Demi Lovato Hints She Will Address Sexuality in New Documentary
"If I ever I want to talk about it, I want it to be on my own terms," the singer said.
Demi Lovato will not be talking to the press about her sexual orientation, but the "Sorry Not Sorry" singer implies she will touch upon it in her upcoming YouTube documentary series, Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, debuting next month.
"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," Lovato tweeted Wednesday night (Sept. 20). "If you're that curious about my sexuality, watch my documentary. But I don't owe anybody anything."

Lovato, who says her Confident single "Cool for the Summer" was about "bi-curiosity," recently addressed the topic of sexuality -- sort of -- in an interview with LGBT newspaper Between the Lines (with online content published on PrideSource.com). "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," the singer said. "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," she added. She later explained, "Because if ever I want to talk about it, I want it to be on my own terms."
Lovato's documentary will follow the release of her new album Tell Me You Love Me, out on Sept. 29.
