Demi Lovato Praises Taylor Swift For Speaking Out About Politics Ahead of the Election

Demi Lovato is getting candid about celebrities opening up about their political views after debuting her song, “Commander in Chief”.

The 28-year-old singer has received some criticism about the song from her fans. However, she wasn’t backing down from releasing the song or apologizing for her personal views.

Now, in a new interview with CNN, Demi opened up about celebs speaking out, and mentioned Taylor Swift‘s recent political activism.

“You’re damned if you do, you’re damned if you don’t. You can list Taylor Swift as a perfect example of that exact saying,” Demi shared about notable people saying things about their beliefs. “For years she got trashed because she wasn’t taking a stance and wasn’t standing up for these rights and she kind of took a back seat. Now she’s become very political and there are people that are unhappy with that too.”

She added, “It’s just, like, you have to live what feels authentic to you. To me, that’s using my platform to speak out about the things that I see that are wrong.”
