Ariana Grande Not Attending Grammys After Disagreements With Producers

Ariana Grande was scheduled to perform at the upcoming Grammy Awards and has been one of the faces in the awards show's promotional campaign, but now it looks like she might not show up at all.

According to Hits, the Florida native had a conflict with producers over which songs she would perform, with a source telling Variety that Grande initially wanted to take the stage with "7 Rings", the latest single from her upcoming album Thank U, Next, which arrives on February 8.

Grande is nominated for two Grammys this year, one for Best Pop Solo Performance for her tune 'God Is a Woman' and the other for her album Sweetener.

The insider claims that producers suggested a medley performance instead, which Ariana is reported to have been on board with.

Other performers at the ceremony, including Camila Cabello, Miley Cyrus and Shaw Mendes, were subject to this kind of scrutiny, according to Variety. Kendrick Lamar and Drake are the top Grammy contenders, earning eight and seven nominations respectively while Brandi Carlile is up for six awards. Officially released on August 17, the record sold an impressive 231,000 "equivalent sales units" in its first week, as reported by Nielsen Music (via Billboard), which represented a major jump from her third record, 2016's Dangerous Woman, which debuted at No. 2, selling just 175,000 units.
