“Raise Your Glass” singer Pink was not impressed with the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and she made her distain known in a private Instagram post. “Cool For The Summer” singer Demi Lovato responded to Pink’s apparent diss, but the self-proclaimed aging pop singer isn’t backing down.
“You know, this is part of why I'm sad about the VMAs and the world in general. Everyone is so nasty and waiting for a fight. I never said anything about Demi Lovato or called out anyone. I was talking to a friend in response to his disappointment about the show. I agree w him,” the singer, whose real name is Alecia Moore, tweeted Friday.
“You can make this into whatever you like, cause that's who we are now, I guess. I'm out,” the 35-year-old wrote to her 27 million followers. “In other news, it's gonna be a beautiful day, I hope you look up from your keyboards and enjoy it.”
Lovato, 23, indirectly responded to Pink’s most recent rebuttal. “I'm learning so much every day by this new chapter in my life. I'm no longer the victim. I am the survivor,” the former Disney star told her 30.5 million followers. “What's wrong with being #Confident?”
The drama all erupted when Pink said she “felt sad because music is supposed to inspire. It saved my life. This trash won't save any kids life.”
While Lovato acknowledged “Cool For The Summer” isn’t that type of song, tunes like “Skyscraper” and “Warrior” certainty are. They “have done a pretty good job of helping people cope with mental illness,” she said. “VMA's are sexy and fun. There's a time and place for everything.”
