Ariana Grande Wins Grammy For 'Sweetener' Days After Dragging Awards Show

The "thank u, next" singer called the win "wild and beautiful."

If Ariana Grande wants it, she got it. 

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. 

Grande was set to take the stage at the ceremony, but pulled out of performing and attending altogether earlier this week when producers reportedly refused to allow her to showcase her new single “7 Rings.” 

She later accused Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich of “lying” about why she would be a no-show at the ceremony, explaining that she offered to perform three songs, but ultimately felt unsupported. 

While Grande did indeed skip the ceremony, she immediately reacted to the win on Twitter, writing that if things had turned out differently, she’d be walking the red carpet right about now. 

“This is wild and beautiful,” she wrote. “Thank you so much.”

The pop star has much to celebrate these days with the arrival of her newest album, “thank u, next,” which she dropped a mere six months after “Sweetener.” 

Her fifth studio LP has already broken records a day after its release, scoring the highest global debut for any female artist in every genre ever on Apple Music.
