AceShowbiz – Frankie Grande is the latest star to join in the online “Tiger King: The Musical (A Parody)” craze.
Ariana Grande‘s brother Frankie lent vocals to the project, created by Andrew Lippa – who previously created Broadway shows including “The Addams Family” and “Big Fish“.
His new concept is focused on the story of Joe Exotic, the star of “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” who ran a popular illegal zoo in Oklahoma and was sentenced to 22 years in jail for plotting to kill animal rights activist Carole Baskin and other wildlife violations.
In the latest tune, “Husband Number 2”, Frankie takes on the role of Joe’s late husband Travis Maldonado, donning terrible fake tattoos and a goatee for the tongue-in-cheek clip.
Frankie plays Travis, as well as Joe – and husband number one, the shirtless John Finlay, belting out hilarious lines, including, “I wasn’t gay but didn’t care / you were a famous millionaire / and so / I said I’d take it.”
Also featured is a stuffed tiger and, at the end of the clip, Frankie appears as Carole Baskin – who became a hit with fans amid conspiracy theories she murdered her late husband and fed him to tigers.
He’s not the first star to join the production – Kristin Chenoweth previously played Carole, complete with cat ears, “Beanie Babies”, and the Netflix star’s “Hey all you cool cats and kittens” catchphrase.
