Demi Lovato has long been coy about her love life, but her willingness to talk about the subject is changing. Some considered her single “Cool For the Summer” to have a bi-curious subtext, but Lovato stated back in September 2017 that she prefers not to discuss her sexuality. It seems, though, that she is now embracing vulnerability on the subject because Lovato just revealed in a new InStyle interview that she’s “fluid” when it comes to her dating preferences and open to finding love with any human.
“I’m very fluid, and I think love is love. You can find it in any gender,” she told the magazine when they asked if she was open to dating women. “I like the freedom of being able to flirt with whoever I want.”
Lovato echoed this sentiment in her documentary Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated back in October 2017 when she cryptically revealed that she was “open to human connection” and didn’t set her dating apps to any gender preference. She also told InStyle that while she’s been famously monogamous for most of her life, she’s embracing being single for the first time ever.
It’s clear she’s found what she wants because she jokes that she’s now the one to make the first move. “I’m always the one who says, ‘Let me get your number.’ Or I slide into their DMs on Instagram.”
Elsewhere in the interview she mentioned that she would entertain the idea of dating another MMA fighter after being briefly linked to Guilherme “Bomba” Vasconcelos, saying that she finds fighters “attractive” for “being so driven and risking it all for something you love.”
We think Lovato will have no problem navigating her future love life — she knows what she wants and clearly isn’t afraid to go after it.
