Demi Lovato Addresses Trump With New Song, 'Commander In Chief'

Demi Lovato Addresses Trump With New Song, 'Commander In Chief'”

She added, "It's just, like, you have to live what feels authentic to you".

The song in itself is quite controversial, but it was the singer's timely pleas for listeners to go out and vote that reportedly caused NBC to censor her performance.

Following Lovato's performance, the music video for "Commander in Chief" dropped on YouTube.

At the end of the video, she appears and sings the last half of the politically imposed song.

After she released "Commander in Chief", an overt anti-Trump protest anthem co-written with Julia Michaels, Finneas, Justin Tranter and Eren Cannata, Demi Lovato delivered an emotional performance of the single at the Billboard Music Awards, telecast Wednesday night. "/ We're in a state of crisis, people are dyin' / While you line your pockets deep / Commander in Chief, how does it feel to still / Be able to breathe?" When she announced it, she encouraged others to vote.

In footage obtained by TMZ, the word "vote" was splashed up on the stage behind her after she concluded the song but, in the final broadcast, the camera cut to a close-up of the singer when the music stopped.

The 28-year-old is also facing backlash upon the song's release on Instagram by her upset fans.

Throughout the track, Lovato does not hold back as she raises her voice about the country's leader.

"We have to turn up and vote because it's so important that our voices are heard", Lovato told CNN in an interview shortly after the song was released.

"I don't care if this ruined my career", Loovato clapped. And I'm putting it out even at the risk of losing fans. In a new interview with a leading daily, Demi opened up about celebs speaking out and mentioned Taylor Swift's recent political activism.

In response to one such message, Lovato wrote, "You do understand as a celebrity, I have a right to political views as well?"

She continued explaining that she, as "a queer, Hispanic woman", will not "silence (her) views/beliefs in order to please" fans.
