“I just woke up. I just wanted to talk about this thing of me shushing people at my shows,” the 25-year-old said. “That was something that I did on that one song a couple times when I wanted to sing it a cappella or off the microphone so people could hear me and because I wanted to try something different.

“If you come to my shows, you know it’s an hour-and-a-half of all of us singing and screaming together. Also that dramatic-ass move was literally for an album called Melodrama, so don’t stress too hard.”

She told fans “sing it as loudly as you like so we can show the f–king trolls what it sounds like”. Watch below.
