After a whirlwind romance, Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson and singer/songwriter Ariana Grande have split, calling off their engagement and going their separate ways.
On Saturday, October 20, Pete Davidson broke his silence on their breakup the best way he knows how— through laughter.
“Well, as you could tell, I don’t want to be here. There’s a lot going on,” Davidson reportedly told a crowd while hosting the Judd and Pete for America comedy show. “Does anybody have any open rooms? Looking for a roommate?”
He further addressed the situation by discussing the matching tattoos he and Ariana had gotten together following their engagement.
“So, obviously you know I, we [Ariana and I] broke up or whatever but when me and her first got engaged we got tattoos,” he said. “And it was like in a magazine like, ‘Was Pete Davidson stupid?’ And 93% of it said yes. So my boy, he was like, ‘Don’t listen to that s–t man. They’re literally f–king haters.’ And I’m like, yeah, f–k that. I’m not stupid. And the other day we were in my kitchen and he was like, ‘Yo bro. Turns out you were stupid.'”
He joked that he’s afraid to even get his mom’s name tattooed on him now.
“I’ve been covering a bunch of tattoos, that’s fun. I’m f—ing 0-for-2 in the tattoo department. Yeah, I’m afraid to get my mom tattooed on me because she’d leave.”
Ariana Grande broke her silence on the situation last week while shooting for the 15-year celebration of the hit musical Wicked, saying, “Time to say bye bye again to the Internet for just a bit. It’s hard not to bump [into] news and stuff that I’m not trying to see,” she said. “It’s very sad and we’re all trying very hard to keep going.”
