Grammy nominated singer Ariana Grande has officially joined the cast of Zoolander 2. This comes as good news for the singer as she is still dealing with the doughnut licking incident that occurred recently. Along with Grande, Oscar winner Susan Sarandon has also been cast into the flick and in a recent interview spoke about her co-star as well as the controversy that surrounds her “Well, I just worked with Ariana,” she said. We did Zoolander 2 together, in Rome. She couldn’t be more professional or sweet. Her mom is great. Clearly her remarks were taken out of context. But of all the things if only that energy was put to the study of the effects of GMOs, which affect your health a lot more than licking a doughnut. People should be outraged by what Monsanto is doing, not Ariana. She’s smart, and she’s a really great, very talented person. It’s just ridiculous they’re jumping on her the way they are.”

Grande and Sarandon join a cast that includes Ben Stiller in the titular role, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wigg, Will Ferrell, Penelope Cruz, Billy Zane, Justin Bieber and Fred Arminsen. The film is also directed by Ben Stiller and will be released February 12, 2016
