After some confusion over whether singer Marie Osmond did or did not intend to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration, Osmond took to Twitter to make it clear that she wouldn’t be appearing. However, she also made it clear that it didn’t have anything to do with politics.
Osmond issued a statement on the social media site — you can see it in full below — saying she would not have performed no matter who won the election.
Osmond’s statement followed a period of confusion for her fans after news outlets reported that she was willing to appear at the inauguration. Those reports followed the publication Monday by Yahoo of an interview in which Osmond was quoted saying: “To not support our president I think is wrong. I think we should. I think we should all support whether we are happy or sad or everything else. This is America. … We should come together, and I think an inauguration should be a time to unite, it really should.”
Meanwhile, Trump reportedly has booked a Bruce Springsteen tribute band to play at the inauguration.
