Demi Lovato Hints At Bisexuality In Her Latest Single ‘Cool For The Summer’
Demi Lovato appeared on the British talk show Alan Carr to promote her latest single, Cool For The Summer, and in doing so, dropped some not-so-subtle hints about her sexuality.
Carr teased the former Disney star about some of the song’s suggestive lyrics, including the line: “Got a taste for the cherry, I just need to take a bite.”
He then asked if the song was about “lesbianism”.
The 23-year-old pop star responded : “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.”
Carr, who is openly gay, joked: “The trouble is I experimented once and it stuck”, to which Lovato replied, “Hey, I didn’t say it didn’t stick either.”
The star noted how the lyrics would have been received differently if they had been performed by a male artist.
“If a guy sang this song who was straight, it would be such an uproar.
“But the thing is, there’s a confidence to a man that would say, ‘I’ve experimented with a man’ and not care.
“I actually find that more attractive than somebody saying, ‘no, no, no, that’s so wrong’.”
During the interview Lovato also discussed the racy cover art for her new album, Confident, which is set to be released in October.
The photo features Lovato in a pair of black lingerie bottoms, which the singer said had to be airbrushed because they were see-through.
“It was a little scandalous. Let’s just say it wasn’t the most comfortable experience picking out the album cover with your manager.”
