She did so through a string of tweets that revealed that she felt creatively "stifled" and offered up three songs to perform — but no dice. Despite the drama, Grande won best pop vocal album for Sweetener, and she still got to wear the custom ice-blue Zac Posen ballgown she'd planned for the red carpet.
