Ariana Grande puts her well-established love of princess dresses to work in a new music video for her song "Right There."

The clip, which also stars Patrick "Son of the Governator" Schwarzenegger, features the two youngsters in a modern-day telling of "Romeo and Juliet," with Big Sean (who contributes a guest verse) in the role of the priest.

Does this mean we see Grande gazing wistfully down from a balcony while wearing said princess dress? Oh, yes.

The concept also gives the bubblegum-soul singer an opportunity to bat her eyes behind a bejeweled hand fan and to dive into a swimming pool as a small crew of synchronized swimmers makes elaborate shapes in the water. (Pop & Hiss doesn't recall the latter set piece from Shakespeare's original, but it's been a while.)

"Right There" is the latest single from Grande's excellent debut, "Yours Truly," which last month entered the Billboard album chart at No. 1. Next month she's to take part in KIIS-FM's Jingle Ball -- alongside Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Enrique Iglesias and others -- on Dec. 6 at Staples Center.
