Last week Twitter had a full-on meltdown when Demi Lovato was spotted holding hands with a woman, DJ-producer Lauren Abedini, in Disneyland. With Lovato’s relationship with UFC fighter Luke Rockhold newly finished, many people think Abedini is her new girlfriend—but that’s only speculation at this point. Lovato hasn’t said anything about Abedini or her specific sexuality—she’s only spoken in generalities—and that’s intentional.
In a new interview with Pride Source, the “Body Say” singer explains why she prefers to keep her sexuality private despite being such an advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community.
“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 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.”
