Selena Gomez has confirmed that she won't be canceling her North Carolina concert.
The "Hands To Myself" singer explained in a statement to E! News that, despite her disagreement with the state's controversial anti-LGBT bill, HB2, she thinks performing on Tuesday is the right thing for her to do.
"I am very fortunate to have grown up in a home where I learned from an early age that everyone should be treated equally," Gomez said. "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."
She added, "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."
“Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry — which is happening as I write — is one of them,” Springsteen wrote in a statement after announcing his decision to cancel a show in April.
Gomez's fellow Disney alums, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas, also decided to scrap their North Carolina concert in response to HB2. In a statement, the duo called the law "disappointing" but assured fans "we will not allow this to stop us from continuing to make progress for equality and acceptance."
