Ariana Grande's music video for Thank U, Next is here

The 25-year-old pop superstar released the highly-anticipated music video for "Thank U, Next" on November 30 (December 1 AEST), a star-studded tribute to the iconic teen films Mean Girls, Legally Blonde, Bring It On, and 13 Going on 30.

Lindsay Lohan who starred in the original Mean Girls, has already addressed the new video, in which Dynasty actress Elizabeth Gillies - Ariana's Victorious castmate - takes on her Cady Heron role from the cult movie.

Jessie Wade is a news writer at IGN and will probably be watching one of these movies tonight. Note to Hollywood: cast her in more things, please! Ex-fiancé Pete Davidson's Burn Book page has a few telling notes scribbled down: "Pete" is written inside a heart; "I love you always" is jotted down the right side; and "HUUUGE" runs across the bottom, recalling a running joke about Davidson being well-endowed.

"Thank U, Next" is her first song to hit the top of the chart. "And then you get to see Ariana and her friends dressed as the Plastics and to watch them walk down the hallway, it literally brought back some fantastic memories and it was really nice to go back and relive something that's been such an integral part of your life for the past 15 years".

She also donned Reese Witherspoon as Elle Wood from Legally Blonde.

Jenner also cheered her mother Kris' standout appearance, writing "This is genius", on her Instagram Story along with a clip from the Hannah Lux Davis-directed music video. Jonathan Bennett, who played Aaron Samuels and Stefanie Drummond, who played Bethany Byrd, both made cameos. Grande talks to her about her ex's parts - a likely reference to Davidson's "big d*** energy" - and Coolidge thought she meant big front tooth.

Other cameos include one by Jennifer Coolidge, in character as manicurist Paulette from "Legally Blonde".

Big Sean is described as "so cute" and "so sweet" - and in case you can't read it, the last bit says "could still get it".
