Singer Ariana Grande has gone back in time for her highly anticpated 'thank u, next' video, donning iconic 2000s fashion trends and channelling famous scenes from cult 90s and noughties films like Legally Blonde and Bring It On. Note to Hollywood: cast her in more things, please! Grande is the Queen Bee of the pop music scene at the moment, so she fit right into her role as Regina George, the onscreen HBIC, originally played by Rachel McAdams.

Although her comment sounds a little salty and weird, she concludes the caption on a positive note, saying how flattered she is over the fact that Ariana Grande loves Mean Girls so much.

For Legally Blonde, Grande slipped into an all-pink ensemble worthy of Elle Woods (originally played by Reese Witherspoon) and perfected her "bend and snap" with Jennifer Coolidge, who reprised her role as sage nail artist Paulette Parcelle.

Then, Grande struts through the halls of a recreated North Shore High with her Mean Girls lookalikes.

Pete Davidson is huuuuuge - ahem - and we will leave that to you to decipher that one for yourselves. "When you're Ariana Grande, you can get just about anybody".

It features Mean Girls' "army trousers and flip flops" girl (aka Bethany Byrd) and the singer Troye Sivan - but what is the opening sequence actually about?

"Thank U, Next" was first introduced via Twitter.

The OG Cady Lindsay Lohan had something to say about the casting of Gillies in her own "burn book" aka Instagram.

In the preview for the fourth episode (above), the 24-year-old singer and her backup dancers are hanging out in a hotel room when they each decide to "make a list of, like, how to get through rough patches in your life", she explains.

And finally - for those patient readers - the devil is in the detail. In the video, she pastes a photo of her and former fiance Pete Davidson (with parts of his face covered in purple hearts) into the book, and writes "sry I dipped" on the page. Translation: she's sorry, she dumped him.
