Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson: The Millennial Version of Angelina and Bill Bob Thornton
If you mention Angelina Jolie now, the first thing that pops in your head, aside from her signature pout or acting roles, would probably be something involving her grand humanitarian efforts, her awe-inspiring relationship with Brad Pitt (R.I.P Brangelina), or her status as an amazing mom of six kids. If you mentioned her in the late 90s, though, while she still would’ve been that gorgeous actress with the full lips, that amazing actress, she also would’ve been that gorgeous, pouty actress that had a vial of her husband’s blood around her neck. Yep. Blood.
Many younger people don’t remember Scandalous Angie (Scandgelina), but she was there. And she. Was. Wild. Her relationship with Billy Bob Thornton is quite possibly one of the greatest, most obsessive relationships in American history. Some people were disgusted of them. Some were jealous, and some didn’t know what the hell to feel. After only two months, two freaking months, they got married in Vegas. This was followed not only by the blood necklaces, but brashly public displays of affection, including an interview on the red carpet where Billy Bob Thornton states (and this is verbatim, people) “we f*cked in the car on the way here” while Angelina is very obnoxiously kissing him. They were loud about their relationship. They were public. They were all over the damn place. And years later, we might just be seeing a resurgence of this obsessive relationship with new couple Ariana Grande, and Pete Davidson.
Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have been public for all of a few weeks and in that time span they have: gotten matching tattoos, moved in together, and gotten engaged—all very similar to the relationship of Billy and Angelina.
They’ve also been very vocal about their relationship. This is way different than Ariana Grande’s previous relationships: most recently rapper Mac Miller, but other people include rapper, Big Sean, and singer, Nathan Syke. I mean, come on, Ariana Grande just recently talked about Pete’s d*ck size on Twitter! If you scroll through either one of their social medias, you’ll very quickly see just how much they talk about and talk to each other. The pictures they’ve posted are also pretty damn intimate! All in a matter of a month! Their relationship is one hell of a whirlwind, passionate, over the top romance and the world is either greedily eating it up, or really damn tired of it. Seth Rogen himself, called the two out on their PDA, claiming he was getting sick of it. Fans have also attacked Davidson, claiming, because he has borderline personality disorder, he shouldn’t be in a relationship at all. Both he and Ariana Grande have made statements to the haters, Davidson with a reply against people calling him out on his mental health, and Ariana claiming she’s too in love not to brag about it.
It’s a fiery romance so reminiscent of Angelina and Billy Bob Thornton, I’m waiting for them to get the needles out, so they can get the vials going! Whether their relationship soars or sinks, one thing’s for sure—their relationship will be one for the books, and I, for one, will be front and center paying attention because I absolutely love it!
