Ariana Grande premieres new album thank u, next: Stream

Despite her absence, there will be a slew of artists taking the Grammys stage, including Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Janelle Monáe, Post Malone, Dan + Shay, Kacey Musgraves and Shawn Mendes.

Ariana Grande claims she pulled out of performing at the Grammy awards because her creativity and self-expression was stifled by the producers. Thank U, Next arrived on February 8, and in one song, "Ghostin", Ariana sings about how her ex, Mac Miller's, death took a toll on her engagement to Pete Davidson.

When the Grammys ruled against that it was suggested instead that Ariana Grande perform a medley of songs which included her latest hit.

"It's about collaboration. It's about feeling supported", Grande tweeted.

Grande remains one of the biggest pop stars in the world, with 144 million Instagram followers and 60 million on Twitter. She may not be your style but personally I think she has the best vocal ability of her generation.

A similar thing happened with Lorde at last year's ceremony, with bosses reportedly refusing to let her perform a song from her Melodrama album.

She went on to defend herself through a series of tweets. "And it's too bad" Erlich told the AP.

Ariana Grande performs on stage at Billboard Women In Music 2018 on December 6, 2018 in New York City.

In the bouncier bop Bloodline she turns hardheaded, likely referring to Davidson: "Don't want you in my bloodline, yeah/Just wanna have a good time".

Shortly after AP published the interview on Thursday, Grande took to social media to present her side of the story.

Well, we can not wait to see what Ariana has in store for her fans with her new album.

Ariana also addressed her loyal fans, saying she hoped they understood her decision and that she was still grateful for the "acknowledgement" she received this year. It's just a game y'all...
