Ariana Grande pulls out of 2019 Grammy Awards

Ariana Grande will no longer be in attendance at the 2019 Grammys.

According to Variety, the singer has been left feeling "insulted" after organisers of the show wouldn't allow her to perform new single "7 Rings" despite other performers not having the same stipulations imposed against them.

A medley involving "7 Rings" seemed to be agreed upon until producers wanted to choose the second song, according to Variety.

NFL Insider Has Major Nick Foles Update
The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to use their franchise tag on Nick Foles this offseason with the intention to trade him. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says it's not a surprise the Birds are going to pick up the option, but it is an important step.

She was only nominated for two awards this year; Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener and Best Pop Solo Performance for "God Is A Woman".

The 26-year-old singer has made a decision to pull out of the awards show after she had a disagreement with the producers, a source tells Variety. To top it all off, Grande has chosen not to attend the gala as a front-row guest, notwithstanding her omission as a performer. She followed that with "Imagine" and "7 Rings", the latter of which broke Spotify's record for most plays within a 24-hour period.

CNN has reached out to the Recording Academy for comment.

Apple restores functionality to Google’s apps after a brief block
Just like Facebook, the app relied on Apple's enterprise program that allows distribution of internal apps within the company. She added that the Facebook research app at issue hadn't been a secret and had been operated only with its users' consent.

Along with Grande, it's been reported that Taylor Swift and Maroon 5 also won't be attending this year's Grammys.

Other artists set to perform include Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Miley Cyrus, Post Malone, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Shawn Mendes, Dua Lipa and Travis Scott, among others.

However, like Ariana, she turned it down. Both sides were thereby at an impasse in negotiations, to which the Grammy's counteroffered Lorde a spot in the Tom Petty tribute performance. Grande also likely wants to use the platform to promote her new album "Thank U, Next", featuring that track.
