Ariana Grande continued to blast the Grammys over their preference for politics over art, claiming the music artists passionately create is turned into a game. "I can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken".

Grande confirmed that she had entered discussions with the Recording Academy to perform at this year's ceremony, and that the two parties could not reach on a mutual agreement to proceed.

On Friday Grande disputed his comment, tweeting: "I've kept my mouth shut but now you're lying about me". It's about collaboration. It's about feeling supported. "But, boy, don't trip (Don't trip), you know this isn't real/You should know I'm temporary". "I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more".

Originally, Ariana Grande was set to perform at the ceremony, but ended up pulling out due to creative differences.

The Thank U, Next album was released this morning and fans clearly couldn't wait to listen to the full track list, boosting the album to the top of the charts.

A source told HL, "Ariana is excited, happy and determined to go on with her Coachella performance after her Grammys cancelation".
