Demi Lovato is increasingly criticized by people on social networks, after singing her song "Heart Attack" (2013) at the event held at the "American Heart Association" (AHA).
The video circulating on social media shows Lovato participating in the "Go Red for Woman, Red Dress Collection" concert, which aims to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease.
People think her song is an odd choice, especially since Lovato suffered 3 strokes and a heart attack during an overdose in 2018.
“Ok, this is pretty dark,” wrote one person on X (former Twitter); "I didn't think about it for a long time," commented another user of the social network, while someone else said: "I can't stop laughing. How many people saw the music selection before they decided that Demi would perform it live?".
However, a source told Page Six that the "Heart Attack" performance was intentional and encouraged by the AHA itself.
Before singing her 2013 hit, Demi said: “My next song is about the powerful feeling that comes with love and heartbreak. I opened my heart, I took risks and I'm not afraid to do it again. This song has a lot of symbolism for me, for my journey and for everyone who is here, it serves as a reminder of how strong the mind-heart-body connection is."
While a person who was present at the event said that the guests enjoyed the song and did not think about anything else.
