Like many young queer people before her, Demi Lovato came to a personal insight into her sexuality while watching a movie - especially Cruel Intentions. As part of Facebook's Coming Out 2020 event on Friday, Demi sat down with Queer Eye's Tan France to discuss her coming out journey. "It was definitely when I was young and I shouldn't have seen Cruel Intentions, but I did and it was that scene where they made out on the park lawn. I was like, 'Oh, wait - I really like this, I want to try, "Demi said to Tan. "When I was 17, I finished with it and that's when I knew it."
Demi previously described her sexuality as "flowing" and that she had no need for a label. "I told all my friends and my older sister when I was 17," she said. "They all knew before I took it to my parents and then to the public. Those were my three phases: friends, parents, public." She added that some of her romantic songs, which fans assumed were written for boys, were actually written for girls. "I'm surprised some of them haven't figured out that some of the songs are for certain people. I shared them with the world, but I wasn't very obvious with what I was talking about. Music was my safe space."
