And it is on here that you jump on to cuss her performance. Give it a rest pls'.
Following the social media storm, Amelia Monet herself took to Twitter to thank ger fans for their support and claimed that "there's two sides to every story".
Amelia also took to Snapchat to share a statement about the comments sdhe had received following her performance at the tribute show for Cadet.
She said, 'There's two sides to every story and in this case there definitely is and it's completely okay if you don't understand my version, but hopefully when y'all get older or you can understand everyone's truth instead of taking something and running w it.'
She went on to add, 'I've seen every comment good or bad and just know I appreciate every single person who has tried to defend me even though you done need to.'
