when he spotted her at a Justin Timberlake concert. “I must have looked like a complete idiot. My friends were like, ‘Just say hi,’ but I could not even talk to her!” Sykes recalls. “But that’s how I am. I’m very, very nervous around girls that I really like. I need to improve my game.”
Nathan and new flame Ariana finally went public with their long-rumoured romance last month, with Nathan telling his Twitter followers he was “terrified” to reveal the pair’s big news.
the couple confirmed their courtship via Twitter. “we hesitated saying anything as people can be a bit insensitive but thank u,” Ariana tweeted. “we value all of your happiness, thank you for valuing ours.”
Ironically, Grande was linked to Justin Bieber after she posted a picture of Bieber kissing her cheek. Ariana tweeting, “Everyone, girls are allowed to be friends with guys. I’m a lady.Chill out.”
