After ending her short-lived engagement, pop princess Ariana Grande turned pain into art with her smash viral hit “thank u, next.” The song had the internet in shambles, especially with fans trying to rack their brains with theories over which ex-boyfriend taught her “love, patience and pain.” While the verdict is still out on that, a week later, R&B soulstress Jhené Aiko was seen sporting new ink with a very evident cover up of her infamous Big Sean tattoo. The private and seemingly perfect pair have yet to confirm (or deny) the breakup rumors that immediately began to swirl, but the “New Balance” singer did admit she covered up the tatt simply because it didn’t “match” her new vision.
The highly anticipated visual for “thank u, next” broke the internet last Friday (Nov. 30) and paid homage to classic movies and romantic comedies like Mean Girls, 13 Going on 30, Bring It On and Legally Blonde. During the Mean Girls portion, Ari portrayed iconic “Queen of the Plastics,” Regina George with the burn book to match. Fans immediately noticed that all of her exes, except Mac Miller, were featured. She called Ricky Alvarez a “great dancer” and considered them “friends forever.” Her ex-fiance Pete Davidson’s page read “srry I dipped. I love u always.”
The Dangerous Woman songbird also said he’s “so cute, so sweet.” Despite the bold yet flirty message, many didn’t take endearing compliment so lightly, especially considering he might still be in a whole relationship with his TWENTY88 co-star.
Yet, you can still watch the adorable video, below.
