Grammys Producer on Trent Reznor Rant: 'I'm Sorry He Was Upset'
Grammys executive producer Ken Ehrlich recently addressed Trent Reznor's "heartfelt f--k you" rant following the cutoff of ceremony's all-star jam featuring QOTSA, NIN, Dave Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham.

Although most media outlets have reported the story as a direct apology to Trent, this wasn't exactly the case. "I'm sorry he was upset," Ehrlich told the Hollywood Reporter. "I was really thrilled that we were finally getting him on the Grammys. The final jam started with Arcade Fire a few years ago, and LL Cool J last year.

"I want to end on a high, an up note," Ken added. "I did tell them we'd take it as long as we could. The number was about five, six minutes long, and we got to within a minute twenty of the end. We got as close as we could possibly get."

As reported, soon after the jam's credits cutoff, Reznor tweeted: "Music's biggest night ... to be disrespected. A heartfelt f--k you guys."
