Demi Lovato Defends “Cool For The Summer” From Pink’s VMA Comments

Pink found herself under attack by Demi Lovato’s fans on Twitter last night after she posted comments to her Instagram that insinuated Demi, along with Miley Cyrus, gave VMA performances that were “gross” and “embarrassing.”

Turns out the fans were angry over nothing. Pink claims she actually “forgot” Demi even performed. We’re not sure which is more insulting – that her performance was gross or completely forgettable.

Pink Forgot Demi PerformedDemi took to Twitter this morning and sent out several tweets to defend her song choice for the VMAs. In response to Pink’s comment that “this trash won’t save any kids life,” Demi pointed out that her music does inspire her fans.

Harry Styles Survives Red Bull Attack

Harry Styles Poses With Fans While Getting Gas 6A few lucky fans bumped into One Directions’ Harry Styles at a gas station in New York.  He posed for pictures with each of them, which the girls then shared on Twitter.

In the pictures, it looks like Harry’s forehead managed to escape any major damage from Tuesday night’s run-in with a Red Bull can. While we’re sure Harry prefers hugs to headaches from fans, we still think he’d probably choose a shot to the head over some other places he’s been hit in the past.

Check out the gallery below for Harry’s pics with fans at the gas station.

Do you think some fans crazy behavior might be playing a role in the band’s planned hiatus?

The Director and Editor of “Wildest Dreams” Fire Back at “White-Washing” Claims

Sarcasm appears to be the only thing “Wildest Dreams” director Joseph Kahn can work better than a camera. The award winning director has collaborated with a who’s who of American rap, dance and pop artists, including Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Beyonce. Some even believe he might be the best music video director of all time.

“Wildest Dreams” is the third video Joseph has directed for Taylor Swift, following the successes of “Blank Space” and “Bad Blood” which together won a total of three VMAs, including 2015’s Video of the Year Award. But several media outlets have criticized “Wildest Dreams” for racial insensitivity. National Public Radio thought that the video presented “a glamorous version of the white colonial fantasy of Africa,” while The Daily Dot suggested that it celebrated “old-school Hollywood racism.

Joseph fired back on Twitter, defending himself, his team and the video with a series of sarcastic tweets. Some of the reports in the media didn’t seem to recognize that the entire senior creative team on “Wildest Dreams” were people of color – the video’s producer Jil Harden and editor Chancler Haynes are both African American and Joseph is originally from South Korea.  The director’s tweets range from poking fun at his own South-Korean heritage to suggesting that he can’t be racist if he has black friends.
