Sometimes we just need a little dial-up peen, and usually it’s no easier than firing off a quick “hey, u up?” to an ex-boo thang you know is just as single as we are. Considering the emotional roller coaster of a 2018 that Ariana Grande had, who can blame a huss for wanting to ride on into 2019 with some familiar trouser snake? Ariana herself says she will likely not be dating anyone again EVER…and then later that day was seen walking around with ex-boyfriend, Ricky Alvarez. That had some people saying, “Liar, liar, pants on fire!” Psh, calm down. This is 2019! We can bone and not date all we damn well please!
E! News caught Ricky walking down a New York City street with Ariana on New Year’s Day. Ricky looked a little dazed while Ariana looked like if the Gilead leadership couldn’t tell if she was a Handmaid, working the Colonies, or if she should be a model of Star Jones thigh-high boots at Payless (that will definitely be a thing in post-Apocalyptic America).
This is the part where Ariana Grande makes it clear that she isn't dating anyone "for the rest of this year/probably my life"—despite hanging out with her ex. https://t.co/Le5szfQQFZ

Ricky was one of the exes Ari sang about in “thank u, Next.” People noticed Ariana had commented and complimented him in an Instagram photo, which totally means they were rubbing up on each other like rabbits in heat. She eventually told people they were “just friends” and everyone needed to “take a breather.” Oh, like the one you need after boning your ex, ARIANA?!?! OK, I’ll stop. Speaking of “Thank u, Next” exes, Pete Davidson was at a comedy show on New Year’s Eve and gave his thoughts on the song:
“That shit came out before I had to put on a fucking duck hat and be like, ‘derrrp here’s the pizza!’So all my friends were there. It was a sad day. We didn’t know it was going to happen.This won’t be easy, this is rough.So I start playing it. And we’re all like, ‘Ehhh… it’s ok.’ We’re like ‘Okay, it’s not that bad for you.’”
