The Friendship You Didn't Know You Needed

Pete Davidson and Colson Baker (Machine Gun Kelly) are ultimate friend goals.

The Friendship You Didn't Know You Needed

During some of my endless watching of SNL skits on Youtube, I came across a video underneath a Pete Davidson skit that seemed intriguing. The video is titled 'Pete Davidson & Colson Baker (Machine Gun Kelly) Take a Lie Detector Test" and it was posted by Vanity Fair. I have watched some Lie Detector videos posted by them before, so I decided to give it a shot.

At first glance when you open the video, you see these two guys who look totally different, with totally different backgrounds and careers, and who are known for getting in trouble. Davidson, who's wearing a tie-dye shirt and a black jacket, is a comedian on SNL who lives in his mom's basement in Staten Island. Baker, who has bleach blonde hair and is wearing a fancy grey suit, is a a rapper, singer, songwriter, and actor from Cleveland who has a eleven year old daughter, Casie. Baker has more of an intimidating vibe at first, but throughout the interview he is actually the total opposite.

One question Davidson asks is "Do you think I'm a better comedian than actor?" to which Baker says "Not to be lame, but I think you're great at both". That moment is one of the sweetest in the video, the way he doesn't hesitate to answer is how you know that he truly meant it. Another question Davidson asks is "Do you watch SNL every week?" and Baker says "I watch Pete's parts every week" is another awesome moment in this interview. Baker is so supportive of Davidson and his career, and its really a sweet moment to witness.

Another question is "You're a dad right?" to which Davidson immediately interjects with "He is a GREAT FATHER, he's, he's a GREAT dad" and then Colson goes "me, my daughter and Pete, we actually took a road trip together" to which Davidson replies "and we spent Christmas together and it was BEAUTIFUL". Watching this video, I didn't expect to see Baker be so kind, warm and supportive of Davidson himself and his career. I also would have never expected them to spend Christmas together and them go on a road trip with Baker's eleven year old daughter.

During the next part, Baker is interviewing Davidson. One question is if Davidson thinks that they'll be friends forever to which Davidson immediately replies "Absolutely, 100%". This is true friendship, there was no hesitation of Davidson to even answer the question. He knew from the second it was asked that they were always going to be friends. Another question is "Have you ever pretended to like one of my songs when I first played it for you?" to which Davidson replies "No, but there are songs that have grown on me, and that's 100". Davidson is so supportive of Baker's career as well, and its so nice to see this friendship where both of these "tough" guys constantly support each other.

One question Baker asked is if Pete was good at acting and he said yes and no. Then Davidson said he was only good if he was playing himself, while Baker could play characters; to which Baker said "hmm, false". Baker doesn't let Pete drag himself down because he just wants to uplift Davidson and help him be confident. Then Baker asks if Davidson thinks he's a better flirt to which he responded yes to, but then he drags himself saying he's not as good looking as Baker, to which Baker immediately goes "no no no no no no no no no no" and again doesn't let Davidson be down on himself.

Pete Davidson and Colson Baker are a great example of a truly supportive friendship. Both of these guys constantly are there for each other and it's very sweet to see their friendship portrayed.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
