Davidson of SNL wishing Grande all the happiness in the world and complimenting her on her strong personality.
That the show didn't do more with the breakup was somewhat surprising, sure, but the real surprise was that Grande dropped a new song just minutes before "SNL" started - and it mentions Davidson by name. In her lyrics for "Thank U, Next", Grande not only addresses her breakup with Davidson, but also references Miller, as well as her other high profile romances with rapper, Big Sean and dancer, Ricky Alvarez.

During a sketch with guest actress Candice Bergen, the "Murphy Brown" star ordered a drink called a Pete Davidson.
Grande and Davidson announced their breakup October 14 after a four-month engagement.
While TMZ reported that record label representatives for Ariana told the online publication that it's "not a diss track", according to her response after the promo, it's definitely a public suggestion or nudge for Pete to keep his mouth closed. Both tweets were later deleted. A fan addressed Grande writing, "wow [Ariana], you've been teasing Thank U, Next for years", linking to a video of Ariana using the phrase in an interview dating years back.
