Ariana Grande Did Not Approve One ‘Tiger King’ Couple For the ‘Stuck With U’ Music Video

Being stuck at home isn’t always bad. Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber make that pretty clear with their newest music video and single. One popular couple from Netflix’s Tiger King, however, didn’t make the cut. Here’s why Ariana Grande decided not to include Carole and Harold Baskin in her music video for “Stuck With U.”

Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber debuted their song and music video for ‘Stuck With U’

As a fundraiser for the First Responders Children’s Foundation, Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber released a duet together, titled “Stuck With U.” The music video for this song included Justin and Hailey Bieber taking a walk together and the introduction of Ariana Grande’s new boyfriend, Dalton Gomez.

Other celebrity couples made an appearance in the music video, dancing in their homes together. One couple who did not make an appearance was Carole Baskin and her current husband, Harold. According to Ariana Grande’s Twitter account, the Tiger King duo didn’t make the cut.

Seven hours prior to the premiere of “Stuck With U,” some fans of both musicians took to Twitter to share their excitement. To promote their new song, Justin Bieber sent out a tweet of the song playing the background of one couple. The couple in question was very familiar to all the cool cats and kittens out there. 

It was Carole Baskin and Howard Baskin of the Netflix documentary series Tiger King, smiling and dressed in their best cat print. The tweet earned a number of likes from fans. However, Ariana Grande wasn’t exactly happy with this clip. She responded to the social media post, sharing that she barred this clip from appearing in the official music video for “Stuck With U.” 

“For the record, I did not allow or approve this clip to be in the actual video. But. Nonetheless. It exists and that’s…. unique. Anyway, 7.5 hours,” Ariana Grande replied.

Turns out, Ariana Grande isn’t a fan of Carole Baskin

“Stuck With You” takes on a new meaning with these two. As one of the main characters from Netflix’s documentary series, viewers had some mixed opinions regarding this “character.” There’s some speculation regarding Carole Baskin and her relationship with her late husband, although the big cat enthusiast has since denied these allegations.

Ariana Grande may not exactly be a “big cat” person, but she does have a few dogs and even a pet pig, named Piggy Smallz. She’s often talking about her dog, Toulouse, who made the cover of Vogue Magazine and appeared in several of Grande’s music videos, including “7 Rings.”

Ariana Grande has always been a huge fan of animals, though. In 2013, she shared that she’s 100% vegan. Earlier during the democratic primary, the artist shared her support for longtime climate change activist, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders

Music by Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber, including their recently released single “Stuck With U,” is available on most major streaming platforms.
