Kris Jenner Makes The Best Cameo In Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" Video


The Mean Girls-Legally Blonde crossover is finally here

Ariana Grande has revealed the visuals to "thank u, next," and it's everything we hoped for and more.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that the singer reunited the cast of Mean Girls, as well as brought along former Victorious castmate Elizabeth Gillies to take on the role of Cady Heron, for the song's visuals. What we definitely didn't see coming was Kris Jenner popping out of the audience, camera in hand, taking her signature "You're doing amazing, sweetie" to new heights as she steps into shoes once filled by Amy Poehler.

As rumored, the video included references to Legally Blonde, 13 Going On 30, and Bring It On, arguably making it the most ambitious crossover in history. Legally Blonde star Jennifer Coolidge chats boys with Ari in the nail salon, where Grande makes the inevitable BDE reference (except, instead of dicks, they say teeth... but they're definitely talking about dicks).

My personal favorite part? The ultra-adorable domestic moments with Matt Bennett, aka Robbie on Victorious. I'm so here for Ari being single but, like, please date.

Ari kept the fans company as they patiently awaited the video, interacting with tweets and answering questions, even trying to get the video premiere to speed up so that one fan could go to sleep. It didn't quite work out, but that's okay. The wait was so worth

Catch every glorious detail as you watch the video, below.

I'm cackling

Last year, Balenciaga released bright red square-toed mules which bore a striking resemblance to McDonald's french fry cartons. Now, the chain has fired back at the designer, threatening to release its own version of the shoes.

McDonald's Sweden posted a photo to its Instagram of a person wearing actual McDonald's fry cartons as shoes, and honestly, if there weren't yellow M's printed onto them, I'd have a hard time distinguishing them from the Balenciagas from a distance. Though the post doesn't directly reference the Balenciaga shoes, one can only assume that's who they are trolling.

McDonald's version actually makes for some pretty fly slip-ons, if you ask me. Good thing the Swedish branch of Mickey D's seems to be considering releasing the shoes if the post receives enough attention. The caption of the Instagram post translates to, "If we get 103042 likes we release these for real," though it only has about 17,000 as of publish time. These would likely cost much less than the Balenciaga shoes, which cost $545.

Internet, do your thing. I want a pair.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.
