The video, which was inspired by several rom-coms, including 13 Going on 30, Bring It On and Mean Girls, also saw the Grammy nominee take on Jennifer Garner’s role of Jenna Rink, Rachel McAdams’ Regina George and Kirsten Dunst’s Torrance Shipman.

In addition to Grande, the mini movie stars a slew of Hollywood A-listers, including Jonathan Bennett, who reprised his role as Mean Girls’ Aaron Samuels, Kris Jenner, who stood in for Amy Poehler as Mrs. George, and Elizabeth Gillies as Lindsay Lohan’s Cady Heron.

Grande debuted the track, which pays homage to her former flames, in early November, just one month after calling off her engagement to ex-fiancé Pete Davidson.

The song references her relationships with the Saturday Night Live star, as well as exes Big Sean, Ricky Alvarez and Mac Miller, who passed away in September.
