Ariana Grande dropped the teaser trailer for her video, Thank U, Next, which she promised is coming soon, and it’s just as we expected- a few celeb cameo’s, some Mean Girls references, & jabs at Pete Davidson. The short clip takes inspiration from a classic “Mean Girls” sequence in which high school students gossip about queen bee Regina George. Except this queen is played by Grande, who doesn’t appear in the teaser, and everybody is talking about all things going down in her very dramatic personal life. Tryoe Sivan, “Mean Girls” stars Jonathan Bennett and Stefanie Drummond (aka the girl Regina George famously punched in the face) and YouTuber Colleen Ballinger appear in the video. Drummond’s character actually references Grande’s recent split with “Saturday Night Live” comedian Pete Davidson, telling the camera, “Ariana broke off an engagement. So, I found a guy to propose to me, and I broke off an engagement.” Not only is there Mean Girls references, but Ari also had “Legally Blonde,” “13 Going on 30″ and “Bring It On” also inspire the music video.
