“I felt embarrassed and sad. And old. We’re getting old,” Pink, 35, reportedly wrote in the post. “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. 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.”

She reportedly continued: “Let down by my industry and peers. Beside Macklemore and pharell [Williams] and [Justin] bieber (pre sob fest) and the weekend, Tori Kelly was dope too. The rest was gross and embarrassing and hard for this aging pop star to believe.”

Pink noticeably left out other performers from the night, including host Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, and Demi Lovato – who called the singer out for her comments on Twitter on Friday, Sept. 4.

Prior to Lovato’s comments, however, Pink clarified that she had no problem with the former Disney star. “Please look for a feud elsewhere. I have no issue with Demi Lovato or anyone else. I actually forgot she performed. I have opinions. MANY,” Pink tweeted on Thursday, Sept. 3. “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. Peace.”
