Ariana Grande Refutes Grammy Producer’s Explanation For Cancelled Performance

Ariana Grande Refutes Grammy Producer’s Explanation For Cancelled Performance

Ghostin is a song about "feeling badly for the person you're with bc you love somebody else. feeling badly bc he can tell he can't compare. and how I should be ghosting him", the singer tweeted. "I can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken".

The song is about Grande taking time and space to self-discover and be on her own for a night.

The star went on to shade the producer and the team behind the event some more, arguing that 'It is about collaboration.

Ariana Grande has accused the organisers behind the Grammy Awards of "lying" and "playing games". "I am still grateful for the acknowledgement [sic] this year", Grande tweeted.

However, it sounds like she will not be there to accept the honor in case she wins.

First she exposes why she won't be performing at Sunday's Grammys.




The Thank U, Next album was released this morning and fans clearly couldn't wait to listen to the full track list, boosting the album to the top of the charts.

A series of personal moments, including the death of her ex-partner Mac Miller and her break-up with fiancé Pete Davidson, prompted a quick turn-around in writing and recording.

When Ehrlich's interview was released, Grande took to Twitter to call the producer out for spreading false information. "And it's too bad". "It's about art and honesty. It's just a game y'all. and I'm sorry but that's not what music is to me".

Not only did the singer post a brand new music video for her song, "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored", but she also dropped her latest album, "thank u, next".

"Hope that helps everyone understand my decision", she tweeted. Sources said that Grande felt "insulted" when producers pushed back on her choice to perform her new single "7 Rings" and suggested that she perform a medley that began with the song and then transitioned into a song they chose. "But, boy, don't trip (Don't trip), you know this isn't real/You should know I'm temporary".

Some of these perceived biases have been percolating for some time but especially in the a year ago following remarks last January by Recording Academy president Neil Portnow that women need to "step up" to gain more recognition at music events like Grammys. She's a great artist.
