As the 25-year-old croons "Even nearly got married, and for Pete I'm so thankful", Grande croons, she also writes "sry I dipped". It proved worth the wait though, since the hit song was delightfully brought to life with a pop culture flare that included tributes to Mean Girls, Bring It On, Legally Blonde and 13 Going on 30. Ariana looked so stunning in all her scenes, she had so many A-list cameos, the production of the music video is big, and I'm just so happy Ariana gave "Thank U, Next" what undoubtedly is the best music video of her career to date.
And if you're still wondering who ditched whom in her recent romance, let us break it - it was the singer herself who got cold feet!
Early 2000s nostalgia aside, the video packs a hefty punch in terms of star power, too: Out singer Troye Sivan, YouTuber Colleen Ballinger, and Ariana Grande impersonator Gabi DeMartino reimagine some of the hilarious Mean Girls dialogue from the beginning of the film re: head-bitch-in-charge Regina George-or, in this case, Ariana Grande. "She's not wrong", says Jonathan Bennett, who starred in the original "Mean Girls". Momager Kris Jenner makes an appearance as Regina's "cool mom" in the Christmas song sequence from the 2004 comedy - and it felt like she was made for the role! In the song, she sings "Even nearly got married / To Pete I'm so thankful".
Check out the full Queen Ariana video, below. She hops out of a black Porsche with her beagle-chihuahua mix Toulouse as the pair cosplays fiercely feminine law student Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) and her loyal pup Bruiser. "But, have you even gone out with someone that had no teeth at all?".
However, her fourth ex - Mac Miller - who died of drug overdose recently, wasn't mentioned in the book.
