Demi Lovato reveals that she dates “both guys and girls” in new documentary

Demi Lovato has opened up about her love life in a revealing new documentary.

Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated – which is available to stream on YouTube now – sees the star plonked back into the world of dating follow her six-year relationship with Wilmer Valderrama.

Although she might be looking for a new partner in crime on celebrity dating app Raya, she’s not exclusively looking at one gender.

“I am on the dating app with both guys and girls,” she says during the 78-minute film. “I am open to human connection. Whether that’s through a male or a female, it doesn’t matter to me.”

Speculation around Demi Lovato’s sexuality intensified earlier this year when she passed on an opportunity to discuss it during an interview with Pride Source.

The singer also defended criticism from lesbian pop culture website AfterEllen, who claimed that her hit single Cool For The Summer suggested that same-sex intimacy should be secret.

“My intention with the song was just fun and bi-curiosity,” Demi said. “I think people look at song lyrics – they look too into it.

“I wish I could tell that website to ‘chill the fuck out’ and ‘take a break,’ because it’s just a song.

“I think we live in a world today where no matter what you do, you’re doing something wrong, whether it’s cultural appropriation or it’s being insensitive to certain groups of people.

“We just live in that age where everything we do is wrong and, unfortunately, everyone’s looking for a reason to have their voices heard, and sometimes it’s not always in the most positive way.”

Demi Lovato’s new documentary has been released alongside her brilliant new album Tell Me You Love Me. You should definitely check both out.
