Ariana Grande might have have had a case of FOMO – short for “Fear of Missing Out” – on Sunday as she took to social media while skipping the Grammys. 

The Boca Raton, Florida native, 25, did win her first Grammy on Sunday – but didn’t attend the show amid a feud with producers over what songs she would have performed and how she was being used – remaining engaged with the day’s events via more than a dozen posts reflecting her thoughts. 

She posted with four shots of herself lounging in her custom silver gown by designer Zac Posen she would have worn to the show, sending her gratitude to the famed designer for his creative contribution: ‘when @zacposen makes u a custom gown it doesn’t matter if you’re singing or not …. thank u.’ 

Celebration: Ariana Grande, 25, took to social media with snaps of herself in the gown she would have worn as she won her first Grammy on Sunday, but was not there to collect it amid a feud with the show’s producers over song selection

Ariana Grande may have skipped on this years Grammy's but that didn't stop the hitmaker from celebrating on social media alongside her nominees.

The 7 Rings songbird wore this custom made Zac Posen silk-faille ball gown with a diamond necklace and matching earrings from Butani Jewellery.

We love the powder blue hue of this gown and when paired with her dramatically long ponytail (her signature!) it lends to a cinderella-esque moment.

Snug: The singer posted four shots of herself in the luxe garment to Instagram 

In the shots, Ariana had her hair styled into her trademark ponytail with a diamond choker and matching earrings. 

Grande earlier Sunday was awarded the Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener, prevailing against a talented field of competitors that included Taylor Swift (Reputation), Camila Cabello (Camila), Kelly Clarkson (Meaning Of Life), Shawn Mendes (Shawn Mendes) and P!nk (Beautiful Trauma).

The Recording Academy collected the award on behalf of the Dangerous Woman beauty, who took to social media with a number of posts commemorating the historic win.

She expressed both joy and regret about the way the evening’s events were unfolding. The pop culture princess shared a childhood shot of herself on Instagram with a Grammy photo-shopped in her hand. 

Keep smiling: Grande seemed to be in good spirits amid both her win and the creative stand she took in skipping the annual ceremony 

Making a statement:  Grande was active on social media Sunday throughout the ongoing events 

Grande also tweeted about her absence at the show, which came amid a disagreement with producers who did not initially want her to sing 7 Rings as part of a set at the show, and wanted to dictate what other songs she would perform, Variety reported.

Grande and her reps were also upset that her image was aggressively used to advertise the award show, despite never having actually committed to the occasion, the outlet reported.

We have a winner! The Grammys confirmed Ariana’s win via Twitter on Sunday 

Too cute! A fan photo-shopped the 20-year-old photo of Ariana to reflect her newfound status as a Grammy-winner 

Opening up: The songstress was vocal on Twitter Sunday as she passed on attending the ceremony 

Top of the game: Grande was snapped last year in concert in LA 

Following the announcement she had won, Grande wrote: ‘F*** … 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 …. but f*** ……. this is wild and beautiful. thank you so much.’

Grande was one-for-two on the night, as she did not take home the Pop Solo Performance honors she was nominated for, with Lady Gaga’s Joanne capturing the honors. 

Happy: The musical artist had kind words for her colleague Pharrell 

Grateful: Grande had kind words for a number of her peers on the emotional day

Focused: The fast-rising artist also posted this portrait of herself to Instagram 

Throwback: Ariana mused on her younger self in a turn-back-the-clock shot 

Stating her case: Grande explained her row with Grammys producers earlier this week 

Ken Ehrlich, the executive producer of the annual ceremony, said that regardless of the circumstances, he was focused on making music’s biggest night a memorable one.

‘I’ve always believed at the end of the day, on Sunday night between 8 and 11:30, if we deliver, the rest goes away,’ he told Variety Saturday. ‘All I can do is put good stuff up there. I’m able to put all the other mishegas out of my mind.’

Grande has been one of music’s brightest-shining stars in recent years, with intense scrutiny on both her work and personal life, as her whirlwind relationship with Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson was among the biggest celebrity stories of 2018. 

Grande was involved in a controversy as the evening continued when her late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller was not named as the winner in the Best Rap Album category, tweeting out phrases such as ‘literal bull****,’ ‘trash’ and ‘f***’ out of frustration. 

Snub: Grande was angered when her late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller was not named as the winner in the Best Rap Album category, in what was his only nomination of the evening 

Tweet and delete: Grande posted a series of tweets and subsequently deleted them, making clear that she was upset at the Academy officials for inviting Mac Miller’s parents to the occasion without a banner moment to celebrate the late Pittsburgh native

The posthumous nomination was the only one for Miller, who died at the age of 26 in September as result of a fatal overdose from alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl.

Grande posted a series of tweets and subsequently deleted them, making clear that she was upset at the Academy officials for inviting Miller’s parents to the occasion without a banner moment to celebrate the late Pittsburgh native.

‘They invited Mac’s parents out for basically no reason,’ Ariana wrote.

She clarified that her hostility was not directed at the winner in the Best Rap Album category – Cardi B – saying in a (since-deleted) tweet that it had ‘nothing to do w her.

Ariana said of Cardi B: ‘good for her. i promise. i’m sorry. she’s not at all and that’s not what i mean and u know that.’

Miller was acknowledged and remembered during the show’s In Memoriam segment later in the evening.
