Ariana Grande has reportedly pulled out of performing at the 61st Grammy Awards ceremony due to a disagreement with Grammy producers over which songs she would perform. "It was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend".

With streaming providing the masses with "instant" access to the entire album at once, songs are aging at a far faster rate.

Depending on who you believe, Ariana Grande was having trouble coming up with a performance, or the Grammy's denied her artistic freedom; either way, she won't be performing on Sunday night.

The song, which samples 'N Sync's It Makes Me Ill, focuses on an infatuation with someone who is already in a relationship. It's about collaboration. It's about feeling supported. It's about art and honesty, not politics, not doing favours or playing games.

"I know you hear me when I cry "I try to hold it in at night "When you're sleeping next to me "But it's your arms that I need this time".

"As my kids would say 'they're all dinosaurs!'" Osbourne concluded in her rant against the Grammys team.

Philadelphia is expected to keep a close on what the future holds for the ex-Miami Heat member. After that lone season in New Jersey, he played three seasons for the Orlando Magic.

Ariana Grande's song "Thank U, Next" blew up the charts when it was released last November. "It's like I'm the universe and you be N-A-S-A", Grande sings. The annual awards show - affectionately dubbed the "Grammys" - hands out the biggest awards in the music industry for top performers, albums and tracks.

The 2019 Grammys will still feature scheduled performances from stars such as Cardi B, Dua Lipa and Camila Cabello, and will this year be hosted by R&B singer Alicia Keys.

The root of the problem appears to be over which song she would perform; she wanted to sing her new single "7 Rings", while organizers traditionally prefer artists perform the music they are nominated for.

Ariana Grande finally drops her album 'Thank U Next and fans are loosing it; spoiler alert, there are a lot of Pete Davidson and Mac Miller references. Fifteen-time Grammy victor Alicia Keys will be the first woman to host the ceremony in over a decade.
