Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” music video finally here! After weeks of anticipation, the video dropped today, Nov. 30, and holy moly, it’s iconic. We’ve been so excited ever since the singer first revealed that she’ll be reenacting scenes from our favorite girl empowered movies — including Mean Girls, 13 Going On 30, Legally Blonde, and Bring It On — for the video. And now, it’s out and it’s even better than we thought it would be… if that’s even possible!
Before it premiered, Ariana had been teasing the video for her new pop anthem by sharing various behind-the-scenes videos and snaps of herself dressed up as some of these movies’ most famous characters. And we’re still screaming over the Mean Girls pics, which showed the singer as Regina George alongside her plastics, which are played by her BFF, Alexa Luria, and her bestie/cousin, Courtney Chipolone. Ariana looks just like the queen bee while dressed up in Regina’s famous “A Little Bit Dramatic” tank top, pink cardigan, and tan skirt. She also rocked a straight, blonde wig for the video.
But it wasn’t just Ariana’s amazing Regina impersonation that we’re freaking out over, it’s also all the amazing special guests that appear in the video! From some of the original Mean Girls cast to Ariana’s old Victorious co-stars, we’ve gone ahead and rounded up everyone that made an appearance in the “Thank U, Next,” music video.
