The 32-year-old singer was given a proposal by a six-year-old boy backstage at her show at MetLife Stadium on Saturday night (August 20) in East Rutherford, N.J.
“I got engaged today,” Miranda told the crowd. “There’s a little 6-year-old boy somewhere here named Sebastian. He asked me to marry him and I said, ‘Yes, in 25 years.”
She added, “When he came to my meet and greet, he got down on one knee and he was such a gentleman. It may be my favorite proposal ever…Cause girls, we deserve that. We deserve that.”
“I said YES! But he has to wait 25 years. this sweet boy Sebastian is a little gentleman. #pinkring #proposal #mademyday #jersey #spreadthelovetour❤️” Miranda later captioned a cute Instagram photo, which you can see below.
“I feel like when you listen to this song, there’s really nothing to read into. It says what it says. Everybody has a vice,” Miranda told Billboard. “Everybody goes through a time in their life when they run to it a little bit more than when they don’t. When I’m journaling my life and putting it on paper to a melody and then allowing people to hear it, I can’t worry about what somebody might twist it into, because it’s not like I’m hiding anything.”
“Every record I’ve ever made has been a reflection of where I am right then in my life,” Miranda added. “However old I am. And I’ve never held back at all. But this time, with what I happened to be going through in my life, being honest was never really a choice. Everybody knew anyway. So I just said, I’m gonna journal it, and — good days and bad days — use it for my art.”
