After the song was released, Lovato stated that it was her way of approaching Trump and publicly holding him accountable.

Demi Lovato may have had a tumultuous few weeks amidst her split from ex Max Ehrich, but the singer is turning her attentions to nationwide matters in the run up to the USA election, using Taylor Swift as an example of celebrities voicing their political opinion.

While most of her Lovatics appreciated her speaking out against the president, a few of her Instagram followers also voiced their disappointment in her getting political.

Demi Lovato is defending herself against critics of her latest single, "Commander in Chief", after one fan warned the singer that the political pop song could "ruin" her career.

The 28-year-old is about to release her new song "Commander in Chief", aiming questions about social injustice toward President Trump. "We could care less what you post about politics but this song is going to at to far especially when the majority of your family is Republican", one comment reads. "I really hope this doesn't ruin your career Demetria". Video dropping tomorrow. I'm calling on all of you, please join me in voting for this years election.

She continued by insisting she doesn't give a damn if her new song hurts her, saying.

"Commander in Chief, honestly/ If I did the things you do, I couldn't sleep/ Seriously, do you even know the truth?/ We're in a state of crisis, people are dying/ While you line your pockets deep/ Commander in Chief /How does it feel to still be able to breathe?" The distinction between me and also the sort of artist you need and EXPECT me to be, (but I am sorry honey which won't ever BE me personally ) I actually do not care if that destroys my career. "At least I speak up about sh*t that's uncomfortable to talk about rather than trying to be politically correct 24/7". "And I'm putting it out even at the risk of losing fans", she added.

Demi Lovato is standing by her controversial new single, which attacks USA leader Donald Trump, insisting she values "integrity" over record sales. I'll take integrity in my work over sales any day.

"We have to turn up and vote because it's so important that our voices are heard", she said. "That is about discovering solutions from our sitting president".

Her advice to those having a difficult time right now is to try to be of service to others and don't be too hard on yourself."Just have compassion", Lovato said.
