The “Never Really Over” singer, 34, ran into the Grammy winner, 26, at a restaurant while dining with Bloom, 42, and his son, Flynn, whom he shares with ex-wife Miranda Kerr. “At the end of my long meal with Orlando and his son, we finished after an hour and a half, and we asked for the check, and they’re like, ‘Ariana Grande has taken care of it,’” Perry said during a recent interview with Los Angeles radio station KOST 103.5. “We’re like, ‘Oh, my God. That’s so cool!’ And Orlando’s son is 8, so I think he was like, ‘Dope.’”
Bloom, for his part, appreciated Grande’s generosity. “That’s such a boss move, and it’s just such a cute gesture,” Perry noted. “Orlando was like, ‘Man, I have such mad respect for her.’ … She was so kind.”
The “7 Rings” songstress gushed over the “Small Talk” singer in an October 2015 interview. “Katy was very nice to me when I first put out music, and she sort of, like, took me under her wing and was like, ‘Hey, if you ever need anything, I can totally be here for you and whatever,’” she recounted on the Zach Sang Show. “She was very welcoming and wonderful.”
In fact, Grande has long been a fan of Perry. “It was so crazy because I went to her show at the Staples Center a couple years ago, and I was totally inspired by it. I was like, ‘Wow.’ I was like, ‘I wanna do this one day,’” she explained. “Then, just three years later, I had my own show there and she came. And she held my hand in the prayer circle and she was there, and she was like, ‘Girl, you were here a few years ago watching me, now we’re here watching you. You better kill it, girl.’ So she’s always been really supportive.”
