Nicki Minaj is speaking out against Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich just days after Ariana Grande called him out for statements regarding her not performing at this year’s Grammy Awards.“I pissed off the same man Ariana just called out for lying. Grammy producer KEN,” Minaj wrote on Twitter. “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.”The statement was in response to a fan who tweeted her confusion over why Minaj had never won a Grammy before: “Nicki Minaj has been at the top of her game for way too long to not have had a Grammy,” she wrote. “I don’t know what white man from the boards she pissed off.”

Variety has reached out to Ehrlich for comment.

Prior to the Grammys, Grande also expressed her frustration with Ehrlich after he told the Associated Press that she would not be performing at the ceremony due to her inability to put together a performance in time for the show. Variety previously reported that Grande wasn’t performing at or even attending the ceremony due to a disagreement with producers over which songs would be featured.

“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,” she tweeted. “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,” she continued. “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.”
