Pop singer Demi Lovato just penned a bizarre op-ed in which she talked about how ashamed she is about her “privilege,” adding that she hated sharing “the same skin color as the people accused of committing heinous crimes.”
“At first, I was self-conscious about speaking out about these issues because I didn’t want anyone to feel like it wasn’t genuine,” Lovato wrote in an open letter published in Vogue on Tuesday. “I also felt like I wanted to call every person of color that I knew and apologize, which I know isn’t the right thing to do either. Like a lot of people. I didn’t know what to do.”
“All I knew was that I hated that I shared the same skin color as the people accused of committing heinous crimes against Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and many, many other Black lives,” she added.

Lovato went on to say that she has not been able to protest with Black Lives Matter activists in recent months because she has underlying health conditions that put her “at risk” for complications, should she get coronavirus.
“So here I am, sitting in a home that I was able to afford with the money that I have from singing, while people of color are fearing for their lives every day,” she continued. “I realized this was a lightning bolt jolting through my body, where I was reminded of my privilege.”
The “Sorry, Not Sorry” singer said that she “began posting things” to social media in an attempt to “educate people” because she believes she has an “overwhelming responsibility to help spread awareness” about injustice. As if there aren’t enough radically liberal entertainers who are doing just that!
“I’ve always taken my advocacy work seriously, but now I’m looking at it with renewed focus. In this particular instance, what motivated me was knowing how much of myself comes from Black culture,” Lovato said. “I grew up listening to Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston and other soulful singers, but those two Black women in particular shaped me into the vocalist I am.”

“If you look at my life, everything that I have — money, success, a roof over my head — it’s because of the inspiration those Black women gave me,” she added. “I continue to be constantly inspired by people of color today.”
It seems that Lovato is just another self-obsessed entertainer who feels it is her job to lecture the rest of us about liberal politics and social justice. What a shame!
