Selena practised what she preached recently, donating all proceeds from her North Carolina concert to a local LGBT charity after the controversial "Bathroom Bill" was passed there, banning transgender people from using restrooms that don't correspond to their birth gender.
Gomez told Billboard:
Selena Gomez readies her fourth music video from Revival.She might be touring the world and working on a new album already, but somehow Selena Gomez has also had time to shoot another video, this time for positivity anthem 'Kill Em With Kindness". The 23-year-old opted out of fan-favorites "Me & My Girls" or "Sober," instead releasing the breathy mid-tempo tune about playing nice nice. Gomez shared several teasers of the video leading up to the official release. Watch the new Revival cut below:
"I am very fortunate to have grown up in a home where I learned from an early age that everyone should be treated equally. I went back and forth on whether I should cancel my concert in North Carolina and ultimately I think what is right for me is to move forward with my show and donate a portion of the proceeds to Equality North Carolina and their effort to defeat this act of discrimination. I’ve been reassured the venue I will be performing in has gender neutral bathrooms as I want everyone coming to my show to be welcomed. I feel like my generation is the most progressive one yet and believe there will be a day soon when laws like HB2 won’t even be a consideration."
