Demi Lovato Responds to Pink's VMAs Comments

Demi Lovato has taken to Twitter to defend herself against comments made by Pink that seemed to be directed at her VMAs performance.

In remarks that Pink allegedly wrote on her private Instagram account, she said she “felt sad because music is supposed to inspire. It saved my life. This trash won’t save any kids life.”

“Cool For The Summer may not “save kid’s lives” or “inspire” but I’d say Skyscraper & Warrior have done a pretty good job of helping people cope with mental illness. VMA’s are sexy and fun. There’s a time and place for everything,” Demi tweeted.

Demi also retweeted a bunch of her fans who said that her songs, including “Cool for the Summer” have inspired them for the better.

    So annoying the vanity of young entertainers these days. She did not single her out so really I don’t see the point of responding. And even if she did, who cares! I do agree with Pink though.

    I am a huge Pink fan and I’m also a fan of Demi’s.. but Demi really does make a great point.And she has put out tons of inspirational music in the past and is a massive advocate for self love and acceptance. I know Pink was not targeting Demi specifically,and I get what Pink was trying to say. But I dont think the VMA’s should be taken so seriously. If Pink’s comment was made about the Grammy’s I’d understand more. But the VMA’s have been pretty raunchy and classless for years. I dont think that they were ever meant to make a positive impact on peoples lives other than to simply entertain them.

    What a really bitchy thing for Pink to say. I am so sick and tired for so called artists to think every song, movie tv show etc.. has to have some social message. These are forms of entertainment. Making someone happy and feeling good is just as important as performing a song that supports a belief the artist who wrote it has.If Pink really wants to help people with serious issues maybe she should stop singing about them and go out actually work with them one on one.Until them maybe she should listen to her own music and stop judging people expect them to conform to her standards. What a hypocrite.

  • lmao

    It’s a shame she couldn’t be more confidant on that Photoshopped album cover tho. #ThickThighs

    She probably got that look from your mother. If someone is to be blamed for the thick thighs look it should be her 😇

    Im supporting Pink for the full 100 percent on thisone, its so easy to be a celeb these day.
    EVEN MEXICANS CAN DO IT, believe that!!

  • Will

    Demi wants to be a trampy but never get called on it, only your fellow tramps buy it, moron.

  • Marie

    Pink is absolutely right!

  • Sweet Cheeks

    It’s a shame, because Demi can actually sing at times. Her performance was cringe-worthy, slithering around in that blow up pool. It’s no longer about the music and that’s not sexy or fun. Miley acting like a fool promoting drug use to kids. Kayne acting like an arrogant SOB….Michael Jackson Vanguard Award. Really? Taylor kissing up to Nicki and Kayne. It’s a joke, these acts can’t even sing without auto-tune. At least Pink can sing live.

  • Esoteric11

    What the wrong with Pink? When did she become the expert. I like some of her songs but they all sound the same to me

    i’m coming up so you better get this party started saved so many lives!

  • Kee FRIEND Leichtle

    I think Pink is partly right but I think Demi is right as well. A lot of the young singers today are nothing but trash and teach young fans nothing but Demi is one exception. She’s also right when saying that there is a time and place for everything. They don’t always need to have a hit song that’s supporting an important message. some songs just need to be fun and just something to rock out to.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    easy songs can be good too. and can be trashy.
    pink thinks easy songs she watched was trashy

  • hahahahah

    TRUTH.

  • hahahahah

    “raunchy and classless for years” – yea, including the years SHE was on them.

  • Carmen

    LMAO!!

  • Arrow 12

    All those drugs made her forget her old songs…… She does have some classics like “Blow Me” and “Get This Party Started”. Those songs are so inspirational.

  • Mike1288

    She didnt single her out but she said her name so….

    Oh Demi. Pink actually said she didnt mean you directly because she forgot you were there at all. Its embarrassing enough for you. Just stop answering.

    Actually she didnt say her name until Demi posted those twitter comments….Pink said she actually forgot that she performed (ouch lol)….so she just figured she was calling her out….but I mean, if the shoe fits..

  • Wendy

    Did anyone watch the show? The VMA’s are a joke, and “music” these days are a joke too. Maybe she was talking about Miley’s peformance….that performance was FUCKED up. I can’t believe people listen to music like that.

  • jane

    people are inspired by different things and Pink is old enough to know that by now. ignorant comment, but not sure it was directed at Demi.

  • Sim

    Sorry how did Taylor Swift kiss up to Nicki and Kanye, seems the other way around they were kissing up to her . It was them who wanted to be associated with her and Swift was is nice to say no.
    She already knew she was winning the 3 major awards best artist , best pop and best female artist .

    Nicki had the best performce slot , opening the show and she wanted it shared with Swift even played her bad blood song, so everyone knew her beef was really over.

    And Kanye couldn’t asked anyone and he asks Swift to present to him, someone he barely knows
    I actually thought it would be Jayz and if not him at least Rihanna who was in LA and who he asks is her, she barely said to words about him before handing him the award.

    If it was the other way around, guarantee Swift wouldn’t have had one tiny thought of picking him share her night.

  • Natalie

    This Demi person comes across so insecure making such a big deal responding to an opinion that wasn’t even about her. Pink said she forgot Demi had even performed at the show, as did most of us. Maybe she’s just looking for publicity. Pathetic.

  • Sweet Cheeks

    Sim, you’ve made some valid points. It was Nicki who stated, “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for video of the year.” I’m 99.9% sure she was talking about Taylor Swift. Isn’t it better to be seen with a frenemy than not to be seen at all in the top slot? Two anacondas singing Bad Blood. Take that Katy Perry. For ratings….anyone. As for Kanye, no one wants to share the stage with him. Taylor hugging it out with Kim K. in the audience, both looking adoringly at Jesus…I mean Yeezus was a little bit too touchy-feely for me. As if he was giving some unforgettable, iconic speech. He should of smoked another one and stayed home. All in the name for ratings as Michael Jackson is rolling over in his grave. Now he was one of the best video artists!!

  • Vy Nguyen

    Seems like Pink is just PO because she’s no longer relevant IMO.

  • johnny1248

    That’s why i prefer the EMAs, they have better performances and they bring some new talented artists we haven’t heard yet ? proof ? they are bringing Twenty One Pilots, Tori Kelly, James Bay and Jess Glynne this year
