Anticipation was high for Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber's new music video for Stuck With U, and as part of the lead up to the all virtual affair, they asked for people to submit their own quarantine videos, which had a chance to be included in the final product. Sounds cool right? Well it was, but there was one video submission that was not included in the final cut, and that would be Tiger King's Carole Baskin. The Tiger Sanctuary owner and her husband Howard (along with their cat Pearlie) submitted a video of the two dancing in their old Fur Ball gala outfits. Bieber shared the video on social media, but Grande was quick to point out that the clip was not going to be in the final video.
Grande replied to the video with the comment "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 !"
The final video did not end up including Baskin, though as she told TMZ, she was asked by some of Bieber's friends to film and submit a video, but wasn't told whether it would be making the final cut. She was happy that Bieber shared the video on social though, adding that she hopes "it doesn't attract too many of the haters who have been bashing us since being misled by 'Tiger King.'"
