Ariana Grande dropped the full-length music video for her new single, "thank u, next" on Friday, giving fans a five-minute short packed with celebrity cameos. The track is Grande's first release since she broke off her engagement from Pete Davidson, and also includes plenty of references to her love life.
The video was inspired by Mean Girls, with a dash of Legally Blonde tossed in. There are also references to Bring It On and 13 Going on 30, showing off the 25-year-old singer's love for beloved romantic comedies of the 2000s.
The opening makes fun of the tabloid headlines Grande's relationships have inspired, from what happens if you record Grande's snoring to rumors she was pregnant.
Scroll on for a look at all the celebrity cameos in the video.
