Demi Lovato is not one to slap labels on her sexuality. She has outwardly spoken about it in many interviews and in her YouTube documentary, Simply Complicated.
She told PrideSource that her song “Cool for the Summer” was about “bi-curiosity” but that doesn’t comment on her own sexuality. It’s something that she has said she keeps private to herself but has alluded that she is interested in both men and women in her documentary.
“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 told PrideSource September 2017.
We totally get that, because when she does comment on her sexuality it get’s written about, like right now. Lovato was asked about her sexuality and actually commented on it which is very unlike her.
“I’m very fluid, and I think love is love,” Lovato told InStyle. “You can find it in any gender. I like the freedom of being able to flirt with whoever I want.”
Lovato didn’t label her sexuality, and we won’t do it for her. For someone who isn’t well versed in different types of sexualities the word fluid may be confusing. Being fluid within your sexuality means your sexual preferences can’t be pinned down to a “type.”
Sometimes people equate sexual fluidity with being pansexual.
Someone who is pansexual has a romantic, physical or emotional attraction to any person regardless of that person’s gender. We are not saying Lovato is pansexual, she’s fluid! We are just clarifying that there is a whole spectrum of sexual identities out there.
Even though Lovato won’t slap a label on herself that doesn’t mean she is any less of an ally or part of the LGBT+ community. If anything Lovato is vocal about topics that aren’t typically discussed like mental health.
