Demi also sat down to chat a bit about her new music, her Grammy nomination and how she re-connected with her music after feeling like she had lost touch with it.
‘I think we live in a world today where no matter what you do, you’re doing something wrong, whether it’s cultural appropriation or it’s being insensitive to certain groups of people.
And talk about important influences – the star opened up about when she was first aware of her LGBT following, at the age of 15, after releasing the song “This Is Me” from her 2008 film, Camp Rock.
In an interview with Pride Source published Friday, Lovato, 25, was asked about her song Cool for the Summer, which became an anthem for the LGBT community, and whether its message was that same-sex intimacy has to be a secret.
“I feel like it’s irrelevant to what my music is all about”, she continued.
“I answer a lot of questions in my documentary”, Demi said, explaining that some of them are about her sexuality.
Lovato hasn’t said anything about Abedini or her specific sexuality-she’s only spoken in generalities-and that’s intentional.
Demi Lovato’s sexuality has made headlines many times before and she is now opening up about why she doesn’t want to talk about it in public. “I think people look at song lyrics – they look too into it”. In case you’re wondering, it’ll go through her life in and out of the music studio.
She said that the way the media covers her is a factor, too.
Yup, Lovato mentioned her documentary, which we ~cannot wait~ to see.
Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated comes out on Youtuber 12 October.
She faced criticism, in particular from openly bisexual singer Halsey, for using the narrative of bisexuality as a taboo to sell records.
A year ago she told People magazine, “It’s something I don’t think needs to have a label: As humans, It’s just about a connection with someone”. So mark your calendars.
