Demi Lovato Weighs In on Washington Siege: ‘I’m Angry, Embarrassed and Ashamed’

Like millions of Americans watching on at home, Demi Lovato was horrified by images of the siege on the Capitol. And like many others who vented their frustrations on social media, the pop star wants the nightmare to end, now.

Turning to Twitter, Lovato joined the chorus of calls for president Trump's impeachment, and vowed to convert her misery into new music.

“My heart is broken,” she writes on Twitter. “It makes me to sad to believe how naive I was to think this couldn’t possibly happen, and yet it did. Here we are. For everyone in my comments saying “where’s d7” or wanting me to sing instead of speaking up about what needs to change in this country...”

Lovato also shared a post from Black Lives Matters, which questions the tactics of law enforcement in D.C. and wondered just how tragic the day’s events would have turned if BLM was behind the mob.

In a followup post, Lovato wrote. “THIS IS WHY I POST AS MUCH AS I DO. THIS IS WHY I CARE. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN ANY FUCKING MORE. I’m angry, embarrassed and ashamed. I’m in the studio working on something special after today’s assault on democracy.” She signed off with the hashtag #impeachtrumptonight.

Earlier in the week, Scooter Braun revealed that Lovato is back in the studio. Now we know what’s inspiring her new work.
