For the movie references, I saw "Mean Girls", "Bring It On", and "Legally Blonde".

The video was cute at best. The first scenes were fun but the rest was kind of boring. And talking about boring : it wasn’t easy listening to these 3 minutes and something. Can’t believe THIS song made her have a number 1.

I still love the song but i expected something more from the music video, i can't really explain it. :(

Yes i pretty much agree with you tyguy.

I expected so much more from this video.

The video and the sobg doesn't match at all for me.

Cute but very Katy Perrish.

She probably wouldn't want Lindsay to mistakenly think she is a friend and bother her for the next two years afterwards. At least with Jonathan Bennett we might get Ari as a guest judge on Cake Wars :lol:

I guess her and Troy Sivan are genuine friends as his cameos were pointless.

I thought the video would have a storyline. Disappointed.

I enjoy the music video and all those cameos and the references to iconic movies.
However, I enjoyed the first minute the most. I was hoping for the music video to have a plot as well - especially since this song's kinda personal.

That said, it's another enjoyable and great music video by Ariana. If you compare this + her Sweetener music videos to her "My Everything" days... miles apart.

‘Right There’ tried to have a storyline but she just spends the entire video waving a fan in front of her face. Seriously I’m not exaggerating, rewatch the video - that’s all she does.

The video is essentially a parody. But what got me about the song was the lyrics and how personal they were. For me it's a complete mismatch :-?

4. BLACKPINK - Ddu-Du Ddu-Du 36.2m
5. PSY - Gentleman 36.0m

She's already at +13m views under 4 hours so she's definitely gonna break it. People in Asia, Australia & NZ just woke up.

Such a great video wasted on a song like this.
Girls' Generation

Girls' Generation is the best-selling girl group of all time.

Yeah, It was known as Suddenly 30 here. It's like a 2000-2004 movie homage this video.
