Demi Levato calls Bruce Jenner 'an American hero' in her concert in New Zealand on April 24
Following his much-watched interview with Diane Sawyer on Friday, April 24, in which he opened up about being a transgender woman, Bruce seems to be getting a lot of support from fans and celebrities, latest being Demi!
The 22-year-old told her crowd Bruce is 'an American hero' before speaking out about her own issues dealing with being famous.
"All of a sudden this fame thing starts taking over and people know your name and boom, you're in rehab -- well, not everybody," she joked. "And then you're in headlines and then people know your problems now. And what's incredible is an American hero, and an Olympian ... to be honest I didn't know who he was until Keeping up With the Kardashians ... I just want to dedicate this song and it's so cheesy that I'm even doing this, but f**k it, whatever."
"By the way, I never thought I'd ever dedicate a song to him," she added. "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 that's all about. ... By the way, he looked fabulous. I could totally picture him with a martini glass, whipping his hair back and forth."
