Pete Davidson’s “I’m Just Pete” SNL Sketch Defined
“When I’m high, I do things like call up Colin Jost and say, ‘Homie, we should buy a boat,” Pete continues, referencing when Pete and Colin left followers shocked final yr after shopping for a decommissioned ferry for $280,100 in an public sale.
And whereas the boat state of affairs is a reasonably hilarious anecdote, it turned out to be only the start of Pete’s shoutouts to his private life in “I’m Just Pete” — which involves a head when he sings about his feud with Ye.
He says, “People online still call me Skete because of a guy whose name I can’t say legally” as an image of the rapper briefly flashes onscreen.
Kim and Pete ended up splitting in August 2022 after 9 months of relationship. Earlier than Kim, Pete had dated the likes of Ariana Grande, Kate Beckinsale, and Kaia Gerber, and since their breakup, he has been linked to Emily Ratajkowski and Chase Sui Wonders and is at the moment relationship Madelyn Cline.
“My dating life is not discreet. I generate tons of publicity for everything except my comedy,” he sings.

“I’m mentally ill and I’m on drugs,” he quips. He then makes gentle of his frequent visits to rehab, which he most not too long ago checked into in June after reportedly taking ketamine nearly every single day for 4 years.

After “I’m Just Pete” reaches its climax, with Pete being joined by a number of different variations of himself, Pete has another trick up his sleeve within the sketch’s outro.
In arguably one of the vital stunning references to his private life in the entire sketch, the tune ends with Pete driving his automotive into the aspect of Barbie’s Dreamhouse and exclaiming, “Awh, not again!”
