The "thank you, next" visual looks like it's going to be one of Ari's most epic, especially if you grew up watching movies like Mean Girls, Legally Blonde, and 13 Going On 30. It appears that Grande will be paying tribute to these movies in the "thank you, next" music video, and we can BARELY CONTAIN OUR 00s-LOVING HEARTS.
It all started this week when Ari shared some pictures with her friends quoting Mean Girls left and right (as one does), like the scene where Regina George tells Karen Smith "I'm on an all carb diet! GOD KAREN, YOU ARE SO STUPID," among others.
You may have thought Ari was just having fun with her friends and her cousin, but THEN, the pop star teased some more pictures along with some Legally Blonde quotes, whilst also showing us her best Elle Woods.
Here Ariana is on an exercise machine with Elle's famous Orange Apple iBook and chatting on her fluffy pink phone, along with the caption "Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed":
And here she is with ELLE WOODS' BFF PAULETTE BONAFONTÉ aka the one and only Jennifer Coolidge. NBD. Bend and Snap QUEENS.
Also ... TOULOUSE AS BRUISER WOODS?!
Meanwhile on Twitter, fans are continuing to guess which other films will also be a part of this collection of iconic early 00s movie tributes, and it looks like Ari may also be giving us her best 13 Going On 30 Jenna Rink.
And while Ari hasn't spilled any more tea about what other movies are included, she did confirm one that is not. We won't be seeing Grande as Cher Horowitz anytime soon, as she explained to a fan that Clueless was not part of the video, but that some of her "other personal favs" are.
Does "other personal favs" include First Wives Club? Which she emulated in her first "thank u, next" performance on Ellen? WAS THIS OUR FIRST CLUE ABOUT THE MUSIC VIDEO?!
Waiting for the "thank u, next" music video like...
