P!nk vs. Demi Lovato: Pop stars' public feud gets dramatic
Pink and Demi Lovato are in a Twitter war over an MTV VMAs diss that has gotten out of hand, but they both have really good points.
It's pop star versus pop star in the latest celebrity Twitter feud, and this one is all over something as frivolous as the MTV Video Music Awards — and between two such unlikely foes as P!nk and Lovato.
On Sunday night, P!nk reportedly posted some critical comments about the artists and performances at the award show.
"I felt embarrassed and sad. And old. We're getting old," she wrote. "But in all seriousness; I felt sad because music is supposed to inspire. It saved my life. This trash won't save any kids 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. 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 aging pop star to believe."
Since the singer pointed out the performers she thought were good, some believed that meant she thought the other performers — like Lovato, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea, Twenty One Pilots and A$AP Rocky — all sucked. And that's where the problems began.
P!nk posted a so-called apology later, which some thought was a backhanded insult to Lovato.
When Lovato caught wind of the comments, she fired back, saying that she has done plenty to help others through her art and that sometimes being frivolous and fun is just fine.
But P!nk is refusing to back down from her opinion, and landed the last word — so far — in this battle of the pop divas.
