Demi Lovato made it clear on Twitter today she doesn't owe anyone an explanation about her sexual preferences.
Lovato's sexuality became a point of speculation when she released her hit, "Cool for the Summer" in 2015, which many thought alluded to Lovato's desire to hook up with a woman. Since then, she has declined to comment on her preferences, and apparently, that has made some people... upset.
I love Demi Lovato, but her reason for refusing to talk about her sexuality is total bullshit. Here's why: https://t.co/yhnGznv7jt— noah michelson (@noahmichelson) September 20, 2017
Lovato was quick to clap back at the article and writer Noah Michelson, who serves as an executive editor for HuffPost Queer.
Expectant and rude. Watch my documentary and chill out.— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) September 20, 2017
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.— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) September 20, 2017
If you're that curious about my sexuality, watch my documentary. But I don't owe anybody anything.— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) September 20, 2017
Lovato expanded on her thoughts on keeping her sexuality to herself in a recent interview with PrideSource. "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," Lovato explained. "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."
Fans were quick to offer their support to Lovato.
