Ariana Grande Reveals Crush on Jim Carrey the Day After His Girlfriend's Suicide: Awkward or Okay?

by at .  Updated at .

On Tuesday, Jim Carrey's on-again, off-again girlfriend Cathriona White committed suicide. The Irish-born makeup artist was just 30 years old.

Yesterday, Ariana Grande sat for an interview with Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan and...revealed that Carrey is her number one celebrity crush.

We're sure she didn't mean for her comment to be in poor taste, but given Ariana's history of embarrassing gaffes (and the fact that celebs virtually always get a chance to screen their interview questions in advance), you'd think she would've given a less cringe-inducing answer.

On the bright side, rumors of Ariana dating Justin Bieber started circulating last month, so she certainly could've picked a worse Canadian to crush on.

UPDATE: A rep for Ariana informs us that the segment was taped on September 15, several weeks before White's tragic death.
