And now, Ariana has broken her silence on the matter, claiming producers of the event refused to allow her to show her "creativity", despite her offering up "three different songs" that she could perform. The star stayed silent about those rumors, until she saw a new Associated Press interview with Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich. Yet, there's still a refreshing acknowledgement of less self-assured moments, and Grande refuses to ever paint these instances as weakness. Recently, she's attracted headlines over a Japanese tattoo mis-hap, as well as calling out the Grammy's for "lying" by saying she turned down a performance offer at this Monday's awards ceremony.
But Grande wrote on Twitter that she "can pull together a performance overnight and you know that, Ken".
She replied: "my goodness, i don't know how i'm just seeing this but hi and thank u. sending a hug. wanna come over sunday night? i'm having a thing.it's pretty lowkey".
The music video of Break Up with your girlfriend, I'm bored starts off with Ariana Grande spotting a couple in the bar starring Charles Melton and Ariel Yasmine. "She felt like she was not being appreciated or respected as an artist so she has chose to skip the Grammys altogether", a source close to the 25-year-old singer told HollywoodLife.More news: RBI Slashes Repo Rate by 25 Basis Points, Changes Stance to 'Neutral'

Ehrlich went on to explain that he worked with Grande's management team and didn't speak directly to her, but insists that he wasn't trying to exert control over her performance.
Ariana Grande's highly anticipated album, thank u, next, is finally here in full, and there's a lot to discuss, including NASA. Grande wasn't singing about how terrible her exes were or how they had screwed her over-quite the opposite, actually.
"It's about collaboration. It's about feeling supported", Grande tweeted. It's about art and honesty, not politics, not doing favours or playing games.
Thank U, Next was partly inspired by a number of traumatic incidents she has experienced in the last six months.
On paper, it's everything I dislike about modern pop music-cloying lyrics about exes accompanied by a grating, sing-song-y refrain, all wrapped up in the "nice girl with a bad side" package that every major pop star seems to be pushing these past few years.
