Ariana Grande has shared the blooper reel and deleted scene from her hit music video ‘thank u, next’. Check it out below.
The video, which broke Youtube records upon its release, pays tribute to the iconic ‘00s movies Mean Girls, Bring It On, 13 Going On 30, and Legally Blonde, as well as boasting a number of big name cameos.
The new behind-the-scenes video opens with a deleted clip in which ‘lawyer’ Ariana tries to convince Jennifer Coolidge to confront her ex, based on a scene from Legally Blonde, using NSFW language to get her dog back.
As well as some swearing from Troye Sivan, another blooper offers some sage advice from Kris Jenner.
“When I was raising Ariana I always told her that if a guy ever fucks with her, she should just say “thank U, next”,” says Jenner. “And if she ever had sex without a condom, she would get Chlamydia… and die!”
“We put all of our past experiences in here and we write really nice things about them because, honestly, each person we’ve shared a little part of our self with has contributed to the people we are today and to our growth,” Grande said of the “burn book” in the video.
“[They’ve] probably helped us practice certain activities and get better at certain things, including loving ourselves. So this is a thank you, next book, which is very different from the burn book – so legal, don’t come for me. It’s a thankful book. You should make one.”
