Pop star Demi Lovato has been using dating apps to try and make romantic connections with both men and women.
The Confident hitmaker makes the revelation in her new YouTube documentary, Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, in which she gives fans an up close and personal window into her life both on and off the stage.
Demi has previously refused to label her sexuality, after hinting she may be bi-curious in the lyrics to her 2015 song Cool for the Summer, but in the new film, she admits gender doesn’t matter when she’s looking for love, reports People.com.
“I am open to human connection,” she says, after going public with her use of dating apps.
The 25-year-old has largely been single since ending her months-long romance with mixed martial arts fighter Guilherme Vasconcelos earlier this year, although she was photographed holding hands with Los Angeles-based DJ Lauren Abedini at Disneyland in California last month.
She caused a stir in September when she declined to go into further detail about her sexual preferences, simply telling Pride Source magazine, “I love who I love. I just feel like everyone’s always looking for a headline and they always want their magazine or TV show or whatever to be the one to break what my sexuality is.”
Demi, who has previously dated newly-engaged singer Joe Jonas and actor Wilmer Valderrama, then urged fans to wait to tune into her YouTube film, which will be released Tuesday, to learn more about her personal life.
“Just because I’m refuse to label myself for the sake of a headline doesn’t mean I’m not going to stand up for what I believe in,” she posted on Twitter. “If you’re that curious about my sexuality, watch my documentary. But I don’t owe anybody anything.”
Despite turning to dating apps to find love again, Demi recently admitted she wanted to learn how to “fall in love” with herself before getting into a new relationship.
“I think I found her, and I think I’m still finding her,” she told U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight last week about focusing on her own needs. “And that’s why I’m not diving into anything with anyone. I value my time by myself now, and I value my time with my friends. And I just have learned to really appreciate my me time and getting to know myself and learning to fall in love with myself before I fall in love with anyone else.”
