Demi Lovato recently posted some teasers from her upcoming Robert Rodriguez-directed “Confident” music video, which will debut in full Friday.
The singer seems to be imprisoned in one darkly lit teaser, while the other is a bit more lighthearted: Lovato dances with a mob of fans, most of them donning T-shirts that say “CONFIDENT.” The song is the second single released off Confident, out Oct. 16.
Aside from promoting her new music, Lovato’s also kept busy pushing for mental health reform and met with legislators in Washington, D.C. Tuesday to discuss making healthcare more accessible.
“I think it’s important that people no longer look at mental illness as something taboo to talk about,” Lovato, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when she was 19, told People. “The problem with mental illness is people don’t look at it as a physical illness. When you think about it, the brain is actually the most complex organ in your body. We need to treat it like a physical illness and take it seriously.”
