Ariana Grande wasn't The Wanted singer Nathan Sykes's most wanted celebrity girlfriend. According to an Oct. 2 report by E! Online, the boy band singer confirmed that he wanted to date Selena Gomez before he got with Ariana. So maybe there's hope for Justin Bieber after all.
Speaking of Justin, the only reason Nathan didn't pursue Selena is because he didn't want to anger his fellow pop star. "To be honest, I always liked Selena, but I really did not want to go that side because Justin would kill me!" Nathan told E! News. Surely Ariana won't be happy to hear that Nathan only romanced her because he couldn't get Selena.
Nathan Sykes was trying to spare Justin Bieber's feelings by not flirting with Selena Gomez, but the Biebs might be just as upset with Nathan for dating Ariana. Justin looked pretty smitten with the brunette beauty in a Twitter photo that Ariana shared with her fans a few weeks ago—it showed Justin kissing the sweet singer on the cheek. So maybe Justin should give Nathan his blessing to go after Selena so that the "Baby" singer can get a shot at winning the heart of the "Baby I" singer.
However, Nathan might find it hard to woo Selena if he ever gets the chance to ask her for her number—The Wanted singer revealed that seeing Selena at a Justin Timberlake concert left him so star struck that he couldn't say a single word to her. Hasn't Nathan ever listened to "Come & Get It?" Maybe he'll be ready someday.
So do you think that Nathan's admission of a major crush on Selena will hurt Ariana's feelings and jeopardize his relationship with his new girlfriend?
