Demi Lovato Reveals When She First Knew She Was Queer (Exclusive)
Watching an iconic scene in Cruel Intentions taught Demi Lovato a lot about herself. The former Disney star hosts Facebook Watch’s upcoming special, Coming Out 2020, and in ET’s exclusive clip, she tells co-host Tan France about the moment she knew she was queer.
“It was definitely when I was young and should not have been watching Cruel Intentions but I did, and it was that scene where they made out on the park lawn,” Lovato says, referencing the 1999 movie’s kiss between Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair. “I was just like, ‘Oh, wait a minute. I really like that.’ I was like, ‘I want to try it!'”
“And then, when I was like, 17, I did get down with that, and that’s when I knew,” she continues. “You want the tea? That’s it!”
France’s a-ha moment also involved a celebrity. Growing up, his older sister had a poster of Keanu Reeves posing shirtless for the movie Point Break.
“I was probably 8,” he remembers. “She said, ‘I am going to marry him one day.’ And I said, ‘No, I am going to marry him!’ And as soon as the words came out of my mouth, I was like, ‘Oh my god, I think I like boys,’ and her response was, ‘Boys don’t marry boys, stupid!'”
“She was only like, 13,” France says. “She didn’t know, and I was like, ‘No, I am going to marry him one day! So Keanu if you are watching, watch yourself!”
