It’s here! It’s here! Ariana Grande finally dropped her much-anticipated “Thank U, Next” video, and it is, as promised, an early-2000s nostalgia dream. She recreates iconic scenes from Mean Girls, Bring It On, 13 Going on 30, and Legally Blonde, and even momager Kris Jenner makes a surprise appearance. Suffice to say it’s perfection.
You’ve probably already watched it 15 times (we definitely have) but even still, you may have missed these fun Easter eggs. Check out all of the sly hints she drops about her past, present, and future.
1There are not one, not two, but THREE references to Pete Davidson’s penis size
His Burn Book page reads “HUUUUGE,” she says he was “cute” and “really big” in the Legally Blonde nail salon scene, and the UPS delivery guy’s name tag reads “BDE,” a reference to Pete’s apparent “Big Dick Energy.” If there were any remaining questions about Pete’s *ahem* prowess, consider them answered.
2Ari seems to confirm she’s the one who broke it off with Pete
On his Burn Book page, she writes, “Sry I dipped.”
3She sends a suggestive shout-out to Big Sean
Umm, note to Big Sean: you “could still get it,” according to your Burn Book page.
4There are at least two call-outs to songs on her next album
Her Legally Blonde license plate reads “7 Rings” and her Mean Girls tee says “Needy,” both reportedly the names of songs on her next album (peace out, Sweetener!).
5The author of The Burn Cookbook, Jonathan Bennett, is holding a copy of his own book
Aaron Samuels FTW.
6She makes a badass statement about the Trump era
During her Legally Blonde scenes, we see Ari reading a book titled Immigration and Refugee Law and Policy.
Ari, you’re doing amazing sweetie.
