"All of my songs are based off of personal experiences," the singer says in a new interview
Demi Lovato shared her thoughts on sexuality during a cheeky appearance on England’s Alan Carr: Chatty Man show on Friday, hinting at past experimentation with women.
It all started when Carr read lyrics from her racy hit “Cool for the Summer,” which got an equally racy performance at the MTV VMAs in August. The comedian flat-out asked if the song was about “lesbianism,” giving Lovato a good laugh.
“I am not confirming and I’m definitely not denying,” said the 23-year-old singer, who has been candid about her love for boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama. “All of my songs are based off of personal experiences. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with experimentation at all.”
“No. The trouble is I experimented once and it stuck,” joked Carr, who is gay.
Lovato was quick to respond, saying, “Hey, I didn’t say that it didn’t stick either. I didn’t say that it didn’t stick.”
The conversation turned to the cover of Lovato’s new album Confident, due Oct. 16, which puts her famous physique on display. As it turns out, the former Disney star experienced a wardrobe malfunction at the photo shoot.
“Those underpants are actually like lingerie bottoms, and so they were a bit see-through and it was a little scandalous,” she said. “Let’s just say it wasn’t the most comfortable experience picking out your album cover with your manager.”
After the hilarious chat, Lovato took center stage to perform “Cool for the Summer.”
