All The Easter Eggs And References In Ariana Grande's 'Thank U, Next' Music Video Explained

    Lengd: 12:14

    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.

At 10:37, the post man's shirt says BDE, which probably was meant to be an a short term for Blonde, because the scene is from legally blond, right?

They missed the part where the page in the book about Pete says HUUUUUUGE (relating to the BDE, and Ari's tweet about Pete's size), and the part where she talks with Jennifer Coolidge about the big front, with the double twist. :D And that she has Greedy or Needy on her shirt (Needy might be the title of an upcoming song).

You should've included that Victoria Monet and Tayla Parx were two of the Clovers. They're two of Ariana's closest friends and also have helped write a lot of her songs.

you forget to talk about the movie ''The First Wives Club'' there is a clear reference to that movie, see the last scene of the movie when the 3 womans sing '' you dont own me''. Another reference to ariadna's ex's.

In all seriousness. Jokes aside. How in the world is this video relevant. The world is becoming more and more stupid, dumb and blind. Always feeding on crap. Grow the hell up people.

04:30 The word „babygirl“ actually made me think of the Mean Girls musical where Damian says his mother called him babygirl. So it might be another reference within the Mean Girls universe, not necessarily a hint at something coming in the future, although that would be cool, too.

First of all, Thank you Insider for this video! Being 30+ and never into pop-music or celebs, Ms. Grande has done so many remarkable things that she is one of my fave women ever. Her, Linda Lovelace, marie Curie, Hypatia, Sacagawea, granny (both of them), Oprah and some more. Cuz Ms. Grande seems like an absolutely astonishing and sound young person in her own regard, and I look forward to seeing how she'll make her mark on the world =)
