Demi Lovato is ready for an all-star affair…
The 22-year-old part-Mexican American actress has come aboard as the new headline act for the MLB All-Star Game concert on Saturday night (July 11), replacing previously announced headliner Ariana Grande at Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park.
The MLB has yet to issue a statement on the change, and neither Lovato nor Grande have posted about it on social media. A rep for Lovato confirmed to Billboard that she’s indeed performing at the star-studded baseball game on Saturday night.
Grande is currently facing backlash for a bizarre video in which she declares “I hate America” in a donut shop. No word on whether her removal from her the All-Star Game concert was the result of that controversy.
Meanwhile, Lovato recently returned to music with new single “Cool For The Summer,” which she performed for the first time last week in New York. The track precedes Lovato’s forthcoming fifth album, the follow up to her popular album Demi.
This isn’t Lovato’s first MLB stint…
She previously performed the National Anthem at the World Series in 2012.
