Ariana Grande just released her new album thank u, next, and she was supposed to perform at the Grammys on Sunday night. It comes at the flawless time for fans who won't get to see Grande perform at the Grammys on Sunday due to creative differences that she says she had with the producers.

The cute interaction came after the release of her latest album Thank U, Next, and an ongoing feud with Grammys organizers.

The pop princess's fifth album sees the star sharpen her brand of bubblegum pop with a biting personal edge. The 12-track record reportedly covers many emotional topics for the pop star, including her breakup with Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson and the death of her ex-boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller.

This feels linked to the single Thank U, Next, where Grande sings: "I met someone else / We havin" better discussions / I know they say I move on too fast / But this one gon' last / "Cause her name is Ari / and I'm so good with that". Grande wasn't singing about how terrible her exes were or how they had screwed her over-quite the opposite, actually.

Fans are calling out Ariana Grande on what they call queer baiting.

She wrote on Twitter: "Wildest applause to Ariana for standing up for herself and refusing to be intimidated by lies". She previously mentioned him in the "Thank U, Next" video, singing "Thought I'd end up with Sean, but it wasn't a match", and left a secret note in her "burn book" saying Sean "can still get it". "Thank u, next" was going to be yet another wad of chewed up bubblegum inadvertently stuck to the bottom of my shoe: sticky, annoying, and eventually forgotten. "It was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend".

She uses the modern phrase, "ghosting"-the act of suddenly cutting off communication with someone without warning-in regard to both the sudden loss of Miller and how he still haunts her".

"I offered 3 different songs", Grande's tweet continued.

The album also features a spoken intro from Grande's grandmother, Marjorie Grande (known to Grande and her fans as Nonna), who opens Bloodline with a feisty proclamation that makes Grande giggle: "Because I'm trying to do the best that I can, and they can't find something to satisfy me".

"He just comes to visit me/ When I'm dreaming every now and then".
