By now, the world has seen the video of Ariana Grande, appearing to lick a donut in a donut shop in Lake Elsinore, California, and then kissing her backup dancer and purported love interest, Ricky Alvarez. There was that “I hate America” comment, too, but that’s a separate issue entirely (one that she has now apologized for).
So who is Ricky Alvarez? That is the question. Well, on social media, his nickname is @rickyrozay -- no relation to Rick Ross. He makes Los Angeles his home, he speaks Spanish, enjoys dancing to Nicky Jam, considers his mom his "best friend" and loves his abuelita (grandmother).
