On Friday night, Bruce Jenner gave the most important interview of his life, revealing: “For all intents and purposes, I’m a woman.” After months of speculation and media scrutiny, Jenner gave his first interview to Diane Sawyer on ABC’s 20/20 and was very open about being transgender, his years of struggle and his current transition.
“We’re going to make a difference in the world with what we’re doing,” he said in the interview. “And if the whole Kardashian show and reality television gave me that foothold into that world—to be able to go out there and really do something good, I’m all for it. I got no problem with that.”
Many celebs have shared their support of Jenner since the interview aired via Twitter and Instagram including Jenner’s children, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Laverne Cox, Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Fallon, Ariana Grande, Lena Dunham and Oprah. And while pop star Demi Lovato also tweeted about the interview, saying “#fuckyeahbrucejenner so beyond brave… You’re going to save lives by sharing your story.. God bless you and your heroic soul,” she went one step further by also dedicating a song to Jenner at a concert of hers over the weekend.
At a show in Australia, Lovato called Jenner an “American hero” and added the following:
“I just want to dedicate this song and it’s so cheesy that I’m even doing this, but f–k it whatever. I want to dedicate it to someone who became an even bigger hero last night — Bruce Jenner! By the way, I never thought I’d ever dedicate a song to him. But he was honest and he was open with his story. No matter if you agree with it or not, he probably saved so many lives and educated so many people [about] transitioning into being a woman and being transgender and what’s that’s all about. So, yeah, I just want to dedicate it to Bruce Jenner.”
Amazing! You’re both heroes, Demi and Bruce! Watch the full video of Lovato dedicating her song Warrior to Jenner below.
