While it might have sparked the “DUHHH!” heard ‘round the world, Pete Davidson was on The Tonight Show last night promoting what sounds like a 10-second cameo in a Robert Pattinson movie. Of course, Pete did more than promote that movie – he also used the appearance to finally confirm that he will soon be Mr. Ariana Grande.
Entertainment Weekly said Jimmy Fallon started the whole interview by saying, “You know you didn’t have to get engaged to Ariana Grande to come on our show.” I mean…didn’t he? Pete seemed to agree:
“But I did, though! I feel like I won a contest. It’s so sick. It’s fucking lit, Jimmy.”
Pete has clearly enjoyed the “fucking lit” days of post-engagement because he described how random strangers are tipping their hats at him in honor of putting a ring on the Krispy Kreme pop star non–grata.
E! News says Ariana was watching the interview from the side of the stage with a huge smile and clapping her ass off, and Pete continued to say strangers are happy for him…but mainly because they figure if his ass can bag a pop star, then any regular shmo’ has a shot at being the next Mr. Christina Aguilera:
“Some dude came up to me and was like, ‘Yo man, you gave me hope.’”
Silly, dude. Don’t rely on hope! Just chill in the snack food aisle at the convenience store nearest Britney Spear’s house the next time boyfriend contracts are up for negotiation, and you could be the next six-month Instagram co-star!
Just to recap: Pete and Ariana are said to have linked up when she went to an SNL taping when Nicki Minaj was the musical guest. The rest is basically a lightning round of speed meeting, dating, and life commitments. Just kidding…more like a life handshake that can easily be undone with the help of Laura Wasser or any other attorney in the back of the Yellow Pages.
