Most people want to deal with a breakup in one of two ways: bone everything that shows up within 175 miles on Grindr or guzzle a case of red wine, listen to Faith Hill, and sob on the couch. I’ve done both. Ariana Grande (seen above with Idina Menzel), however, still stuck to a work commitment and performed for a pre-taped segment on NBC’s upcoming anniversary special for Wicked following her breakup with Pete Davidson. Pete, however, gave a hard pass to performing at Temple University’s homecoming.
People says Ariana made it to the Wicked taping despite saying in a post on Instagram her anxiety almost ruined it for her. Here’s a clip of her performing The Wizard & I last night.
She, like many a Real Housewife, said “not today Satan” and instructed Satan to suck her “big green diiiiik.” Funny, that’s exactly what we sang in children’s choir during Sunday school growing up! She also seemed glad have the distraction before claiming she’ll be quitting the internet for a while in a now-deleted Instagram post. Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like she’s going to do us a solid and take Kim Kardashiian with her:
“Ok today was v special and i’m so grateful i was able to be there.Time to say bye bye again to the internet for just a lil bit. It’s hard not to bump news n stuff that I’m not trying to see rn. It’s very sad and we’re all tryin very hard to keep going. love u. and thank u for bein here always.”
Pete and Ariana called it off over the weekend because duh/because they finally realized people spend more time mulling over a couch purchase than they did jumping into an engagement. Part of their quickie engagement included multiple tattoos in reference to each other, but TMZ says Ariana used a Band-Aid to cover the “pete” tattoo on her finger while she performed. Ariana is keeping their music video star/teacup pig while Pete gets to have the $100,000 engagement ring back. I’d say that means Pete got the upper hand, but it appears he isn’t having a great time.
People says Pete pulled out of a scheduled appearance at Temple’s homecoming “due to personal reasons.” Those close to the two say it’s incredibly sad, but I just have a message for Pete! The only way to get over someone is to get under someone new, and where better to try that out than with horny college students?! Wait, does that line still work for straight dudes? Oh, whatever.
