Well, so much for Justin Bieber’s drama-free slate for 2015…
Last night (Apr. 8) during a performance in Los Angeles the pop star made some awkward onstage advances on Ariana Grande – and her boyfriend, rapper Big Sean, is not pleased.
This is the second time this spring the prince of pop and the “Love Me Harder” singer have pulled out a surprise duet. Bieber has now showed up during Ari’s live performances in both Miami and Los Angeles.
During the first performance in Miami Bieber forgot the lyrics to one of Ariana’s songs, which was awkward enough, but during their latest onstage interaction things got even more uncomfortable. We understand that during any duet there’s bound to be physical interaction between the singers, but during one of the more improvised moments of the number, Justin Bieber came up from behind Ariana and wrapped his arms tightly around her waist and nuzzled his face into the nape of her neck! Ariana laughed it off and looked totally embarrassed by the PDA, but quickly moved away from the embrace with a small wave of her hand.
What do you think? Is it all a part of the act, or does the Bieb’s really think he’s got a shot at Ariana?
Here’s another clip of the duo playing cat and mouse all over the stage in Miami.
Regardless of Bieber’s intentions, Ariana is no single lady, and her man Big Sean reminded everyone of that fact immediately following the performance, first tweeting just a single word, “Wow.” And if that’s not direct enough for you, he followed it up with, “This kid is about to learn not to touch my girl like that. Beliebe that.” Pretty direct if you ask us.

The awkward social media blow can’t be good for Bieber as he tries to rebrand his image as a reformed bad boy. His absolution in the form of Comedy Central’s Roast was a step in the right direction, but it’s going to take more than a few lashes from Martha Stewart to make everyone forget all of the naughty deeds JB committed in 2014.
Going after someone who’s taken is not cool Bieber, so you’d better be careful around Big S. This can’t be the last surprise performance for pair, so be sure to check and see if things look a little less physical next time they’re on stage together!
