Ariana Grande pulls out of Grammys 'over fights with show bosses'


A source close to the situation stated that these preconditions weren't enforced on any of the other performers - like Cardi B, Shawn Mendes and Miley Cyrus.

The singer, who was set to perform during Sunday's broadcast, has dropped out of the awards show altogether after a disagreement with producers over artistic control, according to a Variety report.

After releasing her fifth studio album, "thank u, next", Ariana Grande was reportedly supposed to perform at the 2019 GRAMMYs. While producers eventually compromised by allowing Ari's latest single to be part of a medley, the songstress ended up pulling out after producers insisted that they get to choose the second song.

An insider reportedly told Variety that Grande was "insulted" by the way she was treated.

Despite being the face of the 2019 ceremony after being plastered all over billboards, the singer is thought to have made a decision to cancel any appearance after show producers at first refused to allow her to sing her new single 7 Rings. Both sides were thereby at an impasse in negotiations, to which the Grammy's counteroffered Lorde a spot in the Tom Petty tribute performance. "I want to do it on my own terms from now on", Ariana told Billboard for her "Woman of the Year" cover story in December 2018.

With this development, the Grammys find themselves not only without a twice-nominated artist whom they have been using to promote the show, but also without one of the most vital artists of the moment. But she has also played triumphant concerts, including the "One Love Manchester" benefit staged just two weeks after the tragedy, and released a triumphant No. 1 album and a string of recent blockbuster singles - with "Thank U, Next", arriving Friday, just a few months after the release of "Sweetener".
