While her performance drew bemused reactions online, a representative for Lovato told Entertainment Weekly, "She spoke on the mind-heart connection. It was a sensitive moment intended to champion the women in the room — the very reason why Demi was at the event."
"She did open with a beautiful intro on why she chose the song and addressed the room, talking about the mind and heart connection. It was actually a beautiful moment," the rep added.
Lovato, who once had a heart attack herself, opened up about the experience in her 2021 docu-series Dancing With the Devil.
"I had three strokes. I had a heart attack. I suffered brain damage from the strokes. I can't drive anymore. And I have blind spots in my vision so sometimes when I go to pour a glass of water, I'll totally miss the cup because I can't see it," Lovato said in the series.
"I also had pneumonia because I asphyxiated and had multiple organ failure...I'm really lucky to be alive. My doctors said that, like, I had five to 10 more minutes. And had my assistant not come in, I wouldn't be here today," the singer added.
"Heart Attack" was a top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It has been certified 5x Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
