Demi Lovato made a bold political statement with her new song “Commander in Chief,” intended to mobilize fans to get out and vote ahead of the general election on Nov. 3.
While the song was met with some critics who claimed the singer should stick to music and stay out of politics, Lovato responded to a comment on her anti-Trump stance. “I literally don’t care if this ruins my career,” she wrote.
However, despite a few trolls, “Commander in Chief” also got a positive reception on social media, with a number of stars applauding Lovato for standing up for what she believes in.
“Thanks @ddlovato for speaking truth to power with this moving song #CommanderInChief,” actor Mark Ruffalo shared. “Let’s all lift up our voices right now to encourage our sisters and brothers across this country to vote and create a future where we can all breathe.”
As for whether or not the song will “ruin her career,” Ruffalo assured, “Don’t worry about it. Not only will you be fine but you just elongated your career by telling the truth and standing up for the oppressed.”
