During a recent interview with Hip Hollywood, the “Only Wanna Give It To You” singer said hiding her relationship from public was too hard.

“We are happy. I’m glad I’m not hiding it anymore. It was a lot of work,” she said. “The funny thing is, we would be out all the time and one day, it just showed up on a blog and it was like ‘Whoa!’ I knew it was going to happen eventually, you just have to live your life. That’s my thing!”

She added, “He’s awesome, we’ve been friends for such a long time. Of all the guys that I’ve met throughout being in the limelight, he’s the one guy that really stuck it out and built a friendship with me and it meant a lot.”

Congrats to the new lovebirds!
