Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's engagement has raised questions about their different levels of fame
"Ariana Grande is a Top 40 staple with a trio of Grammy nominations and three platinum albums," says Inkoo Kang. "She’s arguably one of the five biggest pop acts working right now. Pete Davidson has been on SNL for the last four years, but probably wouldn’t even crack a top 5 list among that show’s cast. Davidson’s no slouch: He was hired by Lorne Michaels at age 20, making him one of the show’s youngest cast members ever. But Grande and Davidson’s disparate levels of fame and accomplishment have made the couple Exhibit A in discussions about how differently humor is seen as a sexually desirable trait across genders."
