Ariana Grande Recreates ‘Mean Girls’ In The “Thank U, Next” Video

Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” music video will take you on a trip down memory lane.

Ariana’s record-breaking breakup record is getting a proper music video treatment. The pop star is dropping bits and pieces of the upcoming clip online, and it appears to star some of our favorite female teen queen characters from cult classics, including Mean Girls, Bring It On, Legally Blonde and 13 Going on 30.

It’s worth mentioning Sabrina Carpenter just dropped a video for “Sue Me” that plays off of Legally Blonde. You can watch it here.

Ariana channeling Elle Woods and Cady Heron is a refreshing distraction from the online controversy the singer inserted herself in today. She defended Little Mix against Internet troll / minsogynst / reporter Piers Morgan, who called out Little Mix for, as he put it, using nudity to sell records.

There’s a lot to scroll through, so I’ll leave the “Thank U, Next” video pictures (including the new Mean Girls scenes which features a few members of the cast from the film), as well as Ari’s back-and-forth with Piers below:
