Multi-talented entertainer Marie Osmond made headlines early last week after comments she made about performing at Donald Trump's inauguration.
"When it comes to our country, I think we need to unite. And to not support our president, I think, is wrong. I think we should all support our president whether we’re happy or sad," Osmond told Yahoo! Finance.
The comment ignited a firestorm of criticism online. The "Meet Me In Montana" singer now says that her comments were taken out of context. In a post made to Twitter, Osmond ended all speculation that she may be performing at the historic event.
Marie Osmond says her comments about being open to performing at President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration were taken out of context.
"Many of you have seen various stories saying that I volunteered or that I am performing at the inauguration," Osmond wrote. "So let me be clear: I have no intention of performing at this inauguration, no matter who won!" She adds, "I try to stay out of politics. I'm an entertainer. My interview statement simply tried to be nice and promote a message of love, not hate."
