Ariana Grande Claps Back At Grammys Producer For "Lying" About Performance Discussions

Ariana Grande Claps Back At Grammys Producer For

Ariana Grande performs on stage at Billboard Women In Music 2018 on December 6, 2018 in New York City.

Performers at the Grammys include Cardi B, Dolly Parton, Lady Gaga, Travis Scott, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Diana Ross, J Balvin, Camila Cabello, Brandi Carlile, Dan + Shay, H.E.R., Little Big Town, Post Malone, Chloe x Halle and Dua Lipa.

Ariana Grande set the record straight on the real reason she cancelled her Grammys performance, after the show's producer claimed she felt "it was too late" to prepare.

"I'm so proud of you..." About feeling supported. About art and honesty.

Grande dropped her new album, Thank U, Next, on Thursday night, as well as the seductive, unsettling new music video for one of her latest songs, "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored". According to a report earlier today from the Associated Press, Grande and the Grammys clashed over which song she was going to perform.

She also mentioned that a "lack of clarity" over the ceremony kept the Oscars in the headlines. She added the Oscar nominee luncheon on Tuesday "was a very exciting room to be in".

"The producers were dictating what songs she could sing", the source said. The report alleged that Grande and the show's staff agreed to a medley performance of her No. 1 hit "7 Rings" and another song, but that the singer pulled out when producers insisted they'd get to choose the second song.

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. "And it's too bad".

Even though she may not be on the best terms with Ehrlich right now, she still expressed gratitude for her nominations.

Showing her appreciation, she added: "Hope that helps everyone understand my decision". Ehrlich told the New York Times that Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino all turned down offers to perform this year. Well, we can not wait to see what Ariana has in store for her fans with her new album. She had a great album.
