Ariana Grande’s hit single “Thank U, Next” has been at the top of the world for some time now, and all the while, Grande has shared as much content related to the song and its rom-com-inspired video as possible. In one of the behind-the-scenes clips she posted in December, Grande teased a deleted scene with Jennifer Coolidge that didn’t find its way into the final cut.
