Ariana Grande releases music video for ‘The Boy Is Mine’ featuring Penn Badgley

Ariana Grande has premiered the music video for ‘The Boy Is Mine’ featuring You‘s Penn Badgley.

In an inversion of his role in the hit Netflix thriller, in which he plays a stalker, Badgley ends up being the one who’s stalked in the new visuals.

He plays Max, a city mayor tasked with tackling a rat problem which he does by rounding up the local cats and releasing them all at once to kill the rodents. Grande plays a city resident obsessed with Badgley, concocting a love potion to make him fall in love with her.

In one scene, Grande is seen making and then wearing a Catwoman-style costume as she goes to Max’s apartment. She uses her cat claws to carve a round hole in his window and breaks into the building, where she proceeds to attempt to force-feed him the love potion.

In the end, it turns out she doesn’t need it – Max throws it against the wall, takes off her masks and falls for her anyway.

‘The Boy Is Mine’ samples the 1998 hit of the same name by Brandy and Monica. Both of them have cameo appearances in the video, where they play news reporters discussing Max’s plan. Check out the visuals below:

The song is taken from Grande’s recent seventh studio LP, ‘Eternal Sunshine’. In a four-star review of the album, NME shared: “It’s the most sophisticated project yet from a preternaturally talented vocalist who keeps getting better. Whatever you take away from it, ‘Eternal Sunshine’ definitely isn’t an album you’ll want to wipe from memory.”

In other news, the mother of a Manchester Arena bombing victim has said she felt “misled” by Rishi Sunak over plans for stronger protections against terrorism in public places.

Figen Murray is making the push for the change in UK law following the death of her son Martyn Hett in 2017. He was one of 22 people who tragically lost their lives after an explosion happened at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.

Her campaign is for Martyn’s Law, and would require venues and local authorities across the country to have training requirements and preventative plans against terror attacks. She met with the Prime Minister just hours before he called a general election on Tuesday (May 22) for July 4 after she completed a 200-mile walk to Downing Street to discuss the law.

Following the meeting with the PM, Ms Murray said he had promised her he would introduce Martyn’s Law to Parliament before summer recess but could not guarantee the legislation would be passed before the next election.
