In case you haven’t heard, seen on Instagram, or witnessed with your own two eyes at the 2018 MTV VMAs, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are pretty into each other. Since they first started dating and became social media official, the PDA-loving pair have been unafraid to exchange flirty messages and make out in full view of their fans and the paparazzi alike. This week, Ari called in to friend and frequent collaborator Nicki Minaj’s Queen Radio show, on Apple Music’s Beats 1 station, and opened up about how exactly that seemingly never-ending stream of PDA first began.
According to Entertainment Tonight, at one point, Nicki asked if Ari remembered her first kiss with her fiancé. “It was so sick, it was so dope,” she said. “It was so cute, he asked my permission to kiss me.” Nicki then asked if the kiss had been “sensual,” to which Ari reportedly replied, “It wasn’t, like, too naughty of a kiss, but, definitely, there was so much…you know…in there, you know? It was really sweet, but it was also really sexy.”
Nicki was also able to attest to the strength of Ari and Pete’s connection. “Y’all have the same sense of humor. I know with girls like you and me who like the laugh, it’s so important,” she said. Ariana agreed, saying, “We’re like the boy and girl version of each other, except he’s 17 feet tall and I’m four inches tall.” Accurate.
Earlier this week, Nicki shared some more love for her pal’s relationship. When Ari posted photos from Pete’s new Variety cover shoot on Instagram, Nicki commented, “Omg @ the most perfect man on the planet. wtf does he have a brother btch??!” Ari, sadly, had to break the news to Nicki that Pete does not, in fact, have a brother, then went on to jokingly rub her “perfect” boyfriend in the rapper’s face. “no but i’m the luckiest bitch in the galexy [sic] i’ll tell u dat.”
