And just like that our childhoods have been ruined.
Pete Davidson has graced the cover of Paper magazine and it's really something. The Saturday Night Live star posed for Paper's Break the Internet issue, known for their, um, attention grabbing covers. Kim Kardashian famously graced the front cover naked in 2014, while Nicki Minaj went topless for a ménage à trois with two clones in 2017. Iconique.
So, when it came time for Pete's cover, of course, Paper had to go for something truly shocking. Well, they've done it. In the cover photo, Pete posed as a dickless Ken Doll and we have so many questions.

Now we can only assume the dickless element of the shoot is because he's known for having "Big Dick Energy", while his ex-fiancée Ariana Grande once said he was packing "10 inches". Make of that what you will. But that being said… just why? And, the most important question of all, why the one sock?!
The rest of the shoot includes various photos of Pete posing like a seriously creepy living doll alongside his very own Barbie, actress Julia Fox. Honestly, it's nightmare fuel. And although he's all covered up, it's hard to not think about his freakishly smooth crotch on the front page.
Unsurprisingly, the internet had some thoughts about the cover.

Pete's photos accompanied an interview by 13 Reasons Why star Tommy Dorfman. He was actually the one that came up with the Ken doll concept because "tabloids manipulate people in that way, him [Pete] especially". The comedian was on board with the idea but wanted something more sombre that would reflect on his mental health struggles, which he's spoken about publicly. They settled for the Staten Island Ken Doll version of Pete (where he hails from) stuck in a Barbie nightmare.
"You'd be like depressed Ken," Tommy said. Pete replied: "Yeah! And dickless, like, with Ken-dick."
