Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” already cemented itself as a 2018 banger, and the official video is a party of its own. Full of classic teen movie tropes and references to Mean Girls, Bring It On, Legally Blonde, and more.
The movie references are fun on their own, all teased by Grande on social media leading up to the video’s release, but the cameos make “thank u, next.”
From Mean Girls‘ original Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett) to Kris Jenner as a cool mom, everyone in the video is having a blast – perhaps none more so than Jennifer Coolidge recreating an entire scene of Legally Blonde with Grande as Elle Woods.
The song talks about Grande’s exes, but the second part is all about self-discovery (“But this one gon’ last / ‘Cause her name is Ari). The movie references are strategic – though they all contain central love stories, they remain iconic because they are stories of female empowerment and a protagonist finding her voice amid all the noise.
And that shit’s amazing.”
Michael B. Jordan demonstrates just how fast his hands are
“Having starred in two Creed movies and probably endured some pretty rigorous physical training, Michael B. Jordan is pretty quick on his feet — and fast with his hands.
On The Late Late Show, Jordan demonstrated to host James Corden just how quick he can actually move them.
In a game of good old try-to-slap-my-hand-before-I-move-it-away, Jordan beat a shrieking James Corden pretty convincingly.
Oh, Michael. Your hands are faster than the speed of our love for you.”

Barbra Streisand talks about calling Tim Cook to complain about Siri in hilarious ‘Carpool Karaoke’ ep
“Not only can Barbra Streisand sing, but she can also tell some pretty awesome stories.
The Carpool Karaoke episode above starts with her rescuing a stranded James Corden from the side of the road, before telling him about how she failed her written driving test three times and once accidentally turned into the up-ramp of a highway.
The highlight, however, has to be her anecdote about the time she called Tim Cook to tell him Siri was pronouncing her name wrong. To be fair, it worked.”
