Nicki Minaj has accused Grammys boss Ken Ehrlich of bullying her “into staying quiet for seven years”, simply days after Ariana Grande claimed he was “lying” about her no-show.
The producer irked the 7 Rings star final week (ends10Feb19) after they had a disagreement over a deliberate Grammys efficiency and the singer was so upset she pulled out of the present utterly.
And now it seems Ehrlich can count on a tongue lashing from Ariana’s Aspect to Aspect collaborator Nicki.
“I p**sed off the same man Ariana just called out for lying,” Minaj tweeted on Monday (11Feb19). “Grammy producer KEN. I was bullied into staying quiet for 7 years out of fear. But I’ll tell my fans the REAL on the next episode of #QueenRadio they deserve the truth. Also, CONGRATS to everyone who won last night.”
Ehrlich hit headlines after Ariana accused him of mendacity after he detailed her determination to not carry out or attend with the media.
“I’ve kept my mouth shut but now you’re lying about me…” Ariana tweeted. “It was when my creativity & self-expression was stifled by you that I made a decision to not attend. I hope the present is precisely what you need it to be and extra.
“it’s about collaboration. it’s about feeling supported. it’s about art and honesty. not politics. not doing favours or playing games. it’s just a game y’all… and i’m sorry but that’s not what music is to me.”
After Ariana’s accusations, Ehrlich informed U.S. TV present Further that he’s not holding a grudge in opposition to the singer.
“We had hoped she would be with us,” he mentioned. “We were in conversations and discussions for a while, we just never quite met, you know, in the same place. We will celebrate her nominations. We obviously wish her well, and we look forward to the day again when she’s part of the show.”
