Ariana Grande

Los Angeles — Reigning pop queen Ariana Grande dropped her highly anticipated album overnight Friday after slamming the producer of the Grammys for "lying" about her decision not to perform at music's biggest night.

The chart topper released her fifth album "Thank U, Next" before lashing out at Ken Ehrlich after the Grammys boss told US media the woman of the moment "felt it was too late for her to pull something together."

"I've kept my mouth shut but now you're lying about me," tweeted Grande with a screenshot of an Associated Press article. "I can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken. it was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that i decided not to attend."

"I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more. — AFP
