Ariana Grande has been slammed for refusing to take a photo with a fan at the Grammy Awards.
The popular singer was up for five awards, which included Album of the Year for Thank U, Next, and it was the first time the 26-year-old earned a nomination in one of the Big Four categories.
However, in an unpredictable series of events, Ariana lost out on four of the gongs to newcomer Billie Eilish, who scooped more awards than anyone else on the night.
According to The Sun, one particular seat-filler felt the wrath of the talented songstress when he approached her for a quick snap.
Terry George – who looks after celebrities’ seats when they step away from the ceremony – claimed that Ariana acted like “a bit of diva” after shutting down his request for a photo.
After bagging a candid selfie with the ever-popular Billie following her incredible wins, Terry was rather taken aback with Ariana’s response when he asked for one with her.
Speaking to Insider, he explained what happened when he approached the former Nickelodeon star at the end of the night.
“She said, ‘Not right now, I’m not in the mood.’ And then obviously I realised thinking back in hindsight that she didn’t win anything, so she was pretty upset about it,” he recalled.
After hearing about Terry’s dilemma, die-hard fans of Ariana rushed to Twitter to defend the talented star.
“What do you expect? She’s just lost out on the biggest awards of her entire life. Why would she agree to get into a picture with some random dude?” wrote one unimpressed fan.
“So what? She’s entitled to say no. Leave her alone oh my god!” another fumed.
While a third quipped: “No offense to this man but I’m sure she would rather get into a picture with ANYONE else besides him considering the night she had. Bulls**t!”.
