Earlier this month, Ariana Grande released her new song “thank u, next” and since then, she’s been teasing fans with her social media. These Instagram and Twitter posts give a glimpse into her new music video.
In these posts, Ari is channeling some iconic characters from four 2000’s movies: Mean Girls, Legally Blonde, 13 Going on 30, and Bring It On.
Ari shared posts of herself in full Regina George mode, with a Burn Book and everything!
She even snagged Aaron Samuels for the video. Jonathan Bennett posted this selfie of himself as Aaron with Ari as Regina. 14 years later and he still looks sexy with his hair pushed back.
Next, Ari channels Elle Woods as she takes on law school with her orange laptop, furry companion, and pink attire. She even pinned Harvard University as her location. The “bend and snap” makes the perfect workout!
Ari also seems to have found her magical dollhouse in the back of her closet. The dollhouse transports her through time and she is now a big-time magazine editor. Whatever time period she’s in, “Thriller” will always bring people to the dance floor.
The final film Ari channels is Bring It On. Ari takes on Missy Pantone in these posts and even shared some photos of her rivals, the Clovers. Brr, it’s cold in here!

“The ballots are in, and one girl has to win! She’s perky, she’s fun, and now she’s number one!” A-A-A-Ari!
Ari hasn’t revealed a release date for her “thank u, next” video yet, but we all hope it’s soon.
Thank U, Next
