Demi Lovato Defends Herself for Performing 'Heart Attack' at Heart Disease Event After Backlash

The 'Cool for the Summer' singer's representative explains the reason why the artist decided to deliver the song at an event that aims to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease.

AceShowbiz - Demi Lovato has defended herself for performing her song titled "Heart Attack" at a heart disease event. After she was met with backlash for delivering the single, the "Cool for the Summer" singer's representative revealed the reason why the songstress did so.

On Friday, February 2, the 31-year-old songstress' representative gave an explanation on the matter by sending an email to Entertainment Weekly. The message read, "She spoke on the mind-heart connection."

"It was a sensitive moment intended to champion the women in the room, the very reason why Demi was at the event," it continued. "She did open with a beautiful intro on why she chose the song and addressed the room, talking about the mind and heart connection. It was actually a beautiful moment."

Meanwhile, an insider spoke to Page Six, "Following Demi's heart attack and near-death experience, for a few years, Demi thought she would not be able to sing 'Heart Attack'." The insider added that she chose the song after being able to "reclaim" it. Furthermore, it was revealed that the decision was encouraged by the organization that held the event.

Demi delivered the song "Heart Attack", which she released back in 2013, when she made an appearance at the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection event, which aims to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease. Before singing the track, she told other attendees why she decided to perform that particular single.

"While my next song is about the intense feelings that come with falling in love as well as heartbreak, opening yourself up, taking risks and not being afraid to do it again," she elaborated. "This song has many parallels for me, my journey and a reminder for all of us in the room just how strong the mind-heart-body connection truly is."

After the "Tell Me You Love Me" songstress took the stage, a video documenting her performance was released on X, formerly known as Twitter, and went viral. It led social media users to voice their opinions on the matter. In the replies section of the clip, one in particular asked, "Well that's a bit dark, don't you think?"

Another pointed out, "She didn't think this one through." In the meantime, a third asked, "I [for real] can't stop many ppl did that song choice decision go through before she performed it live??"
