Grande reacted with dignity and bravery to a suicide bomber at her concert, returning to the city two weeks later for the One Love concert.

Ehrlich told The Associated Press that Grande isn't performing at the Grammys and that the Recording Academy wanted her to perform after having "conversations over the past month or so".

Shortly after AP published the interview on Thursday, Grande took to social media to present her side of the story. Not politics. Not doing favors or playing games. "She felt like she was not being appreciated or respected as an artist so she has made a decision to skip the Grammys altogether", a source close to the 25-year-old singer told HollywoodLife.

Pop star Ariana Grande posted a statements about Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich on Twitter.

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.

Grande disagreed with this assessment, tweeting out: "I've kept my mouth shut, but now you're lying about me".

Grande had been promoting this year's 61st Annual Grammy Awards before pulling out.

Frank Robinson (1935-2019), trailblazing Major League Baseball manager and Hall of Fame player
Robinson led the Orioles to their first championship that October. " Frank Robinson and I were more than baseball buddies". But by 1965, despite hitting 33 home runs and driving in 113 runs, Red's management considered him old and expendable.

Fans are way more excited about her music videos than they are about seeing her perform live at the Grammys, especially if you aren't there. "It was when my creativity & self-expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend".

"It's about collaboration. It's about feeling supported".

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.

Rappers Kendrick Lamar and and Drake lead the nominations with eight and seven nominations respectively.

The ceremony takes place this Sunday night, February 10.
