A few months ago, Ariana Grande fell hard for Pete Davidson.
Then, this week on Ellen, Ariana Grande nearly fell hard while singing about Pete Davidson.
The beloved pop star took to the aforementioned talk show host's stage on Wednesday morning in order to sing, for the first time in front of actual people, the new tune "Thank U, Next."
This single has received plenty of attention of late because it was written about multiple ex-boyfriend of Grande's, including Davidson, to whom she was engaged for most of the summer.
It was also released just a short time before Davidson commented on the couple's break-up during a segment on Weekend Update just a few days ago.
Decked out in all white while belting out the anthem alongside friends Tayla Parx and Victoria Monet, Grande may have been taking a slight jab at Davidson by making it look like she was at a wedding.
Then, she stepped up on a chair, sang a bit more, stepped down… stumbled and nearly crashed to the floor.
"Oh my God!" you can hear Ariana say in the video featured here, even though she did recover and went on to complete the performance.
Later on, the rendition grew especially emotional for Grande during a verse about her parents.
"One day I’ll walk down the aisle. Holding hands with my mama,” Ariana sang, through tears. "I’ll be thanking my dad. ‘Cause she grew from the drama.”
Grande, of course, has been through a ton over the past couple years.
She was on stage in Manchester when a bomb exploded in the arena and killed over 20 fans.
Her serious ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, then recently died of a drug overdose.
Grande was engaged to Davidson at the time of this tragic death, only for that relationship to conclude and for the exes to end up on terrible terms.
Just as she does in the footage here, however, Grande continues to push through.
Check out her debut performance of "Thank U, Next" right now!
According to a surprising new report, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have something in common aside from undying affection for one another.
They also have matching face tattoos.
Tattoo artist Keith McCurdy, better known by his nickname “Bang Bang,” tells Page Six that he can confirm the so-called works of art himself…
… because he’s the one who drew them on the singer and his midel wife.
“They each got a tattoo,” McCurdy says. “Justin’s tattoo is on his face, and I haven’t seen any photos of it — so he’s doing a good job of laying low.”
Added Mr. Bang:
“It’s really thin and delicate. And [it’s] also not a traditional couples’ tattoo . . . I don’t want to give away what it is until press gets a hold of it.”
How interesting, right?
That’s one word for it at least.
Bieber is apparently changing his look all over the place these days, considering he recently shaved all the hair off his head as well.
The tattoo artist, who is responsible for many other designs across Bieber’s body, added to the aforementioned outlet that this face tattoo is near Justin’s eyebrow and is comprised of “little words.”
Perhaps it’s an ode or a reference of some kind to Baldwin?
Gotta imagine some paparazzo will get close enough soon to give us all a solid glimpse.
Bieber and Baldwin shocked the world by getting engaged this summer
They then shocked the world once again a few weeks ago by getting married in a courthouse in New York City.
There was some debate at the time over whether or not Hailey and Justin actually tied the knot or merely obtained a marriage license — but Baldwin told a fan last month that it was the former.
We can still expect the famous couple to hold a larger ceremony and reception at some point in the future, however.
For the most part, however, Bieber and Baldwin have remained pretty quiet ever since they got back together.
There are some questions over whether Bieber will even record any music ever again — or if he’ll just dedicate himself to his religion and his relationship.
We suppose time will tell.
In the meantime, let’s all speculate and wonder:
What the heck could this face tattoo be?
And is there any chance at all it looks good?!?
Alec Baldwin has spent the past two years or so punching back at Donald Trump by portraying the President on Saturday Night Live.
But now the actor has been arrested for a different sort of punch back.
As in: Baldwin has been arrested for punching some dude in the face.
According to TMZ and NBC News, the veteran actor got into an altercation with his alleged unnamed victim around 10th Street and 5th Avenue in New York City on Friday.
Insiders tell the aforementioned celebrity gossip website that Baldwin had a friend holding a parking spot for him…
… but that this other fella dared to swoop in and take it.
(It’s unclear at the moment just how the friend was holding the spot for Baldwin.)
Baldwin took exception to what he saw as a parking spot heist, screamed at the perpetrator and then slugged him in the face.
The victim, reportedly a 49-year old male, was then taken to a nearby hospital.
And Baldwin was placed under arrest.
The actor lives in the area and has a well-earned reputation for being a hothead.
The only real surprise in this story is that the man on the receiving end of Baldwin’s fist was not a photographer.
Over the past few years, Alec has mixed it up several times with paparazzi members in the streets of the Big Apple.
He was arrested in May of 2014 for confronting a police officer…
… and he hurled gay slurs at a different photographer in between these incidents, stirring up understandable controversy and drama in the process.
Accompanied by his wife and his daughter during this latter confrontation, which took place almost exactly four years ago, Baldwin referred to his then-nemesis as a “c-cksucking f-g.”
It was a very low moment for the outspoken Liberal.
He apologized afterward and has remained relatively calm ever since. Until now, that is.
Not long after news of Baldwin’s arrest went public, President Trump was asked about the incident and showed surprising restraint by responding with a simple:
“I wish him luck.”
Neither Baldwin nor anyone on his team has spoken out yet about the arrest.
The actor has four children under the age of five with his wife Hilaria, as well as an adult daughter with first wife, Kim Basinger.
He once labeled that daughter, Ireland, as a “pig” in an infamous voicemail he left for her as a child.
But Ireland and her dad have since made up and the former has even defended her dad on Twitter, saying he deserved credit for dealing with what she called “anger management issues.”
He may now need to have that credit revoked, however.

Bill Cosby is two weeks into his three-to-ten year sentence and has started to really get a look at his life behind bars.
His larger-than-life personality is reportedly not meshing well with his fellow inmates.
A new report says that one prisoner got so fed up with him that he chucked the chicken patty from his sandwich at him, striking Cosby in the face.
RadarOnline reports that Cosby was on the receiving end of a projectile patty of the chicken variety.
“Mr. Cosby cracked a joke to another inmate by the infirmary,” their insider reports.
The source continues: “and that inmate was mad enough to take his chicken out of the bun and plunge it at him.”
The report notes that prison food isn’t exactly served in a buffet, so there must have been a great deal of ire behind the move.
“The way I see it,” the insider says. “You have to be very angry to throw your meal in jail because I don’t think you get seconds.”
We would imagine not.
(Disclaimer: these chicken patties are probably a lot nicer than the institutional chicken disk that allegedly struck the disgraced comedian)
The alleged incident comes on the heels of a report that said that Cosby was enjoying the chicken patty.
“Mr. Cosby told us last week that the chicken patty was the best meal he had so far at SCI Phoenix … so that says a lot,” the source notes.
We already mentioned a report that Cosby has earned a nickname and some undeserved respect from fellow inmates.
“They’re calling him the ‘OG,'” the insider claimed. “Lingo for ‘original gangster.”
Clearly, that respect was not universal.
There was another report that said that Cosby tried pudding in prison, and that it was apparently not to his liking.
“He told us on the phone over the weekend ‘I was promoting THIS garbage?!’” The source claimed. “It tastes like something you give a lizard!”
Cosby was famous in the ’90s as the face of jello and pudding advertisements.
“We were caught by surprise,” the insider stated. “We never asked him: ‘Hey, Mr. Cosby, have you ever tried pudding or Jell-O?’”
“I never saw him and I don’t think anybody else ever saw him eating pudding or Jell-O,” the source admitted.
The insider concluded: “but I was pretty damn shocked when he told us he tried it and it wasn’t what he expected.”
Of course, a conflicting report casts into doubt everything that we’ve heard.
TMZ spoke to someone at the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections.
“This did NOT happen,” their insider said forcefully of the chicken patty incident.
“And,” the source continued. “I am unhappy with anyone who is reporting such fake news.”
What’s more is that Cosby has allegedly had no contact whatsoever with fellow inmates while he is evaluated by prison staff.
Cosby is two weeks in and, no matter whose report you believe, it seems safe to say that he’s no longer living his best life.
He wants out of prison — and we’re not referring to the goofy claim that Cosby is planning an elaborate prison break.
No, we mean that his legal team is fighting in court.
They are appealing, trying to throw out his sentence, his conviction, and even the judge. We wouldn’t hold our breath.
His wife, Camille Cosby, is said to be demanding that the judge be investigated. It would be a surprise if her efforts bear fruit.
Cosby has been sentenced to prison, and he may even spend the rest of his life behind bars.
But his conviction for the drugging and sexual assault of Andrea Constand is just a drop in the bucket considering that 60 women came forward to accuse him of similar crimes.
Though some of these survivors may feel vindicated that he is behind bars, very few if any of them will also get their day in court.
Some waited “too long” to report for the legal system to accept. Others are unable to corroborate.
Many feel that Cosby’s incarceration is a victory — but a hollow one.
Perhaps the story, true or not, of the chicken patty incident will bring a smile to a few faces. That’s worth something, at least.
