Ariana Grande Is Channelling All the Best Chick Flicks for Her "thank u, next" Video
'Mean Girls' meets 'Legally Blonde' meets '13 Going on 30' meets 'Bring It On'
She turned to some of the best female-led movies for inspiration, and has now revealed all four of the films that will be represented in the video.
Mean Girls, Legally Blonde, 13 Going on 30 and Bring It On will each have their own segments of the clip devoted to them.
So far, we've seen Grande hanging out with "the Plastics," playing Elle Woods (complete with Jennifer Coolidge and a reincarnated Bruiser), stepping into the role of a "big time magazine editor" and cheering off against a rival squad.
Check out some of the teasers below.

Her fans have been begging for more details on Twitter, but they aren't the only ones who can't wait for the video to drop in its entirety — some of the actors from the original films have already voiced their appreciation for the homages.
