Ariana Grande Wins First Grammy After Boycotting Awards: ''F–k'' – E! NEWS
Ariana Grandehas won her first Grammy! However, you won’t see her accept it in person, for two reasons.
Hours before the 2019 Grammys on Sunday, the Recording Academy announced that the singer had won Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener. The group revealed several winners ahead of the show.
Grande was initially supposed to perform at the Grammys but pulled out days beforehand, saying she won’t even attend the ceremony due to a disagreement with Grammy producers over her set list.
“F–k,” Grande tweeted after learning of her Grammy win. “I know i’m not there tonight (trust, I tried and still truly wished it had worked out tbh) and I know I said I try not to put too much weight into these things …. but f–k ……. this is wild and beautiful. Thank you so much.”
“I love u @pharrell @scooterbraun @AllisonKaye every human being at @republicrecords @awsuki @ilya_music Max Martin @tbhits @victoriamonet @SocialHouseTC @recordingacademy & the voters,” she continued. “But mostly thank y’all for being my main source of joy and inspiration always. Call me @Pharrell.”
Sweetener is Grande’s fourth major studio record and contains songs such as “God Is a Woman” and “Pete Davidson,” written about the SNL star and her then-beau. The two called off an engagement and broke up last fall, following a whirlwind summer romance.
Grande beat Camila Cabello for Camila, Kelly Clarkson for Meaning of Life, Shawn Mendes for Shawn Mendes, Pinkfor Beautiful Trauma and Taylor Swift for Reputation.
Grande is also nominated this year for Best Pop Solo Performance for “God Is a Woman.” She was nominated for four Grammys in years past.
The 2019 Grammy Awards were held at Los Angeles’ Staples Center and aired live on CBS.
