Ariana Grande is standing her ground. Insiders close to the singer are reporting that she has become frustrated with Grammy producers who told her she could not perform “7 Rings” as part of her medley. Grande has had an incredible year and received two Grammy nominations, but for some reason, the producers behind the biggest night in music wanted a little too much control over their performing artists.
“7 Rings” is the latest single from Grande, and even set a record on Spotify for the most streams in a 24-hour period. She is following up on the success of her album “Sweetener” and her name was a big draw for this year’s Grammys.
This could spell trouble for the Grammys and their viewership. Grande’s performance has been advertised in multiple places and producers were relying on her appearance to bring in more viewers, especially since numbers have declined steadily in recent years.
Now, it’s reported that Grande won’t show up to the award show at all, and it’s likely that her loyal fans will boycott the awards in solidarity. The list of other performers so far remains the same, which includes Cardi B, Janelle Monáe, Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, Kacey Musgraves, Dolly Parton, and Diana Ross.
