Demi Lovato Dedicates Song To Bruce Jenner

During her New Zealand concert last night, pop star Demi Lovato became the latest celebrity to wonderfully, publicly throw her support behind Bruce Jenner following the Olympian/reality star's brave gender identity discussion with Diane Sawyer, reports E! News

Lovato dedicated her song, “Warrior,” to the gold medalist, and the opening lines of the ballad couldn’t have been more appropriate: "This is a story that I have never told. I gotta get this off my chest to let it go." 

Admitting that she didn’t know who Jenner was before Keeping Up With The Kardashians made him a household name for the second time, Lovato addressed the cheering crowd:

"I just want to dedicate this song…It's so cheesy that I'm even doing this, but whatever. I want to dedicate it to someone who became an even bigger hero last night—Bruce Jenner! No matter if you agree with it or not, he probably saved so many lives and educated so many people [about] transitioning into becoming a woman and being transgender and what that's all about. So, yeah, I just want to dedicate it to Bruce Jenner." 

Lovato, who has been very open with fans about her own struggles in the public eye, is no stranger to the Kardashian/Jenner clan. Earlier this month, she readily admitted to trying out Kylie’s signature lip look, and back in 2011 she praised Kim Kardashian as a true friend whose support helped Lovato get through a stint in rehab. Kudos to Lovato for taking it full circle and returning the love to the Kardashian/Jenner clan with this mid-concert callout.
