Ariana Grande covered up her ring finger tattoo for Pete Davidson with a bandaid

Eagle-eyed people who saw a video of Ariana Grande’s performance for A Very Wicked Halloween (that’s below) noticed one important detail. She had covered up a tattoo on her left ring finger with a bandaid. (A Very Wicked Halloween is a special with Broadway stars Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth which will air on NBC October 29th.) That’s one of the many tattoos she got for Pete, a much more literal one as it’s his name. Pete has the initials “AG” on his thumb. He still had that tattoo in paparazzi photos taken yesterday. As I mentioned yesterday, we just saw that Pete had the bunny ear tattoo for Ariana on his neck transformed into a heart. That was a harbinger of their breakup. Now I’m wondering how Ariana will be able to perform many of her new songs. There’s the song “Pete Davidson” of course, she’ll probably skip that one, but also “Bed” and I’m sure a lot of the other songs on her new album were inspired by their relationship. As for Pete we heard yesterday that he was the one staying in the NY penthouse Ariana pays for but that’s no longer the case. E! reports that he’s staying with family and that he’s doing ok, all things considered.

A source close to Davidson told E! News he’s “staying with family in New York right now.”

The source provided some insight as to how the comedian is coping with the end of his engagement and who he’s leaning on for support. “Pete’s doing fine,” the insider told E! News. “He has a strong support system of family and friends around him that are keeping him laughing.”

They added, “While Pete’s focusing on himself, he always wishes the best for Ari.”

I like that Ariana returned the engagement ring right away and that she covered up her tattoo for Pete. Plus she’s the one who broke up with him. These are all good signs that she’s ready to move on. I really hope she does that. She didn’t take a break from posting to Instagram as she said she was going to though. She has a bunch of stories up with videos of her pet pig, Piggy Smalls, along with some photos. Maybe that’s why she deleted the Instagram story saying she needed time off. She knew it wouldn’t last.

In this video you can see the bandaid on her left hand


From the videos of Piggy Smalls on her stories it looks like she’s staying in a hotel, but it’s hard to tell.

    Can a “normal” person bring a pet pig into a hotel?

    • Manic Pixie says:

      You can bring a dog to a hotel, why not a pig? She has mentioned it is a therapy animal as well so she might have an actual certificate for that.

      • Kerfuffle says:

        That’s not correct. You’re thinking of a Service Animal, which takes extensive training. This baby pig is definitely not a Service Animal. This would be an “Emotional Support Animal” which a psychiatrist could prescribe, and while she can take pig (if prescribed) into her next permanent housing, that doesn’t count hotels unless they already allow animals. But likely with the amount that Ariana would pay at that hotel, and for a high profile client, they would make an exception. People get a lot of stuff wrong about Service Animals/Therapy Animals/Emotional Support Animals.

        Funny enough, when Tara Reid was flashing her “registration card” for her dog, that was just garbage. She COULD have had her dog on the plane, IF she was showing an Rx from her psychiatrist. Otherwise she was just bringing a dog onto a plane and calling it a Support dog.

      • me says:

        So would a snake be ok too? What are the rules here? You’re telling me someone could bring a python in to a hotel and say it’s their “therapy animal” as long as they have a certificate? I don’t think it’s that simple (different rules for celebs than us normal folks though). Or maybe I’m wrong.

      • Kerfuffle says:

        If you read what I wrote above, an Emotional Support Animal needs to be prescribed. That’s not just waving around a certificate. And it doesn’t apply to hotels, just airplanes and places where someone actually LIVES.

        And Therapy Animals are something totally different. They provide comfort to members of the public, and they have to pass a rigorous test in order to be designated a Therapy Animal.

      • me says:

        @ Kerfuffle

        My comment was actually for Manic Pixie. I did read your comment and I am aware one needs a prescription. What I wanted to know was is there a list of animals that is deemed OK. I mean that pig Ariana has is going to weight 100 pounds soon enough. She won’t be able to carry it around. I wonder how many hotels would allow a 100 pound pig?

      • Kerfuffle says:

        I see. Well, technically just about any animal *could* be prescribed as an ESA. But to be a Therapy Animal they’d have to be smart enough to pass the test, so no, you wouldn’t have a snake (or likely a pig) as a Therapy Animal. It’s actually pretty rigorous.

      • me says:


        That’s very interesting. Thanks for the insight !

    • Jane says:

      If you spend a fortune on an expensive suite and give them access to a credit card that would easily cover any and all damages incurred, yeah, pretty much.

  2. HK9 says:

    And this is why you shouldn’t celebrate young love with a tattoo.

    • holly hobby says:

      Yup but at least it’s small. Imagine if one of them had a back tattoo of the other’s face!

  3. Kerfuffle says:

    Are we going to talk about the fact that there aren’t “mini pigs” in the same way that there are mini dogs? That pig will still end up at like 75 pounds at the minimum. I hope Arianna will still think it’s super cute then.

    • BB says:

      And by posting all of these photos of her adorable piglet, how many people are going to think teacup pigs are real and get one themselves? She needs to be educating people on what that pig is eventually going to look like and be, not encouraging more ignorance.

  4. ...otaku fairy says:

    She rarely ever wears green- I don’t think I’ve ever seen her in this color. It looks good on her.

  5. Em says:

    I know he’s not a popular guy around here, but i actually feel bad for him. If he was handsome i feel like people would have far more sympathy for him, it seems like people just thought he wasn’t “good enough” for him and enjoys the idea of her breaking up with him..
    People talk about her struggles but he lost his dad at 7 in 9/11 and has a chronic illness and has struggled with mental health issues. I hope he is ok.

    • babsjohnson says:

      I think he is handsome even if a little goofy-looking. I like his smile, it’s charming. But some of the things he said…the worse being about the groping…NO. Good thing she broke up with him, that was the right thing to do.

    • Maisie says:

      Davidson is unfunny and annoying, and whatever “hardship” he’s had in his life (which he brings up quite a bit) doesn’t mitigate that, nor does his constant flogging of his relationship with Grande (thirsty and ridiculous). Unfunny and annoying stand on their own. Why the hell is he still on SNL? He doesn’t deserve to be there (nor does Heidi Gardner, TBH – she’s Davidson’s female counterpart: unfunny and annoying).

  6. Yes Doubtful says:

    I don’t think she knows what she wants, which is why it’s good that she is single right now. I hope she takes some time to grieve and work on herself. I just don’t think it’s a good thing when people jump from one serious relationship to another.

  7. Jenni says:

    He is a comedian!!!!! He is very good at his craft. Bold, blunt to the point and definitely not disclosing personal information. And it’s funny!!!! How about Lisa Lamponelli….. (spelling?)
