The comedian opened up during one of his comedic performances.
His revelations were made in jest while he co-hosted Judd & Pete for America, a comedy show benefiting Swing Left. He joked with the crowd about his situation.
“Well, as you could tell, I don’t want to be here. There’s a lot going on. Does anybody have any open rooms? Looking for a roommate?”
He also commented on the collection of tattoos he got in honor of his failed relationship with the pop star.
“Um, I’ve been covering a bunch of tattoos, that’s fun. I’m f–king 0 for 2 in the tattoo [department] . Yeah, I’m afraid to get my mom tattooed on me, that’s how bad it is.”
“So, obviously you know I, we [Ariana and I] broke up or whatever but when me and her first got engaged we got tattoos. And it was like in a magazine like, ‘Was Pete Davidson stupid?’ And 93% of it said yes. So my boy, he was like, ‘Don’t listen to that sh*t man. They’re literally f–king haters.’ And I’m like, yeah, f*ck that. I’m not stupid. And the other day we were in my kitchen and he was like, ‘Yo bro. Turns out you were stupid.'”
Davidson’s co-host, Judd Apatow, thanked him for coming through despite the hard times. The SNL star replied with another joke
“Well, you put me on the flyer, I had to. F*Ck my feelings.”
“I care more about America than your feelings, I do,” Apatow joked. “I care more about America than Pete’s feelings.”
Davidson then equates himself to the nation.
“I feel like I am America. I’m a good guy that just keeps getting kicked in the dick. You’re like, ‘Ah, that f*cking poor kid. Hope he doesn’t kill himself.’ That’s America.”
