Pete Davidson sent a message to Ariana Grande on SNL and it was emotional

Pete used his segment on SNL's Weekend Update to address the drama surrounding his break up with Ariana.
It's no secret that the break up between Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson has been a bit of a messy one. Last week, Pete was dragged for making a joke about their engagement in the promo for SNL and Ariana quickly responded with a shady tweet of her own.
It all got a little bit messy on social media but on Saturday, the pair appeared to put all that behind them and get real with their fans.
Ariana dropped a surprise song (half an hour before SNL on Saturday) called 'thank u, next' where she sings about her ex boyfriends, Big Sean, Ricky Alvarez, Mac Miller and of course, Pete. In the track, she addresses her break up with Pete and thanks him for everything he taught her.
Then, Pete addressed the break up head on on Weekend Update and responded with a message of his own - and it was actually incredibly thoughtful and moving.
At the top of his part of the segment, Pete began to discuss the upcoming US midterm elections before immediately segueing into a lil' joke about how he's moved back in with his mum. At the end of the sketch, he roasted himself, then got sincere about everything and decided to address all the stuff that's been going on.
“I know some of you are curious about the break up but the truth is, it’s nobody’s business,” he said, looking a little emotional. “Sometimes things just don’t work out and that's ok. She’s a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world.”
And there you have it.
Just before the release of 'thank u, next', Ariana took to Twitter to explain what the song was about and by the sounds of things, all this shade and negativity is done. IT'S OVER. WE'RE MOVING ON. POSITIVE VIBES FROM HERE ON OUT ONLY.
THANK U, NEXT XOXO
