Demi Lovato Confirms That She’s Into Dating Girls in New Documentary
She believes that love has no gender
Struggling to Cope
Demi Lovato released her first documentary called Stay Strong in 2012. The film focused on her life post-rehab for drugs and an eating disorder, but it turns out she wasn’t clean during the making of the documentary. She started taking drugs when she was Disney star because she had issues coping with being regarded as a teen role model.
She said, “I wasn’t working my program. I wasn’t ready to get sober. I was sneaking [drugs] on planes, sneaking it in bathrooms, sneaking it throughout the night. Nobody knew.” Demi is now clean and sober, and wants her fans to see her in a new light.
Demi’s new documentary focuses on the making of her most recent album Tell Me You Love Me — and it turns out she’s looking for someone to love right now. Demi had a long romance with actor Wilmer Valderrama, but it became clear that things weren’t going to work out for them long term. They broke up in June 2016.
Demi opens up about her relationship with Valderrama in the new documentary:
“I’ve never loved anybody like I’ve loved Wilmer. And like I still love Wilmer. When I met him and I laid eyes on him for the first time, I was in hair and makeup and I was like, ‘I love his man and I have to have him.’ But I was only 17 so he was like, ‘Get away from me.’ After I turned 18, we began dating and I think it was love at first sight. I don’t really believe in that, but I believe that it happened. We connected on a level that I’ve never connected with anybody before. He was just my rock, my everything.”
She hasn’t been firmly linked to anyone since her split from the That ’70s Show star, but she has stirred up rumors about her sexuality in that time thanks to the release of “Cool For The Summer.” The instate hit dominated the charts after its release thanks to its awesome hook, but that isn’t the only thing fans were talking about! The song seemed to be about exploring same-sex relationships, a fact that Demi’s fans were excited to learn.
Demi later confirmed this interpretation. “My intention with the song was just fun and bi-curiosity. I think people look at the song lyrics – they look too into it,” she said.
Now, the star is opening up about her sexuality even further. She’s been spotted out and about with another woman who fans think she might be seeing. She also revealed in her documentary:
“I am on a dating app with both guys and girls. I am open to human connection, so whether that’s through a male or a female, that doesn’t matter to me. I love who I love. I feel like it’s irrelevant to what my music is all about. I stand up for the thing 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.”
