Not only did Ariana Grande release her latest and greatest album, Thank U, Next, on Feb. 8, but she also dropped a music video for the insanely catchy "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored." If you've already watched the video, you might find yourself seeing double thanks to the singer's doppelgänger. So, who is Ariana Grande's lookalike in the "Break Up With Your Girlfriend" video? The girl is none other than Ariel Yasmine, and she's basically the superstar's twin.
In the "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" music video, Yasmine stars as the Grande lookalike and the titular "girlfriend" who's dating the "boyfriend," portrayed by Riverdale's Charles Melton. According to Refinery 29, Yasmine recently did a Q&A on her Instagram Story during which she revealed some fun facts about herself. In her story, she told followers that she is 19 years old, a vegetarian, and is of Spanish, German, and Mexican descent.
It's clear from Yasmine's Instagram account (on which she boasts 70,000 followers) that she also works as a model. Additionally, Grande's music video isn't the first one that she's appeared in. Yasmine has actually appeared in a slew of videos including Kodak Black's "Callin My Shots" and Layto's "Little Poor Me," which she considers to be "one of my favorite music videos I have ever done," as she wrote on Instagram. Hopefully her starring turn in Grande's latest music video may just rank up there with her all-time favorites, as well.
In addition to the fun lookalike moments in Grande's "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" music video, her latest song is also capturing fans' attention for its ties to one of your favorite boy bands. As Billboard noted, the song actually samples one of *NSYNC's hits, "It Makes Me Ill" from their album 2000 No Strings Attached. The publication highlighted that the lyrics from the boy band's hit, which was co-written by Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss, were changed from "You can say I'm crazy, if you want to/ That's true, I'm crazy 'bout you" to "You can call me crazy cuz I want you/ And I never even never f*ckin met you," in Grande's song.
Not only were Arianators everywhere thrilled that she sampled *NSYNC's track, but a member of the popular boy band was also loving Grande's fun track. Lance Bass took to Twitter on Feb. 8 to share some thoughts about the Thank U, Next album including his, rather unsurprising, favorite song off of it. He wrote:
"I might be biased, but 'Break Up w Your Girlfriend' is my favorite track off of @ArianaGrande’s new album!"
Bass also tagged Burruss in his tweet, since she did co-write the sampled track in question. But, she's a little caught up in the Celebrity Big Brother house right now to get in on all of the "Break Up With Your Girlfriend" excitement. He continued, "Right @Kandi?? Oh wait, she’s still in the#BBCeleb house."
From the fun twinning moments or the cool *NSYNC connection, there's clearly plenty of excitement in Grande's "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" music video for you to vibe along to.
