Selena Gomez is proceeding with her upcoming concert in North Carolina.
As some of music's biggest names continue to cancel performances after the state's government passed a controversial bill known as "HB2" or the "bathroom law," the "Come and Get It" singer is explaining why she still wants to perform for fans in the area.
"I am very fortunate to have grown up in a home where I learned from an early age that everyone should be treated equally," Selena said in a statement to E! News. "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 continued, "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."
