Ariana Grande Not Attending Grammys After Disagreements With Producers

Cape Town - Pop singer Ariana Grande will reportedly not perform at The Grammy Awards on Sunday in Los Angeles.

The decision comes after Ariana was snubbed in all of the major categories, receiving only nominations for best pop vocal performance for God Is a Woman and best pop vocal album for Sweetener.

The source says that Ariana felt "insulted" after producers refused to let her perform "7 Rings" during the show.

But there was yet another disagreement when the producers insisted that they would be able to choose the second song of the medley. Reps for the Grammys did not immediately respond to Variety's requests for comment.

Lady Gaga is expected to perform at the ceremony, where her hit song Shallow, from the film A Star Is Born, is up for record and song of the year, best pop duo / group performance with Mark Ronson and best song written for visual media.

Climate change could cause oceans to turn green by 2100, study warns
Previous research has shown that with warming, the oceans will see a reduction in phytoplankton in many places. The ocean's colors could change as the climate warms, though it won't be very noticeable to the naked eye.

Instead, they offered her a spot performing during the Tom Petty tribute, which she ultimately declined. Grande also likely wants to use the platform to promote her new album "Thank U, Next", featuring that track.

"Sweetener" and the songs "Thank U, Next" and "7 Rings" all smashed Spotify records, with "7 Rings" breaking the streaming service's record for most plays within a 24-hour period with almost 15 million.

The Thank U, Next song reached 100 million plays in just 11 days, setting yet another record for the Spotify streaming service.

According to Variety, the 25-year-old American singer won't be performing and may not even attend the event which takes place on Sunday, 10 February.
