Nicki Minaj claims she was “bullied into staying quiet” about being snubbed at the Grammy Awards.
The ‘Superbass’ rapper claims she has “p***ed off” Ken Ehrlich, the Grammys’ Executive Producer, and vowed to tell her fans the “real” story when she was next on her radio show, Queen Radio.
She wrote on Twitter: “I p***ed off the same man Ariana just called out for lying. 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. (sic)”
I pissed off the same man Ariana just called out for lying. 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. 🙏🏽 https://t.co/YjmoIOPt6o

It comes after Ariana called Ken out and claims she pulled out of performing at the Grammy Awards because her “creativity and self-expression was stifled” by the producers.
She wrote in a tweet: “mhmmm here it is ! ‘too late for her to pull something together……’ 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. i offered 3 different songs. it’s about collaboration. it’s about feeling supported. it’s about art and honesty. not politics. not doing favors or playing games. it’s just a game y’all.. and i’m sorry but that’s not what music is to me. (sic)”
Ariana was absent from the awards ceremony, where she won Best Pop Vocal Album for ‘Sweetener’.
