Demi Lovato Hints She’ll Address Her Sexuality in Upcoming Documentary
“I’m not confirming and I’m definitely not denying,” she told Alan Carr when he asked her flat out if she is part of the LGBTQ+ community. “All of my songs are based off of personal experiences. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with experimentation at all.”
The 25-year-old singer was recently spotted holding hands with rumored girlfriend Lauren Abedini, which reignited the discussion about her sexual orientation. When Pride Source asked her about the relationship, she once again declined to comment.
She explained, “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. 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. Unfortunately, we live in a world where everyone is trying to get that soundbite and I am purposefully not giving the soundbite. Watch my documentary.”
One journalist called her decision to stay quiet about her sexual orientation “total bullsh*t.”
Expectant and rude. Watch my documentary and chill out.

“Just because I’m refuse [sic] to label myself for the sake of a headline doesn’t mean I’m not going to stand up for what I believe in,” she wrote on Twitter as a response. “If you’re that curious about my sexuality, watch my documentary. But I don’t owe anybody anything.”
DL is referring to her upcoming doc, Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, premiering on YouTube Red on October 12.
We don’t know if Demi is actually going to say, “Hey guys, my sexuality is X,” in the obviously personal documentary, but it sure seems that it will be a topic of discussion.
These former Disney Channel actresses identify as sexually fluid:
She became known for her breakout role as Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana on the popular Disney Channel sitcom, Hannah Montana. Today, Miley Cyrus is an advocate for the LGBTQ community. She's also admitted she's both sexually and gender fluid, having told Paper magazine that she's had relationships with women that have been just as serious as the ones she's had with men.
She also told TIME, "I'm not hiding my sexuality. For me, I don't want to label myself as anything. We love putting people in categories, but what I like sexually isn't going to label me as a person."
