LOS ANGELES, Feb 3: Pop sensation Demi Lovato faced a wave of criticism on social media following her rendition of the 2013 hit song “Heart Attack” at the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection Concert in New York City this week. The performance was part of her 10-song set at the cardiovascular health event.

Despite receiving backlash, Lovato revealed on Friday to The Hollywood Reporter that she initially believed she wouldn’t be able to perform the song again after her heart attack and near-death experience several years ago. She expressed her connection to the song during the concert, sharing her journey and its significance.

“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, 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,” Lovato stated while introducing the track.

As videos from the event circulated online, some questioned the appropriateness of performing “Heart Attack” at a gathering of individuals who have experienced heart attacks. One TikTok user commented, “I think ‘Heart Attack’ should have been left off that list, considering there was a roomful of people who have had heart attacks. I just don’t know the motivation behind that one.”

Nevertheless, Lovato found support from fans who pointed out her personal experience with a heart attack in 2018, which she candidly shared in her 2021 docuseries, “Dancing With the Devil.”

The Hollywood Reporter also learned that the American Heart Association supported Lovato’s decision to perform “Heart Attack,” and the crowd at the event received it positively.

The Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection Concert aimed to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and generate funds for research to discover lifesaving advancements in the field.
