The Met Gala 2016 was a night filled with stunning and extravagant outfits, but there may have been a few cat fights that happened behind-the-scenes as well — at least that’s the way Demi Lovato has made it seem thanks to her recent Instagram post.
The internet is currently wondering whether Lovato and Nicki Minaj are feuding, and it all started because of something so silly: Minaj took to Instagram to share a photo of herself, Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott, and Demi Lovato. However, she failed to tag Lovato in the image and simply captioned the post with “@itsjeremyscott @moschino.”
Seems fair enough. She didn’t throw any shade at Lovato with this image. She simply thanked the man responsible for both their outfits, which we think is perfectly acceptable. If she really didn’t want Lovato in the image, she could have cropped her out or chosen a completely different image, and, believe me, there are many she could have chosen from — but it was Lovato’s actions that created the unnecessary drama.
Taking to Instagram, Lovato posted a photo of her own, but in this one, Minaj looks to be giving her major side-eye. She captioned the image with, “This picture pretty much summed up my first and probably last met #cool #sof***ingawkward #notforme #sweatpants #forensicfiles #whatsgood” (you may remember that “what’s good” line from when Minaj called out Miley Cyrus on stage at the VMAs).
Lovato’s post created a rather unsurprising response, as multiple media publications began reporting that there was a possible feud brewing between the two women. Lovato then added on to her caption, writing, “p.s. some of y’all need to learn how to take a joke… I’m obviously laughing at the fact that 1. I look incredibly awkward and 2. That the shade being thrown in this picture actually gives me life.”
OK, so Lovato says she’s joking about the whole thing, and maybe she is, but she really appeared to be offended. She even posted a Snapchat with the caption, “when you aren’t mentioned in a post but didn’t do shit to the person…” — and there was absolutely no need to escalate the situation.
We love Lovato because she is so sincere and so willing to share her feelings, good and bad, with the world. But this is one time that people are not applauding her for her comments, as evident by the reaction to her post.
“Stop crying,” des.alexis wrote on Lovato’s picture.
“@ddlovato she always get upset so easily !!!pfff,” mar_stina wrote.
“There is no shade, get over yourself god damn,” sarahmcdu shared.
Biebersbodyheat also weighed in on the post, writing, “Demi needs to grow tf up.”
“She’s sucha crybaby. Omg,” _cassanovaa wrote.
And _dominniiicccc reminded Lovato that with so many positive things in her life, she really shouldn’t care, writing, “If I was in your shoes I wouldn’t care what shade is thrown my way.”
