Pink Says the VMAs Were 'Trash,' Demi Lovato Responds!

It's hard to be a celebrity with opinions, especially when you share them on social media. Pink learned this firsthand after she posted a lengthy message criticizing a number of artists who performed at the MTV VMAs on Sunday.

In a message posted to her private Instagram account, Pink wrote that she "felt embarrassed and sad" by what she saw at the awards show.

"Music is supposed to inspire. It saved my life. This trash won't save any kids life," Pink wrote. "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."

While she didn't call out any of the performers she disliked by name, she did take the time to name the few artists she did enjoy.

"Let down by my industry peers. Beside Macklemore and pharell and bieber (pre-sob fest) and the weekend, Tori Kelly was dope too," Pink wrote. "The rest was gross and embarrassing and hard for this aging pop star to believe."

It didn't take long for the message to get around, and soon many were speculating as to who Pink was criticizing specifically. Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato were among the stars who performed.

On Thursday evening, Pink took to Twitter to shoot down rumors that she was trying to start any conflicts.

"Please look for a feud elsewhere. I have no issue with Demi Lovato or anyone else. I actually forgot she performed," Pink wrote, causing some to accuse her of throwing shade with that tweet as well.

Pink later clarified that she wasn't apologizing or backing down either.

"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," Pink wrote.

Throughout the night, Pink retweeted fans who supported her and made jokes about the controversy. After a few hours, Pink concluded the night with a cordial message to her fans.

This isn't the first time Pink has taken her critics to task on Twitter. In April, the "Raise Your Glass" singer slammed haters who had criticized her for gaining weight. Check out the video to see her epic response.
