Ariana Grande breaks down her most “iconic” music videos
For the “thank u, next” music video, Ariana once again teamed up with Hannah to recreate all of her favorite scenes from all of her favorite movies.
“No one is more right to do this than Hannah. She turned something that felt so torrential at the time of my life into something that felt fun and lighthearted, at least while we were doing it,” said Ariana to the director. “And what I was able to share with the world was brilliant and beautiful.”
Dishing that the duo was actually spinning “Breathin'” out of Sweetener when they came up with the concept for the video for “thank you next,” Ariana said she loved playing Regina Gorge and Elle Woods.
The superstar continued, “Playing Jenna Rink was a dream come true. I couldn’t believe it, Jennifer Garner even reposted it. And I love her so much.”
Fans will remember Jennifer raving about Ariana on instagram at the time.
Another thing that got Ariana excited was working with Jennifer Coolidge. The Boca Raton native, who says she’s “a huge comedian” and lists Best of Show as her “favorite movie,” revealed that Jennifer (who was also in that movie) recreated all of her looks from Revenge of a Blonde especially for video.
“Which has been the greatest honor of my entire life,” Ariana said, adding, “I worship her.”
“You should see the snippets,” she teased, “they’re so funny.”
