If there’s one thing young comedian Pete Davidson has shown Hollywood through his many high-profile relationships (he almost married Ariana Grande, and caused a scandal by dating Kate Beckinsale, who is 20 years older), his successful stint on SNL and his controversial but well-received movie career, is that every time he seems to fulfill a purpose, he trades it for something even more complicated. It seems that the boy born on Staten Island in 1993 just can’t get enough.
After a tremendous uproar caused by his (surprisingly formal) romantic relationship with Kim Kardashian, a lady with whom he apparently had nothing in common when news of the affair broke around the world last November, after their split and during her divorce from Kanye West, Davidson now intends to go even further: goes to space with billionaire Jeff Bezoson March 23, as part of the flights of the NS 20 spacecraft.
Born in Staten Island, Davidson is the son of one of the heroic firefighters who lost their lives at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, while trying to rescue the victims of the terrorist attack. This loss was very traumatic for Davidson, who was not yet 8 years old, and this led to behavioral problems (as he told the New York Times), and he even went bald when he pulled out all his hair out of anxiety.
Amy, his mother, and Casey, his younger sister, were his greatest supporters, according to the actor, and it was with his mother’s permission — after a long push and pull between the two — that he decided to cut short his university studies. at the age of 19 to dedicate himself to comedy full time, after he began doing stand up at 16 in his community and in some Brooklyn clubs until he had the opportunity to work in Manhattan and later join the famous crew of Saturday Night Live —which has been on the air for 46 consecutive years, and has been the hotbed of figures such as Bill Murray, John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Jane Curtin, Eddie Murphy, Dana Carvey, Mike Myers, Tina Fey and many more— in 2014 and to which still belongs.
Davidson has shown on more than one occasion to be tremendously astute in his handling of the mass media and social networks, which are not always active, and he is a celebrity who has not lost ground, due to the undeniable fact that he is the one who marks the guideline.
The same thing happens with his romantic relationships: when he was with Ariana Grande (they almost reached the altar) her fans hated and booed him, and when they broke up, although it was on good terms, many claimed that some of her songs were about him (such as that of Taylor Swift and Mr. Gyllenhaal, although the thing is more subtle).
Later it was the flower of a scandal that he had a very public affair with the British star Kate Beckinsale (‘Underworld’), for which she was highly criticized, causing a response from him during an interview on SNL, in which he spoke of the people’s double standards: many think it’s good that men like Alec Baldwin, Leonardo DiCaprio, Donald Trump or Ben Affleck (who was dating Ana de Armas at the time) have affairs or relationships with women 10, 15 or 20 years younger that they. Ah, but if she’s a woman, then she’s a cougar, right?
Pete’s response to that situation brought him much applause everywhere, and while it didn’t pan out, he and Beckinsale remain friends (and he took solace in ‘Maid’ star Margaret Qualley and supermodel daughter Kaia Gerber). Cindy Crawford) and when in November 2021 it was made public that he was the man who had come to shelter (and repair) Kim Kardashian’s broken heart after her spectacular thunder with Kanye West, the father of her children (to whom Kim put up with everything: rudeness, a friendship with Donald Trump, and a monumental public nervous breakdown), Davidson reached a whole new level of celebrity, and so far he has managed to handle it very well, in addition to having returned the smile to the Kardashian, She had been looking very unhappy for quite some time.
Now, the fact that Pete – who won many sympathies, including mine, by making the unpalatable ‘Ye’ angry – goes to space on March 23, has turned out to be, in an unusual way, an inspiration for many children and adolescents to show that no matter how many setbacks there are in life: the only limit is the stars.
