Looks like Ari reportedly told GRAMMY producers, ‘thank you, next’ when it comes to performing at this Sunday’s show.




**UPDATE: 02/07/19 4:50PM***

Ariana Grande just took to Twitter to tell HER side of the story!

She tweeted an article, with the supposed reason from Grammy’s Producer Ken Ehrlich on why Ariana won’t be performing at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

She then added…

Damn! Don’t come for Ari, she will clap back!!


A source told Variety that Ari was upset when producers refused to let her perform her new single, ‘7 Rings’ (presumably they wanted her to perform one of the songs of which she was nominated for; Ariana is up for for Best Pop Vocal Performance for “God Is a Woman” and Best Pop Vocal Album for 2018’s “Sweetener”).

The strange thing is that no other GRAMMY performer reportedly had such stipulations placed upon them.




‘Royals’ singer Lorde reportedly went through the same thing last year when producers didn’t allow her to perform a song from her Album of the Year-nominated record, ‘Melodrama’; they instead offered a spot during the Tom Petty tribute and she declined.

If Ariana is indeed out of the show, it will mean a few of music’s biggest names won’t be attending, including Drake and Taylor Swift.

Roz and Mocha also had some thoughts…
