Ariana Grande a no-show despite winning first Grammy Award


If Ariana Grande wants it, she got it.

The chart-topper released her fifth album Thank U, Next before lashing out at producer Ken Ehrlich after he told United States media the 25-year-old Ariana Grande "felt it was too late for her to pull something together".

- Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) February 10, 2019i 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 fuck. this is wild and lovely. thank you so much.

The 25-year-old singer was not at the show after she had a dispute with the producers and she watched from home. Ken said Grande's response was "a surprise".

In a series of since-deleted tweets, the "Thank U, Next" artist expressed frustration that the family of her late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller was invited to the Grammys despite the fact that Miller would lose out in his category - best rap album - to Cardi B. She wrote that he could have not one song but a whole album dedicated to him.

Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine however he admitted he never spoke to Ariana directly but worked with her management team and insisted he usually "does not have this happen".

'I've kept my mouth shut but now you're lying about me, ' Ariana shared on Twitter after reading his remarks. In an interview, Ehrlich claimed that the vocalist "felt it was too late for her to pull something together for sure". Ask H.E.R. who's in this show.

'I don't know if I'm good at anything else, but I understand artists and I can hear other artists in an artist, ' he said.

Despite being nominated, Ariana was not attending the event herself after she reportedly fell out with producers over which songs she could perform on the night, according to The Daily Mail.
