Why Lindsay Lohan Wasn’t Asked To Be In Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” Music Video
The actress revealed that she was not asked to be included in the Mean Girls inspired scenes, but she thought the cast was “so fetch.”
Many are still wondering why wasn’t the OG Mean Girl asked to be part of such an iconic video?
Lindsey Lohan is hard to get in touch with
By now, everyone has seen Ariana Grande’s groundbreaking music video for her song “Thank U, Next”, where she recreates scenes from popular early 2000’s movies such as Bring It On, 13 Going On 30, Legally Blonde, and Mean Girls.
The singer brought in a few pivotal characters from these movies to make cameos in her videos such as Jennifer Coolidge (who played Paulette in Legally Blonde), Jonathan Bennet (who played Aaron Samuels in Mean Girls), and Stephanie Drummond (who played Bethany Byrd in Mean Girls).
But some individuals were sadly not asked, including Lindsay Lohan.
In a recent interview with SiriusXM’s Jenny McCarthy, the actress revealed her thoughts regarding the music video of the year.
Lohan thought the video was “great” and was very surprising nonchalant when asked why she didn’t make a cameo.
“They probably couldn’t get in touch with me, I guess,” Lohan said. “I don’t know. It’s not that easy to just fly in from Dubai.”
Unlike Lohan’s co-stars who made cameos in the video, Ariana Grande’s team never asked the actress to reprise her role of Cady Heron.
Jonathan Bennet was able to reprise role as the ultra hot Aaron Samuels and even quoted one of the movie’s most famous lines, “Ariana Grande told me my hair looked sexy pushed back. She’s not wrong!”
Stephanie Drummond reprised her role as Bethany Byrd, who became known by many Mean Girls fans as the girl who says, “One time, she [Regina George] punched me in the face. It was awesome.”
In the video, Liz Gillies, who is Grande’s friend and former Victorious co-star, portrayed Cady Heron (the resemblance was pretty uncanny). All while suffering a pretty bad spider bite!
When asked if she would have made an appearance in the video, Lohan replied, “If I was in town. Yeah, of course.”
The actress has been pretty busy filming and promoting her new MTV show Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, which is probably why she didn’t have the time to make a cameo in the music video.
Lohan and Bennett talk about the music video
Lindsay Lohan and Jonathan Bennett are set to discuss the actress’s new show as they co-host Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club: After the Show tonight right after the show’s premiere.
There the two will dive into fans hard-hitting questions regarding the season and Bennett is even prepared to ask his fellow co-host what her thoughts are regarding the “Thank U, Next” video she was not asked to be part of.
Even though many of us cannot wait to hear a little gossip surrounding the music video, Lohan and Bennett will also discuss a few nostalgic behind-the-scenes moments they shared while on the set of Mean Girls in 2004.
Lindsay Lohan has no hard feelings towards Ariana Grande and though she was not asked to take part in the music video, she will always commend the singer on her amazing recreation of the cult classic!
