Move over, Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus.

We may have a new feud coming out of the MTV Video Music Awards. Sort of.

Following Sunday night’s broadcast, Pink jumped on Instagram and made it clear she isn’t a big fan of most who took to the stage at the event.

“I felt embarrassed and sad. And old. We’re getting old,” Pink told followers.

“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?”

The artist then went on to single out those performances she appreciated… and, by extension, those she did not.

“Beside Macklemore and pharel 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.”

The rest, of course, included Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and Demi Lovato.

And Lovato took exception to any charges of being uninspiring.

“Cool For The Summer may not “save kid’s lives” or “inspire” but I’d say Skyscraper & Warrior have done a pretty good job of helping people cope with mental illness,” Lovato Tweeted in response to Pink’s critique, adding:

“VMA’s are sexy and fun. There’s a time and place for everything.”

Lovato, of course, spent weeks in rehab back in 2010 and has dedicated herself since to empowering others who suffer from a lack of self-confidence.

So it’s understandable why she’d be upset.

But Pink said she was not singling Demi out in any way.

“Please look for a feud elsewhere. I have no issue with Demi Lovato or anyone else,” she wrote online Thursday.

“I actually forgot she performed. I have opinions. MANY. 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.”

Perhaps then realizing that she’ll never win any kind of battle over social media, Pink concluded:

“In other news, it’s gonna be a beautiful day, I hope you look up from your keyboards and enjoy it.”
