Ariana Grande surprised fans last week on the red carpet at the 2014 MTV EMAs when she showed up sans ponytail and skater skirt. Instead, she wore her hair down and flaunted a long sleek dress, which according to HollywoodLife is all thanks to her boyfriend Big Sean.
"He’s totally encouraging her to wear her hair down more. She’s attached to her big ponytail because it makes her feel protected and more confident, but he’s making her feel like she doesn’t need that," a source said.
“He tells her she’s beautiful with the ponytail too, but he’s been encouraging her to wear her hair down more, he likes it."
Ariana has been gushing about Big Sean ever since they went public with their relationship, and apparently he's helping her to feel more confident than she has in the past.
“Ariana is feeling more confident than she ever has before and it’s all because of Big Sean. He’s making her feel like the [prettiest] girl in the world," the source added.
We love that Big Sean is making Ariana feel comfortable enough to change up her look since we know it's something she has struggled with in the past. We just hope he's not pressuring her to be different.
