"And, honestly, for me, whether you are a Republican or Democrat, just get out and vote". "/ I'm not the only one that's been affected and resented every story you've spun".

Lovato responded to trolls of the track on social media as well, saying "I literally don't care if this ruins my career".

Lovato released the Finneas-produced anti-Trump anthem, which she co-wrote with Finneas, Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, and Eren Cannata, the day of the awards ceremony, and it was immediately polarizing - with some "fans" on Instagram even warning her to steer clear of politics, lest she "ruin" her career. The music video released to accompany the track celebrates unity showcasing Americans of all races, nationalities and ages coming together as One Nation united ahead of the November 3 Presidential election. "She emphasized a particular remark where a priest expressed disappointment in Lovato's choice to telephone Donald Trump, writing" I'm personally embarrassed for a Lovatic at the moment", and adding they expect the tune does not destroy the singer's career.

Was Demi Lovato's politically-charged Billboard Music Awards performance censored by NBC?

The 2020 Billboard Music Awards were originally scheduled to take place in Las Vegas on Wednesday, April 29, but were forced to be postponed due to the ongoing pandemic. You can list Taylor Swift as a flawless example of that saying exact.

That all changed in 2018 when she couldn't stay silent anymore about an anti-LGBT politician in her home state.

"It's just that you have to live what feels authentic to you", Lovato said. You know, once they can agree on basics like DEMOCRACY = GOOD! She said, "As much as I would like to be sad that I disappointed you, I'm too busy being bummed that you expect me, a queer Hispanic woman, to silence my views/beliefs to please my audience".

"I will take ethics in my job over earnings daily".

The singer went on to write down that she "made a bit of artwork that stands for one thing I imagine in", noting that she's acknowledged the danger of dropping followers and gross sales. Some of the lyrics include: "If I do the things you do I couldn't sleep, seriously, do you even know the truth?"
