Ariana feels "insulted" by the actions of the producers.
Everyone has been absolutely living for Ariana Grande’s performance at the Grammys on Sunday, but now it’s looking like she’s not even attending the award show, let alone performing at it.
Variety has reported that Ariana had a falling out with the producers after they refused to allow her to perform her single ‘7 Rings’ at the show. Ariana reportedly felt “insulted” by this decision, but a compromise was reached for Ari to perform ‘7 Rings’ as part of a medley.
It wasn’t over then, however, as the producers then wanted to choose the second song Ariana would perform as part of her medley. This resulted in Ariana pulling her performance entirely.
Variety has said that other performers at the show did not have to deal with “such stipulations.” The Recording Academy uploaded a series of Instagram stories last night announcing the performers for Sunday’s show, however Ariana’s name was absent.
Now, it’s looking like Ariana isn’t going to the prestigious award show at all, which is a tad awkward as the Grammys really hyped up her performance prior to the dispute.
She is also nominated for two awards on the night, Best Pop Vocal Performance for ‘God Is a Woman’ and Best Pop Vocal Album for 2018’s ‘Sweetener’.

We have a feeling she doesn’t really give AF, however. Her fifth studio album ‘Thank U, Next’ comes out on Friday, so we doubt she’ll let this ruin her buzz.
