Innocent song choice or something much more symbolic?

That's what some fans are asking themselves after Demi Lovato chose to perform her 2013 single "Made in the USA" Saturday night at the 2015 MLB All-Star Game concert.

While some may think it's just another one of the former Disney star's singles, others can't help but be reminded that Ariana Grande was originally scheduled to perform at the event this weekend.

Furthermore, Grande has been making headlines after she was caught on tape saying "I hate Americans. I hate America."

While the MLB made it clear that Grande simply had to pull out of the event because she had her wisdom teeth removed on Monday, the explanation didn't stop some on social media from sounding off on Lovato's possible diss. 

As soon as Lovato heard about the speculation, she decided to set the record straight with her very own messages on Twitter.

"Didn't get to sing ‘Made in the USA' on the 4th because I was singing #COOLFORTHESUMMER. No shade—stop the bulls--t," the 22-year-old wrote online. "I know it's a little late but I didn't get to sing this song on the fourth."

But what about the reports that say Lovato asked everyone in attendance the question, "How many of you guys are proud to be an American?"

According to Lovato, it's really not a big deal.

"ALSO—I ALWAYS ask that when I sing that song," she tweeted. "Can't y'all let a girl shine for one night? Smh."

Sounds like this case has been settled: No ladies and gentlemen, Lovato didn't shade Grande Saturday night. Carry on, everyone.
