And if there's anything Ariana Grande is good at, it's making the most of two weeks' time.

The Saturday Night Live comedian got on air with freshly dyed hair as the show returned from a two-week hiatus.

As Davidson joined Michael Che on Weekend Update to talk about the midterm elections, he weaved in a joke about having to return home.

Pete went on to say this about the split: "And the last thing I'll say, I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is, it's nobody's business".

"For somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh", Grande tweeted. He called her "a wonderful, strong person" and wished her the best. Despite the fact her successful album Sweetener was released in August, the songstress is already in the studio working on her next. But he also had a few words to say about the aftermath of his breakup. In responses to her fans on Twitter, Grande revealed that "thank u, next" would be both the title of a song and the album it would appear on, and the song would come first.

At the start of the almost three and half-minute track, the 21-year-old singer-songwriter gets right to it and addresses her relationships with Big Sean, Richard "Ricky" Alvarez, Mac Miller, and her former fiancé Pete Davidson. Wish I could say thank you to Malcolm.

The new track references a number of Ariana's former loves, including Pete and her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, who died in September from a suspected overdose.
