Pink is the latest pop star to have a rant on social media and it’s over this years VMAs. The “So What” singer posted a private message on Instagram claiming that this years music awards made her feel “embarrassed and sad“. She said “I felt embarrassed and sad, and old. We’re getting old. But in all seriousness, I felt sad because music is supposed to inspire. It saved my life. This trash won’t save any kid’s life. In a world that is even scarier and with lives still worth saving, who will stand up and have soul? Disenfranchised to say the least“.
Pink continued, “Let down by my industry and peers, beside Macklemore and Pharrell and Bieber (pre-sob fest) and The Weeknd. Tori Kelly was dope too. The rest was gross and embarrassing and hard for this ageing popstar to believe“.
She then turned to Twitter to say “Please look for a feud elsewhere. I have no issue with Demi Lovato or anyone else. I actually forgot she performed. I have opinions. MANY. I stand by what I said. However, I didn’t intend for the angry people of the world to latch on and make it into something it isn’t. You know, this is why I’m sad about the VMAs and the world in general. Everyone is so nasty and waiting for a fight.”
Demi Lovato performed “Cool For The Summer” and replied on her own Twitter account, without tagging Pink directly in the messages, ” “Cool for the Summer” may not save kids lives or inspire but I’d say “Skyscraper” and “Warrior” have done a pretty good job of helping people cope with mental illness, VMAs are sexy and fun. There’s a time and place for everything“.
