'It was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend. She is looking forward to seeing all her fans and delivering an unforgettable performance.

'I offered 3 different songs.

The last-minute withdrawal has come so late that billboards are still up around Los Angeles advertising her attendance.

Ariana Grande has reportedly pulled out of the Grammys after having a disagreement with producers over which song to perform. A source close to the situation told Variety that the pop star felt "insulted" when they refused to let her perform her hit single "7 Rings".

Grande is far from a new face on the scene, but this past year has been an especially prominent one for her.

She's been nominated for Best Pop Vocal Performance for God Is A Woman and Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener.

With album Thank U, Next set to drop just two days after the show, a performance in front of millions could have been a nice way to advertise her new music.

Scheduled performers during the Grammys include Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Brandi Carlile, H.E.R., Dan + Shay, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Post Malone, Shawn Mendes and Janelle Monáe.
