It's no secret that this couple loves to joke, and in a recent Instagram post, Ariana Grande wrote that she loves Pete Davidson as "Kanye loves Kanye". On Saturday, October 7, Grande shared a photo of Davidson in SNL to his Instagram story, with subtitles: "I love you like Kanye loves Kanye", and a cute tree emoji. The photo was taken during the credits of the program, and makes reference to a line of the song of Kanye West "I Love Kanye" of its launching of 2016 The life of Pablo. The song quote was especially appropriate, as Davidson took the opportunity to speak against West's political views during the recording. The rapper created controversy last week after appearing as a musical guest on SNL and giving a speech supporting Donald Trump after the recording.
Big seemed to be on the set watching SNL to support Davidson, and he also posted a picture of his fiance in a suit behind the scenes. The image shows Davidson smiling, and Grande put several hearts and a smiling cat emoji on the photo.
It was an eventful night for the comedian, who appeared during the weekend segment of the show's update with a red baseball cap that read "Make it Kanye 2006 again." Davidson criticized West's endorsement of Trump, saying: "Strictly speaking to me, what Kanye said after we went off the air last week was one of the worst and most uncomfortable things I've seen here, and I've seen him speak Chevy Chase to an intern, "he said. Chase, which is a SNL Alumni has a well-documented history of making racist and sexist comments on the set.
Davidson also commented on West's decision to wear a "Make America Great Again" hat during rehearsals for the show. The rapper claimed that the cast members in SNL he harassed him on the stage for carrying him. "He used it all week," Davidson said. "No one told him not to use it, I wish I had harassed you, I wish I had suggested that it could bother some people, like your wife or any black person." He also jokingly said he wished people had bothered him with some of his hat options, taking a picture of himself wearing a lavender hat when he was with Grande.
Big's quote on Instagram suggests he enjoys West's music, but it's openly anti-Trump. In August, Grande spoke with Elle Magazine about aligning with progressive causes and the role to speak. The singer of "No Tears Left to Cry" said,
"There's a lot of noise when you say something about anything, but if I'm not going to say it, what's the best point to be here? Not everyone will agree with you, but that does not mean anything." I do not mean that only I'm going to shut up and sing my songs. I will also be a human being who cares about other human beings; be an ally and use my privilege to help educate people. "
It is clear that Davidson and Grande are committed to the progress of society, and disagree with the rapper's position on the current administration. These shared views are just one more reason why they are so perfect together.
