Everybody went oh-my-gaga when Ariana Grande revealed that she will be referencing “Mean Girls” in her highly-anticipated music video, “thank u, next”.
There’s plenty to be excited about since 2 OG film stars – Jonathan Bennett and Stefanie Drummond – will be returning to reprise their roles. Fans are also ecstatic at how eerily similar “Dynasty” star Elizabeth Gillies looks like Cady Heron. So what does the original Cady Heron, Lindsay Lohan, thinks of the casting choice?
“Behind the scenes 🎬 ain’t nobody Lindsay Lohan like the real Lindsay Lohan. But so flattered by @arianagrande loving #MeanGirls so much! Also, I love #dynasty,” the 32-year-old actress caption her Instagram post with a behind-the-scenes selfie. Lilo is currently on the set of the Netflix drama series “Dynasty”.
Lohan wrote that she’s “flattered” that Grande loves the 2004 original movie so much that she’s using it as an inspiration. It’s a pat on the back, saying she did THAT, and now pop girls are using her work as a reference point.
Here’s the real shade though: despite tagging Grande, Lohan couldn’t be bothered to mention Elizabeth Gillies by name or tag her. “Also, I love #dynasty” implies that Lohan knows that Gillies is playing her former character. Oh, the shade!
Besides “Mean Girls”, “thank u, next” will also be paying homage to iconic chick flicks like “Bring It On”, “13 Going on 30” as well as “Legally Blonde”.
