Pete Davidson has performed his first stand-up comedy show since his troubling social media posts depicting suicidal thoughts.

He opened up about his relationship with pop singer Ariana Grande, his former fiancé. Since their much-publicised split, Pete has been relatively quiet about the singer, aside from his worrying Instagram posts.

The Saturday Night Live star performed a set in Boston on New Year's Eve, and you can bet the Thank, U Next star came up in conversation.

 

He first made a quip regarding their break-up a few weeks ago, Ari clapped back with; "For somebody who claims to hate relevancy you sure love clinging to it, huh. Thank u. next."

The topic of break-up songs was brought up by Davidson during his show, with the comedian commenting that;

"Here's the thing about the breakup song. Usually breakup songs you know who it's about but you don't really know. That G named all of us," he spoke to the crowd, blatantly referring to the number one song Thank U, Next.

"Bam. She named all of us. And then, tells us, yeah, he has a big dick." He continued. 

"So I start playing it. And we're all like, "Ehhh… it's ok." We're like "Okay, it's not that bad for you."

"It made me see how ugly people can get, and how cool people can be," he reportedly said, according to Us Weekly. 

The publication claims that Pete carried on with his Ariana conversation, saying that most artists don't actually name their exes in their songs.

He joked;

"Not this wonderful lady. This diabolical genius named all of us." He also said that the smash hit song premiered right before SNL, at which point he told his cast-mates and friends:

"We all have to listen to this song and you all have to look at me, it’s gonna be rough."

Yikes. He later described crying with his mother on the kitchen table after hearing the song.

Well, break-ups rarely end without at least one party feeling heartbroken.

At least Pete admitted that the song is catchy, he's trying to see the brighter side of 2019 by the sound of things…

Last week the entertainment industry was sent into further shock when news emerged that, for years, Louis CK had been abusing his position of power.

The acclaimed stand-up comedian was accused of masturbating in front of multiple women in numerous separate incidents over the course of his career – allegations which Louis ultimately admitted to in a statement soon after the news broke.

And while many considered Louis' apology, which he posted to social media, distinctly lacking in sincerity, one high-profile name is struggling to reconcile the man in the headlines with her long-term friend and colleague.

Sarah Silverman decided to address the matter of sexual assault during a monologue on her I Love You, America show this week, and felt compelled to comment on her friend's involvement in the culture of misogyny.

Insisting that examination of the matter was necessary and something to be welcomed, Sarah acknowledged that the onslaught of reports meant that it was very likely you would learn something about a person you respect which will leave you devastated.

"Let's just say it, I'm talking about Louis," she said. "And I've of course been asked to comment, and in full honesty, I really, really, really don't want to. I wish I could sit this one out, but then I remembered something I said on this very show that if it's mentionable, it's manageable."

"Full disclosure, I'm still processing all this sh*t, but here's where I'm at on it, as of this moment. It could change tomorrow and if it does, I'll keep you posted," she said.

"One of my best friends of over 25 years, Louis C.K., masturbated in front of women. He wielded his power with women in f**ked-up ways. Sometimes to the point where they left comedy entirely."

"I can couch this with heartwarming stories of our friendship and what a great dad he is, but that's totally irrelevant isn't it?" she continued. "Yes. It is. It's a real mindf**k," Sarah admitted.

"I love Louis. But Louis did these things. Both of those statements are true," she said. "So, I just keep asking myself, 'Can you love someone who did bad things? Can you still love them?'"

While Sarah feels a desperate sense of sadness over her friend's decision to exploit and degrade women, she insists that her loyalties lie with Louis' victims.

"So, I hope it’s OK if I am at once very angry for the women he wronged — and the culture that enabled it — and also sad, because he's my friend," she continued.

"But I believe with all my heart that this moment in time is essential. It's vital that people are held accountable for their actions, no matter who they are. We need to be better. We will be better. I can’t f**king wait to be better."

In the wake of the allegations, Louis wrote: "The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly."

"I have been remorseful of my actions. And I’ve tried to learn from them. And run from them. Now I’m aware of the extent of the impact of my actions."

After being dropped by his agents and television networks, Louis CK has had his upcoming film dropped.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, distribution company Orchards will not be moving forward with plans to release Louis CK's upcoming movie. 

The movie, titled I Love You, Daddy, follows the story of a relationship between a seventeen-year-old and a man in his late sixties, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.

The move came after CK admitted to committing sexual misconduct against as many as five women.

The women alleged that the comedian masturbated in front of them against their will.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Orchard confirmed that it 'will not be moving forward with the release.'

The film was due out on November 17 in selected theatres.

'There is never a place for the behaviour detailed in these allegations,' the company said, confirming that the move was made due to CK's behaviour. 

The premier of the movie in NYC was cancelled due to the allegations.

In the aftermath of admitting that he did commit sexual misconduct against five women, comedian Louis CK has been dropped by a number of companies. 

Networks have severed their professional relationship with CK, and he has been removed from upcoming projects. 

In a statement last night, the comic said that he had in fact masturbated in front of a number of women.

'Today, FX Networks and FX Productions are ending our association with Louis C.K.,” the network said in a statement. '

'We are cancelling the overall deal between FX Productions and his production company, Pig Newton.'

'He will no longer serve as executive producer or receive compensation on any of the four shows we were producing with him—Better Things, Baskets, One Mississippi and The Cops.'

Netflix have also announced that they will not be making his stand up comedy special. 

Publicist Lewis Kay, who represented CK, has also severed ties with the comic. 

He has also lost his management company, 3 Arts Entertainment. 

'We are committed to ensuring a safe and secure environment for our staff, clients and the community at large, said the company, according to Deadline.

'We are doing a full internal review regarding this situation and are taking additional steps to strengthen our processes and procedures while engaging with our staff to address any concerns about harassment or abuse of power.'

Comedian Louis CK faced allegations of sexual misconduct this week from five separate women. 

Now, the comedian has come forward with a statement admitting that the claims made by the women are true. 

While the victim's experiences differ, most reported that the inappropriate sexual behaviour from CK involved being forced to watch the comedian masturbate. 

'These stories are true,' he admits in the statement. 

'At the time, I said to myself that what I did was O.K. because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true.'

'But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them.'

'The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly,' he continues. 

'I have been remorseful of my actions. And I’ve tried to learn from them. And run from them.'

'Now I’m aware of the extent of the impact of my actions. I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position.'
