Nick Cannon shaded Ariana Grande after hanging out with her ex-fiance Pete Davidson, later saying he meant no harm with the jokes.
Cannon appeared on the Wendy Williams Show and sat down to discuss the ‘Hot Topics’. He shared, “Last night I was hanging out with my little brother, Pete Davidson. We was in Brooklyn! We were having some good conversation and we were having cougar conversations. I taught that young boy well.”
He also commented on Pete’s new relationship with Kate Beckinsale, saying, “I will take credit for it. I’m the one who told him, ‘Get you an older woman, man!’ I said that. Leave them little pop stars alone! An old woman knows what she wants! She don’t play no games! That’s what I’m talking about. Get you somebody older!”
He added, “Them little pop stars, they don’t know! They giving Japanese menus tattooed on their backs from the sushi restaurant. I’m joking, but that is Ariana Grande’s hand. I think that’s even after she tried to fix it. That’s some young girl stuff. Older women don’t like tardy barbecues. They like chitlins and grits.”
Cannon did say that he sympathized with Grande as well, referring to getting Mariah Carey’s name tattooed on his back and saying, “That was for love! That’s love right there. I just added to it. I put some more on there.”
While speaking to the audience, Cannon also promised that Wendy would return to the show soon.
