Grande debuted the video for her relationship-themed single, "thank u, next," and a lot of people got together on YouTube to watch it at the same time. In the clip, Grande takes moments from a few iconic early-2000s movies, interpolating Mean Girls, 13 Going on 30, Legally Blonde, and Bring It On.
The clip also stars Mean Girls heartthrob Aaron
Samuels (Jonathan Bennett), and Grande's former Victorious co-stars Matt Bennett and Victoria
Monet. Troye Sivan
and Kris Jenner also make cameo appearances.
"Thank u, next" - which has been sitting atop the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks - is the latest piece directed by Ari's frequent collaborator Hannah
Lux Davis, and follows Grande's "Breathin
" video which dropped early in November.
