2016 Billboard Music Awards: Artists Made Bold Statements
Demi Lovato may not be the best dressed artist during the 2016 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night, but what she wore while performing “Cool for Summer” surely has won the hearts of many. Britney Spears on the other hand made sure her appearance will be talked about — coming almost naked.Advertisement
By wearing a simple black T-shirt with an inclusive bathroom symbol, the 23-year-old singer got the respect of the transgender community, including the US-based non-governmental media monitoring organization.
In its blog, GLAAD hailed the “Heart Attack” artist.
“Demi Lovato continues to be a fearless ally for LGBT equality and acceptance,” GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis stated about her outfit at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards. “By wearing her support for the transgender community, Lovato is raising critical visibility for vulnerable LGBT North Carolinians and sending an invaluable message of support to transgender people everywhere.”
According to GLAAD, replica of the said shirt will be sold during the recording artists’ “Honda Civic tour: Future Now” and whatever sales that it will generate will be donated to the LGBT groups in North Carolina, the state which passed an anti-LGBT law earlier this year.
Apart from GLAAD, the former “The X Factor” judge and mentor also got the admiration of more fans, Mic.com reported.
“Shoutout to @ddlovato for making a statement at the #BBMAs with that shirt! (Also, love for giving me chills. damn),” tweeted Olivia Truffaut-Wong (@iWatchiAm) about her 2016 Billboard Music Awards ensemble.
In the meantime, when it comes to how certain artists looked like while attending the prestigious annual award-giving event, here is a short peek.
The 34-year-old “Baby One More Time” singer arrived at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas wearing a black bra paired with skimpy briefs under a sheer cover-up. She then finished her entire look with a pair of over-the-knee fishnet sandals.
