The much-anticipated clip is a nod to several early-aughts romantic comedies, including "Mean Girls", "Bring it On", "Legally Blonde", and "Thirteen Going on Thirty".

And after weeks of teases online, we finally have a video for the smash-hit song. Singer-songwriter Troye Sivan also makes an appearance, as do Grande's former "Victorious" cast mates Elizabeth Gillies, Matt Bennett and Daniella Monet.

To truly do Mean Girls justice, the "thank u, next" Plastics had to do the iconic "Jingle Bell Rock" dance from the winter talent show, and Grande and her crew did not disappoint.

While she gave us a little teaser the other day, we all were not prepared for the actual video. The sweet pup channels Elle Woods' beloved sidekick, Bruiser Woods, in the "Legally Blonde"-inspired scenes".

Jonathan did get to hang with the "army trousers and flip-flops" girl though. better known as Stefanie Drummond.

And last but not least we have Reese Witherspoon, star of the heavenly film Legally Blonde.


In the opening part of the video, the singer name-drops four and uses the Mean Girls' infamous Burn Book to highlight her thoughts on three of them. "We have nothing left". She portrayed the infamous high-school queen Regina George from Mean Girls - and guess what?

Ariana Grande has led her fans to question whether or not she has her tongue pierced, after a snippet of her surfaced rolling her tongue to reveal something metallic in her mouth. "He's really cute. And it was... it was really big", perhaps in reference to a certain type of "big energy" that Davidson reportedly has.

The TUN initials on Grande's cheerleading uniform stand for Thank U, Next.

So did the Mean Girls handle.

But it was the popstar's reference to 2004 romcom 13 Going on 30 that caught Jennifer Garner's eye, and she didn't hold back in letting the star know. Hense the song. But you may have missed where it says "Sry I dipped" on Pete Davidson's page.
