Grande makes a bold move in her music video for her "Break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored."

In the material, she falls in love with a man who attends a party with his girlfriend. As the scenes get more intense, she shows a desire to win his heart and even goes extreme by copying his girlfriend's style: hair, eyes, outfit and makeup.

She brings the biggest plot twist when she sings, "Then I realize she's right there / and I'm at home like 'D--- this ain't fair?'" — an implication she probably wants the girlfriend instead.

The 30-year-old pop icon delivers jaw-dropping visuals in her music video for "God is a Woman."

At some point in the clip, she lies in a pool of paint while only hiding her chest with the dye. The scenes intensify when white men appear to throw degrading words at her — though they keep bouncing off of her to show she is "untouchable."

The last scene of the music video ultimately remakes Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam, replacing the men with women.

Ahead of Grande's Eternal Sunshine release, she dropped the visual for "we can't be friends (wait for your love)" on March 8.

The music video, which offers homage to Jim Carrey's 2004 film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, begins with a scene where Grande checks the "yes" option under the statement, "You have given extensive thought behind your decision and give 'Brighter Days Inc.' the exclusive permission to remove this person completely from your memory."

Named Peaches, Grande enters the operation room and undergoes the procedure to finally forget that person.

"I didn't think you'd understand me/ How could you ever even try," she sings while the nurse starts preparing her for the procedure. "I don't want to tip-toe, but I don't want to hide/ But I don't want to feed this monstrous fire."

The music video also has a 1980s-style video game arcade before portraying Carrey's sci-fi drama.

In the end, it delivers the importance of self-acceptance and finding strength in every chapter of one's life.
