All The Easter Eggs and References in Ariana Grande’s ‘Thank U, Next’ Music Video Explained
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.
