Sad news for fans of Ariana Grande and Niall Horan‘s adorable hangout! It seems like there is nothing romantic going on between them. According to TMZ, the One Direction singer was invited to hang out with the pop star backstage during her Honeymoon Tour, but she’s not angling for a relationship with him.

The two singers never even hung out one-on-one! The entire night, they were surrounded by their friends and her manager, Scooter Braun. Still, we totally ship them as BFFs. They had so much fun together. Can we come along next time?

We hope that she’ll return the favor and visit the guys on their On the Road Again tour. Ariana with all four members of 1D? It would be so epic! And, you know, maybe one day when their schedules overlap, they could turn their platonic relationship into something more.

Do you think that Ariana and Niall would make a cute couple? Let us know in the comments!
