Body language experts analyzed Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson
Grande and Davidson's first interaction on SNL shows mutual attraction.
When Ariana Grande hosted "Saturday Night Live" in March 2019, her song-as-monologue focused on creating a "scandal" to herald the adult stage of her career. As part of the gag (which starts around the 3:50 minute mark), Davidson invited her to smoke pot with him.
To this, she replied, "Pot? Let's smoke some crack, man."
Davidson refused the offer and, overall, their entire on-screen interaction lasted approximately nine seconds. All the same, some eagle-eyed fans have pointed to this as the moment in which sparks began to fly between the couple — and, according to both Glass and Wood, they're not too far off.
"Instead of 'cheating' to the audience, which means that you stand facing towards the cameras and sort of look back at whoever you're addressing on stage, she turns her body directly to him," Wood told INSIDER. "They were supposed to be interacting, but it was so deliberate and it's not what she did with the other actors she interacted with. Women do that when they want to be fully connected, they go face-to-face."
Glass also said she sees signs of flirting from Grande based on her raised shoulders, which can indicate a desire for attention from the person you're talking to, and broad smile.
Grande and Davidson's first photograph as a couple doesn't communicate excitement.
Having a closed-lip smile doesn't communicate genuine happiness.
Grande and Davidson made their first public appearance as a couple by dressing up in matching Harry Potter robes. Many of their fans were thrilled to learn about Grande and Davidson's Hogwarts House preferences (Slytherin and Gryffindor, respectively), but Glass wasn't as impressed.
"He doesn't lean into her, and he has a tight-lipped smile which often means ambivalence," Glass said. "There is no open-mouth teeth-showing cheek raising smile [which is an indicator of genuine happiness] so this is not a good sign."
That said, this is just a picture. Both Grande and Davidson could have been displaying open-mouth smiles at any other point in the day, so the particular moment that happened to be captured on Instagram may not matter quite as much to the ultimate future of their relationship.
Grande's favored pose with Davidson reveals a "hunger to be adored and doted upon."
Wood sees "conflict [from Grande]."Grande sticks out her tongue frequently in photos.
In both photos that Grande has posted, she's sticking her tongue out. (Though, in all fairness, this may just be something that Grande does a lot.) This, to Glass, reveals a "hunger to be adored and doted upon."
Wood had a similar interpretation, and said that she sees "conflict [from Grande] between wanting to be transported and into the bliss with him and wanting to seem wild and stick out her tongue."
Obviously, some Instagram photos and a nine-second video can't exactly paint a whole picture of a relationship.
"There isn't really a lot that's real to analyze," Wood told INSIDER. "They were acting in the 'Saturday Night Live' video and they were putting on an act in the photos, so it's a little bit different than a normal read."
All the same, Glass sees some signs of potential hardship in the relationship, though it's nothing that Grande and Davidson won't be able to work on.
"These are two people who need to figure themselves out first before they can be in a relationship with one another," Glass said. "They both need to be prepared for some major challenges in life."
This may be true.
