Demi Lovato: I Didn’t Diss Ariana Grande During MLB All-Star Game Concert
Demi Lovato is slamming back at online haters who claimed she dissed Ariana Grande during her performance on Saturday at the MLB All-Star Game Concert in Cincinnati, Ohio. As Gossip Cop reported, Lovato stepped in for Grande, who dropped out on Wednesday, just a few days after she was caught on a surveillance camera at a California donut shop saying, “I hate America.”
Grande apologized for the remark, and noted in a statement last week that she was pulling out of the All-Star Game Concert not because of the controversy, but because she had just gotten her wisdom teeth removed and couldn’t sing.
Lovato happily took over the performing duties and sang several of her own hit songs, including “Neon Lights,” “Skyscraper,” “Heart Attack,” “Give Your Heart A Break,” “Let It Go,” and “Really Don’t Care.” In the middle of her 75-minute set, Lovato launched into her 2013 song “Made In The USA” and told the crowd, “I know it’s a little late, but I didn’t get to sing this on the Fourth of July… How many of you are proud to be an American?”
A number of people watching the performance took to Twitter to slam Lovato for seemingly taking a shot at Grande for performing the patriotic song and talking about being “proud to be an American,” in light of Grande’s “I hate America” comment. But Lovato quickly fired back at her detractors on Twitter: “Didn’t get to sing Made in the USA on the 4th because I was singing #COOLFORTHESUMMER. No shade – stop the bullsh*t,” adding, “ALSO – I ALWAYS ask that when I sing that song. Can’t yall let a girl shine for one night? Smh.”
