Demi Lovato Confirms Her Sexuality In ‘Simply Complicated’ Documentary

Since its debut earlier this month, Demi Lovato’s YouTube documentary Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated has generated over 7 million views across 195 countries.

In the documentary, Lovato is open about some intimate details and experiences of her life, including her history of addiction, bipolar disorder, and self harm. The singer has been clean for the last five years.

However, one aspect of the singer’s personal life that has suffered from severe scrutiny over the years is her sexuality.

Much of the speculation dates back to that steamy Cool For the Summer release. Certain lyrics — allusions to her being “curious,” and “tasting the cherry,” and being taken “down into paradise” — had many wondering if she was singing about sexual experiences with women rather than men.

At the time, Lovato played coy about her sexuality.  In a September 2015 interview with Alan Carr, she was asked about the lesbian insinuations of the song. Her reply was vague.

“I’m not confirming and I’m definitely not denying. All of my songs are based off of personal experiences. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with experimentation at all.”

A year later, the singer was asked about her sexuality again, this time in an issue of People.

It’s something I don’t think needs to have a label. As humans, it’s just about a connection with someone.”

However, now she’s decided to acknowledge her love for both men and women on her own terms.

In the documentary, she explains:

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, it doesn’t matter to me.”

Last month, when asked about her sexuality, the singer took to Twitter to clear the air, tweeting: “Just because I’m refuse to label myself for the sake of a headline doesn’t mean I’m not going to stand up for what I believe in.”

The inquiry came on the heels of Lovato spotted holding hands with DJ Lauren Abedini at Disneyland. 

She later told Pride Source magazine,

Demi Lovato Is Rumoured To Be Dating A Woman (And Twitter Is Losing Its Mind)

According to a recent twitter post by @Caroly6574, Demi Lovato was seen holding hands with a gorgeous brunette on an innocent trip to Disneyland in L.A.

However, the hand holding raised plenty eyebrows on social media, because the mystery brunette Lovato was spotted cozying up to is a lesbian, Lauren Abedini.

According to the pictures snapped by the superfan, the two ladies weren’t “holding hands” in a “bestie” way, they’re definitely holding hands in a girlfriend way.

Back in 2015, many wondered whether Lovato ‘s song Cool for the Summer was a hint at her sexuality, with lyrics like

Don’t be scared cause I’m your body type/ Just something that we wanna try.”

Then, in an interview with comedian Alan Carr after the song came out, Lovato said all her songs are based on personal experiences, leading fans to wonder if Lovato was saying she has experimented with the same sex.

I’m not confirming, and I’m definitely not denying. All of my songs are based off of personal experiences. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with experimentation at all.”

Twitter has been pretty excited over the prospect of Lovato being in a new relationship.

Of course, nothing is confirmed, and it’s important not to speculate about Lovato’s love life. It’s also important to remember that Lovato doesn’t owe anyone an explanation about who she is or is not dating.

Lovato should feel free to do whatever she wants with whoever she wants without the pressure of explaining it.

Whether or not Lovato is dating Lauren, we’re just glad to see she’s having a good time at Disney.

In her acceptance speech for Sense8, Wachowski thanked the “fabulous people at GLAAD” and then added a jab at the reporter who attempted to force her outing:

Love is a crucial thing for transgender people. It’s a tether. When faced with a rather simple proposition of whether you’re unlovable, our imagination falters. Too many of us end up on the wrong side of the existential question of love or oblivion. And so we ring that bell. Not just for everyone else’s sake, but our own.”

Tony Hawk Joins HRC’s Americans for Marriage Equality

Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has released another video ad featuring professional skateboarder and CEO Tony Hawk. This is the third video released for the re-launch of HRC’s Americans for Marriage Equality video campaign. Susan Sarandon and Demi Lovato have already shown their support for marriage equality through video ads.

“Like most Americans, Tony Hawk knows that all families deserve to be treated with respect, dignity, and equality under the law. We are incredibly grateful to Tony for speaking out in favor of marriage equality, and lending his voice to HRC’s fight for fairness nationwide.”

Charles Joughin, HRC

Hawk is one of the worlds most recognised action-sports figure. He regularly appears on television and in films, hosts a weekly show on the Sirius XM satellite radio network, and frequently takes his talent on the road with the Birdhouse Skateboards team.

Tony’s success and good fortune have inspired him to do what he can to help young people, so in 2002 he launched the Tony Hawk Foundation to help achieve that goal.

“We all deserve to follow our hearts, and we need to continue working until every state recognizes marriage as an equal right”

Tony Hawk

Same-sex couples can legally marry in nineteen states and the District of Columbia, while 31 states have a law or constitutional amendment restricting marriage to the union of one man and one woman. However, polling continues to show Americans moving inexorably in the direction of supporting equality for same-sex couples, and there are over 70 court cases across the country challenging bans on marriage equality.

Demi Lovato Promote’s Equal Marriage with HRC

HRC have officially re-launched their successful video campaign – Americans for Marriage Equality. The first first features Demi Lovato.

In the video, Lovato makes the case for marriage equality, saying,

“Let’s protect love and strengthen the institution of marriage by allowing loving, caring and committed same-sex couples to legally marry.”

Demi Lovato

The video is part of the HRC’s public engagement campaign featuring prominent Americans who support committed gay and lesbian couples getting married. Demi also penned an email to HRC’s more than 1.5 million members and supporters, calling on all Americans to get involved in the fight for marriage equality nationwide.

Platinum-selling recording artist and actress, Demi Lovato, recently lent her voice to the LGBT community, by being named Grand Marshal of the 44th annual Los Angeles Pride parade and headline performing at NYC Pride’s Dance on the Pier. Her performance at LA Pride served as the backdrop for her new music video and LGBT anthem, “Really Don’t Care.” With a fan base that includes over 20 million die-hard Twitter followers and 30 million fans on Facebook, her latest album, Demi, hit #1 on iTunes in 50 countries and the lead single—”Heart Attack”— earned Platinum status just 10 weeks after launch.

As one of the LGBT community’s most vocal allies, Demi has made anti-bullying advocacy a cornerstone of her public life, impacting countless young people around the world – including the youth in the LGBT community who view her as a role-model when it comes to being true to yourself. At a time where 92 percent of adolescents are constantly being exposed to negative messages about being LGBT, Demi provides an incredible stance on positivity and love.
