thank u next

Thank U, Next has been on everyone's lips and we ADORE the self-empowering message Ari is belting out.

And then Ariana dropped that iconic video and it's all anyone has been talking about. 

But we may have just found a parody of the music video that might rival the masterpiece.

Everyone welcome to the stage: James Corden's Thank u, Jeff.

In a segment for The Late Late Show with James Corden, the host takes on the smash hit.

Trolling the pop song, James is rocking some silk pjs, with a burn book of his own dedicated to Jeff Goldblum.

The lyrics are genius and Jeff takes over the role that Kris Jenner stole in Ariana's version.

James also includes the bend and snap, a sexy piano sequence and a pillow fight.

I'm not sure if we will ever get the image of James humping his bedroom carpet out of our head – but the video is pure brilliance.

Even Ariana loved the parody and asked for the Thank U, Jeff book.

Replying to the video on Twitter, the singer wrote: "Omg…may I please…Please for Christmas have the Thank U, Jeff book? It's for a friend, promise."

I've re-watched the video more times than I care to admit – just amazing.


Ariana Grande has completely broken the internet with her second video for her anthem Thank u, Next.

The video, which broke YouTube and Vevo records, has been viewed almost 100 million times since it was uploaded on Friday. 

As with all pop culture revolutions, the video has been dissected thousands of times, and fans have pointed out some subtleties that seem to indicate that Ariana is woke when it comes to immigration. 

In the Legally Blonde portion of the video, Ariana can be seen reclining on a sun lounger, pouring over legal tomes. 

Her volume of choice? Immigration & Refugee Law and Policy.

Now, this could be passed off as a coincidence, if it wasn't for none other than Ariana Grande's own mother.

Joan, aka Mama Grande, confirmed on Twitter that the choice of book was intentional. 

The inclusion of the legal book was a statement against POTUS Donald Trump's stance on immigration.  


Thank U, Next has racked up an incredible 89 million views and counting.

The video smashed Youtube's record for the most views in 24 hours and it's still trending as number one.

It doesn't really come as a surprise since it incorporated all the films of our entire adolescence and, of course Kris Jenner as Regina's mum was just iconic.

But as we've combed through the video for the millionth time, it becomes clear that Mac Miller is missing from Ariana's burn book and the singer has spoken out to why.

Replying to a fan who tweeted: "When she flips through the thank u next burn book and pics of her with Sean, Ricky, Pete & Mac arrive……………we had to f*cking stan."

But Ariana said the reason why Mac Miller wasn't in the book was because he had a special place next to her.

"M ain't in the book, he's next to my bed," she replied.

If you've been dissecting the video as much as we have since it's release, you'll spot that before the singer closes the burn book, she belts out: "Wish I could say thank you to Malcolm, ‘cause he was an angel."

Now time to super zoom and those of you who are eagled-eyed, you will see on her nightstand, a number of picture frames – though we can't make out what's in them, we can only presume from Ariana's tweet that they're pictures of her late ex.

Heartbreakingly, Malcolm passed away from an overdose in September.

Ariana has paid tribute to him by covering up some old 'Pete' ink with a tattoo in Malcolm's honour.


We are still reeling from the iconic Thank U, Next video, which Ariana dropped over the weekend.

Besides from smashing a Youtube record for the most views in 24 hours, the singer has made a slight adjustment to a 'Pete' tattoo.

In the behind the scenes action of the video, the 25-year-old debuts her new tattoo which is dedicated to her late ex, Mac Miller.

The new ink covers her old tattoo which was for her former fiancé Pete Davidson, which means our hun is officially moving on.

Flaunting the new ink, Ariana said in the video:  “Look at my Myron, guys, come look. How cool right?”

Myron is Mac Miller's dog, which has been snapped in a number of photos with Ariana since Malcolm's tragic death. 

Mac Miller sadly passed away from an overdose on September 7, 2018.

The new tribute tattoo has covered up old ink which read '8418'.

The ink was a tribute to Pete’s late father, who sadly lost his life in the September 11 attacks in 2001. 


The moment we have all been waiting for – Ariana Grande's 5 minute long, 00s movie montage video for Thank u, Next has finally landed.

In the opening scene we see Ari posing as Regina George, clutching a Burn Book inspired Thank u, Next diary. 

However, instead of being filled with insults, its a scrapbook of happy times with ex boyfriends. Over the picture of ex-fiance Pete, she writes 'Sorry I dipped' in red marker. 

Them, Ariana and her Mean Girls crew perform the Jingle Bell Rocks dance – and the one and only KRIS JENNER is there to stand in as the 'Regina George's Mom' character.

Ariana, you ARE doing amazing, sweetie.

Next, we see major references from the iconic film Bring It On – except rather than being hung up on a guy, Ariana is her own love interest, making mix tapes for herself.

The 13 Going On 30 scene is brief – but clearly portrays a lost love of Ariana's who moved on with someone else. 

Ariana then sits down in the salon with Jennifer Coolidge and portrays the entire movie of Legally Blonde. 

The video ends with Ariana flipping the camera the bird, and laughing, dancing and goofing around with friends. It's clear that while Ariana may have taken inspiration from and paid homage to teenage rom-coms of the past, she's now writing her own script for her future. 



The passing of Mac Miller was one that stunned the music industry and fans of the late rapper. One person who truly felt the significant loss of the Small Worlds singer is his former partner Ariana Grande.

Ariana has been mourning the loss of her ex-boyfriend as well as dealing with the breakdown of her relationship with Pete Davidson. There’s no doubt the past few months have been hell for the singer so the last thing she needs to deal with is people making nasty accusations about her.


A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

Numerous people have taken to Twitter with ludicrous claims that Ariana is ‘milking’ her former partner’s death.

One user wrote: “She milkin’ this shit bruh” and another tweeted: “Ariana let it go… Mourn it behind closed doors. Stop milkin' it when you wasn't even there when he was at his lowest right before it happened."

The One Last Time singer defended herself in a series of tweets, proving that she is unbelievably strong despite the mass heartache she has gone through this year.

She tweeted: “Some of the shit I read on here makes me sick to my stomach. It scares me the way some people think and I don’t like this world a lot of the time. If only we could be more compassionate and gentle with one another. That’d be sick.”


A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

The Breathin’ singer added: “Everything I feel is valid and safe. Everything I do is genuine and honest. There is no right or wrong during this period.”

The accusations come after the God Is A Woman singer paid tribute to her former beau on Thanksgiving.

She posted a photo of Mac on her Instagram story captioned ‘you’re very missed’.

Mere months have passed since Mac Miller died. His death is certainly still extremely raw for Ariana so she has every right to mourn in whatever way helps her process this tragic loss.


Mean Girls is one of the most iconic teen movies of our time, and tbh, Aaron Samuels was our first ever on-screen crush. 

The North Shore High lothario toyed with the hearts of both Cady and Regina while having a heart of gold (and enviable hair) himself. 

Played by Jonathan Bennett, we we're huge fans – and clearly so is Ariana Grande. 

Ariana Grande has teasing snippets of her upcoming music video for her iconic anthem Thank u, next. 

The video is clearly Mean Girls themed – and we're gagging to see it. 

Aaron Samuels, being an intrinsic part of the film, naturally had to make an appearance. 


A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

Posting to Twitter, Jonathan Bennett uploaded a snap of himself and Ariana Grande. 

Keeping with the Mean Girls puns, he wrote: 'You’re like really pretty,.'

Ariana is holding a copy of Jonathan's parody Mean Girls  cook book, The Burn (Cook) Book.


A post shared by Jonathan Bennett (@jonathandbennett) on

The book and it's launch are chock-a-block with Mean Girls puns.

'Kalteen Bars, Gretchen's Wieners, Fetch-uccine Alfredo, You Go Glen (Hot) Cocoa, Ms. Norberry Pie, Just Stab Caesar Salad and Is Mac and Cheese a Carb?' are all recipes – and of course, it was released on Octber 3rd. 


Ariana Grande’s powerful and unique break-up hit thank u, next has been on loop in the SHEmazing office so it’s safe to say we’re excited about the music video.

The One Last Time singer has been teasing fans with behind-the-scenes and exclusive snaps from the music video for her latest hit and we are so ready for it.

The singer is set to pay tribute to some of the most iconic movies of every gals life, including 13 Going on 30, Bring It On, Legally Blonde and Mean Girls.


A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

Ariana took to Instagram last night to give fans a glimpse of her channeling her inner Regina George.

The singer shared three photos from the scene and fans completely lost it. In one of the shots, the singer is hiding behind her very own burn book that has ‘thank u, next’ on the cover.


A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

In another snap, Ariana is lying on the bed with her burn book open. Fans were quick to spot the name Sean written inside a love heart in the book, which is a nod to her ex-boyfriend Big Sean.

We are itching to see the video for thank u, next and it looks like we may not have long to wait.


A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

It is believed the singer has completed filming the video and she may be dropping it within the next week.

We are so ready to see Ariana recreate scenes from these iconic movies. Her inspiring and uplifting breakup song is revitalising pop music.

You go, Ariana!


No one can deny how strong Ariana Grande's Instagram game is. I mean, the gal's got 135 MILLION followers, and she know's how to grab our attention.

This time, she got a little assistance from her cousin and the classic Lindsey Lohan flick Mean Girls in order to troll her fans. God is a woman, so she may as well show them some love, especially since she's officially DONE with marriage.

Ari loves a good practical joke, and this time it involved an affectionate PDA with her longtime pal and relative Courtney Chipolone:


A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

In a photo posted to her Instagram yesterday, the Sweetener singer appears to be kissing Courtney while their other galpal, Alexa Luria, looks on with an uncomfortable 'Thank u, next' expression.

Ariana wrote a caption to quote the cult teen comedy, alluding to the scene when Karen admits to kissing Seth Masakowski: "'Yeah but she’s my FIRST cousin."

According to Karen's logic:

"So, you have your cousins, and then you have your first cousins, and then you have your second cousins…" Classic Karen.

Ariana kept the Mean Girls references coming, adding another Instagram post of herself and her two friends:


‘would u like us to assign someone to butter your muffin?’

A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

That caption recreates the scene involving Jason the "skeez":

"'Wuld u like us to assign someone to butter your muffin?'"

She then posted a third pic with just Alexa, including the iconic Regina George line:

"'I’m on an all carb diet GOD KAREN U ARE SO STooPID.'" 


‘i’m on an all carb diet GOD KAREN U ARE SO STooPID’

A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on


Everyone who's a fan of Ms Grande's Instagram stories know how much of a film fanatic she is, but it seems Ari truly loves her some Mean Girls.

Thank u, Ariana, for providing us with some quality Mean Girls content.

Please continue on your righteous path of female empowerment.
