When I first learned a track would be named after the space agency, which Grande loves to follow on social media, I wondered if it'd quite literally be a jam about outer space or simply a cleverly titled song about space between people.
Grande's smash hit thank u, next - the lead single off her just-released album - came out after this year's nomination deadline.
Best new artist Alessia Cara was the only woman to receive her own award during the telecast, and Lorde, the sole woman to earn an album of the year nomination, was not invited to perform her own music.
Ehrlich went on to explain that he worked with Grande's management team and didn't speak directly to her, but insists that he wasn't trying to exert control over her performance. The couple invites Grande to hang out with them and Grande, annoyed with their relationship, tries to get in between them. "In My Head" is one of them, but fans can't work out if it's about Pete or Mac.
But it hasn't taken long for fans to do a deep dive into Grande's lyrics. "And I'd love to get her in the show this year".
Grande, who will headline the Coachella music festival in April, will embark on a world tour in May, arriving in the United Kingdom in August.
She responded that she can do so overnight, but that she felt "stifled" by Ehrlich's direction.
Here's everything you need to know about Thank U, Next.
Other fans think Grande could be experimenting with women, or may be bisexual. It would fall into line with themes which recur throughout the album, like in "NASA" and the self-love line on "Thank U, Next".
We hope Ari's doing OK, but most of all, we hope she keeps dropping albums.
Beyond increasing Grande's overall brand footprint, the new promotional strategy also accounts for the impact of the streaming age. "I'm so proud of you for standing up to those antiquated old farts who produce the #Grammy Awards telecast and run the Recording Academy".
