Ariana Grande accuses Grammy producers of 'stifling' creativity

Sources had earlier told Variety that Grande felt "insulted" after producers refused to let her perform her song "7 Rings" at the award ceremony. Especially after the pains Ariana Grande went through in her personal life, with the split from Pete Davidson and ex-boyfriend Mac Miller dying; everyone was glad to see that singer found a way to heal.

Ariana Grande dropped her latest album Thank U, Next which includes a track that seems to pay tribute to the late Mac Miller.

"I've kept my mouth shut by now you're lying about me". It was when my creativity and self expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend.

Kaufman also noted that the lyric, "Keep me in your orbit and you know you'll drag me under", shows a pretty valid understanding of how "large solar system bodies pull lower mass objects into them". She previously mentioned him in the "Thank U, Next" video, singing "Thought I'd end up with Sean, but it wasn't a match", and left a secret note in her "burn book" saying Sean "can still get it".

" I was having dinner with my good friend Frankie Grande-he and I have been friends for a long time-and Ariana texted", Shangela said.

In September a year ago, Ariana was left heartbroken by the loss of her former love, when it was announced that Mac had died at the age of 26, just months after their split.

"I feel relieved n overwhelmed n grateful. thank u for everything", she responded.

When asked on Twitter if she'd be performing the song anytime soon she admitted the song is now not on the set list for her upcoming tour as she now can't make it through the song without crying.

CNN has reached out to the Recording Academy for comment. "It's about collaboration. It's about feeling supported".

"I offered 3 different songs", Grande's tweet continued.
