Demi Lovato Plugs Transgender Rights During Billboard Music Awards

Demi Lovato

The “Confident” singer didn’t shy away wearing her support on her sleeve.

Demi Lovato can seemingly do no wrong. She's an undisputed talent, an unapologetic all for LGBTs--and most importantly, knows how to make her best friend Nick Jonas squirm.

At this year's Billboard Music Awards, she once again used a national audience for good. While singing "Cool for the Summer," Lovato sported a dazzling top with the male and female bathroom icons merged. It was a clear call-out to the infamous "bathroom bills" that have targeted transgender men and women in North Carolina, Mississippi, and other states.

Lovato and Jonas are touring together this summer, but that tour won't include a stop in the Tar Heel State. In April, the star tweeted that shows in Raleigh and Charlotte had been canceled to show her opposition of the state's bathroom law, HB2.
