Yah, that really is 2012 Video Music Award nominated songstress Demi Lovato with a leopard. The "X-Factor" judge took time off from being berated by Simon Cowell on their audition tour to get all political on us! Which is why she posed with a leopard...
With the election fast upon us (less than 100 days to go!) the former Disney starlet teamed up with Voto Latino to film an upcoming PSA! Voto Latino was co-founded by actress Rosario Dawson in 2004 to ignite engagement among the young Latino voters. We spoke to Voto Latino about the PSA -- called "The Enforcers" -- and includes an all-star line up including Maria Menounos, Miami Housewife Lea Black, Columbus Short, and Rob Hoffman, among others.
Maria Teresa Kumar, Voto Latino's CEO/President, told us in an emailed statement: "The Enforcers uses parody to grab our audience attention on the importance of voting. However, the cast and breath of talent is no joke. Each actor and artist volunteered their time and talent to get American Latinos to participate at the polls this election because our future is at stake. Our power is in our numbers."
The PSA was directed by the one, the only, the dreamy Wilmer Valderrama, who took to Twitter to express his gratitude:
Thank you mi dios, cause the last two days you blessed me w/ an amazing crew & INCREDIBLE friends who came to support me..— Wilmer Valderrama (@WValderrama) July 30, 2012
