Ariana Grande has responded to Grammys producers claims that she refused to perform at Grammys Awards as she couldn't put together a performance at short notice.

Grammys Award has just lost one of the biggest pop stars. Although this year’s edition of Grammys has featured pop star Ariana Grande conspicuously in their billboard promotion, the 25-year-old star won’t be gracing the ceremony.

Some rumours had been making the rounds that Ariana Grande would not perform at the Grammys Awards even though her new album Thank you, next will come out 2 days before this ceremony. The singer remained silent about these rumours until she saw an interview with Ken Ehrlich, the Grammys producer. In this interview, Ken Ehrlich explained why Ariana Grande did not appear at the ceremony. He said, “She felt it was too late for her to pull something together for sure.”

The singer rejected to take it lying down and said, “I have kept my mouth shut, but now you are lying about me. I can pull together a performance overnight and you know that Ken, it was when my creativity and self-expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend. I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more.”

Earlier, Variety reported that Ken Ehrlich refused Ariana’s request to perform her newest single named 7 Rings and asked her to perform one song chosen by them. The singer mentioned that she offered 3 different songs and ended up getting tired of the politics involved. In another tweet, she wrote, "Hope that helps everyone understand my decision. I am still grateful for the acknowledgement this year". Spokespersons for the annual music award didn’t have any comment for this.

Ariana Grande is nominated for 2 awards this year including Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener and Best Pop Solo Performance for God Is a Woman, but her recent music has broken many records as well as dominated the pop culture. Thank you, next is released this Friday, only 6 months after Sweetener.

The 61st Grammys Awards will take place on 10th February at the Staples Center at 5p.m. Performers include Dolly Parton, Cardi B, Lady Gaga, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Travis Scott, J Balvin, Diana Ross, Camila Cabello, Dan + Shay, Brandi Carlile, H.E.R., Dua Lipa, Chloe x Halle, Post Malone, and Little Big Town.
