Ariana Grande pulls out of performing AND attending the Grammy's

Ariana Grande Reportedly Withdraws From Grammys After Disagreement Over Song Choices

It appears Ariana Grande is the latest star to decide to forgo this year's Grammy Awards, with the pop star reportedly declining to attend the ceremony after a disagreement with producers.

The entertainment website reported that the 25-year-old singer felt "insulted" when the show's producers refused to let her perform her newest single "7 Rings".

Despite the fact that they supposedly reached "a compromise whereby '7 Rings" would be part of a medley, ' the superstar still chose to skip the whole show after the 'producers insisted that the second song be of their choosing'.

Ariana Grande has reportedly pulled out of this year's Grammys. Things quickly fell apart all over again when organisers are said to have asked for full control over her second song choice. But what's more interesting is the insider insists she was the only performer given this ultimatum. The song is the second track from her new album "thank u, next" expected to be released February 8 before the awards show.

Variety says they instead, 'offered her a spot during the show's Tom Petty tribute'.

Representatives for the Recording Academy and Grande did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comment.
