Ariana Grande just dropped her fifth album "thank u, next" but she's still got time to gather her haters on Twitter. The "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored" singer dragged Grammys boss Ken Ehrlich following rumours she would no longer be performing or attending Sunday's event because of an argument over song choices.

Earlier this week, reports alleged Ariana was upset that she couldn't perform "7 Rings" at the Grammys. So, not only did she pull out of performing, but she also decided to ditch the event altogether.

Later, Ken gave an interview with The Associated Press where he claimed that although the Grammys eventually made peace with Ari over her songs, she couldn't pull something together in time.

He said: "As it turned out when we finally got the point where we thought maybe it would work, she felt it was too late for her to pull something together for sure. And it's too bad. She's a great artist. And I'd love to get her in the show this year."

Well, Ariana wasn't going to take that and immediately reposted said interview on Twitter alongside her explanation of what really went down.

She tweeted: "i’ve kept my mouth shut but now you’re lying about me. i can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken. it was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that i decided not to attend. i hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more.

"i offered 3 different songs. it’s about collaboration. it's about feeling supported. it’s about art and honesty. not politics. not doing favors or playing games. it’s just a game y’all.. and i’m sorry but that’s not what music is to me.

"hope that helps everyone understand my decision. i am still grateful for the acknowledgement this year."


She said what she said.
