Ariana Grande finally gets her Grammy (five months late!) from manager Scooter Braun
You like her Grammy? Gee thanks, she just got it.
Five months after the Grammy Awards, Ariana Grande, who skipped out on the ceremony, took to Instagram Tuesday to show off her new trophy.
“really glad i checked the mail,” she wrote.
Grande won Best Pop Vocal Album for her 2018 record “Sweetener” back in February, but passed on attending the awards ceremony after clashing with Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich.
Pushing back against Ehrlich’s claim that the singer “felt it was too late for her to pull something together” for the show, Grande tweeted the producer had kept her from performing the songs she wanted to sing.
“i offered 3 different songs,” she tweeted in February. “it’s about collaboration. it’s about feeling supported. it’s about art and honesty. not politics… it was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that i decided not to attend.”
Although Grande joked she received the award via snail mail, the 26-year-old’s manager Scooter Braun wrote on Instagram he delivered it himself, posting a photo with Grande and the trophy.
“This right here is family,” he wrote. “I couldn’t have been prouder this week to deliver this one her very first Grammy.”

Braun was thrust into the spotlight last month for his feud with Taylor Swift. The beef began when Swift accused Braun of “incessant, manipulative bullying” after he acquired her former record label Big Machine Label Group. Because of the $300 million purchase, Braun now owns the masters of Swift’s hits.
But Braun stayed focused on Grande Tuesday. “There is no one more deserving and this is truly the first chapter of her epic story,” he wrote. “She is an icon living and is exactly who she claims to be. Yes she is now and forever more Grammy award winner @arianagrande but to me she is simply Ari… one of the strongest people I know with a heart of gold. Proud of you Ari!! Love yah.”
