Ariana Grande will be noticeably absent from this weekend's Grammy Awards.
Ariana Grande isn't attending the 2019 GRAMMYs, despite rumours. "And I'd love to get her in the show this year". Her hit single, "Thank U, Next" saw the artist mentioning her four best-known exes by name, most notably Saturday Night Live actor Pete Davidson, to whom she was briefly engaged, and Mac Miller, who tragically passed away in 2018 not long after their breakup.
Ariana Grande is reportedly pulling the plug on her performance due to a disagreement with the event's producers. The 25-year-old actually began her time in entertainment as an actress on the Nickelodeon show Victorious, which she soon spun into a music career.
Grammy producers faced a similar situation with Lorde before last year's ceremony, when they wouldn't let her perform a song from her album Melodrama, which was up for Album of the Year. Not only that, the singer is just five weeks before her "Sweetner" tour kicks off. Music festival Coachella that takes place around April, will also see Ariana headlining a gig and her fans have been quite upbeat about it, the report suggests.

Trump says that he accelerated the negotiations with the Taliban to reach a political settlement. He said he wanted to wait for the official word before making any announcement.
Complicating matters, the show had been promoting Grande as a performer on social media. 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.
Despite these creative obstacles, Ariana has made a decision to not let her fans bear the brunt of this.
A source told HL, "Ariana is excited, happy and determined to go on with her Coachella performance after her Grammys cancelation".
Grande, whose album "Thank U, Next" drops Friday, is nominated for best pop vocal performance and best pop vocal album.
