According to Variety, Ariana Grande will not be performing or attending the Grammy Awards this year. HITS reported that she made this decision after a friction with the Grammy producers over creative control. She wanted to perform her new No. 1 Billboard charter, “7 Rings,” and the creatives at the Grammys were looking for something different. Variety also noted that these creative restrictions were not imposed on the other performers.

The drama is similar to that of Lorde’s last year, where she wasn’t allowed her to perform a single from her Album of the Year-nominated Melodrama.

Grande’s new album, thank u, next, will be released Friday, Feb. 8, and the Grammys are taking place on Sunday, Feb. 10, adding to competitive fire. The pop icon is nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance (“God Is a Woman”) and Best Pop Vocal Album (Sweetener), missing spots in the Album of the Year and Record of the Year categories.

If Mac Miller secures the 2019 Grammy for “Best Rap Album” for Swimming, the award will be accepted by late rapper’s parents, who will attend the awards ceremony in Miller’s memory. The annual ceremony and the biggest night in music will return to Los Angeles’ Staples Center on February 10, where Alicia Keys will be playing host.

Miller’s fifth studio showing, Swimming, had been considered one of the rapper’s most visceral to date, exploring themes of mental health that stood out from older released. He passed not long after that, further amplifying the themes set in his record. The LP will compete with productions from four other hip hop entities, Cardi B‘s Invasion Of Privacy, Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap, Pusha T‘s Daytona, and Travis Scott‘s Astroworld.
