Pete Davidson made his first stage appearance for the first time since his relationship with Ariana Grande ended.
Speaking at comedy show Judd & Pete for America in West Hollywood on Saturday, the SNL star joked about his situation, saying, “Well, as you could tell, I don’t want to be here. There’s a lot going on. Does anybody have any open rooms? Looking for a roommate?”
He continued, “So, obviously you know I, we [Ariana and I] broke up or whatever but when me and her first got engaged we got tattoos. And it was like in a magazine like, ‘Was Pete Davidson stupid?’ And 93% of it said yes. So my boy, he was like, ‘Don’t listen to that s–t man. They’re literally f–king haters.’ And I’m like, yeah, f–k that. I’m not stupid. And the other day we were in my kitchen and he was like, ‘Yo bro. Turns out you were stupid.'”
The show co-host Judd Apatow shared concerns about Davidson’s welfare, however, joked, “I care more about America than your feelings, I do. I care more about America than Pete’s feelings.”
To which Pete responded, “I feel like I am America. I’m a good guy that just keeps getting kicked in the dick. You’re like, ‘Ah, that f–king poor kid. Hope he doesn’t kill himself.’ That’s America.”
Ariana also addressed the breakup last week in an Instagram post in which also announced that she would be taking a break from the internet. Read all about it here.
