For those of you who never had the good fortune of sitting through "Gender and Sexuality" course in college, don't fret, today is the perfect opportunity to learn a thing or two. The best part? We'll be using the lovely Miss Demi Lovato as our prime example. See, in a recent interview with InStyle, the 25-year-old powerhouse explained that she identifies as "sexually fluid".
Even if you're fully immersed in 2018 dating culture, we recognize that not everyone understands what sexual fluidity means. The good news is, it's not all that complicated. Sexuality isn't as black and white as people tend to perceive. There's a scale, if you will — that ranges from heterosexual to homosexual. For many people, women in particular, they tend to fall somewhere in-between.
In recent years, Lovato has been very forthcoming with fans. Most notably, opening up about her struggles with an eating disorder and drug addiction in her YouTube documentary, Simply Complicated. Her sexuality is no exception to that openness, Lovato explained in her interview:
"I'm very fluid, and I think love is love. You can find it in any gender. I like the freedom of being able to flirt with whoever I want."
We're going to go ahead and commend Demi for being so transparent. She's one of the few celebrities in Hollywood who remains entirely transparent. It's no wonder that her "Lovatics" — what her fandom calls themselves — find her so relatable. We also can't help but be perfectly smitten with her flirting methods. Demi explained, "I'm normally the first one to make the move. I'm always the one who says, 'Let me get your number.' Or I slide into their DMs on Instagram."
