Ariana Grande to ‘boycott’ Grammy Awards night

Some of the biggest news surrounding the 61st Grammy Awards are the artists who aren't performing, including Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino and Ariana Grande.

The chart-topper released her fifth album Thank U, Next before lashing out at producer Ken Ehrlich after he told United States media the 25-year-old Ariana Grande "felt it was too late for her to pull something together".

Who says a custom made Zac Posen dress is too fancy for a Sunday night at home? Nevertheless, Grande has a pretty good shot at winning Grammys in the two categories for which she's been nominated.

Please perform next year, Ari.

The star also won best female rock vocal performance for "Trouble" in 2003, and earned her inaugural Grammy in 2001 for "Lady Marmalade" with Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim and Mya. Grande was not in attendance at the pre-telecast ceremony, but she wrote on Twitter that her win was "wild and handsome".

She also tweeted "f**k" right before her "trash" comment and followed with a third tweet saying "literal bulls**t".

She added: "I know I'm not there tonight".

The most puzzling tidbit of information to come out of this disagreement concerns the fact Ariana Grande and Ken Erlich never even met in person. I basically worked with her to mold it. Grande responded, "I've kept my mouth shut but now you're lying about me".

"I offered three different songs". She thanked record execs and collaborators by name, then shouted out her daughter while explaining the challenge of completing the album while pregnant. She would go on to share a few more tweets about how things actually went down - something Ehrlich said he was not expecting. Cardi said, after thanking her family and team members.
