Ariana Grande has a very handsome costar in her latest music video "Right There."
The clip pays homage to the great Shakespearean classic and stars the always-dreamy Patrick Schwarzenegger as Romeo and the 20-year-old brunette beauty as his Juliet. Collaborator Big Sean portrays the priest. No love triangle (or Paris) in this adaptation.
The upbeat video begins with the pop star getting dolled up with her friends before the glamorous masquerade ball, while the 20-year-old model is en route with some buddies. Grande looks elegant in a puffy corset-style pale pink gown with gold detail, while Schwarzenegger is donning a black jacket with ruffled sleeves, a white lace shirt and black pants and boots.
Grande makes her highly anticipated entrance, avec a pink fan, while Schwarzenegger needs to climb a gate to bust into the bash and meet his Juliet. And when he does, they lock eyes, exchange some adorable smiles and fall for each other. Grande serenades her man from a balcony, appearing as if she could almost bust out "Romeo! Romeo Wherefore art thou Romeo?"
Cue the scenes that can't help us think of star-crossed lovers Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes sharing some intimate kisses in the swimming pool in Baz Luhrmann's 1996 flick. This version features Grande singing to the costumed partygoers who jump in the pool and gold-clad synchronized swimmers with red caps. And a steamy close embrace in the water, nose-to-nose with Schwarzenegger.
We can also safely assume that when Grande holds up her fan to conceal their faces towards the end of the song, the duo are sharing a sweet kiss.
Why be shy?!
