"music lasts forever," says Ariana of her decision to immortalize her fiance in a song.
Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have already inked up their bodies in each other's honor, but Grande is now taking things a step further: she's giving Davidson his very own song title on her upcoming Sweetener album. While the track was originally set to be titled simply "pete," with the arrival of the full tracklist last Friday it was revealed that Grande was including her fiance's first and last name, a decision she explained to a fan on Twitter Monday.
"What made you change 'Pete' to 'pete davidson'," asked the fan, to which Grande replied, "i like the way it looks. i love his name and i love him. music lasts forever. it’ll outlive any tattoo, any memory, any anything, even myself so i want my love for him and how i feel to be a part of that."
Strangely enough, Grande's declaration that she and Davidson's love is as eternal as music itself comes after a report that Davidson had covered up his tattoo of Ariana's bunny ears logo. Whatever that may mean, it appears that the wedding is far from off, at least for the time being.
While it's true that song titles in the past have been more permanent than a tattoo, Kanye West has proved that the streaming era has made albums perpetually edit-able. If Grande and Davidson were to have a crushing breakup, the singer could probably edit the name of the song if she really wanted to. Those tattoos, however, will require either a laser or some additional ink.
Sweetener, Ariana's fourth album, will see release on August 17th.
