Ariana Grande: Grammys producer is ‘lying about me’

He also explained that artists are encouraged not to perform new songs because it could potentially give the singer the edge for a Grammy next year when the song becomes eligible for an award. Even though she's not going to the Grammys this year, we think she'll be just fine.

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. "And I'm puttin" you through more than one ever should / And I'm hating myself "cause you don't want to / Admit that it hurts you". "It's about collaboration. It's about feeling supported", she wrote.

The ceremony will come two days after Ariana Grande released her latest album - Thank U, Next - which came out on Friday.


The undercurrent of unintended sexual chemistry between Ariana and the girlfriend also adds to the disorienting feel of the video, in which the singer's motivations and desires seem to be in flux, and maybe even unknown to her as well. Grande refuted the report that she didn't offer up options to the show, clarifying that she had three different songs for them to choose from and instead of collaborating, she was shut down. "It's about art and honesty".

NASA is the title of a song on Grande's Thank U, Next and includes the refrain of "I'ma need space". Not politics. Not doing favors or playing games.

"He just comes to visit me/ When I'm dreaming every now and then". "And it's too bad".


Grande's song "7 rings" debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, and, according to Nielsen Music, it also debuted at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart with 85.3 million USA streams in the week ending January 24.

A rep for the Recording Academy did not immediately respond to our request for comment. She had a great album.

Grande is up for two awards on Sunday: best pop solo performance for God Is A Woman, and best pop vocal album for Sweetener.


His reasoning is that the Grammys platform might unfairly give "7 Rings" a better shot at winning next year when it becomes eligible, so they prefer artists stick to the music for which they received their nominations this year.
