Ariana Grande Fires Back at Grammy Producer for "Lying" About Her

Ariana Grande at 2018 iHeartRadio in Los Angeles. More

The 25-year-old singer, who is nominated for two awards, was asked to perform at the event and she couldn't come to an agreement with producers over what songs would be performed.

Though this year's edition of the annual music awards show has featured Ariana Grande prominently in their marketing, the star will not even be attending the ceremony, much less performing.

That characterization didn't fly with Grande, though.

"I offered 3 different songs", she continued.

Rumour has it Grande is already working on a new album - or at least she's writing songs that might just end up on one. Her image had been used in Grammys advertising.

Ariana Grande pulls Grammy performance after spat over music, report says
After releasing her fifth studio album, " thank u, next ", Ariana Grande was reportedly supposed to perform at the 2019 GRAMMYs . But the 25-year-old singer has made it clear before: she's not a pushover in this industry.

The 7 Rings singer said she is not prepared to engage in "playing games" with organisers, after comments made by Ehrlich in which he claimed Grande could not "pull something together" last-minute for the show. Having befriended the couple, they invite her to a house party and she shows up having ditched her blonde hair in favor of a black, tightly-pulled ponytail that makes her look exactly like her love interest's new girlfriend. "According to the report, producers wouldn't let her sing her latest hit, "7 Rings", but finally reached "a compromise" so that "'7 Rings' would be part of a medley". "It's about art and honesty", Ariana said. "It's just a game y'all. and I'm sorry but that's not what music is to me".

But a furious Ariana took to Twitter to set the record straight.

Variety initially reported that Grande pulled out of the show after producers allegedly put restrictions on her song choices that they did not place on other performers.

Showing her appreciation, she added: "Hope that helps everyone understand my decision". "I am still grateful for the acknowledgment this year".

The Grammys will be held on Sunday 10 February in Los Angeles and will be hosted by Alicia Keys.
