Kris Jenner's cameo in Ariana Grande's 'Thank U, Next' music video is perfection

1 min read


Stop whatever the hell you're doing, mate because the music video for 'Thank U, Next' is here and it is everything you hoped it would be. 

The video for Ariana's new anthem features head nods to classic chick flicks Mean Girls, Bring It On, 13 Going on 30 and Legally Blonde... which we all knew. But what we didn't predict was how amazing Kris Jenner's cameo would be.

When rumours began circulating that a Kardashian or Jenner would feature in the clip, there were theories about it possibly being Kim, Kendall or Kourtney but many assumed 'momager' Kris had won the gig because of her resemblance to Grande's mum. 

Now that the video is out, we're kicking ourselves for not guessing her role earlier. 

Jenner appears early in the piece, taking on Amy Poehler's role as Regina George's OTT mother in Mean Girls. She is seen at the Christmas performance with a video camera recording Grande and her squad as they perform their 'Jingle Bell Rock' dance.

You can almost hear her saying, "You're doing amazing, sweetie!"

Other totally fetch cameos in the vid include Troye Sivan, Jonathan Bennett (the actual Aaron Samuels), Stefanie Drummond (another Mean Girls alum) and Jennifer Coolidge (of Legally Blonde).

Be sure to stick around 'til the very end to see Jenner say, "Thank u, next, b*tch" - it might just be our favourite part.

Now if you'll excuse us, we're going to watch this on repeat for the rest of the day. (The video garnered close to half a million views in under an hour!)

Did anyone else notice she was pregnant during season 3?
