Music’s biggest night has just turned up the drama. Ariana Grande has reportedly pulled out of performing during the Grammy Awards on February 10. In addition, she won’t even be attending the show at all, according to sources. So, what happened? Do not mess with Ari’s music, that’s what happened.
Apparently, the 25-year-old felt “insulted” by show producers when they wouldn’t allow her to perform “7 Rings,” a source told Variety. Considering it’s the latest single from her new album that’s dropping two days before the award show, it’s understandable why the pop princess would choose it.
After going back and forth, the brunette beauty was cleared to sing “7 Rings,” but the final straw was when producers ordered for the second song in the lineup to be their choice. The source explained that these constraints were not put on other performers and it sent the “thank u, next” songstress packing.
The former Nickelodeon star is nominated for Best Pop Vocal Performance (“God Is a Woman”) and Best Pop Vocal Album (Sweetener).
There are thousands of fans looking forward to seeing the “Imagine” singer perform during the show and they’ve already been promoting the Florida native’s attendance all over the place. Awwwkward.
The singer has been busy promoting her newest album, Thank U, Next, which drops on February 8. Singles from her fifth studio album have been dropping like crazy and we can’t wait to see the 12 tracks Ari has put together.
Fans can expect the starlet’s personal touch on every detail of this album. She wrote it after the tragic death of Mac Miller and her very public split from Pete Davidson, so it will probably be dripping in intimate details about what she’s been going through.
Time will tell if the Grammy produces will be able to fix this mess.
