On the latest episode of Lovato's podcast 4D With Demi Lovato, the singer chatted with Siwa about growing up in the public eye, her experience with fame, and her recent coming out. Siwa, in describing her own journey toward publicly identifying with the community, also shared a few moments in pop culture she said helped "awaken" her sexuality.
"I've been figuring out my gay awakenings recently. I think I realized that my very first gay awakening was Jenna Dewan's performance on Lip Sync Battle," Siwa said, referring to the dancer's interpretation of "Pony" by Ginuwine on the show, before telling Lovato of another example that they actually had a hand in. "I think that was one of them. But do you remember your dancer, her name is JoJo Gomez, and you did 'Cool for the Summer' together? I remember seeing that and just being a little too interested."
