Singer Ariana Grande isn’t one to take things lying down, y’all. Just a few days before the 2019 Grammys, producer Ken Ehrlich issued a statement revealing why the 25-year-old wouldn’t be performing at this year’s show. But according to the thank u, next songstress, his reasoning couldn’t have been further from the truth. Now, Broadway idol Bette Midler has reached out in support of the singer and Ari couldn’t help but ask if they could chill after reading her kind words. Makes total sense.

“My goodness, I don’t know how I’m just seeing this but hi and thank [you],” she tweeted in response to the 73-year-old’s tweet. “Sending a hug. Wanna come over Sunday night? I’m having a thing … it’s pretty lowkey.”

Please, please say y’all are gonna have a slumber party so we can die happy. Ari is a musical theatre kid at heart, so we’re sure she was dying over this interaction.

“Wildest applause to Ariana for standing up for herself and refusing to be intimidated by lies,” Bette originally said while sharing Ari’s call out tweets to the Grammy producers. Real recognizes real!

“I’ve kept my mouth shut, but now you’re lying about me,” Ari originally tweeted, calling out the producer who issued the statement to the Associated Press. “I can pull together a performance overnight, and you know that, Ken. It was when my creativity [and] self-expression was stifled by you that I decided not to attend. I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more.”

“I offered three different songs,” she continued in a second tweet. “It’s about collaboration. It’s about feeling supported. It’s about art and honesty. Not politics. Not doing favors or playing games. It’s just a game y’all … And I’m sorry, but that’s not what music is to me.” Well said, Ari.

“As it turned out when we finally got the point where we thought maybe it would work, she felt it was too late for her to pull something together for sure,” Ken Ehrlich said in his statement about why Ariana wouldn’t be performing, but reportedly she was actually left feeling “insulted” after the producers wouldn’t allow her to perform her current single, “7 rings.”
