Ariana Grande has been teasing her “thank u, next” music video on Instagram, giving fans plenty of throwback eye candy. From 13 Going on 30 to Bring it On and Legally Blonde, everyone’s favorite flicks are present and accounted for. But the biggest draw seems to be the Mean Girls homage — complete with a cameo from Aaron Samuels himself — and Lindsay Lohan has noticed. According to Entertainment Weekly, Lohan posted a sweet message on her Instagram account giving the clips two thumbs up.
Grande teased the Mean Girls tribute with a photo of herself, Courtney Chipolone, Alexa Luria, and Elizabeth Gillies playing the queen bees and wannabes that we all know and love (originally played by Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, and Lacey Chabert). Lohan took notice, blowing virtual kisses to the new cast, but not without a slight burn.
“Ain’t nobody Lindsay Lohan like the real Lindsay Lohan,” she captioned a selfie on Instagram. “But so flattered by @arianagrande loving #MeanGirls so much! Also, I love #dynasty.”
Grande gave her fans a peek last week, letting them know that there would be major star power and a few unexpected appearances. Case in point: Jennifer Coolidge, aka Stifler’s mom and one of the stars of Legally Blonde. There’s no release date set for the video just yet, so devoted Arianators will have to make do with the singer’s teasing.
