Pete Davidson Talks Ariana Grande Engagement on SNL's 'Weekend Update'

Pete Davidson talks with Weekend Update co-host Colin Jost on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live on Saturday (September 29) in New York City.

The 24-year-old comedian chatted about his engagement to Ariana Grande, including receiving death threats, his song “Pete Davidson” on her new album, and more.

“I got engaged, and no one could believe it. I can’t believe it,” Pete said about his summer. “Yeah, I get it. She’s the number one pop star in the world, and I’m that guy from SNL that everyone thinks is in desperate need of more blood.”

“I hate it, it’s awful. I’m so scared. Yo, I got death threats. It’s Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, and Pete Davidson, are all people who have gotten death threats,” he added about the attention he’s received. “And I assumed that I would find out about it like they do in movies, the government’s in your living room with headsets, and there’s detectives in suits, and they’re like ‘Sir we have a situation.’ That’s not how I found out. I was leaving my building and my doorman said, ‘Yo man, somebody’s trying to kill you.’”

    Putting yourself in the same group as MLK JR and Malcom X…that is some serious ego right there just because you got engaged to a pop star. the threats against MLK and MX were REAL the ones against PD are bullshit that people say on the internert

  • Mark

    His “humor” isn’t for everyone but his fiancee is saying she’s had a tough month and cancelled her appearance so she could get some rest and clarity. Maybe he should be respectful of that and hold off talking about it and thus generating more attention to them while she’s trying to recover from a deep and personal loss.

    He seems to be more in love with Ariana the pop star than Ariana the person in my opinion. When he talks about her, it’s always what she’s achieved, how famous she is etc. Don’t get me wrong, I know talking about that side is part and parcel of dating a celeb but it’s all he seems to care about.
