Demi Lovato is having a gay old time in Los Angeles…
The 21-year-old part-Mexican American singer/actress has released the official music video for her latest single, “Really Don’t Care.”
In the high-energy clip, Lovato shows her support for the LGBT community in the music video.
Premiering on VEVO on Thursday, it was shot at the annual L.A. Pride parade in West Hollywood earlier this month.
Channeling her inner rock star, the former Disney Channel star performs the song smack dab in the middle of the parade. In another scene, she joins a number of fans who dance while lip-syncing to the track. Also making appearances are collaborator Cher Lloyd, Perez Hilton and “special guest” Wilmer Valderrama.
“Really Don’t Care” is the fourth single from Lovato’s 2013 self-titled album Demi. It was originally a break-up song, but the singer has turned into a song with a purpose.
“One of my good friends who is gay, we were talking about this and he said, ‘You know what? I would really like to see someone stand up for us.’ So when I heard that idea I said, ‘Absaf**kinglutley that’s amazing.’ And I love that we were able to turn this song into an empowering anthem rather than just another negative break-up song,” she explained in an interview with MTV. “It goes for not just people in the LGBT community, but for anyone that’s been bullied.”
