During a recent episode of Joe Rogan’s podcast, released on Saturday, Lovato delved into her sexuality while expressing her interest in adopting children in the future.
She remarked, “I also don’t know if I’m going to end up with a guy, so I can’t really see myself getting pregnant. I don’t know. I’m so fluid now, and part of the reason why I am so fluid is because I was super closeted off.”
Rogan sought clarification, asking, “You mean like sexually fluid? You like girls, you like boys?” Lovato responded, saying, “Yeah, anything really.”
Rogan inquired further, “What do they call that, pansexual or something like that?” To which Lovato affirmed, “Yeah, pansexual,” thereby confirming her identification.
Continuing, Lovato affirmed her place within the LGBTQ+ community.
“I came across the term ‘alphabet mafia’ when someone referred to the LGBTQIA+ community, and I thought, ‘That’s it, that’s what resonates with me,'” shared Lovato.
She then delved deeper into her personal journey, recounting the challenges of growing up in Texas and the shame she felt regarding her sexual identity. Lovato disclosed experiencing a sexual awakening during a pivotal scene in “Cruel Intentions,” featuring Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair kissing. Despite acknowledging her attraction, she admitted to feeling a significant amount of shame.
“I was like, ‘Oh, I like that,'” Lovato recounted. “But I felt a lot of shame because growing up in Texas as a Christian, that’s very frowned upon. Any attraction I had to a female at a young age, I shut it down before I even let myself process what I was feeling.”
Although Lovato was previously engaged to Max Ehrich, she disclosed in the March issue of Glamour that she now identifies as “too queer” to be in a relationship with a cisgender man.
Her revealing documentary, “Dancing With the Devil,” is currently accessible with three episodes on YouTube. Additionally, Lovato shared exciting news about her upcoming album, “Dancing With the Devil… The Art of Starting Over,” set to be released on April 2. The album boasts collaborations with Ariana Grande, Saweetie, and Noah Cyrus.
