Music sensation Ariana Grande has gone viral on TikTok recreating a sound from the movie ‘Mean Girls’ for her r.e.m. beauty range.

Thanks to TikTok’s rapid rise in popularity, the platform has seen countless huge celebrities make accounts and start joining in on some of the most viral trends, including Kim Kardashian, Will Smith, and more.

Singer and actress Ariana Grande has been on the platform for a few years now, and has over 27 million followers on her account where she posts snippets from her music videos and other promotional material.

But at the start of May, Grande surprised fans by posting a video on the TikTok account for her makeup brand r.e.m. beauty in which she recreated an iconic sound from popular movie ‘Mean Girls.’

In the clip, she is first wrapped up in a coat when she says the line, ‘I can’t go out, I’m sick,’ while fake coughing. After throwing something at the camera, she seamlessly transitions into a new look showcasing some of the items from her beauty range.
