  • Ariana Grande released an epic music video for her break up and self-love anthem "Thank U, Next." We look at all the hidden meanings, Easter eggs, and movie references that even the biggest Ariana fans might have missed. She references four romantic comedies from the 2000s: "Mean Girls," "13 Going on 30," "Legally Blonde," and "Bring it On." Plus, the video features cameos from Kris Jenner to Ari's best friends and former castmates from the Nickelodeon show "Victorious." But there's so much more, and we uncover it all.In the video, Grande embodies a main character from each film, played by Rachel McAdams, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner, and Kirsten Dunst.Grande even has her own Burn Book about her exes — Pete Davidson, Ricky Alvarez, Big Sean, and Mac Miller — though she only wrote positive comments.Famous faces include Jonathan Bennett, Colleen Ballinger, Stefanie Drummond, Troye Sivan, Gabi DeMartino, Elizabeth Gillies, Kris Jenner, Robbie Shapiro, Daniella Monet, Ari's dog Toulouse, and Jennifer Coolidge.Read more: https://www.thisisinsider.com/ariana-...------------------------------------------------------INSIDER is great journalism about what passionate people actually want to know.

    2 of those black girls Victoria & Tayla(who co wrote this) playing the east Compton clovers are also her best friends not just her “back up dancers “ as you stated. They both also danced with her on Ellen when she first performed this & she tags them on ig all the time as her best friends..just thought you’d like to know so you can better reference them going forward.

    Also Kris Jenner also was a reference to the “you’re doing amazing sweetie” and Victoria monet is one of the cheerleaders as well and she wasn’t a backup dancer but another singer that she’s very close with and opened for her on the America leg of her dwt.
