For his act, Pete Davidson Presents: The Best Friends, the Saturday Night Live comedian, who first appeared on the sketch show in 2014, introduced his pop-punk/rapper best friend to the stage. But not before sharing all about the time they both lived at his “mom’s house”.
“This next guy that’s coming to the stage, we celebrated Christmas together in 2018 and we both looked at each other from across the table,” Davidson said, adding: “We were at my mom’s house, we were living together at my mom’s house, in her basement.”
“I remember we were looking at each other like, ‘It’s OK, our careers are f***ing over it’s fine,’” he continued. “We had fun it’s all good who would have thought we could do anything, right?’”
But as we now know, that’s not quite how it all worked out. Which Pete highlighted by saying — “this guy now has two No. 1 albums in a row.” Adding, “he’s I think one of the biggest names you can get,” before welcoming MGK to the stage.
