Grammy Awards producer, Ken Ehrlich has issued a statement explaining why Ariana Grande canceled her performance for the event holding on February 10.
Ariana Grande announced she was no longer going to perform at the event because she felt insulted by the producers. According to her, they didn’t want her to perform the song she wanted to.
Reacting to her announcement, Ken Erhlich stated that she must have decided to cancel the performance because she felt it was too late for her to pull something different from what she had originally planned.
“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”, he said.
Ariana Grande has now reacted with a counter response to Ken Erhlich’s statement. The two-time Grammy Awards nominated songstress wrote on Twitter:
“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”.
