Demi Lovato is not backing down from talking politics — and she's applauding Taylor Swift for doing the same.

Lovato, who released a new political anthem, "Commander in Chief," on Wednesday, spoke about Swift's political activism in a new interview with CNN, one week after the "Lover" singer endorsed Joe Biden ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

"For years she got trashed because she wasn't taking a stance and wasn't standing up for these rights and she kind of took a back seat.

Last week, Swift, 30 announced she would be supporting Biden, 77, and his running mate Kamala Harris in the upcoming election, marking her first public endorsement of a presidential candidate.
