He also said that he never spoke to Grande directly, and instead worked with her management team.

The lyrics include "It's like I'm the universe and you be N-A-S-A" along with Neil Armstrong's voice intones at the beginning of the song saying "That's one small step for woman, one giant leap for womankind".

'NASA', the third track from Ariana Grande's new album thank u, next led to a Twitter exchange between her and the space agency's official account.

Grande has won numerous awards over the years, including MTV Video Music Awards and Teen Choice Awards. For the unversed, Grande was initially supposed to perform at the Grammys but pulled out a few days back as she had a disagreement with Grammy producers over her set list. Her win was announced prior to the ceremony.

Among her biggest hits are " Jolene ", "9 to 5", "I Will Always Love You" and "Islands in the Stream" (with Kenny Rogers). Meanwhile, the "9 to 5" hitmaker was honored as MusiCares Person of the Year two days before the 61st Grammy Awards .

Pink, 39, was nominated for best pop vocal album for "Beautiful Trauma". The Recording Academy announced hours before Sunday's ceremony that Ariana Grande received the honor. Her first reaction was to retweet the announcement, followed by swearing and an emoji.

"I know I'm not there tonight (trust, I tried and still truly wished it had worked out tbh) and I know I said I try not to put too much weight into these things, but f-k", she wrote. "[T] hank you so much". Next singer's tweeted was referring to Cardi B's win, this did not stop Twitter users from speculating she was upset her ex-boyfriend Max had not won for his album Swimming.

But she was passed over in the top Grammy categories of Album, Record and Song of the Year - though her smash hit Thank U, Next, the title song off her new album, dropped after this year's nomination deadline. But she's most grateful to the voters "for being my main source of joy and inspiration always". She posted several photos of herself in her custom Zac Posen gown on Instagram.
