Demi Lovato is finally addressing all those bisexual rumors that have flown since the release of her new single "Cool for the Summer." In a new interview with Alan Carr ahead of the release of her latest album Confident, the 23-year-old pop star hinted that the song's experimental lyrics come from her real life, and she's not denying anything.
"Cool for the Summer" barely glosses over the fact that its about a same sex summer fling. With lyrics such as "Take me down into your paradise / Don't be scared 'cause I'm your body type," "Got a taste for the cherry / I just need to take a bite" and "Tell me what you want, what you like, it's OK / I'm a little curious, too," there's little room for interpretation. When Carr asked her whether or not the song is about her own lesbianism, Lovato remained coy.
"I'm not confirming and I'm definitely not denying," she said. "All of my songs are based off of personal experiences. I don't think there's anything wrong with experimentation at all."
Carr, who is openly gay, said that his experimentation "stuck," to which Lovato riffed: "Hey, I didn't say it didn't stick either."
Despite her inclinations toward being attracted to both sexes, Lovato has been in a relationship with actor Wilmer Valderrama for four years.
Lovato then ended up her stint on the show by performing the song in question.
"Cool for the Summer" is Lovato's latest single and leads her new album Confident. Confident is due to hit stores on Oct. 16.
