Pop diva Ariana Grande went the Kardashian Family route for her new “Thank U, Next” music video. New reports claim the crooner decided to recruit reality TV star Kris Jenner for tomorrow’s premiere.
According to reports, Jenner is slated to grace the screen of her Mac Miller-targeted visual.
Yes, TMZ has learned Kris Jenner is the mystery Kardashian who scored the cameo role. Take that, Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kylie, Kendall … and Rob. As we first reported … Ariana’s music vid — which is an homage to several famous chick flicks — drops on Friday, and the big question was which Kardashian she’d lined up to make their dancing debut.

Earlier this month, Ariana dropped the song and addressed various ex-boyfriends including late hip-hop artist Mac Miller.
“Thought I’d end up with Sean/But he wasn’t a match/Wrote some songs about Ricky/Now I listen and laugh/Even almost got married/And for Pete I’m so thankful/Wish I could say thank you to Malcolm [Miller]/Cause he was an angel” (“Thank U, Next”)
Hours before it dropped, buzz and speculation developed on Grande’s personal song.
Record label sources tell TMZ, the overarching theme of the song — titled “Thank u, next” — is empowerment … what she’s been through in her relationships and other experiences. We’re told it is not a diss track. Our sources say she specifically names Pete, Mac and others … but she doesn’t go after Pete the way she did earlier this week after he publicly joked about their breakup. She had accused him of being a hypocrite … pretending he wasn’t into being in the spotlight yet hanging on for dear life. (TMZ)
On “Saturday Night Live,” her ex-fiancé Pete Davidson kept things 100 on the split.
Ninety minutes later on “Saturday Night Live,” Davidson made his own statement during the show’s “Weekend Update” segment, concluding his raucous guest spot by saying, “I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is, it’s nobody’s business. Sometimes things just don’t work out and that’s okay. She’s a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world. Now please go vote on Tuesday, alright?” (Variety)
