Amber Heard, Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato is one of Hollywood's biggest supporter of gay rights.

So much so that she served as grand marshal of L.A. Pride on June 8 and will perform at this weekend's LGBT festivities in New York City.

So when I caught up with Lovato this morning for a little chat, I had to ask who her celebrity girl crush was.

"I love Amber Heard," the "Really Don't Care" singer said. "She's so gorgeous, it's ridiculous."

Ain't that the truth!

Earlier this week, Lovato revealed at Logo TV's Trailblazers event that her late grandfather was gay and came out in the 1960s.

Lovato never met her grandfather because he passed away long before she was born, but she told me she always heard about him and his coming out. "It makes so much sense as to why I feel so connected to standing up for what I believe in," she said. "When I heard the word 'trailblazer,' I automatically thought of my grandfather and him coming out in the '60s. It's very powerful. I couldn't be more proud of him."

She's also set to release the video for her single "Really Don't Care" tomorrow night. She shot the vid at L.A. Pride.

"When I originally wrote it, it was a breakup song," Lovato said (earlier today, E! News premiered a teaser for the video). "But now I have sung it so many times that it kind of no longer has a significance in that sort of way. When I sing it, I always want to inspire and empower. I thought what other people could relate to really not caring what people think. I thought of bullies and the LGBT community who are constantly scrutinized. What better place is there than L.A. Pride to celebrate who you are and not really caring what people think?"
