you know, talking about her exes. – I’ve been listening

like a normal song now, but when she was going
through all the names, it definitely seemed
like a parody. – ♪ …grateful for my ex ♪ – This is such a thoughtful

– I really like this song. I’m gonna go add it to my library
and listen to it all the way home. – I’m gonna drive home
from this today and just be singing
this for hours. – It’s really weird
to hear her curse. I’ll say that. Especially since
I still think of her– like, she looks
like she’s 12 years old. – ♪ I’m so [bleep]… ♪

for my ex ♪ – This song is so cute.
– Ariana Grande is the king of cute. – ♪ Thank you, next ♪
♪ Yeah ♪ ♪ (soft pop music fading) ♪ – Ooh! That made me
feel good in the chest! – There’s something
that I really like about it, and I think it’s the idea
of not letting something hold you back and keep you in a certain place
with pain afterward. – I love the message of self-love
for women that this– or for anyone, as a matter of fact,
that this song kind of preaches. And it’s just also such a cute,
just fun bubblegum pop song. – (FBE) So, that was
Ariana Grande’s newest song, “Thank U, Next,”
which is about her past relationships. The song came after her recent split
with comedian and Saturday Night Live star,
Pete Davidson, which was a huge shock
to a lot of their fans. – Hmm. Surprising. – (FBE) Well, the pair
has been all over the news since the rumors
of their relationship started, so we wanted to show you
some highlights of their highly
publicized relationship. – Oh my gosh.
You’re gonna make me cry here in front of millions of people.
– It says, “I’m having his kids.” And then Ariana Grande says,
“I look so good here” with a heart. (chuckles)
But, you know, I guess some people
move faster than others. – Cute together.
I mean, for real. So cute. – This some [bleep].
This some [bleep]. I want them back together. – (FBE) So, at first,
the relationship was casual, but gained a lot of attention
for their comments in each other’s social media accounts.
This speculation grew as they both got multiple tattoos
dedicated to each other. – Oh my goodness.
Oh, that’s right. They got so many tattoos
for each other. I found that really crazy.
This definitely seems like a relationship
that took off really quickly. – Why would you do that?
I mean, that just seems like a disaster
waiting to happen. – It’s kind of an interesting thing.
It’s like tattooing almost like her “Thank U, Next” song,
saying, “You know, they are a part of my life forever.
And that’s just that, you know? It’s not anything
I’m gonna remove from myself.” – Celebrity culture
in this country at least has gone a little too far.
People just use this as some kind of escapism
or something. I mean, it’s fairly harmless
in the moment, but I think for people
to get a little too into it is probably not the best. – (FBE) There were many rumors
surrounding their relationship, but their engagement wasn’t confirmed
until Pete Davidson’s appearance on Jimmy Fallon in June. – It’s weird, because I didn’t know
who he was before he started dating Ariana Grande,
and I feel kinda bad, ’cause then it’s like,
her fame has become the reason why he’s famous. – (Jimmy) Now, you know
that you didn’t have to get engaged to Ariana Grande
to come on our show. – Oh, okay. Yeah,
I remember seeing this interview. – (Jimmy) You know, we
love her so much and stuff, but I love you, too.
– (Pete) Yeah, I feel like I won a contest.
– (Jimmy laughs) – Aww. Awww.
– (Pete) It’s so funny walking down the street,
’cause dudes are walking by, and they’re like…
– (laughs) Good for them. I mean,
if one person finds another and they have a relationship,
however long or short it is, great for them.
– (Ariana) We met on SNL two, three years ago,
or whenever that was. And we never exchanged numbers
or anything. We weren’t even friends…
– But it was a rebound, honey. I mean, you was hurting.
It’s hard, you know. – (Ariana) And I jokingly said
to my tour manager, I was like, “I’m”– I was like,
“I’m marrying him.” – (chuckles) Wow.
– (Ariana) I was like, “I’m literally marrying him.” – It’s funny how life
works that way. – That seems like really
little girl crush. Like, “I’m gonna marry you!” Like, “I really like you!
I’m gonna do this now!” And then it’s like, oh, wait.
That’s not reality? Oh, no. – (FBE) Two months after
the appearance with Jimmy Fallon, the couple split.
Pete Davidson recently addressed the breakup on SNL.
– Yeah, I remember that. I remember where I was at
when that happened. – Hi, I’m Jonah Hill,
and I’m hosting Saturday Night Live this week with musical guest
Maggie Rogers. – Aww, I love Maggie.
– (Pete) Hey, Maggie. I’m Pete.
– (Maggie) Hey, Pete. – (Pete) You wanna get married?
– (Maggie) No. – (Pete) 0 for 3.
– (laughs) I love that he’s able
to laugh at himself. You need to be able
to do that. – Ooh! Also, yeah, he got the tattoo
covered I noticed. (laughs) – (Pete) And the last thing
I will say is I know some of you are curious
about the breakup, but the truth is
it’s nobody’s business, and sometimes things
just don’t work out, and that’s okay.
She’s a wonderful, strong person, and I genuinely wish her
all the happiness in the world. Now, please, go vote
on Tuesday, all right? – (audience cheering)
– Wow. That feels so heartfelt. – (Pete) I’m still
a great song, though! – Well, that sounded like
a bit of a struggle, but very nice. – When I saw it,
I liked it. I thought it was very classy
of Pete to do this. – It is really nobody’s business.
And I mean, if people are really crying about it,
then seek help. – (FBE) So, the relationship
between Ariana and Pete has been all over the news and social media
these last few months. – I was keeping up
with the relationship a little bit, because it’s kind of
hard to avoid when it’s all over your face
with timeline. – (FBE) So, many people were shocked
about how fast this relationship moved overall.
Within a few months of dating, they were already engaged
and had matching tattoos, only to spend a total
of four months together after they got together.
– Wait, four months?! It felt like four years. – (FBE) Do you think that they were
always doomed to break up given how fast they moved things
or was there a chance that this could’ve worked out?
– I feel like maybe there was a small chance
that they could’ve worked out, but for the most part,
I feel like they were doomed, because I know that you don’t always
have to follow the traditional parts of a relationship,
but sometimes it’s necessary, ’cause that’s how you
get to know a person. – There’s definitely a part of me
as a mom, I gotta say, that’s like (sucks in breath)
just careful. Don’t go all out there
and, you know, tattoos and songs and TV shows
and, you know… Like, what if it doesn’t work out? – I always believe that
there’s a chance for it to work out. I mean, my mom and dad, I think they got married
in six months, and they’ve been together
for 20-something years. – No, they weren’t doomed to break up
because they were moving too fast. Sometimes life in the fast lane
is good, you know? And it just happens
to work out beautifully. What really [bleep] it up
was really just Mac’s death. So, it was just bound to happen. – (FBE) Celebrity gossip has always
been a big part of a news that people intake,
whether from social media or entertainment shows.
There are countless sites dedicated to this portion
of pop culture. So, why do you think that people care
about celebrities’ personal lives? – Because, you know, listen…
(chuckles) You don’t have to look at your own life. You can be caught up
in somebody else’s. – It’s just a form of escapism
for people who don’t feel excited about their lives. They find themselves just invested
in the lives of celebrities. – I love this [bleep]. I won’t even know
who a famous person is, but I’ll read the headline
and what they did, and I’m like, “Ooh.
What this [bleep] do?” – It’s an outlet to have fun,
to take away from the bad stuff that may happen in your life.
But from a standpoint of, “Does it matter as much?”
No, it doesn’t matter. – Because of social media,
people feel especially more connected to their favorite celebrities
and the people that they look up to. So, in a sense, they feel
like they know them personally or they’re a friend. – (FBE) So finally,
similar to Ariana Grande, is there anything that you’d like
to thank your exes for? – (chuckles) Getting out of my life. – To my exes, thank you
for teaching me self-worth indirectly, because… (chuckles)
everything that you put me through made me realize that I was worth
so much more than that. – I would like to thank my exes
for all of the knowledge they’ve given me in the terms
of how to be a good girlfriend and how to be a good communicator. – I would like to thank my exes
for making who I am today, because that’s all in the past, right?
And I’m sure I learned some tricks, some fun tricks,
and some dirty tricks, and some other tricks.
I like to keep the good stuff and leave the rest somewhere else. – To Jason, thanks for being
my first kind of crush that turned into a boyfriend. To Andrew, thanks for teaching me
what’s too much in a relationship
really quickly. Paul, thanks for helping me
learn what to do after a break-up. Thank you all. NEXT! – Thank you for watching
