Men In Black: International was released today, and though the movie has made quite a few updates to the original 1997 storyline, the writers reportedly decided to integrate some of the nostalgic jokes from the first film.
Such as: most celebrities are actually extraterrestrials.
The first Men in Black, starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, joked that well-known celebrities like Dionne Warwick, Elvis Presley, and Danny DeVito are aliens wearing human suits. In Men in Black 3, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber were included in the joke. So who made the cut for MIB: International?
Refinery29 reports that co-stars Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth actually got a say in which celebrities they wanted to make cameos. Ariana Grande made the cut, as well as Donald Glover, JJ Abrams, and more.
As HelloGiggles writes, Grande was an obvious choice “with her heavenly voice, always-upbeat personality, and miles of hair to hide the zipper in the back of her human skin, it’s all of a sudden very obvious that she’s an extraterrestrial.”
And the hints just keep adding up, as HelloGiggles highlights. The 25-year-old singer has recently been touring, which includes space-themed sets. Her latest album Thank U, Next also includes a song called "NASA," which then led her to actually visit the NASA Space Center for a private tour.
Maybe Ariana is doing reconnaissance work for her own planet?
MIB: International is currently in theaters.
