Pink Stands By VMAs Comments, But Has No Issue with Demi Lovato

Pink is speaking out after she made headlines from comments that she wrote about the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards performers on her private Instagram account.

“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 kids life,” the 35-year-old singer reportedly said. “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.”

Many people thought she was slamming Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, and Iggy Azalea as she didn’t give them praise.

Pink also wrote some public comments on her Twitter account, bashing the show as a whole and praising Tori‘s performance.

A few days later, Pink cleared up her remarks.

    if it was 2002 people would care what she thinks. it’s not. get over it, grandma.

    I actually agree with Pink 100% on this. This year’s VMA was an absolute shit show. It was all about who has the biggest ego amongst your stars of the decade. Aka Taylor, Miley, Nicki, and Kanye. It was hardly about the music. Anyways, Pink shouldn’t have to apologize for giving her honest opinion. Demi’s fans need to chill out.

    I missed Tori Kelly performance and can’t find it on youtube.

    good to know Im as deaf as hell!!

  • niagirl

    Truth. I’ve been saying this for longest.

  • nyckid

    How can Demi fans chill out when she quoted “The rest was trash, gross and won’t save kids lives” Even if she forgot demi performed it’s her fault for not hinking twice. Demi is if not one the most influential POP artist out there.

    How can Demi fans chill out when she quoted “The rest was trash, gross and won’t save kids lives” Even if she forgot demi performed it’s her fault for not thinking twice. It’s the fucking vmas maybe it wasn’t demis strong “inspiring” performance but she has done before. Her music does save lives so next time PINK should think twice.

    Influential? Please.
    I am impressed you can spell influential, but I am not sure you know what it means. Bob Dylan is influential, even Madonna (who I do not like) is influential. Demi Lovato is a Disney kid who is trying to have a pop career. Innocuous and bland.

  • brutallyhonest

    Grandma? Darling how old are you, 11?
    Go back and cry over 1D.

  • Natalie

    She mentioned the words “gross” and “embarrassing” … I think she had Miley Cyrus in mind. Nobody cares about Demi Lovato. Sorry.

  • fromanotherplanet

    Pink has always been shady LOL #GETEM

    But sis, Pink, let’s not forget you started out singing TRASH. Your first album was being you trying to pass off as a black woman. I mean I agree with her but people who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

  • disqus_xxwDaBtW3O

    Pink = Truth Cannon

  • moonlight

    So Pink gets to have her strong opinions, She’s basically doing exactly what Kanye does, talking s**t about other performers, only he does it on a stage and she hides it behind tweets ugh old bag.

    thnx for post this blog

  • laura

    Exactly. I don’t get why they’re making it about Demi Lovato, when she clearly had Miley Cyrus first and Nicki Minaji second (and probably Kanye West and Taylor Swift third) in mind.

  • laura

    I totally agree with Pink. If you look at pop music these days it seems it’s just about who can show more skin and have more sex appeal than about music itself.
    Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaji, Rita Ora, Rihanna, even Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift! All they do is just getting naked and simulating orgasms on stage!

    And Nicki even got mad because her not receiving a lot of nominations to her meant that girls with her bodytype are not appreciated… WTF?!?!? Girl, the VMAs should be about music, not about bodytypes!

    She;s right. TOday’s music sucks.

    Pink is FAR from Ugly….and she can sing circles around Kanye, Demi, Micki or Miley. #true

  • Artie Lee Bray

    She wasn’t trying to pass for anything. She was singing as the lead in a female R&B group when she was discovered. You know, white people sing R&B too…right?

  • Artie Lee Bray

    Grandma? She JUST turned 35.

  • http://batman-news.com Candace McGinnis

    She spoke the truth. The show was gross! It should be about music and entertaining…not sex, drugs and showing skin!

  • http://batman-news.com Candace McGinnis

    Oh please…she is in her early thirties! Madonna is a grandma!

  • JC

    Lavato is inconsequential in all this. Pink was trying to make a point, not attack her personally. Anybody with a wick of sense realizes this. Lavato’s kiddie fans need to take their mid-day nap & chill out. Don’t give others a reason to really not like her. (Personally, I don’t like her & turn the channel when she’s on the radio because I think she screams instead of sings. Just my opinion though.)

  • Revengefan0101

    She likes Bieber though? LMAO…

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    He can sing and his voice highly noticeable. Pink talked about music, not about public images.

  • moonlight

    I didn’t call her ugly nor did I question her talent lmao who are you replying to tho??

  • CallusedSilk

    Wait, let me get this straight, PINK is complaining about songs not being inspirational or being able to save people? Are you kidding me? Listen, people may suddenly associate Pink with crazy acrobatics, but let’s not forget that she got famous because of catchy pop songs with attitude.

    I guess ‘Na na na na na na na I wanna start a fight’ was deeper and more inspirational than I thought. And maybe ‘And you ain’t nothin’ but a hooker, sellin’ your f’ing soul’ is meant to save lives.

    So yeah, Pink can stand by this point, but it doesn’t change the fact that she’s a hypocrite.

  • CallusedSilk

    Except what makes that comment better? For someone reportedly trying to make it so that music inspires people and saves lives, somehow it’s okay to shame people?

    I agree that Demi Lovato isn’t exactly influential, but neither is Pink.

  • Natalie

    Pink was just voicing her opinion on the show. There’s truth to what she said. I think Demi Lovato is trying to get some publicity out of this since she’s making such a big deal of it. The comment wasn’t even directed at her, she’s not someone that a lot of people even care about… she’s not that big of a deal. Pink clearly had Miley in mind when she made that comment. If you see Miley’s latest video which is absolutely disgusting, you’ll understand. Miley’s new music does no good to society whatsoever, it’s just crap… it’s not influential to kids in a positive way, it’s not even fun, it’s just gross.

  • CallusedSilk

    And once again, since when has all of pink’s music been some deep, beneficial statement to society? Spoiler alert: most of it isn’t. Music doesn’t always have to be some huge statement, it can be about just having fun. Also, just because you don’t particularly care for something doesn’t make it disgusting. I don’t care for pink at all, but good for whoever does like her.

    And once again, you can’t bash someone yet also maintain having the moral high ground.

  • Natalie

    I don’t particularly care about Pink either, but I do agree with her opinion on this year’s VMAs.

    If you look back at the history of vma performances (Michael Jackson, Britney, Madonna, Christina, Justin Timberlake, Eminem etc..) musicians are supposed to bring their a-game to these award shows.

    All musicians use with their ‘sexiness’ because sexy sells. But what we see nowadays from some performers is just plain tacky, it’s not even sexy and it is pretty gross. IMO

  • CallusedSilk

    And there were people that thought this same stuff about Britney, Madonna and Christina. There’s been some tacky stuff from all the artists you listed. Pink has also been tacky. No one is ever going to make everyone happy and that’s not the point of music. The vma’s were never about inspiring people or saving someone’s life.

  • Natalie

    Look Pink simply gave her opinion of the show, people are entitled to their opinions: musicians, non- musicians – the at home audience..this Demi person apparently has an album coming out some time soon, so she is making Pink’s comment all about herself to be on the news for some publicity… even though Pink’s comment wasn’t even directed at her – but clearly at Miley who’s latest video is just her spitting glittery goo out and taking it back in and sounding all drunk and messed up… Demi is just looking for some attention, which is pathetic.

  • CallusedSilk

    So pink can have an opinion but Demi can’t? Also, why is Demi having an opinion attention seeking, but pink’s unsolicited bashing is what? Seriously, I’m curious as to how you justify this.

  • Natalie

    Pink posted her opinion on her P R I V A T E instagram account… she wasn’t trying to get any publicity out of it. Demi doesn’t have anything to do with anything, she’s just trying to create a feud with someone (for publicity) who didn’t even care enough to mention her.

  • fromanotherplanet

    Try nice but no!! She was trying to pass off as something she clearly wasn’t. She copied the signature look of a BLACK R/B SINGER and that rendered her INAUTHENTIC!!!!. Bye!
