Singer Demi Lovato announced last weekend that she is “sexually fluid” and “pansexual,” meaning she is attracted to “anything, really.”
Speaking to podcast host Joe Rogan on Saturday, the pop star explained she is “so fluid now” regarding her sexuality, according to Today.

“I’m so fluid now, and a part of the reason why I am so fluid is because I was, like, super closeted off,” Lovato said.
“You mean sexually fluid?” Rogan asked. “You like girls? You like boys?”
“Yeah, anything, really,” Lovato replied.
“What do they call that? Like pansexual or something like that?” Rogan asked.
“Yeah, pansexual,” the singer responded.
Her first twinge of lesbian attraction, Lovato said, came when she saw Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar kiss in the 1999 film “Cruel Intentions.”
“I felt a lot of shame because growing up in Texas as a Christian, that’s very frowned upon,” said Lovato, who broke off her engagement with actor Max Ehrich last year. “Any attraction that I ever had toward a female at a young age, I shut it down before I even let myself process what I was feeling.”
During the interview with Rogan, Lovato also explained what she believes is the importance of speaking her truth when it comes to all aspects of her life. “I’m done living other people’s truths,” she said. “I’m here to tell you that I’m going to live mine no matter what you think of it because it feels right to me.”

Lovato, who has said she is ashamed to be white, made headlines recently for claiming gender reveal parties are transphobic because “there are boys with vaginas and girls with penises.”
As The Daily Wire reported:
In a nine-page Instagram post, singer and songwriter Demi Lovato called gender reveal parties “transphobic” and claimed that “there are boys with vaginas and girls with penises.”
Lovato claimed throughout the lengthy post that transgender activists dislike gender reveal parties because they divert from “reality.” To Lovato and other activists, reality is the concept that humans are born without any concept of gender. Lovato also claimed that basing sex off of genitalia is “inconsistent with science.”
“It’s both insincere and incorrect to pretend that gender reveal parties are not transphobic. You can’t have your proverbial pink-blue binary cake and eat it too. This is not about political correctness, it’s just…correct,” the post reads. “We condemn gender reveals not because of our identity, but because of reality.”
Lovato continued by claiming that “the gender binary,” which claims there are biological girls and boys, fuels transphobia in American life. The post claims that transphobes view “non-trans people” as more “natural” and “organic.”
“Transphobia is not just about prejudice against individual trans people, it’s also a way of thinking that understands non-trans people as more natural/organic and erases everyone else,” the post reads. “These ideas, like the gender binary, fuel mistreatment of all people, but especially trans and gender non-conforming people.”
