Demi Lovato Refuses To Label Her Sexuality: “I Love Who I Love”

“I feel like it’s irrelevant to what my music is all about."

After declaring, “I love who I love,” Demi Lovato declined to further define her sexuality in a new interview with Pride Source.

When asked if she’d like to speak directly about her sexuality, the pop singer replied, “Thank you for the opportunity, but I think I’m gonna pass.”

“I just feel like everyone’s always looking for a headline and they always want their magazine or TV show or whatever to be the one to break what my sexuality is,” Lovato continued. “Unfortunately, we live in a world where everyone is trying to get that soundbite and I am purposefully not giving the soundbite.”

“I feel like it’s irrelevant to what my music is all about. I stand up for the things that I believe in and the things that I’m passionate about, but I like to keep my personal life as private as possible when it comes to dating and sexuality and all that stuff just because it has nothing to do with my music.”

Lovato did confirm that some questions regarding her sexuality would be addressed in her new YouTube documentary, Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, out October 12. “Because if ever I want to talk about it, I want it to be on my own terms,” she said.

Rumors about Lovato’s sexuality swirled on social media last week after she was spotted holding hands with DJ and producer Lauren Abedini at Disneyland.

The singer seemed to be hinting at her bisexuality when discussing real-life inspiration for her bicurious anthem “Cool for the Summer” during a 2015 interview on Alan Carr’s Chatty Man.

“I am not confirming, and I’m definitely not denying,” she said at the time. “All of my songs are based off of personal experiences. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with experimentation at all.”

A vocal LGBT ally, Lovato revealed that she had a gay grandfather at Logo’s inaugural Trailblazers Honors in 2014.

Lovato accepted the Vanguard Award at last year’s 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, where she joked that she had “a bigger dick” than Nick Jonas.

Lovato’s sixth studio album, Tell Me You Love Me, is out September 29.
