“When did you first realize you were not just heterosexual, you were queer in general?” he asked.
“It was definitely when I was young,” she responded. “I should not have been watching Cruel Intentions, but I did. It was that scene where they made out on the park lawn, and I was just like, ‘Oh, wait a minute. I really like that.'”
In case you were about to look up a video of Kathryn and Cecile’s iconic kiss like I just did, you can watch it here.
“I was like, ‘I wanna try it.’ And then, when I was 17, I did get down with that. And that’s when I knew.”
“I pretty much told all of my friends and my older sister when I was 17,” the singer explained. “They all knew before I brought it to my parents and then the public. Those were my three phases: friends, parents, public.”
“There were times I wrote songs about girls that my fans thought I wrote about guys,” she continued.
“I’m surprised that some of them didn’t figure out that some of the songs were for certain people. I was sharing it with the world, yet I wasn’t being completely obvious with what I was talking about. Music was my safe space.”
Cheers to Demi for being a confident queen!! We love to see it!
