Ariana Grande's 'NASA' Song Launch Has the Space Agency Over the Moon

  • Buzz Aldrin fangirls over Ariana Grande

After a disagreement with the Grammys producers over what song she was going to perform, Grande pulled out of the show entirely.

Grande said on the show that she had recorded another version of the song, which ended up being the first No. 1 on the Billboard charts of her career, without the names before deciding to release the other version.

Grande quickly elaborated, saying that she "wished it had worked" for her to be in attendance, adding that she tries "not to put too much weight into these things", though she was clearly disappointed to not be there in person. It was her weekend anyway, as her fifth album, Thank U, Next, dropped and dominated large swaths of social discourse. "It's like I'm the universe and you be N-A-S-A", Grande sings. I can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken.... Ken said Grande's response was "a surprise".

Ariana then tweeted, "nothing to do w [Cardi]. good for her. i promise. i'm sorry". I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more'.


The core of the dispute appears to be all over song choice.

His reasoning is that the Grammys platform might unfairly give "7 Rings" a better shot at winning next year when it becomes eligible, so the Academy prefers artists stick to the music for which they received their nominations this year. Camila Cabello for Camila, Kelly Clarkson for Meaning of Life, Shawn Mendes for Shawn Mendes, Pink for Beautiful Trauma and Taylor Swift for Reputation got beaten by Grande in this category.

This is the singer's first ever Grammy Award win.

The pop star picked up the Best Pop Vocal Album Grammy Award on Sunday night for her fourth studio album, "Sweetener", days after a reported clash with producers over a scrapped performance.
