Davidson Takes the Lead
Pete Davidson, a regular face at SNL, made a milestone move by stepping into the host’s shoes for the first time. Bringing his own brand of humor, Davidson showcased a memorable take on Ryan Gosling’s “I’m Just Ken.” This live episode had a special aura as it marked the show’s return since the writers’ strike hiatus that started in May.
Ice Spice’s Meteoric Rise in 2023
To say Ice Spice has been on fire this year would be an understatement. The talented rapper not only dropped a deluxe version of her initial EP, Like..?, but she’s also been stirring up the scene with collaborations featuring big names like Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, and PinkPantheress. But that’s not all. Her branding game is strong, evident from her signature drink roll-out with Dunkin’ Donuts. Fans are now eagerly awaiting her upcoming gigs, where she’ll be sharing the stage with Doja Cat for select performances on the much-anticipated Scarlet Tour.
