Ariana Grande's "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored" Video Has a Surprise Ending

Catch the plot twist here.

Earlier today, pop queen Ariana Grande dropped her highly-anticipated record thank u, next which includes the titular track as well as other recent bops like “imagine” and “7 rings.” Alongside the 12-track release, she also unveiled a video for the final song on the album “break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored” and unsurprisingly, it’s just as good as we’d hoped.

Whereas her two previous videos have focused on ultra-pink tones, girl power and nostalgia, this one takes on a darker style set across the backdrop of an LA sunrise and a nightclub scene. Riverdale star Charles Melton stars alongside Ariel Yasmine, who takes on the role of an Ariana doppelgänger. Throughout the video we’re led to believe that the artist coaxing Melton to break up with her lookalike, however in true Ari style there’s a powerful plot twist when it turns out the love interest she has in mind is Yasmine instead.

While the video has generally been well-received, some people have spoken out on social media with concerns that Grande is “queerbaiting.” Fans have also shared views that it’s likely that the doppelgänger is intended to be a direct reference to Ariana herself so perhaps the focus, as it has been in other songs on this album, is actually self-love.

Take a look at the official video above and in related news, did you hear Ariana Grande has cancelled her upcoming performance at the 2019 Grammy Awards?
