During her interview with CNN, the Grammy award-winning singer was quoted saying, "I'm a very social person and so not being able to see people, I've felt very isolated at times and my anxiety and depression has come back in waves".

NBC officials appeared to censor Demi Lovato's plea for fans to vote in the upcoming USA election during her performance at the Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday night.

The song in itself is quite controversial, but it was the singer's timely pleas for listeners to go out and vote that reportedly caused NBC to censor her performance.

The anti-Donald Trump song was nearly as polarizing as the president himself, and though the song charted at #1 on United States iTunes, Lovato received messages from listeners disavowing her and wishing her death.


Lovato teamed up with Finneas O'Connell (aka Billie Eilish's brother) to record the politically-3charged song. "Loud and proud, best believe / We'll still take a knee while you're Commander in Chief". When she introduced it, she inspired others to vote.

However, during the broadcast, the camera cut a close-up of the singer when the music stopped, not in the background of a political theme.

In an original recording obtained by the outlet, Lovato's live debut of "Commander in Chief" included a clear display of the word "VOTE" across the video board on the stage. The network is also set to host a town hall with Trump on Thursday evening. "My career isn't about that", she told fans on Instagram.

It probably wasn't the note that Lovato wanted the performance to end on, given that she has been vocal about her feelings towards the current U.S. administration as well as the importance of voting in the upcoming presidential election.


"For years she got trashed because she wasn't taking a stance and wasn't standing up for these rights and she kind of took a back seat". "I literally don't care if this ruins my career".

In response to one such message, Lovato wrote, "You do understand as a celebrity, I have a right to political views as well? I'll take integrity in my work over sales any day".

Demi Lovato has released a music video for the political song'Commander'.
