Fact: Breakups will make you do crazy things. Take, for instance, Pete Davidson’s new blue hair, awkward jokes about his and Ariana Grande’s speedy engagement, and now, most tragically, a reported lack of big d*ck energy (BDE).
After Pete asked singer Maggie Rogers to marry him shortly after meeting her for a Saturday Night Live promo—it was supposed to be funny, you guys—someone who is supposedly close to him but sucks at keeping secrets told Entertainment Tonight that Pete’s BDE is rapidly waning and so he’s trying to “overcompensate” by joking about his past relationships.

The source, who probably shouldn’t be trusted with anyone’s deepest darkest secrets, told the outlet:
His friends think he is embarrassed by the breakup and that he has to overcompensate by making jokes about their relationship, because, days before they split, he was saying they would never break up.
To be fair, that would be pretty awkward.
Ariana also seemingly clapped back at Pete for his SNL joke and tweeted, “for somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh,” which definitely isn’t helping his confidence.
Apparently, Pete is trying to recover and get back to his confident self by spending time with his mom. There’s no official timeline for how long it typically takes BDE to fully return to normal after a breakup, but hopefully the recovery doesn’t involve a ton of cringe-y jokes like that SNL one.
