Variety initially reported that Grande pulled out of the show after producers allegedly put restrictions on her song choices that they did not place on other performers.

Grande is nominated for two Grammy awards, Best Solo Performance ("god is a woman"), and Best Pop Vocal Album (sweetener).

She also shot back at an interview given by Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich.

After this ballad was released as an album teaser track in December, some Twitter sleuths suggested it was about Grande's late ex Mac Miller because he had "Imagine" tattooed on his arm. It was when my creative expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend. She previously mentioned him in the "Thank U, Next" video, singing "Thought I'd end up with Sean, but it wasn't a match", and left a secret note in her "burn book" saying Sean "can still get it".

Ariana Grande is setting the record straight about her disagreement with the Recording Academy. Her image had been used in Grammys advertising.

When I first learned a track would be named after the space agency, which Grande loves to follow on social media, I wondered if it'd quite literally be a jam about outer space or simply a cleverly titled song about space between people. Grande seemed to confirm that in her tweets on Thursday.

Ariana Grande, the multi-awarded pop superstar, finally breaks her silence as to why she is not performing at Grammy's awards show on Sunday.

"I know you hear me when I cry "I try to hold it in at night "When you're sleeping next to me "But it's your arms that I need this time". It's about art and honesty", Ariana said".

Thank U, Next was partly inspired by a number of traumatic incidents she has experienced in the last six months.

The chart-topping singer, who on Friday made history as her newest album took just five minutes to hit the top of the iTunes US chart, was touted to sing at the annual event. "I am still grateful for the acknowledgement this year", she tweeted. "It's just a game Y'all.and I'm sorry, but that's not what music is to me." added Grande as she talks about creative freedom.
