Now, there hasn't been a ton of hard proof, but I'm really good at understanding celebrities, so just go along with me here...
*Note, I have felt this way for the past month (aka waaay before the hard proof came out)*
1. The video that put him on the radar and introduced him to the world
Nothing major, right? Right. But for some reason, this made me feel some type of way.
2. The video of her imitating his dancing
This video was posted on the same day that she posted the video of him (she actually posted this video a few minutes before, but it makes sense to put it after in this post). This is still nothing major, but why all of the sudden is she dedicating two posts to a dancer shes never really posted about before? She always posts about the twins, Brian and Scott, but never about this dude. V suspicious...
3. Her SNAPCHATS
I wish I could post every snapchat of hers on my blog, but that's kind of impossible. However, if you follow her, you know that Ricky has been in several of her snaps lately. V cutsey ones.
4. The video where she talks about dropping "hints" to her fans about her life, is actually ONE BIG HINT!!
If you forward to 6:12, you'll see Ariana talking about some guy that she kissed on the cheek. She describes the moment as being "cute" and refers to him as "him." WHY AREN'T WE SAYING A NAME ARIANA?
Then, she makes a very bold statement about how she's comfortable sharing intimate details about her life with her fans, but not the press. Forward to 8:04. She talks about telling her fans everything and dropping hints, kind of like the one she dropped two minutes prior. She even provides an example of the type of hints she drops like "here's the name of my album" (which she recently revealed) and "this is the boy I like." Now, why would an example like "this is the boy I like" be one of the first examples to come to mind, if she wasn't liking someone at the moment???? MOVING ON...
5. Her birthday posts
The caption says it all! If these flowers were from a person like her mom, or brother, why would she post a shy monkey face, a moon, and a cloud (head in the clouds got no weight on her shoulders = she's in love).
6. This is the BIG one...
So, when I got home today I saw this video from her performance at NYC Pride, and in it she kisses one of her dancers who just so happens to be Ricky Alvarez. Now, to the press this is just a simple innocent kiss that's a part of the choreo, but to me it's confirmation of everything I've been thinking for the past month!!! WATCH!
Clearly the person who posted this is on the same page as me.
7. Last, but not least, an intimate Instagram post.
She posted this today, and if this isn't confirmation that the two are dating, then I don't know what is.
The caption. The look he's giving her under that mask. My work here is done.
Can I be Ricky Alvarez?
