In a new interview, Ariana Grande has revealed that she wanted to marry Pete Davidson since the day she met him two years ago at SNL.
While talking to Jimmy Fallon, Ariana Grande revealed that she knew she liked Davidson after her first meeting with him on Saturday Night Live in 2016. 24-year-old Davidson is a part of the cast, and Grande was the musical guest at the time.
She told Fallon, “We never exchanged numbers or anything. We weren’t even friends for the longest time.”
She said that she isn’t one for crushes on people she doesn’t personally know, but that she “had the biggest crush in the world on him the whole time—like forever.”
She added, “My friends used to make fun of me for all that stuff.”
She said that after she left the writer’s room where she had been working on sketches with him, “I jokingly said to my tour manager—I was like, ‘I’m marrying him 100 percent. I was like, ‘I’m literally marrying him.’”
Luckily for her, the two got engaged in June of this year after just a couple of months of being together. In fact, their relationship has moved at such a lightening pace that Grande said just a little while after they started hanging out, she wrote a song about her feelings for him and sent to him.
She explained, “I just made it and I sent it to him and I didn’t know what to call it, so I just called it ‘Pete.’ It was going to be that or like, ‘This Is About Pete Davidson.’ I was like why not just be direct?”
Ariana Grande’s new album, Sweetener, is out now. The song Pete Davidson is on it.
