Pete Davidson is not afraid to laugh at himself! In a new SNL clip, the comedian pretty much reenacted his engagement with Ariana Grande, aka his ex!
In a promo for the upcoming Saturday Night Live episode, Pete is back where he and Ariana first met in 2016 – on SNL, actually – only with a different, potential bride/guest.
At the time, they really had an instant connection, and so, the singer told her tour manager, jokingly that one day she’d marry Pete.
That’s what she previously told Jimmy Fallon back in August but unfortunately, the couple did not reach the altar because they broke their engagement just four months after starting their romance.
While a lot of people rooted for the two of them, when it was over, many were not surprised, given their whirlwind engagement.
As a way to poke fun at himself and the relationship that progressed way too fast, Pete delivers a line that’s both funny and painfully true.
The comedian starts by introducing himself to musical guest Maggie Rogers ‘Hey Maggie, I’m Pete,’ and follows it up with the familiar question: ‘You wanna get married?’
‘No,’ she singer responds while shaking her head.
‘0 for three,’ Pete comments, disappointed.
You know what they say – laughter’s the best medicine, and that is especially true when it comes to heartbreak so we’re glad Pete is able to crack jokes about the failed romance with Ariana.
In addition, this is not even the first time he brings up the touchy topic and turns it into comedy.
On October 20 while at Judd and Pete For America, the 24-year-old joked: ‘Does anybody have any open rooms? Looking for a roommate? I’ have been covering a bunch of tattoos, that’s fun. I’m f***ing 0 for 2 in the tattoo department. I am even afraid to get my mom tattooed on me, that is how bad it is.’
