‘I am too gay to marry a man right now’: Demi Lovato says she’s ‘fully embraced’ her sexuality after calling off her engagement to Max Ehrich

Demi Lovato has insisted she’s ‘too gay to marry a man right now’ after calling off her relationship with Max Ehrich.

In a new interview, the musician, 28, who was engaged to the fellow artist, 29, from last July until September, insisted that while she’s ‘always known I was hella queer’, she’s ‘fully embraced’ her sexuality since becoming single. 

The former Disney Channel star told Entertainment Weekly: ‘Regardless if drama is happening or not, I am too gay to marry a man right now.

‘I don’t know if that will change in 10 years and I don’t know if that’ll never change, but I love accepting myself.” As Lovato says with unapologetic bluntness, “I’ve always known I was hella queer, but I have fully embraced it.” 

‘The queerness in me was, like, ready to explode when I filmed the music video at Pride. I was so ready to be an activist. And then people would ask me, ‘Why are you so passionate about this?’ And I would clam up.’

The actress added that she feels ‘much more empowered’ since splitting from Max, and felt ‘good’ after removing her $450,000 engagement ring.

Demi echoed her comments in a recent interview with Glamour, confessing their relationship was an eye-opener to the extent of her queerness.

The Camp Rock star said: ‘When I started getting older, I started realizing how queer I really am. 

‘This past year, I was engaged to a man and when it didn’t work, I was like, ”This is a huge sign.” I thought I was going to spend my life with someone… Now that I wasn’t going to, I felt this sense of relief that I could live my truth.’ 

Demi revealed she has been intimate with a woman, which she said ‘felt better’ than her experiences with men, but she is hesitant to label herself just yet.

On her sexuality, she said: ”I know who I am and what I am, but I’m just waiting until a specific timeline to come out to the world as what I am…

‘I’m following my healers’ timeline, and I’m using this time to really study and educate myself on my journey and what I’m preparing to do. I hooked up with a girl and was like, ”I like this a lot more.” It felt better. It felt right.’

Demi said it was ‘liberating’ to share her story with the public, telling People: ‘Having put that out in front of the camera and knowing that people have seen that, it’s freeing. It’s empowering.’ 

‘It really lets that anger that was inside of me dissolve,’ she went on. ‘I had let go of a lot of the anger before and, but this was kind of just the final send-off, like, okay, I can really heal from this now.’
