But Grande put to rest that she has any animosity towards Davidson in a new song called "Thank You, Next". Davidson himself threw a few self-digs during his "Weekend Update" segment.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson split a little over two weeks ago. Earlier this year, she broke up with her long-term boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller, and began dating a new man, Pete Davidson, who she got engaged to, and then broke things off with shortly after her ex Mac Miller unexpectedly and tragically died. She sings "Even nearly got married / To Pete I'm so thankful".

Ariana Grande recently dropped "thank u, next", a track paying homage to all of her exes.

Just half an hour before the show aired, Grande made her own public comment about the relationship by releasing a new song entitled "thank u, next" which contains multiple references to Davidson.

Near the end of his sketch, Davidson addressed the audience more seriously about ending his engagement to Grande in an unusual turn.

The British comedian had some amusing moments with the 76-year-old singing legend as she admitted that she's not the best driver. To calm herself down before a performance, she tells herself, "Let go and let god". "I get scared", she admitted.

The chorus of "Thank U, Next" is "I'm so f--ing grateful for my ex".

On Thursday, SNL released a promo clip with Pete joking about his quick engagement to Ariana by saying to musical guest Maggie Rogers, "Hey Maggie, I'm Pete". "For somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh", she wrote.

Bergen requested "another Pete Davidson" cocktail from Kenan Thompson, going on to explaining the drink as, "All I know is it's got a lot going on, but it still gets the job done".

Grande didn't think the joke was very amusing, slamming Davidson in several since-deleted tweets. "Now, please go vote on Tuesday, alright?"
