Marie Osmond would like to set the record straight.

The Donnie & Marie star took to Twitter on Thursday to release an "official statement" responding to rumors that she wanted to perform at Donald Trump's upcoming inauguration.

"Many of you have seen various stories saying that I volunteered or that I am performing at the inauguration. So let me be clear!" Osmond started the statement. "I had no intention of performing at this inauguration, no matter who won!"

"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," she wrote, adding that she has made visits to the White House and done USO tours "regardless of who the sitting President is."

"I love this great country!" she concluded her message.

Rumors of Osmond's participation in the inauguration first started after the singer's interview with Yahoo Finance earlier this week, where she responded to a question asking if she had been invited to the event.

"I have not," she stated. "I don't get political… But 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. This is America. We should come together and I think an inauguration should be a time to unite, it really should."
