Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson get engaged after a few weeks of dating
When is the best time to propose to someone? I've learned, through bitter experience, that it should not be on the first date. Some people date for years before they pop the question, while others have a whirlwind romance and wait mere months. Hey, when you know, you know.
Well, pop singer Ariana Grande and stand-up comedian Pete Davidson are reportedly engaged after dating for just a few weeks. Previously Ariana was dating rapper Mac Miller, and described their relationship as 'toxic.' Miller has struggled with substance abuse, and recently got busted for drunk driving, smashing his G-Wagon into a pole.
Meanwhile, Pete used to date Cazzie David, the daughter of Seinfeld creator and Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David. When asked it on Complex' Open Late with Peter Rosenberg, Davidson said, "Very talented girl, she’ll be great and she’ll be fine. Yeah, I think she’ll be okay." Really, Pete? Great? Fine? Okay? He totally missed an opportunity to say, "She'll be prettay, prettay good." How embarrassing.
Like all young twenty-something couples, Pete and Ariana have declared their love for each other on social media. Pete shared a photo of he and Ariana wearing Harry Potter robes, with the caption, "The chamber of secrets has opened." To which Ariana responded, "u tryna slytherin (i'm deleting my account now)." And after Ariana shared a teaser for her new song The Light Is Coming, Pete replied, "Pete is coming." Have you ever heard more poetic declarations of love?
We got a hint their relationship was serious when Pete got two tattoos in tribute to Ariana. On his thumb, there's Ariana's initials marked in swirly writing. And behind his left ear, there's the bunny ears from the cover to Ariana's Dangerous Woman album. Getting inked with your romantic partner's initials and image is a pretty serious step. I've learned, through bitter experience, that you should not do it after the first date.
Now an anonymous source told People that the Harry Potter-loving couple is engaged. "It’s a recent engagement. They’re just two people who found love quickly and make each other happy all the time. They both started talking about it this past weekend. It’s nothing they’ve been hiding."
Also multiple anonymous sources confirmed the news to US Weekly. One insider said, "They are a perfect fit. They are not rushing to get married. Their friends are really excited and supportive. They're constantly making each other laugh." A second source said they "were telling people that they’re engaged" at Robert Pattinson’s birthday party in Los Angeles last Saturday.
I'm glad all these sources are staying anonymous. Like the nuclear codes, this is all top-secret information. If their identities are exposed, their lives could be in great danger.
Ariana appeared to confirm the news, by tweeting "I love you so much," with thirty-eight monkey emojis, and then adding "ok bye." The tweet has since been deleted, but many people interpreted it as confirmation. Well, congratulations on the engagement, you two. I hope you write your own vows, and they're all for of dirty Harry Potter references.
