In a series of tweets, pop queen Ariana Grande has responded to claims that the reason she is not performing at this year's annual Grammy Awards is because she "felt it was too late for her to pull something together." 

"I've kept my mouth shut but now you’re lying about me. I can pull together a performance overnight and you know that, Ken," the "thank u, next" singer tweeted, calling out Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich by name after he was quoted in an article by the Associated Press that ran earlier today. "It was when my creativity and self-expression was stifled by you that I decided not to attend. I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more."

"I offered 3 different songs. It’s about collaboration. It’s about feeling supported. It’s about art and honesty. Not politics," Grande continued. "Not doing favors or playing games. It’s just a game y’all. And i’m sorry but that’s not what music is to me."

Ariana, who is nominated for two Grammys this year, was originally slated to perform at Sunday's ceremony honoring the best of music from the past year, but pulled out after "disagreements with producers," Variety reports.
