A Waiter Put On Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" As Pete Davidson Dined


And Pete Davidson isn't happy about it

UPDATE 12/3/18 1:38pm: Following this incident, Pete Davidson shared a message to Instagram about how he has "been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months" and "has never said a word about anyone or anything."


A New York City waiter had the perfect song ready for when Pete Davidson happened to dine at a restaurant he works at. As shown in a now-viral tweet, Ariana Grande's "thank u, next" became the soundtrack of Davidson's meal at Chelsea's Cafeteria.

Twitter user Steven Thomas, who captured the moment on video, claims Davidson was on a date in the caption, though there is no other proof that Davidson has hopped back into the dating game so soon after the end of his engagement to Grande. If it was a date, we hope his guest had a sense of humor and good music taste (or else it would have been sooo awkward). TBH, if I was the waiter, I would have kept a playlist going, following "thank u, next" up with "pete davidson."

For all you skeptics, the viral moment definitely wasn't just a coincidence. Thomas confirmed that his waiter, who also was serving Davidson, told him that he couldn't resist playing the track when he realized who his customer was.

Davidson does not appear to be at all shaken by the song choice in the video.

On Friday, Grande released the highly anticipated visuals to the single, in which she pastes pics of Davidson into her Mean Girls-inspired burn book and scribbles "sry I dipped" near her former beau's name.

I'm cackling

Last year, Balenciaga released bright red square-toed mules which bore a striking resemblance to McDonald's french fry cartons. Now, the chain has fired back at the designer, threatening to release its own version of the shoes.

McDonald's Sweden posted a photo to its Instagram of a person wearing actual McDonald's fry cartons as shoes, and honestly, if there weren't yellow M's printed onto them, I'd have a hard time distinguishing them from the Balenciagas from a distance. Though the post doesn't directly reference the Balenciaga shoes, one can only assume that's who they are trolling.

McDonald's version actually makes for some pretty fly slip-ons, if you ask me. Good thing the Swedish branch of Mickey D's seems to be considering releasing the shoes if the post receives enough attention. The caption of the Instagram post translates to, "If we get 103042 likes we release these for real," though it only has about 17,000 as of publish time. These would likely cost much less than the Balenciaga shoes, which cost $545.

Internet, do your thing. I want a pair.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.
