Demi Lovato Opens Up About Dating Girls and “Fluid” Sexuality

By  | 

The conversation about Demi Lovato‘s sexuality is one people have been having for years. After the “Tell Me You Love Me” singer was spotted holding hands with rumored flame Lauren “KITTENS” Abedini back in September, the talk only heated up.

The 25-year-old finally addressed the speculation in her documentary, Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, saying, “I am open to human connection, so whether that’s through a male or female, it doesn’t matter to me.”

Now, DL is opening up further about being sexually “fluid.”

“I’m very fluid, and I think love is love,” she tells InStyle magazine. “You can find it in any gender. I like the freedom of being able to flirt with whoever I want.”

This openness is a far departure of how Demi used to to speak about her sexual orientation. She received flak for refusing to give a straight answer when Pride Source asked her about it directly in September 2017, shortly after she was seen holding hands with a girl.

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.”

Now, the brunette beauty is content with herself, her sexuality and being single, which is something that’s pretty new to her seeing as she was in a relationship with Wilmer Valderrama for six years.

“I’m not suffering because I’m alone,” she says. “There were many years I was in a relationship and I wasn’t learning about myself. Now I’m learning about what I like, what I need, and what I want.”
