Ariana Grande No Longer Attending Grammys 2019 After Disagreement With Producers
Ariana Grande will no longer be in attendance at the 2019 Grammys this Sunday after a disagreement with producers.
The 26-year-old singer – who was set to attend and perform – felt "insulted" after producers refused to let her perform "7 Rings" during the show, an insider told Variety. The source went on to say that Ariana and the producers reached a compromise where "7 Rings" would be part of a medley, before Ariana pulled out after producers insisted that the second song would be one that they chose.
Ariana is nominated for two Grammys – Best Pop Solo Performance for her song "God is a Woman" and Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener.
Meanwhile, Ariana gave her "7 Rings" music video director, Hannah Lux Davis, a Tiffany’s diamond ring of her very own. The special moment was captured in a new behind-the-scenes video from the music video’s set.
Ariana presented Davis with the little blue box and Davis opened it in shock. "No it’s not," Davis said in disbelief. To which Ariana replied, "It’s 8 Rings now."
The inspiration for the song "7 Rings" came from a trip that Ariana and her friends took to the Tiffany store in New York City on a particularly rough day. Ariana ended up buying all her friends matching diamond rings.
