Ariana Grande and the producer of the Grammy Awards, Ken Ehrlich, are embroiled in a thing like a beef suitable now.
Ariana was scheduled to perform at the 2019 Grammys, but on Tuesday (Feb. 5)—less than a 7 days ahead of the stay show—Range noted that she would neither be executing at nor attending Sunday’s (Feb. 10) ceremony owing to a “disagreement” with Grammy producers over what tunes she’d complete during her established.
An insider instructed Wide range that Grande felt “insulted” immediately after producers undermined her creativity by not letting her to perform her new single “7 Rings.”
The singer and Grammy producers finally attained a compromise wherever “7 Rings” would be section of a medley, but immediately after they insisted that the second music be of their deciding upon, Grande chose to not complete at all, and took it even more by declining their invitation to even go to, leaving the Grammys without one of their greatest stars.
Then, Ken Ehrlich’s outdated ass went and ran his mouth to the Connected Push about the scenario, declaring that Ariana backed out for the reason that she “felt it was much too late for her to pull one thing off,” which pissed Ariana off even a lot more due to the fact he wasn’t telling the reality, she claimed.
On Thursday (Feb. 7), Ariana tweeted a screenshot of Ehrlich’s interview and clapped back with this assertion: “I’ve retained my mouth shut but now you are lying about me. I can pull collectively a functionality above night time and you know that, Ken. It was when my creativeness & self expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend. I hope the clearly show is just what you want it to be and far more.”
She added: “I presented 3 distinctive music. It’s about collaboration. It’s about feeling supported. It’s about art and honesty. Not politics. Not accomplishing favors or participating in game titles. It’s just a sport [to] y’all.. and I’, sorry but that’s not what music is to me.”
We’re advised Ariana is enraged, because she actually continued to chat to the Grammys and made available to complete a tune Ehrlich needed, as very long as she could sing “7 Rings,” but he even now wouldn’t budge. She then mentioned sayonara and, days later, Ehrlich came again and reported fine, do a medley that contains “7 Rings” … but by then, Ariana was finished with him. In other terms, we’re explained to she feels like Ehrlich is lying mainly because he is aware he designed a error and is wanting for address.
As for why she thinks he manufactured a mistake … “thank u, next” the album drops Friday, and it’s predicted to be the very best-marketing album so far this year, and for Ariana not to appear on the Television display will glimpse absurd.
Now, Ken Ehrlich is out listed here playing dumb with Rolling Stone, tolmbout how “surprised” he was at Ariana’s response. BOY BYE!
“I noticed these tweets and what she said. I guess it was a shock,” he stated in an interview with the journal all through rehearsals this weekend. “I will say this, and they do not want me to say it but I’m heading to say it: The point that probably bothered me additional than whatever else she reported about me is when she stated I’m not collaborative.”
Ehrlich, who stated he didn’t get the job done with Grande immediately, but communicated with her administration staff, ongoing: “The fact of the matter is — and I essentially wrote a minimal thing in the middle of the night that I’m not going to do nearly anything about, but, I imply. You can inquire Christina Aguilera, who I requested to do ‘It’s a Man’s World’ for James Brown.
“You can question Melissa Etheridge, who concluded her most cancers remedy and I put her out on stage, bald, executing Janis Joplin. You can ask Ricky Martin who overnight turned the creator of the Latin music revolution. Inquire Mary J. Blige, who was scared shitless to go out there and do ‘No A lot more Drama.’ I basically labored with her to mildew it. Check with H.E.R. who’s in this show.
“I do not know if I’m good at nearly anything else, but I comprehend artists and I can hear other artists in an artist. I never say to individuals, ‘This is what you must do.’ I tactic it casually and say, hey, this may possibly be a very good concept, let’s locate some thing in the middle.”
Ms. Grande couldn’t be achieved for comment, but we’re practically specified this would be her reaction:
