Pete Davidson Discusses The R. Kelly & Michael Jackson Documentaries On SNL

On last night’s Saturday Night Live, Pete Davidson went on Weekend Update to talk about the recent R. Kelly and Michael Jackson documentaries. He began, “If you support the Catholic church, isn’t that the same thing as being an R. Kelly fan? Only one’s music is significantly better.” People booed.

“You don’t know how good someone’s music really is until you find out they’re a pedophile,” Davidson says. “The reason everybody’s so upset is because R. Kelly and Michael Jackson make great music. If I found out Macklemore did some weird stuff, I’d be happy to free up the space on my iPhone.”

“Once we start doing our research, we’re not gonna have much left. Because it seems like most really talented people are sick. He cites Charlie Chaplin, Henry Ford, and Mark Wahlberg. “Pretending these people never existed is maybe not the solution.” He also briefly discusses his new relationship with Kate Beckinsale.
