EVEN though she is one of the nominated artists for an award at the popular Grammy Awards slated to hold in few days’ time, top pop artist, Ariana Grande, has revealed that she will not make it for the grand finale.
Her decision came after she felt disrespected by producers who didn’t give her a chance to perform her newly released single, 7 Rings.
A source told Variety that Ariana and the Grammy producers reached a compromise which would have seen her perform 7 Rings as part of a medley, but the 26-year-old opted against the performance when bosses told her the second song would be one they chose. Ariana is up for two gongs at the awards this Sunday – Best Pop Solo Performance for the song, ”God is a Woman ” and Best Pop Vocal Album for the album, ”Sweetener.”
However she is yet to comment on the report on her social media pages.
Meanwhile, another top star, Taylor Swift, who is also nominated in the Best Pop Vocal Album category, is also thought to be giving the Grammys a miss. While it’s not been confirmed, it’s thought that the singer may instead attend the BAFTA Awards in London, which are also taking place on Sunday night. Swift has been in London for the past few weeks shooting new movie, Cats.
Though we might miss the presence of this young stars. But one person who will be making an grand appearance at the Grammys is singer cum actress, Lady Gaga. She has opted to shun the BAFTAs, where she is nominated for Best Leading Actress for A Star is Born.
Gaga will be taking to the stage at the Grammys to perform her nominated song, Shallow, from the Bradley Cooper-directed movie.
