Penn Badgley on Working With Ariana Grande in 'Boy Is Mine' Video: 'The Pleasure Was All Mine'

The former 'Gossip Girl' hunk says, 'the pleasure was all mine,' as he thanks Ariana Grande for casting him in her latest music video along with two iconic artists Brandy and Monica.

AceShowbiz - Penn Badgley loves the experiences of working with Ariana Grande for his part in her latest music video for "The Boy Is Mine". The "You" actor, age 37, took to Instagram on Friday, June 7, to share his gratitude and behind-the-scenes moments from the set, including a heartwarming photo with Grande and the music video director, Christian Breslauer.

In the post, Badgley, dressed in a sleek white dress shirt and slacks, is depicted alongside Grande, who stuns in a black leather Catwoman-esque costume. Breslauer, seen holding a glass of champagne, appears at ease with his stars.

"The boy may be yours but the pleasure was all mine @arianagrande thank you for inviting me into your orbit for a moment & @christhedirector for building a little world to play in for a day," captioned Badgley.

His post also highlighted the delight of working with Brandy and Monica, iconic artists behind the original 1998 hit by the same name. "Hey ma I'm in a music video! And in the presence of @brandy and @monicadenise ?? Honored to be alongside these icons [love emojis]," he added.

The connections and genuine excitement didn't end with Badgley. Grande herself shared similar sentiments on her social media, posting the same and additional photos of the production. One standout image shows Grande and Badgley attentively listening to Breslauer as he explains his creative vision. She cryptically captioned the series, "the boy is mine," in her signature style.

The video plot follows Grande, as she crafts a love potion to make the fictional Mayor Max Starling (Badgley) fall for her. This narrative is a modern twist on the 'bad girl anthem' concept, one which Grande admitted was risky yet thrilling to create.

"In a way, I was kind of like, 'This is a very bad idea.' But there is a large group of my fans that really do love a bad girl anthem, and this is an elevated version of that," she explained during an interview with Apple Music 1's Zane Lowe in March.

The track itself is part of Grande's seventh studio album, "Eternal Sunshine", and it offers a fresh take on the beloved R&B classic. Grande initially teased the collaboration with Badgley through a clever TikTok post on June 3, which sparked significant anticipation. The finished music video has not only captured the audience's attention but also showcased unique storytelling and the vibrant chemistry between its stars.
