In a series of tweets, the singer explained her decision.

The "Thank U, Next" singer is nominated for two Grammys and was tapped to perform Sunday, but a report this week claimed she backed out after a disagreement with producers and will no longer attend the show.

Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich told the Associated Press Thursday that the Recording Academy wanted her to perform after having "conversations over the past month or so".

Ariana Grande has accused the organisers behind the Grammy Awards of "lying" and "playing games". Recently, she's attracted headlines over a Japanese tattoo mis-hap, as well as calling out the Grammy's for "lying" by saying she turned down a performance offer at this Monday's awards ceremony.

Ariana Grande has finally released her new album Thank U, Next. It was when my creative expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend.

It's widely speculated to be about Pete Davidson, who she started seeing and got engaged to shortly after her breakup with Mac Miller previous year. "I don't say to people, 'This is what you should do.' I approach it casually and say, hey, this might be a good idea, let's find something in the middle", he said, adding that he never corresponded with Grande directly, only her people.

Mavericks trade F Barnes to Kings

Ariana Grande has worn her heart on her sleeve ever since she made her way on to the pop scene.

Ariana Grande dropped her fifth studio album today, and it is a banger.

Another reading of Grande's message in "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" runs a bit deeper. On this dreamy ballad, Grande alludes to the pain of Miller's death possibly contributing to her breakup with Davidson: "I know that it breaks your heart/When I cry again over him/I know that it breaks your heart/When I cry again instead of ghostin' him".

Camila Cabello will open the show with fellow Latino stars Ricky Martin and J Balvin and there will also be performances from Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Yolanda Adams, and Little Big Town, among others. In fact, she shared the wonderful message of healing to her followers through the song thank u, next.

ET Canada has reached out to Grande's rep and a Grammys spokesperson for comment.

"It's about collaboration. It's about feeling supported", Grande tweeted.
