Pete Davidson calls Ariana Grande a ‘wonderful, strong person’ on ‘Saturday Night Live’
Pete Davidson appears to joke about rushing to propose on a 'Saturday Night Live' promo. And former fiancée Ariana Grande is not amused.
Pete Davidson had quite the lead-up to his appearance on this week’s “Saturday Night Live” — after he cracked a joke about his broken engagement to Ariana Grande in one of the episode’s promos, which offended her enough to slam him on Twitter and release a song referencing their split, “Thank U, Next,” minutes before the show aired at 11:30 p.m. EST.
In response, Davidson offered an olive branch to Grande during his first major appearance on the night’s episode, in which he joined Michael Che for a “Weekend Update” segment about the midterm elections, ending his bit with a message to viewers about his and Grande’s breakup.
“The last thing I will say is, I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is, it’s nobody’s business, and sometimes things just don’t work out and that’s OK,” he said. “She’s a wonderful, strong person and I wish her all the happiness in the world. Now please, go vote on Tuesday. “

Davidson kicked off the segment by joking about the recent changes in his living situation, referencing his move out of the apartment he shared with Grande after they split.
“The midterm elections are obviously a huge deal, and after I had to move back in with my mom, I started paying attention,” he said.
Davidson was one of several exes Grande referenced on “Thank U, Next,” along with Big Sean, Ricky Alvarez and Mac Miller: “Thought I’d end up with Sean but he wasn’t a match / Wrote some songs about Ricky now I listen and laugh / Even almost got married and for Pete, I’m so thankful / Wish I could say, “Thank you” to Malcolm ’cause he was an angel.”
Grande seemed less charitable towards Davidson several days ago, after Davidson’s ill-advised “SNL” promo in which he proposed to musical guest Maggie Rogers and joked “0 for 3” when she rejected him.
“For somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh,” Grande wrote on Twitter about Davidson. “Thank u, next.”
