Demi Lovato has announced she identifies as pansexual.

The 28-year-old singer recently opened up about her sexuality in an interview on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

She revealed that she used to be ‘super closeted off’ but can now embrace her true self.

“I’m so fluid now, and a part of the reason why I am so fluid is because I was, like, super closeted off,” she said.

Rogan then asked: “You mean sexually fluid? You like girls? You like boys?”

“Yeah, anything, really,” she replied.

The former Disney actress, who recently brought out a new docuseries titled Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil, went on to tell Rogan that she realised was also attracted to women when she was a child.

However, she tried to ‘shut down’ her feelings as she thought it was shameful.

Lovato recalled: “I felt a lot of shame because growing up in Texas as a Christian, that’s very frowned upon.

“Any attraction that I ever had toward a female at a young age, I shut it down before I even let myself process what I was feeling.”

The star broke off her engagement with actor Max Ehrich last year. Lovato said she now thinks she’s ‘too gay’ to consider settling down with a man.

She explained: “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.

“I’ve always known I was hella queer, but I have fully embraced it.”
