The pair, who will be hosting Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party Hosted By Miley Cyrus And Pete Davidson on NBC this year, recalled making their decision after they played singing and dancing babies for a SNL sketch.
“We made this SNL sketch where we were babies that were rapping – trap babies – one of the many brilliant ideas that I bring to the SNL table,” Davidson said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Cyrus added: “We said, ‘We babies,’ and for some reason, we looked at each other and were like, ‘That’s a great tattoo.'”
Davidson then described how they had a tattoo artist come to the notorious 30 Rock building to perform the task. “Then I burned mine off and you still have yours,” he said.
In the sketch, Davidson wears an “I <3 Staten Island” hoodie and muses about his hometown, reflecting on its fine sites including the bagel spots, pizza places and garbage dump you can see from space.
The pop star said online that she will “never forget how lucky I am” to write songs as a career and thanked Forbes for the inclusion.
