WATCH: Demi Lovato Is a Badass Chick in New ‘Confident’ Video ft. Michelle Rodriguez
Calling all Lovatics!
Unlike Demi’s playful “Cool for the Summer” music video (which had musical undertones of Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” and thematic similarities also to Rebecca Black’s “Friday” and Lady Gaga’s “Edge of Glory” – see here for proof), “Confident” has all the makings of an action movie. Some might be so bold to say it’s like Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood,” in that are the badass protagonists pitted against each other in a sort of dystopian war.
Except “Confident” features a plot twist! Spoiler: instead of Rodriguez and Lovato fighting against each other, in the end, they team up to fight against the man.
Look, we know Swift and Lovato are both self-proclaimed feminists. But we gotta hand it to Lovato for not making her video all about women fighting women, and instead having her leather-clad, motorcycle driving character join forces with her abalicious former foe to take down their common enemy.
