Ariana Grande Debuts Rom-Com Inspired "Thank U, Next" Music Video
The video features re-creations of iconic scenes from 'Mean Girls,' 'Legally Blonde,' 'Bring It On,' '13 Going on 30' and more.
Ariana Grande dropped the highly anticipated music video to her hit "thank u, next" on Friday.
The video starts off very tongue-in-cheek with a Grande-centric version of a scene in 2004's Mean Girls where students talk about Rachel McAdams' high school queen bee character, Regina George ("I hear her hair's insured for 10,000 dollars!").
"One time on Twitter, I heard Ariana was pregnant, so I got pregnant so we could be pregnant at the same time. Turns out it was just a rumor," one actress says.
"Ariana broke off an engagement, so I found a guy to propose to me and I broke off an engagement," another says, in reference to her much-publicized split from fiance and Saturday Night Live castmember Pete Davidson. It features further re-creations of iconic scenes from Mean Girls, Legally Blonde, Bring It On, 13 Going on 30 and more throughout.
The video also features a cameo from Kris Jenner, as well as an appearance by Legally Blonde actress Jennifer Coolidge, who appears as her scene-stealing character from the film, Paulette.
Grande had teased the video multiple times in recent weeks. On Thursday, she released a teaser clip from the video that featured her dressed as both Reese Witherspoon's Legally Blonde character Elle Woods and McAdams' Regina George. She was also seen wearing a wedding dress.
The song, which was released after her breakup with Davidson, name-checks the singer's past loves, including Big Sean, Ricky Alvarez, Davidson and Mac Miller.
