Ariana Grande is officially dating her backup dancer Ricky Alvarez and this news has some entertainment fans thinking that maybe she is following the Jennifer Lopez blueprint of dating a backup dancer to find love.
Ricky Alvarez has jumped from the depths of obscurity into the media spotlight since becoming the official boyfriend of Ariana Grande and the attractive singer has never looked happier.
Some entertainment fans suspect that part of the happiness comes from the fact that not only does he have a great body but they have been able to get to know each other outside of the spotlight before making their relationship public.
Her spending time with a backup dancer whom she had to work with on their dance moves for concerts likely did not arouse any suspicion from entertainment reporters but if she had been seen spending time with a prominent celebrity such as her ex, rapper star Big Sean it would have become major news and made it difficult for them to get to know each other.
Another benefit to dating your backup dancer is that she does not have to worry about her boyfriend saying embarrassing revelations about her body and his opinion about their sex life in interviews. The media is not going to search out her boyfriend for interviews and that helps ensure that the attention of the media stays on her and is not shared with another high-profile entertainer such as her ex, Big Sean.
Ariana Grande looks like she has found someone to love whose presence in her life is unlikely to lead to embarrassing comments about her attractive body and whom she will not have to share the entertainment spotlight with outside of red carpet appearances, a relationship arrangement that is strikingly similar to another prominent entertainer, Hollywood and music superstar Jennifer Lopez.
