Every openly queer person around the world has their own personal coming out stories -- how they first knew they were LGBTQ, how they came out to those around them, and how their lives have changed since. Now, Demi Lovato is ready to share her story with the world.
On Friday (Oct. 9), Lovato hosted Facebook Watch's "Coming Out 2020" stream alongside Queer Eye star Tan France to celebrate Sunday's National Coming Out Day. Throughout the hourlong event, Lovato spoke candidly about her coming-out journey, saying that she intentionally wrote songs about women throughout her musical career, even though her fans didn't necessarily pick up on them.
"There were times where I wrote songs about girls that my fans thought I wrote about a guy," she revealed in her interview, without specifying which songs she meant. "I’m surprised that some of them didn’t figure out that some of the songs were for certain people. I was sharing it with the world, yet I wasn’t being completely obvious with what I was talking about. Music was my safe space.”
