Ariana Grande's new video is finally here, 'Thank U' very much

Ariana Grande's new video is finally here, 'Thank U' very much”

After over a week of teasing, Ariana Grande released the music video for empowerment bop "Thank U, Next" this morning, and it's everything our little rom-com-loving hearts wished for.

Around 11AM ET, YouTube Music started the countdown for Grande's music video, inviting users to watch it and join in on the video's chat.

In one scene, she embodies queen bee Regina George (originally played by Rachel McAdams) from Mean Girls, enlisting Jonathan Bennett to reprise his role of hunk Aaron Samuels!

The singer also gave a nod to Garner's Jenna Rink character from the 2004 film 13 Going On 30.

Other surprise visits include Grande's former "Victorious" costars Matt Bennett and Elizabeth Gillies, pop star Troye Sivan and Youtuber Gabby DeMartino.

During her cheer-leading skit, the uniform is plastered with the initials TUN, which might indicate towards the song - Thank U, Next.

Grande also mentioned her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, who died in September.

Not an OG star but still a babe Kris Jenner - who utters the words "Thank u, next, bitch" in the video - wrote "I'm not a regular mom, I'm a cool mom." .

The video itself opens to Grande playing Regina George, the quintessential Mean Girl, filling out her Burn Book with all the people who've wronged her. Grande talks to her about her ex's parts - a likely reference to Davidson's "big d*** energy" - and Coolidge thought she meant big front tooth. Next up, Grande is on a bed, shaking red and black pom poms á la Kirsten Dunst, before leading a cheerleading squad at a high school football game.

She posted comparison shots of her, in all her Elle Woods glory, laying on a fuchsia lounge chair in matching shades, pink capris and a fuzzy pink cardigan and Grande wearing a replica outfit to her Instagram page on Friday.

And last but not least we have Reese Witherspoon, star of the heavenly film Legally Blonde. Finding a dog that looked just like Bruiser from Legally Blonde3.

In the dollhouse, one of the paper dolls is a selfie she took earlier this month when she got her hair cut.
