Ariana Grande reportedly pulls out of Grammys ceremony over performance disagreement

Ariana Grande reportedly pulls out of Grammys ceremony over performance disagreement

The 61st Annual Grammy Awards are broadcasting live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT on CBS. While it's not been confirmed, it's thought that the singer may instead attend the BAFTA Awards in London, which are also taking place on Sunday night, to support her boyfriend, The Favourite star Joe Alwyn. She is looking forward to seeing all her fans and delivering an unforgettable performance.

And because their demands for Ari's performance at this year's ceremony were so, erm, Grande, she has pulled the, erm, Grande move of backing out of the show. Kendrick Lamar and Drake are the top Grammy contenders, earning eight and seven nominations respectively while Brandi Carlile is up for six awards. "And I'd love to get her in the show this year". The initial discrepancy between Grande and producers was over her latest single "7 Rings". Dolly Parton will also take the stage to perform music from the Dumplin' soundtrack, and Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town, Maren Morris and Katy Perry will pay tribute to Parton by performing some of her iconic songs. Grande is very open about sharing her life on social media, and that includes her relationships.

Moral of the story: let the woman do what she wants.

LA Clippers trade Tobias Harris to loaded Sixers
In fact, it's not hard to argue that they won this trade, thanks to the savvy of Jerry West and the rest of LA's front office. With Harris set become a free agent at season's end, the Clippers faced the prospect of getting nothing in return for him.

He said that the summit will also bring a positive image of Vietnam "being a country of peace and Vietnamese people welcome it". Its one-party state model is still in place, but that doesn't stop it from doing business with the rest of the world.

Kristaps Porzingis: Everybody has welcomed me with open arms
It was never completely clear what the plan for Porzingis was in NY . "Every relationship takes time to build", Porzingis said. The move lends credibility to some rumors that have been floating around for months - the Knicks are all-in on free agency.

According to a source who spoke with Hits Daily Double, the star apparently felt "insulted" after the Grammys production team disallowed her to sing her trap-inspired single "7 Rings" at the upcoming function.

The whole thing is quite shocking since Grande is actually on the nominee list in two categories - Best Vocal Performance for God is a Woman and Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener.
