Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson aren’t shy about making public proclamations of love for each other. From matching tattoos to an endless array of Instagram PDAs, the two really want the world to know exactly how they feel about one another. So it’s no surprise that the newly engaged duo went all out for their red-carpet debut at Monday’s MTV VMAs 2018.
Fans who were able to take their eyes off the couple’s non-stop love fest noticed an intriguing detail on Davidson’s bracelet: small beads that listed the initials “AGD.” If you’ve been following the romantic chronicles of Pete and Ariana, you’ll recognize that those initials stand for Ariana Grande-Davidson, which as Ariana revealed in a recent interview, will be her initials after they’re married.
“Yeah, [I’m going to hyphenate it to Ariana Grande-Davidson],” Grande told Ebro Darden during a Beats 1 interview on Friday. So what does that mean for her stage name? As it turns out, Grande’s put a lot of thought into that too. “I don’t know. I feel like I’d eventually like to be just Ariana,” she added. “Isn’t that sick? I feel like it’s got a ring to it. But also Grande, I have to keep Grande because of my grandpa. I think of him with everything I do in it, and he was so proud of our name … I’m going keep it. Never mind. We’ll talk later. I have a lot of decisions to make.”
One decision that she has made is the timeline for her upcoming nuptials. While some fans might suggest that Pete’s bracelet means the couple has already tied the knot, Ariana made it clear that their wedding is still over five months away. “Less than five: Years? Yeah,” Grande said. “Months more, years less.”
Early in the show, Ariana had already picked up the award for Best Pop Video for her hit single “No Tears Left to Cry,” using the opportunity to tell Pete how she feels about him. “Thank you for existing,” she said.
