Demi Lovato has come out to discredit the reports that she dissed Justin Bieber at the X Factor auditions on Wednesday.
According to reports championed by TMZ, Demi had bashed one 22-year old hopeful whose attitude she did not like, commenting after the performance that the music industry already has enough of those bad-attitude artists and ‘We don’t need another little punk running the streets.’
Then while commenting on another contestant’s performance of JB’s song As Long As You Love Me, the X Factor judge was quoted as saying that ‘Well, finally someone can sing the song the way it was meant to be sung.’
TMZ then added in conclusion that Demi is ‘no fan of Biebs’ and ‘does not have the patience for Bieber’s antics like BFF Selena Gomez does.’
But on Saturday, Demi took to Twitter in response to the report, writing, ‘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..’ adding, ‘Meaning, finally someone sang it the way JUSTIN sang it.’
And as for her not being a Biebs fan, she tweeted, ‘Ain’t got nothin’ but love for @justinbieber and his beliebers.’
However, she said nothing about whether she has ‘the patience for Bieber’s antics like BFF Selena Gomez does.’
