Now Ariana Grande can tell Aaron Samuels in person how his hair looks sexy backwards.
For her upcoming music video "Thank you, next", the 25-year-old pop superstar is channeling a whole line of beloved movies, including Bad Girls. If that was not attractive enough, he also caught Jonathan Bennett, the actor who played Aaron in the original script with Tina Fey, as well as his own Burn Book.
Big makes a murderous Regina George (the role of queen bee of Rachel McAdams) in a series of behind-the-scenes photos taken from the shoot. She is seen surrounded with her gang: Dynasty actress Elizabeth Gillies as Cady Heron by Lindsay Lohan, Alexa Luria as Karen Smith by Amanda Seyfried, Courtney Chipolone as Gretchen Wieners by Lacey Chabert and, of course, her sweet man.
"You're really pretty," Grande wrote on Instagram, citing one of Regina's many catchy lines.
The debut of "Thank you, next" came with a bunch of Burn Book images, recreating the look of Plastics' infamous hate tome. Grande also helped spread the word by playing the song The show by Ellen DeGeneres with a routine inspired by The first wives club, another film apparently referenced in the next video.
In the days that followed, the singer shared a series of photos on social networks that provoked other assent. Big was seen posing next to Legally BlondeJennifer Coolidge and her own laptop approved by Elle Woods. Appropriately, your dog, Toulouse, will take over Bruiser.
She also channeled Go ahead with a cheerleader uniform Bulls and 13 going to 30 with a dollhouse similar to Jennifer Garner's.
Grande confirmed the 13 going to 30 tribute in an Instagram story, but he joked: "There's still one more to come."
Grande launched "Thank you, next" after his breakup with his fiancé Pete Davidson, and the song makes reference to him, as well as to his former past.
"I thought it would end with Sean / But it was not a rival," she sings. "I wrote some songs about Ricky / Now I listen and laugh" I even got married / And for Pete, I'm very grateful / I wish I could say "thank you" to Malcolm / "Because he was an angel".
"Thank you, next" scored a Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 in one place, and with all this star talent that comes for the music video, just think about what else you will achieve. So show yourself!
