After drawing the ire of millions of Beliebers, Demi Lovato recently clarified her remarks about Justin Bieber during “X-Factor” auditions earlier this week.
While judging hopefuls at USC, a contestant sang the Canadian pop star”s hit, “As Long as You Love Me” to which the “Heart Attack” singer responded, “Well, finally someone can sing the song the way it was meant to be sung.”
Later, Demi tweeted, “Btw – no shade thrown at Justin. So many people audition with his songs.. Finally someone sang it the way it was meant to be sung.. Meaning, finally someone sang it the way JUSTIN sang it.”
Discouraged by how her words were taken, Ms. Lovato explained to MTV, “What they didn”t put in the tabloids is that I actually turned around “cause the audience was like, “Oooh” and I was like “Actually, guys, you took me the wrong way.” I actually explained myself right then and there, but they didn”t put that on TMZ.”
