Demi Lovato Opens Up About Coming Out to Her Parents

Demi Lovato is getting even more personal with us in 2020.

Hot off the heels of her comeback song, “Anyone,” which she performed beautifully at the 2020 Grammy Awards, the singer-songwriter is opening up about a special moment in her life. The 27-year-old “Cool for the Summer” singer is openly bisexual (much of “Cool for the Summer” reveals this), and she revealed that she only came out to her parents when she was in a serious relationship with another woman.

On the Radio Andy show, hosted by Andy Cohen, Lovato revealed, “I’m still figuring [my sexuality] out. I didn’t officially tell my parents that I saw myself ending up possibly with a woman until 2017. It was actually emotional but really beautiful. After everything was done, I was like shaking and crying. I just felt overwhelmed. I have such incredible parents. They were so supportive.”

She further added that while the experience was great, one of her parents was not surprised by the news!

“My dad was like, ‘Yeah, obviously.’ He said like, “Hello, ‘Cool for the Summer.'” But my mom was the one that I was super nervous about,” she revealed. “But she was like, ‘I just want you to be happy.’ And that was so beautiful and amazing. I’m so grateful.”

The “Tell Me You Love Me” singer also opened up about her possible future and desire to have kids someday.

“I don’t know what my future looks like. I don’t know if I’m gonna have kids this year or in 10 years. I don’t know if I’m gonna do it with a partner or without. ‘Cause, women, we don’t need partners to…you know? Amen!”

Lovato has had a big month after being out of the spotlight for a while. Her Grammys performance of her new single, “Anyone,” is the first time she has performed and released a song since her overdose. She also performed the National Anthem at Superbowl LIV yesterday.
