Demi Lovato Recalls Coming Out to Her Parents

Demi Lovato shares her beautiful coming-out story on SiriusXM’s “Radio Andy.”

In an interview with host Andy Cohen, the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer — who identifies as sexually fluid — elaborated on the possibility of her starting a family with either a man or woman.

"I'm still figuring it out," the 27-year-old said.

The songstress then revealed how she told her parents about her sexuality.

"I didn't officially tell my parents that I saw myself ending up possibly with a woman until 2017," the musician confessed, adding, "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."

While Lovato said her dad knew — referencing her 2015 song “Cool for the Summer” which many believe is about a same-sex hookup — she wasn’t sure how her mom would react.

"My mom was the one that I was super nervous about, but she was like, ‘I just want you to be happy.' And that was so beautiful and amazing. I'm so grateful," the former Disney star exclaimed.

When it comes to her future, Demi is keeping an open mind.

"I don't know what my future looks like. I don't know if I'm going to have kids this year or in 10 years. I don't know if I'm gonna do it with a partner or without, because women don't need partners. Amen!"

She previously opened up about her sexuality to InStyle, telling the publication in March 2018, “I'm very fluid, and I think love is love. You can find it in any gender. I like the freedom of being able to flirt with whoever I want."

Last Sunday at the 2020 Grammy Awards, Lovato got choked up and had to restart her emotional performance of “Anyone.” However, she ended up nailing her vocals and received a standing ovation from the audience.

On Sunday, she is set to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl LIV Sunday in Miami.
