Pink Grossed Out By VMAs

Pink supposedly felt the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards were just plain ‘gross’.

The 35-year-old Just Give Me a Reason singer watched the raunchy awards show on television this year.

But the 2015 MTV VMAs, hosted by Miley Cyrus, turned out to be a huge disappointment for Pink, as she felt many of the event’s outtakes were staged.

‘I felt embarrassed and sad,’ she allegedly wrote on her private @bethwsh Instagram account. ‘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. 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 peers. Beside Macklemore and phar. and 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. (sic)’

The 2015 MTV VMAs received some of the lowest viewership ratings in broadcast history. Many critics have panned last Sunday’s show as inauthentic. Controversial moments include when Nicki Minaj verbally attacked Miley live on air, calling the Wrecking Ball pop star a ‘b***h’. Justin Bieber also cried after performing his new track What Do You Mean, while Kanye West announced his future plans to run for political office as the President of the United States of America. Demi Lovato put on a super sexy performance with Iggy Azalea and Miley also wore next to nothing onstage.
