Demi Lovato Says She Will Not Discuss Her Sexuality For This Powerful Reason
When you’re in the spotlight, people want to know everything about you. And really, that means everything. Of course, that doesn’t mean a celebrity has to offer up details of every aspect of their life, and Demi Lovato is making that abundantly clear.
Demi is speaking out after she was recently photographed holding hands with another woman at Disneyland. Some fans called her out for not being “open” about her sexuality, including one who wrote “I love Demi Lovato, but her reason for refusing to talk about her sexuality is total bull—,” on Twitter.

Demi decided to respond to that one. “Expectant and rude,” she wrote. “Watch my documentary and chill out.” Demi was referring to her YouTube documentary series, Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, which Billboard says will debut on Oct. 12.
Demi didn’t stop there. “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,” she wrote on Twitter. “If you're that curious about my sexuality, watch my documentary. But I don't owe anybody anything.”

Demi has side-stepped questions about her sexuality in the past. She simply told Pride Source last week, “I love who I love.” When she was pressed to reveal more, she said, “Thank you for the opportunity, but I think I’m gonna pass.” And then she said, this: “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.” (Add something extra to your sex life—no matter what your sexuality—with the Nu Sensuelle Pearl Vibrator from the Women's Health Boutique.)

Demi’s right: She doesn’t have to say a damn thing about her sexuality. Sexuality is personal and sexual labels are complicated and individual. What one label may mean to one person may mean something entirely different to someone else. And again, it’s no one’s business but Demi’s. Still, if you're curious, check out her documentary on Oct. 12.
