You probably expect most men, and probably some women, to react with unabashed glee if they were engaged to Ariana Grande. But most men, and probably some women, are not Pete Davidson. Instead, the Saturday Night Live and stand-up comedian described his engagement with Grande as “so sick” and “fucking lit” on a Tonight Show appearance this week.
Davidson’s words confirmed reports that he and Grande were officially engaged after dating less than a month. Young love cannot be contained, as they say. When Jimmy Fallon welcomed Davidson onto the program, he said, “”Now, you know you didn’t have to get engaged to Ariana Grande to come on our show, right?”
Davidson replied: “But I did. I feel like I won a contest. It’s so sick . . . It’s fucking lit, Jimmy. It’s so lit.”
However Davidson did come through with his candid self-deprecation and flippant attitude. Following the announcement of his engagement, Davidson described his interactions with strangers to the 2014 farewell commercial with New York Yankee legend Derek Jeter, where New Yorkers tip their cap to him as he makes his way to the stadium.
The comedian says he doesn’t understand the fervor over his engagement, and why random people care so much. “It’s weird because, like, the president’s trying to pardon himself and he’s fucking a porn star,” Davidson said. “Shouldn’t we care about that?”
Davidson recently starred in the celebrated Netflix rom-com Send It Up, which also stars Zoey Deutch, Glen Powell, and Lucy Liu. It’s doing quite well,” Davidson said. “I’m in it for like 10 seconds, but it’s a great movie and you should see it for the other great actors that are in it.”
