Singer Ariana Grande out having fun with friends after pulling out of the 2019 Grammy Awards over artistic differences with Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich.

She looked stunning in a little black dress, black thigh-high boots, a thin choker, and her signature ponytail.

The thank u, next singer looked carefree as she exited Nobu in Malibu with a couple of guys after clapping back at producer Ken Ehrlich, who alleged that Grande pulled out because she couldn’t pull the show together in a short amount of time.

Grande immediately released her own statement via Twitter denying such allegation – ‘i’ve kept my mouth shut but now you’re lying about me. 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.’

The pop goddess did not seem to let the negative talk get her down, she was all smiles as she left restaurant arm-in-arm with her friends.

Ariana has a lot to smile about, her album ‘thank you, next‘ is climbing the charts following the release of her hot music video for the single, Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Boredfeaturing Riverdale‘s own Charles Melton.
