The Real Reason Ariana Grande Recorded Different Versions of 'Thank U, Next'

Ariana Grande and Mac Miller

But she was passed over in the top Grammy categories of Album, Record and Song of the Year - though her smash hit "Thank U, Next", the title song off her new album, dropped after this year's nomination deadline.

The song was released in November, a month after she and Pete ended their engagement following a whirlwind summer romance.

Making matters even more tense, Grande's image is being used in billboards and advertising for the Grammy Awards which, according to sources, has angered the singer's team who feel she is being used to promote the show with no commitment to actually participate. "I saw those tweets and what she said".

"Ricky loved it", she continued. "Thank you so much".

Though Big Sean and Alvarez were fans, Davidson hasn't quite embraced the shoutout in the tune following their split. You can ask Melissa Etheridge, who finished her cancer treatment and I put her out on stage, bald, doing Janis Joplin.

The exact nature of the dispute is still not clear, but Variety reports that Grande wanted to perform her latest single "7 Rings", which the Recording Academy rejected.

"Everyone that I am still in touch with has been very supportive of it", Grande said. "But we all knew that the first version was gonna be the version we ultimately went with".

Ariana did not respond to the latest comments made by Ehrlich but when it was announced that Sweetener won the running for Best Pop Vocal Album - Ari was feeling bittersweet. "I understand that to a lot of people, I'm not a real person, or it's easy to just kind of like see me as like, a song or a picture or like a thing that kind of exists in their head and they know what they know and that's it".
