Ariana Grande continues to drop more content from the epic homage-filled video for her hit “Thank U, Next.” The singer shared a blooper reel and deleted scene from the visual at midnight Thursday (Jan. 3).
The four-minute video begins with the cut segment, a re-creation of a famous Legally Blonde scene with Jennifer Coolidge. Grande acts as her lawyer, totally nailing Elle Woods’ sassy demeanor and all-pink outfit.
Then come the bloopers: Ariana forgetting her lines, Troye Sivan getting slammed into a locker several times, Kris Jenner channeling the outrageous Mean Girls “cool mom” character even more so than she did in the actual “Thank U, Next” video. There’s so much more than that, but above all, the outtakes show that no one involved had to work too hard to make the video as fun as it looked.
Just before dropping the “Thank U, Next” outtakes, Grande sneakily revealed the title of her next single, “7 Rings.” After a fan asked “what’s the tea on ur next single,” she had no problem giving all the details. “‘twas a pretty rough day in nyc. my friends took me to tiffany’s. we had too much champagne. i bought us all rings. it was very insane and funny. & on the way back to the stu njomza was like ‘bitch, this gotta be a song lol’. so we wrote it that afternoon,” she said about the idea for the song.
Grande didn’t give a release date for “7 Rings,” but for now, you can watch the bloopers and deleted scene from “Thank U, Next” below.
