American singer Demi Lovato is not a fan of President Trump and she is no longer hiding it.
After the 26-year-old rising star shared a new song, “Commander in Chief,” that was critical of the president, one of her supporters posted to social media that they were not pleased.
“I hope you realize this makes people that don’t have the same political views feel like they can’t listen to you anymore,” the user said, via the Hill.
“I’m personally ashamed to be a Lovatic right now but no matter how hard it is I’m not letting this song change my feelings about you especially after everything you have helped me with,” the individual continued. “I really hope this doesn’t ruin your career Demetria.”
The Hill adds:
Lovato unveiled “Commander in Chief” on Tuesday, which sharply condemns Trump and his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, but not does not mention him by name. She sang the tune live for the first time at the Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday.
“Commander in chief, honestly / If I did the things you do, I couldn’t sleep / Seriously, do you even know the truth?” Lovato sings.
In another part of the song, Lovato asks, “Do you get off on pain? We’re not pawns in your game.”
She sings that Trump’s critics “won’t give up, stand our ground,” adding, “We’ll be in the streets while you’re bunkering down.”
Lovato defended political views and said celebrities like her “aren’t just around to entertain people for our entire lives.”
“I literally don’t care if this ruins my career,” Lovato said. “This isn’t about that. My career isn’t about that.”
“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,” she continued.
