We’ve heard from both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris about the storming of the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Trump on Wednesday, but we haven’t heard from singer Demi Lovato. No, wait, actually we have. Lovato proclaimed on Twitter that she was recording “something special” in the aftermath of the rioting.
Demi Lovato Says She's Recording ‘Something Special' After Storming of U.S. Capitol https://t.co/My9bGe6zi1

In a follow-up tweet, the 28-year-old “Cool for the Summer” performer announced that she was currently in a studio and recording some type of commentary on the traumatic day. She did not specify if the music had been written prior to the unrest at the Capitol, nor did she give any further details about what to expect from it, but the posts led her name to start trending on Twitter.
“THIS IS WHY I POST AS MUCH AS I DO,” she continued. “THIS IS WHY I CARE. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN ANY F–KING MORE. I’m angry, embarrassed and ashamed. I’m in the studio working on something special after today’s assault on democracy. #impeachtrumptonight.”
But … every Demi Lovato song is special.
The world holds its breath

Good to see she’s not trying to cash in on a national tragedy.

Is it going to raise funds for the family of the woman who was shot dead by Capitol police? We’re betting it’s not.
should've threatened that 2 days ago and nothing would have happened

"Capitalize before the moment is gone" should be the name of her song. Total Grammy Winner!

If she wants to give the people something special..she could not sing.
That'd be great.
