Demi Lovato released her new video for single “Really Don’t Care” featuring Cher Lloyd, with her performance filmed on June 8 during the L.A. Pride parade, with swarms of fans, LBGT supporters and a glimpse at some haters as well.
Starting by showing what is most likely Westboro Baptist Church picketers, with sign’s stating “Homo sex is a sin” and “Jesus saves from Hell," Demi announces that over the microphone “my Jesus loves all,” just before the beat starts for the song.
On a float going down the street, Lovato is quickly surrounded by rainbow-clad fans and supporters. The video mixes her performance with snippets of fans singing along, with a cameo from Perez Hilton as well.
Other parts include Lovato and fans in a pink, brightly lit room dancing and singing, where we see Lloyd sing her part also, and then a stage where Blink-182’s Travis Barker drives the beat.
“Really Don’t Care," off her mega hit Neon Lights album, is an infectious dance song, with a hypnotic beat and obvious defiant chorus. It wasn’t until the perceived break-up song, took on a different meaning as Lovato explained in an interview with Refinery 29. Regarding the video she stated, “I had a friend that said, 'What if you do it at Pride?' And, I said, 'That’s amazing. Because what better place to be than at an event where everyone is celebrating that they accept themselves for who they are and don’t give a fuck what other people think?'"
Lovato is headed back out on the road with MKTO and Christina Perri in support. The second leg of her tour begins on Sept 6.
