Demi Lovato fans have been waiting quite some time for the release of her “Really Don’t Care” music video, and as of Thursday, the wait has ended! While many believed the song to be this summer’s break up anthem, the music video proves otherwise.
Demi’s song “Really Don’t Care” seems to follow along the lines of a traditional break up song: girl falls in love with boy, boy finds a new girl and breaks up with girl number one, boy’s heart gets broken by girl number two and returns to girl number one only to be told to screw off. I mean, just check out some of these lyrics:
You started messing with my head until I hit a wall
Maybe I should’ve known, maybe I should’ve known
That you would walk, you would walk out the door, hey!
Said we were done, then met someone and rubbed it in my face
Cut to the part, she broke your heart, and then she ran away
While Demi’s song may seem like a classic break up song, with the release of the “Really Don’t Care” music video, her song has taken on a whole new meaning. According to E! News, Demi worked with a number of different organizations to turn it from a break up anthem to a song of empowerment, one that shows her support for the LGBTQ community.
How did she turn “Really Don’t Care” from a break up song to a song of empowerment? According to MTV, the pop star took over the Los Angeles’ Gay Pride Parade on June 8 “to sing with the crowd, party with her friends and brush off all those haters.”
She told E! Online:
“When I originally wrote it, it was a breakup song. But now I have sung it so many times that it kind of no longer has a significance in that sort of way. When I sing it, I always want to inspire and empower. I thought what other people could relate to really not caring what people think. I thought of bullies and the LGBT community who are constantly scrutinized. What better place is there than L.A. Pride to celebrate who you are and not really caring what people think?”
What has everyone so pumped up about Demi Lovato’s new music video? Not only its message of not caring what others think, but also all the special guests that pop up throughout the video. Of course, Cher Lloyd made an appearance, but so did drummer Travis Barker, The Vampire Diaries‘ Kat Graham, Perez Hilton, and even her on and off boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama, according to E! News.
