Pete Davidson Says He Was Blindsided By Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next”

Pete Davidson rang in the new year doing a stand-up set and joked about his breakup with Ariana Grande.

The 25-year-old Saturday Night Live comedian did a set in Boston, Massachusetts on New Year’s Eve. He joked about Grande, the fallen comedian Louis C.K. and his drug use.

Davidson specifically spoke on Grande’s breakup song “Thank U, Next” where she sang about Davidson and the rest of her exes. The lyric specifically was, “Even almost got married / And for Pete, I’m so thankful.”

According to E! News, Davidson said he wasn’t aware that Grande would be dropping her breakup song.

“Here’s the thing about the breakup song. Usually, breakup songs you know who it’s about but you don’t really know. That G named all of us,” he said during her set. “Bam. She named all of us. And then, tells us, yeah he has a big d**k.”

Davidson is commenting on the acronym BDE, which was coined over the summer to describe the comedian. Grande has also joked about Davidson’s ample package.

The couple broke up and then Grande dropped her breakup song “Thank U, Next” right before Saturday Night Live aired. Davidson called it a “sad day” when the song dropped.

“That s**t came out before I had to put on a f**king duck hate and be like, ‘derp 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,” he said about listening to the song for the first time. “So I started playing it. And we’re all like, ‘Ehhh…it’s ok.’ We’re like, ‘Okay, it’s not that bad for you.'”

After the song dropped Grande said her exes heard the song before it dropped. She responded to a fan says that Sean and Ricky both heard the track before it came out.

Then in her Billboard cover story for being named Woman of the Year, she says she sent Davidson the lyric beforehand. “I wasn’t going to blindside anybody,” she told Billboard.

But according to Davidson, that’s not what happened. Yikes.
