Were you ever taught when you were young... If you mess with things selfishly, they’re bound to come undone?
In her Instagram stories, Lovato posted a lengthy message responding to fans who are criticizing the singer for taking a political stance with her art. “You do understand as a celebrity, I have a right to political views as well? Or did you forget that we aren’t just around to entertain people for our entire lives ... that we are citizens of the same country and we are humans with opinions as well,” wrote LovatoThe singer continued, adding “I literally don’t care if this ruins my career. This isn’t about that. My career isn’t about that. I made a piece of art that stands for something I believe in. And I’m putting it out even at the risk of losing fans. I’ll take integrity in my work over sales any day. 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 in order to please my audience.”“Commander In Chief” is Lovato’s latest unannounced single. At the end of September, Lovato surprised fans (and her management team) with the breakup ballad “Still Have Me,” which Lovato released only a few days after news surfaced that the singer had ended her engagement with fiancé Max Ehrich. Also in September, Lovato teamed up with Marshmello for the collaboration “OK To Not Be OK.”Lovato is set to perform at tonight’s Billboard Music Awards, which will feature returning host Kelly Clarkson and appearances from BTS, Alicia Keys, Bad Bunny, Post Malone, Doja Cat, John Legend and more. The 2020 Billboard Music Awards will air at 8 p.m. ET on CTV2.[video_embed id='2054303']Before you go: Demi Lovato’s ex Max Ehrich is ‘not leaving her alone’[/video_embed]View this post on Instagram
