  • Published: 08 February 2019
  • Ariana Grande is upset with the head producer of the Grammys, Ken Ehrlich, for ruining her moment to perform at the Grammys. Ariana had an idea to perform a medley of 3 songs for her upcoming album Thank U, Next. The producer however did not want to give her any control on what to perform.

      Why do you even have her in this channel. She's not black no matter badly she wants to be.

            Love the brown jacket with the long, sparkly fringe. I don't care if the guys are old OR white. They should regulate things according to something OTHER than politics....unless a song is just explicit from one end to the other.

              I wish that she'd sung "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored", 'cause THAT'S a good song!

                      It seems to me that BLACK artists are becoming less and less valued in popular music or the music industry in general, like what the hell is going on?? I'm even surprised that an artist like H.E.R. was able to win a couple of Grammys recently being a Black R&B artist.....since R&B and hip hop is now growing ever paler and paler!

                        I kinda understand why they said no to 7 Rings, because 7 rings is more rap than pop, and the Category she got nominated for was 'Best pop album'. So that wouldn't match up. No hate to Ariana, other than that I get why she didn't preform.

                          I knew the Grammys was a joke when Talor swift won the grammy Beyonce was suppose to win. (I forgot what it was called) Talor Swift is trash. Also, where even is she now, when Beyonce busy on tours with her hubby

                            With each passing year the Grammies are losing their shine, i dont know how or why but the popular songs for example Mariah in her 90s prime years get overlooked. Until those old white men die the grammies will die otherwise.

                                      You said it Ole and diversity in the decision making in regards to music what-so-eveerrrrrrr. That's why the Motown (NoTown) tribute was a busted. The producers should have taken pointers from the Motown 25th Anniversary which was aired in 1983. Great tribute and they had a plethora of diverse artists paying tribute to the legends like Luther Vandross, Boy George, Linda Ronstadt, Patti LaBelle, and even Adam Ant. They should have called Suzanne de Passe & some of the Motown greats to weigh in on which contemporary artists that should've performed. Where's the integrity in this. That's why I stopped watching the popularity contests show (including all awards shows) decades ago. Same stuff different time. SMDH

                                              Ariana is very popular for pop music right now. They missed out. They should have maybe got Nicki to perform too. They are 2 entertaining artists

                                                    The Grammys is just a popularity contest. It's not about talent cuz if it was then Nicki Minaj would have countless Grammys. Just saying.

                                                                I already knew it was white men pulling the strings. They’ll choose Latino people over black people any day. I definitely knew they picked out Jlo for that reason to do the motown tribute and made Cardi, a Latina the first solo female rapper. I think they did this especially since it’s black history month perhaps to down play blacks and cause a lot of talk and uproar. Such a white mans show 🤦🏽‍♀️ I wouldn’t be surprised they’re low key racist. Good thing they’re up in age and look like they’re ready to kick the can soon. Maybe they’ll bring in some producers who are able to discern true artists and music aside from who’s popular at the moment.

She's a two face and she always have issues. Stating the BET awards only recognize whites, (it's what you sound like) its just another poor stereotype label; many blacks and other, have won awards before. If someone did not get one this year, it's cus they were not meant to get it.

Ariana pulled out to avoid getting setup and used like Nicki was. That's why Nicki and Ariana affirmed their friendship on Twitter and said they have each other's backs. The one who got setup was Cardi. They had her wear that Birth of Venus dress (remember Nicki wore that red nun's habit on the red carpet in 2012) then she did that stripper's set for Money. They told Travis he was getting that Rap Album award and everyone knew that, but only because they wanted Cardi to be genuinely surprised to channel the most emotion energy when she got it. Now Cardi is getting a backlash after the Grammys just like Nicki did in 2012.
