Just when we thought that “Thank U, Next” was the best thing Ariana Grande’s done, she started sharing clips from her new music video for the song.
It appears the new project will be recreating some of the best iconic teen movies from the early 2000s. We’re talking Legally Blonde, Bring It On, and 13 going on 30. And she teased that there are more to come on her Insta story this week.
So how did Ari take on the role of Elle Woods, the aspiring lawyer set to prove that she can have beauty and brains?
Easy, find Paulette Bonafonte, played by Jennifer Coolidge, and throw on a pink top. No blonde hair needed.
Even her dog Toulouse is getting in on the Legally Blonde action, playing wood’s chihuahua Bruiser Woods.
She even found an old orange Mac computer just like Woods had in the movie.
“Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed,” she captioned the shot of herself.
Now is it getting cold in here or is it just her Bring It On remake pictures?
Dressed as one of the Toros from the movie, she captioned one pic “I transferred from Los Angeles, your school has no gymnastics team this is a resort. Ok, I’ve never cheered before so what?”
And like all of her others, added a “#thankunext” for good measure.
She shared a shot of the Clovers as well. Recognize some of the cheerleaders?
Two are the dancers from the “Thank U, Next” performance on The Ellen Degeneres Show.
And we’re not the only ones who are excited. Stars from the original movie are freaking out too.
And while we haven’t seen too much from her 13 going on 30 bit, she did hint that the movie would definitely be making an appearance.

One thing is for sure: Grande is not only portraying a strong female character in her video but also in real life.
Last week Piers Morgan criticized Ellen DeGeneres on Twitter and the pop band Little Mix.
Ellen drooling today over famous men's bodies on #InternationalMensDay2018.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) November 19, 2018
Yet I've been abused all day for complimenting @hollywills on her legs.
The hypocrisy of modern feminism laid bare..

And Ariana Grande’s mom Joan decided to hit back.
“Honestly what is wrong with you @piersmorgan?” she tweeted. “Didn’t your mother ever teach you, if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it! You came for @TheEllenShow yesterday which was disgraceful, she is an angel. @LittleMix today, did you ever hear of paying homage? And..well never mind.”

And Morgan responded.
Hi Joan, my mother taught me to speak my mind & never be afraid to express honestly held opinion.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) November 21, 2018
Ellen's a hypocrite - and as for Little Mix, I'd just prefer they use their talent to sell records rather than their nudity.
As your own daughter does...! https://t.co/nCQAsIgoVG
Grande clapped back and it was harsh.
Ellen is an incredible & kind human being.. I use my talent AND my sexuality all the time because i choose to. women can be sexual AND talented. naked and dignified. it’s OUR choice. 🖤 & we will keep fighting til people understand. i say this w all due respect but thank u, next. https://t.co/wSknRSlJN8— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) November 21, 2018
The Twitter-verse was here for it.
I give thanks for Ariane Grande and her mom putting manners on piers Morgan. #ThanksgivingEve— Grainne Fox (@grainnefox) November 21, 2018
I don't know much about Ariane Grande but if she keeps jibbing the charlatan and vulgarian that is Piers Morgan, I'm going to start buying her records. (My usual tastes are the Fall, the Clash and the Jam.) https://t.co/fWmzxJG4G7— An Irish Scene (@Spackymartin) November 22, 2018
I hope Piers Morgan has said he is sorry to Ariane Grande #Love— paul wragg (@toolguypaul) June 4, 2017
Thankful today for Ariana Grande continually dunking on Piers Morgan— Run Weasley (@BrianKane36) November 22, 2018
Maybe God really is a woman. Maybe he’s Ariana Grande.
