Ariana Grande Defends Pete Davidson Engagement: Love Is Lit, Haters!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Over the weekend, Justin Bieber proposed to Hailey Baldwin after the two had only been going out again for a matter of weeks.

The parallels to Ariana Grande's engagement to Pete Davidson were obvious, since they also dated for mere weeks before Pete proposed.

When fans tried to connect the two as a pair of publicity stunts, however, Ariana was gentle but firm in quashing the rumor.

Someone tweeted the conspiracy theory, perhaps in jest, that Ariana and Justin's mutual manager was the culprit behind the warp-speed engagements.

"First ariana get engaged to pete Davidson now Justin bieber to hailey Bladwin," a fan tweeted. "The devil works hard but Scooter Braun works harder."

The line about the devil works hard has become something of a meme of late. Largely because it is often funny.

Ariana was not amused by the suggestion that her romance was masterminded by her manager.

"You do realize we are human beings who love and have lives …… right …. ?" Ariana asked.

Ariana continued, objecting to the characterization of her manager, adding: "And that scooter is a wonderful human being too who cares first n foremost ab our health and happiness?"

Scooter has, in the past, very famously put the health and well-being of performers ahead of (short-term) business interests.

"Love is lit," Ariana says, adding that "S--t happens."

She's right about both of those things.

"I hope to god it happens to you too," Ariana adds, taking the sting out of her admonishment. "U deserve it."

That is very sweet.

As we mentioned, over the weekend, Justin and Hailey got engaged.

Though there had been rumors that Hailey wanted to marry Justin, they had only been dating again for a few weeks.

And the last time that they dated was, what, 2016? That feels like at least a decade ago.

But over the weekend, in front of a camera-less crowd at a resort, Justin popped the question to Hailey. 

Since then, the world has gotten a few glimpses of what is widely believed to be Hailey's engagement ring.

We're not sure how Scooter Braun is supposed to have masterminded all of this, since it seems very clear that these relationships are real and not manufactured as a PR stunt.

Do they imagine that he manipulated his client Justin into proposing to Hailey?

How, exactly, does that boost the Biebs' career, which is seemingly on hiatus ever since he ended his tour last year?

And how exactly do people suppose that Scooter tricked Pete Davidson into proposing to Ariana?

It wouldn't take much. Oh, wait, it wouldn't take anything, because Pete and Ariana are crazy about each other.

Sometimes, love happens.

Not everyone is going to fall in love. Some people are just unlucky. Others are aromantic and just don't experience romantic love or even the desire for romance.

But when people do find themselves engaged to people they love, fans should support them (just as they should support them if they end the relationship).

Remember, folks -- unless someone might be in danger, someone else's personal choices are not your business. You can celebrate them all that you like.

Coming up with conspiracy theories about them or trying to tell them that they're making a mistake isn't going to go over well with them.

Try to be as loving and supportive as Ariana is. She's full of love, even when Pete makes unfunny mistakes.
