Blogs We Declined to Write About Ariana Grande's 'Pete Davidson' B-A-E Chord Revelation


On Monday afternoon, we learned that there might be a hidden clue embedded in the song “Pete Davidson,” Ariana Grande’s song about her ex-fiancé, Pete Davidson.

Per Glamour, it appears that a lovestruck Grande cram jammed a secret message into the song, which is not really much of a secret message in and of itself—it’s called “Pete Davidson,” it’s about a minute and change long, and the lyrics, while vague, are, um, I guess about Pete Davidson. But a New Yorker on Twitter by the name of Grace Barry looked up the guitar chords for this specific song and discovered that they are B-A-E, in a loop that repeats. B-A-E spells “bae.”

If this is intentional—and I have no reason to believe that it wasn’t—then I feel confident in saying that she was dickmatized to an extreme that I’ve yet to see before. This is a terrible thing if it was intentional, and if it wasn’t, madam, I don’t know what else to say.

Here are some headlines the Jezebel staff brainstormed about this revelation, but declined to use:

May this cursed bit of information be the last thing we have to think about relationship for the rest of 2018.
