(CNN)Ariana Grande has said thank you, next to the Grammy Awards.

It's hard to go anywhere these days without hearing about Ariana Grande. She followed that with "Imagine" and "7 Rings", the latter of which broke Spotify's record for most plays within a 24-hour period.

Despite Ariana Grande's face being plastered on billboards and buses all over Los Angeles to promote the Grammys, a report from Variety claimed on Feb. 5 that the pop star is neither attending nor performing at the award show this Sunday, Feb. 10. The 25-year-old actually began her time in entertainment as an actress on the Nickelodeon show Victorious, which she soon spun into a music career.

The same thing happened with Lorde at last years Grammys.

She's also sure to be hoping for success at the music awards - as she's up for five gongs.

According to a source who spoke with Hits Daily Double, the star apparently felt "insulted" after the Grammys production team disallowed her to sing her trap-inspired single "7 Rings" at the upcoming function.

Ahead of the show, Grande's performance was heavily advertised as one of the highlights of the ceremony, which is not known for high ratings. Officially released on August 17, the record sold an impressive 231,000 "equivalent sales units" in its first week, as reported by Nielsen Music (via Billboard), which represented a major jump from her third record, 2016's Dangerous Woman, which debuted at No. 2, selling just 175,000 units. The same source told Variety that Grande will no longer be attending Grammys at all.

She was only nominated for two awards this year; Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener and Best Pop Solo Performance for "God Is A Woman".
