Demi Lovato has been identified as a member of the LGBTQ+ community for years.
Now the singer is revealed what 1999 movie made her realize she was queer on Facebook’s ‘Coming Out 2020.’
Her words below:
“It was definitely when I was young and definitely should not have been watching ‘Cruel Intentions’ but did, and it was that scene where they made out on the park lawn. I was just like, ‘Oh wait a minute, I really like that, I want to try it.’ And then when I was 17 I did get down with that.”
The well-known movie moment sees Kathryn (Sarah Michelle Gellar) teach Cecile (Selma Blair) how to kiss.
The Pop singer then went on to reveal how she came out, saying:
“I pretty much told all of my friends and my older sister when I was 17, They all knew before I brought it to my parents and then to the public. Those were my three phases: Friends, parents, public.”
She then went on to discuss how being queer has translated over to her music, saying:
“There were times I wrote songs about girls that my fans thought I wrote about guys. I’m surprised that some of them didn’t figure out that some of the songs were for certain people. I was sharing it with the world, yet I wasn’t being completely obvious with what I was talking about. Music was my safe space.”
The ‘Still Have Me’ singer said that she has no regrets about coming out, saying:
“I identify as queer, and I’m here”
