Demi Lovato is not interested in labeling her sexuality for a headline.

In recent weeks, the singer’s sexual identity has been in question on social media after she was seen holding hands with producer Lauren Abedini at Disneyland earlier this month. The singer has yet to open up about any relationship she might be in, and faced backlash on her silence on the matter Wednesday afternoon.

This Tweet caught the singer’s attention, criticising her for refusing to open up about her sexual orientation linked to a more in-depth article from The Huffington Post. 

In a direct response, Lovato Tweeted, “Expectant and rude. Watch my documentary and chill out.” The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer followed up on Twitter making the point that her sexuality is up to her to reveal — and she’s definitely not sorry about that.

The documentary Lovato hinted at will be an upcoming YouTube series titled, Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated premiering on Oct. 12. As for why the singer is choosing not to discuss her sexuality, she had this to say:

“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,” Lovato said. “I feel like it’s irrelevant to what my music is all about. I stand up for the things that I believe in and the things that I’m passionate about, but I like to keep my personal life as private as possible when it comes to dating and sexuality and all that stuff just because it has nothing to do with my music. Unfortunately, we live in a world where everyone is trying to get that soundbite and I am purposefully not giving the soundbite.”

Lovato added that all of her songs are about her own personal experiences and that there is nothing wrong with experimentation. But at least for now, she will neither confirm nor deny anything on the matter.
