Stop what you’re doing right this very instant.

Seriously, whatever it is that you’re doing, just leave it, because there is no way it is more important than this.

Ariana Grande is a Mean Girl

Because Ariana Grande has just dropped her music video for "Thank U, Next."

And it is more important than literally everything.

Or, OK, no, that’s not right.

Obviously some things are more important, though we can’t name anything specifically right at this moment.

But if you’re browing around the web and you found yourself here, in this space, then this is the only thing that matters.

It’s just … this music video is so good?

It barely even makes sense how good it is, honestly.

See, she took a few different iconic teen movies like Mean Girls, Bring It On, and Legally Blonde and then put her own spin on it.

Ariana's New Hair

Remember in Mean Girls when different high school students talked about Regina George and all the wild things she’s done?

In Ariana’s video, we have people like YouTuber Miranda Sings saying "One time on Twitter, I heard Ariana was pregnant, so I got pregnant so we can be pregnant at the same time."

Jonathan Bennett, the actor who played Lindsay Lohan’s love interest, Aaron Samuels in the movie, said "Ariana Grande told me my hair looked sexy pushed back. She’s not wrong."

In a reference to the Pete Davidson engagement, another person said "Ariana broke off an engagement, so I found a guy to propose to me and I broke off an engagement."

So it’s all just these nostalgic scenes from these beloved movies spliced in with Ariana and gossip and drama from her real life.

How can you not love it?!

Next we see Ariana lying on a bed, making a burn book, just like the characters from Mean Girls.

She has pages in the book devoted to her exes — except for Mac Miller.

It’s not in the video, but she revealed on Twitter that his photo is in a frame by her bed for this scene.

On Big Sean’s page, we can see that she wrote "so cute" and "so sweet," and what kind of looks like "could still get it," which is hilarious.

For Ricky Alvarez, she wrote "great dancer," "good times man" and "friends forever," which is very sweet.

Interestingly enough, on Pete’s page she put "I love u always," "HUUUUUUUUGE," and "sry I dipped."

Ariana Grande: Thank U, Next Burn Book

After that, we see Ariana and friends up on a stage doing that classic "Jingle Bell Rock" dance — you remember the one.

But you know in Mean Girls when Regina’s mom, played by Amy Poehler, filmed the whole thing from the audience?


Did we mention how good this video is?

For the second verse, Ariana moved on to Bring It On, complete with a cheerleading routine, and then she threw in a little 13 Going on 30, too.

And for the bridge, this whole big, beautiful Legally Blonde scene happened, including an actual scene with Jennifer Coolidge, the actress who played Elle Woods’ nail tech pal in the movie.

"But wait," you may be wondering, "if she did Legally Blonde, was there a cute little dog in a sweater? Did she bend and snap?"

You know there was, and you know she did.

Really, this whole video is just amazing, and it’s more than we deserve.
