Grammys producer was "surprised" Ariana Grande slammed him on Twitter
“I saw those tweets and what she said. I guess it was a surprise,” Ken Ehrlich told Rolling Stone Saturday amid Grammys rehearsals. “I will say this, and they don’t want me to say it but I’m going to say it: The thing that probably bothered me more than whatever else she said about me is when she said I’m not collaborative." Ehrlich, who said that he never spoke to Grande personally, added: "The fact of the matter is — and I actually wrote a little thing in the middle of the night that I’m not going to do anything about, but, I mean. You can ask Christina Aguilera, who I asked to do ‘It’s a Man’s World’ for James Brown. You can ask Melissa Etheridge, who finished her cancer treatment and I put her out on stage, bald, doing Janis Joplin. You can ask Ricky Martin who overnight became the creator of the Latin music revolution. Ask Mary J. Blige, who was scared shitless to go out there and do ‘No More Drama.’ I basically worked with her to mold it. Ask H.E.R. who’s in this show.” ALSO: Why does the Grammys keep treating hip-hop like it "still sits at the pop culture kids’ table"?
