Demi Lovato talks about the 'emotional' moment she came out to her parents
Demi Lovato has opened up and discussed the “beautiful” moment she came forward and told her parents she could see herself “ending up possibly with a woman.”
Speaking on the radio in an interview with Andy Cohen on the Radio Andy SiriusXM show on Thursday, the 27-year-old artist discussed her sexuality, telling the host that she’s “still figuring it out.”
Lovato revealed that she didn’t “officially” tell her parents that she saw herself “ending up possibly with a woman, too, until 2017.”
“It was actually, like emotional, but really beautiful,” Lovato said. “After everything was done I was like shaking and crying and I just felt overwhelmed.”
Lovato expressed how great and supportive her “incredible parents” were in the conversation.
“My dad was like, ‘yeah, obviously,'” she said. “And I was like, ‘oh, okay dad.'”
“My mom was the one that I was like super nervous about, but she was just like, ‘I just want you to be happy,'” Lovato shared. “That was so beautiful and amazing, and like I said, I’m so grateful.”
“I don’t know what my future looks like,” Lovato continued. “I don’t know if I’m going to have kids this year or in 10 years. I don’t know if I’m going to do it with a partner or without.”
Earlier this month, Lovato talked about her desire to have kids “at some point in this decade. She expressed these desires ”In an interview with Zane Lowe on New Music Daily for Apple Music’s Beats 1
“When I think of my future for the decade, I think at some point in this decade I want to start a family. That would be dope,” the “Anyone” crooner said.
“All of this is great and it’s beautiful and I’m lucky and I’m blessed and I’m grateful. But I’ve learned that clearly if all of this made you happy, I wouldn’t have ended up where I did,” she added, referencing her drug overdose in July 2018.
“When I think about what makes me happy today, I think about my family. I think about my friends. I think about my team,” Lovato continued.
“I don’t even know if I see it with a man or a woman, but like I just know that at some point I would love to do that this decade,” she said. “If it doesn’t happen this decade, maybe the next, I don’t know. We’ll see. But I would love to start doing more things that make me happy and worry less about success.”
