Ariana Grande was saying “thank u, next” to all that Grammys drama ahead of Sunday’s awards show just as she earned her first Grammy for best pop vocal album (for “sweetener”).

She took the time to thank her label, fans and appreciate the moment despite the controversy around her Grammys performance that didn’t pan out.

“i know i’m not there tonight (trust, i tried and still truly wished it had worked out tbh) and i know i said i try not to put too much weight into these things … this is wild and beautiful. thank you so much,” she wrote.

The singer also retweeted a tweet from the Grammys account announcing her pop vocal album win, and shared the post on Instagram.

Earlier, fresh off her latest album release, Grande took to Instagram Sunday to talk about anything but the award show she chose not to attend. She hinted on Friday about her plans, quote-tweeting Bette Midler.

“wanna come over sunday night? i’m having a thing…. it’s pretty lowkey,” she wrote.

Sunday, Grande shared several Instagram posts basking in the success of her album and celebrating pal Doug Middlebrook’s birthday.

She also shared an old newspaper article that featured a story about her alongside an image of her as a child. The article was about her being hit by a hockey puck when she was 5.

“started from the bottom now we here,” she quipped.

She followed up with two posts featuring her younger self. One of the images features her botched Japanese tattoo, making light of the flub that made headlines last month.

On Twitter, she was busy promoting “thank u, next” and responding to fans (and her mom), as well as sharing the same childhood photos.

“if i’m honest ….. this is still exactly what i look like without lashes and my pony ….. anyone who knows me knows me knows ….. like …. i’m twenty five,” she wrote. “i was five here. the only difference now is that hand now says bbq grill finger.”

Grande called out Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich on Twitter Friday for saying she “felt it was too late for her to pull something together.”

She wrote: “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.”
