Laughter is the best medicine, right?  

Everyone processes big life changes differently, especially in the age of social media and sometimes-exhausting interconnectivity. Ariana Grande took some time away from her social accounts following the reported breakup of her very public relationship-turned-engagement with SNL writer and cast member Pete Davidson.

Over the weekend Davidson headlined the comedy show Judd & Pete for America in West Hollywood alongside Judd Apatow and did what any good comedian does - turned his personal tragedy into stage material. "Well, as you could tell, I don't want to be here. There's a lot going on," said Davidson at the event, according to E! News.

According to a source that spoke with the outlet Davidson is "staying with family" and "doing fine" and has a "strong support system of family and friends around him that are keeping him laughing."

Davidson went on to joke about "covering a bunch of tattoos, that's fun," he said at the event, benefitting the progressive organization Swing Left. "0 for 2" he added, referring to the tattoo he got for Grande and one he got for his ex Cazzie David.

"Yeah, I'm afraid to get my mom tattooed on me, that's how bad it is," Davidson joked.

When Apatow thanked Davidson for coming to the event with everything going on, Davidson said he had no choice sine he was on the flier. "Fuck my feelings," he joked.

"I care more about America than your feelings, I do," replied Apatow.

"I feel like I am America," Davidson said. "I'm a good guy that just keeps getting kickedin the dick. You're like, 'Ah, that fucking poor kid. Hope he doesn't kill himself.' That's America." Though she's back posting to social media, Grande has cancelled shows and isn't even thinking about a tour for her recent album, sweetener, right now.
