Tensions have gotten high between Ariana Grande & Demi Lovato & it’s all because of Ari’s “One Love Manchester” benefit concert.  The show, taking place June 4 at the Emirates Old Trafford Center, features artists like Ariana herself, Justin Bieber, Usher Coldplay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, & Niall Horan, is raising money for the victims of the Manchester attacks last week.  While the line up in chock full of huge acts, Lovatics aren’t too happy that their girl, Demi Lovato didn’t make the cut.   Instagram user Whitivato posted a picture of the concert announcement on Instagram asking why Demi wasn’t included in the concert after she expressed her support for Ariana and the victims of the attack.Once Demi responded to the post, it started getting a ton of attention from fans. Fans began defending Demi, saying that she most likely wanted to make it clear that she would have taken part in the event. Others are pointing the finger at Ariana saying that she is “definitely the one booking the performers.” Other fans put Demi on blast for commenting on the post & making it “about her.” It’s important to remember that this concert is way more important than celeb squads. Ariana wasn’t dissing Demi by not inviting her to participate and Demi probably didn’t mean anything by explaining she wasn’t invited in the first place. This is about supporting the victims of a horrible terrorist attack and giving citizens of Manchester hope in its wake.
