I mean, are you really surprised?
The "Thank U, Next" singer is nominated for two Grammys and was tapped to perform Sunday, but a report this week claimed she backed out after a disagreement with producers and will no longer attend the show.
She went on to explain that she actually proposed three songs that she could perform to the Grammy producer, but the team failed to work with her. "It's about art and honesty".
"I offered 3 different songs", she continued. She's not expected to attend the ceremony, though she tweeted that she is "still grateful for the acknowledgement this year".
Yet another Virginia politician facing questions over yearbook photos showing blackface
Governor, and Attorney General would highlight the yearbook from my graduation a half century ago", he said in a statement . As these old photos resurfaced this past week, another Virginia Democrat was accused of sexual assault .
But the 25-year-old singer showed off her more fierce side this week, as she hit back at Grammys boss, Ken Ehrlich.
Showing her appreciation, she added: "Hope that helps everyone understand my decision. And it's too bad" Erlich told the AP. Producers allegedly agreed to 7 Rings only if performed as part of a medley, but Grande backed out when they insisted on choosing the second song. "I wish her well, I've worked with her a number of times over the years, and let's hope we see you next year". She had a great album. Neither the Recording Academy nor Grande publicly had commented on the speculation - until now.
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.
