Ariana Grande Reveals How Pete Davidson Affected ''Thank U, Next''

Ariana Grande Reveals How Pete Davidson Affected ''Thank U, Next''

Reigning pop princess Ariana Grande took home the first Grammy of her career for Best Pop Vocal Album on Sunday for her fourth studio album "Sweetener", topping a tough field including perennial favorite Taylor Swift. Recent reports indicated Grande pulled out of the show after creative conflicts, and long-time producer of the show Ken Ehrlich told The Associated Press the reason was that the singer felt it was "too late to pull something together". Her split with Davidson was factored heavily into the mix and, for a time, she considered omitting any reference to the SNL comedian, she says because she wanted "to be protective". With public favor on her side, Ken Erlich reached out to Rolling Stone magazine for a chance at a rebuttal. "I guess it was a surprise", he said.

Ariana Grande's hit "Thank U, Next" was nearly a very different song. In the interview with the Zach Sang Show, released on Saturday, she said that Sean and Alvarez both loved the song, while also hinting she might not be in contact with Davidson anymore, as E!

Grande has been featured on billboards promoting the show, airing live on CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

He then went on to defend his resume, saying that he has worked with artists like Christina Aguilera, Melissa Etheridge, Ricky Martin and Mary J Blige on crafting unique performances, and that she could ask any of them about his collaborative skills.

"There's a version where I was getting married, there's a version where I'm not getting married, there's a version with nothing - we're not talking about anything", she continued.

"I don't know if I'm good at anything else, but I understand artists and I can hear other artists in an artist".
