Ariana Grande is gearing up to release her thank u, next album but don’t look forward to seeing the superstar perform any of the singles at the Grammy Awards this Sunday. Grande was scheduled to perform this Sunday (Feb. 10) but has pulled out after she was “insulted.”
According to Variety, the “7 Rings” creator was told by producers that she cannot sing the song on stage. She eventually would be able to get the Recording Academy to fold, however, they wanted to pick her second song and requested a medley to be performed. The decision to withdraw from the show was done after source reveal that she is the only artist who has to work around her song selection or as they put it “such stipulations.”
Since it’s release, “7 Rings” has been the center of a controversy. Right after Soulja Boy returned to the scene and caused a stir on The Breakfast Club, the single was released. Big Drako was quick to point out how the cadence and tone in which Grande performed was similar to his on “Pretty Boy Swag.” Once Grande released the video, she and dancers could be seen performing at what looked to be a pink trap house, much similar to the trademark of 2 Chainz. Rectifying the situation, or at least acknowledging Chainz’s genius, Grande would include him on a remix to the single, which was released last week.
Do you think Ariana Grande will return to Grammy performance line-up? Her new album will be available this Friday (Feb 8).
