Demi Lovato fans, it is time to celebrate! The new album, is finally freakin’ here! Move over Swifties because Lovatics have arrived, and they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Lovato released her new album on Sept. 29, 2017, and fans are completely flipping out. After her release of songs like “Sorry Not Sorry” and “You Don’t Do It For Me Anymore,” it’s safe to say fans were expecting gold. They were right. So, where did Lovato get this jolt of inspiration? And specifically, are any of Demi Lovato’s songs about Lauren Abedini, her rumored girlfriend?
Rumors spread after Lovato and openly out Abedini were spotted at Disneyland holding hands on Sept. 9, 2017. Get it, Lovato. My fingers are tightly crossed that this is her IRL girlfriend, so we can all bask in the glory of diversity and gay pride. It’s just gotta be true. Please be true. After much research and deliberation, it’s safe to say her new song “Only Forever” could be about Abedini and I am here for it! Here are the lyrics for you to see:
I think it’s pretty clear that this song could be about Abedini. Just look at this interview from Noisey.
Lovato explained her songwriting process for several songs on her new album:
I was frustrated with a certain situation … And I was like, ‘You know what, I’m just going to write about it.’ And so I did, and sent [the songs] to that person, and that was … Interesting. Any time you send a song about the person, to the person—it’s ballsy. It’s like, ‘Hey! Here’s my feelings for you!’ … They knew [about my feelings], but neither of us had acknowledged [them] before. And then it turned out that person had written a song about me, and we exchanged songs.
Oh, sh*t. Could “that person” be Abedini? She a musician, and Lovato was very intentional on not using gender pronouns. It’s possible!
Although holding hands at Disneyland is a pretty big deal, Lovato does not want to be labeled by her sexuality or who she is dating. The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer took to Twitter to air out her frustrations. She said,
Just because I’m refuse to label myself for the sake of a headline doesn’t mean I’m not going to stand up for what I believe in.
If you’re that curious about my sexuality, watch my documentary. But I don’t owe anybody anything.
Oh, snap! She is not having even a little bit of it! No sir. Even though her life is very public due to unmeasurable fame, she has every right to keep her romantic life private. You do you, Demi. In a recent interview with PrideSource.com’s Chris Azzopardi, Lovato was asked about her sexuality. She remarked,
I just feel like everyone’s always looking for a headline and they always want their magazine or TV show or whatever to be the one to break what my sexuality is. I feel like it’s irrelevant to what my music is all about. I stand up for the things that I believe in and the things that I’m passionate about, but I like to keep my personal life as private as possible when it comes to dating and sexuality and all that stuff just because it has nothing to do with my music. Unfortunately, we live in a world where everyone is trying to get that soundbite and I am purposefully not giving the soundbite. Watch my documentary.
She is not revealing a single, solid detail. So, let’s all get together and watch that damn documentary the minute it comes out. Lovato isn’t one to reveal much, but remember the song “Cool For The Summer”? Those lyrics definitely stirred up several rumors about her sexuality.
Tell me what you want
What you like
I’m a little curious too
Tell me if it’s wrong
If it’s right
I don’t care
I can keep a secret could, you?
Got my mind on your body
And your body on my mind
Got a taste for the cherry
I just need to take a bite
Don’t tell your mother
Kiss one another
Die for each other
We’re cool for the summer
I mean, what could “got a taste for the cherry” really imply? So, did she write a song about her Disneyland date? Maybe. What we do know is Lovato’s new album is amazing, and she’s ridiculously talented. Let’s let her talk about her sexuality on her own… or not. We’ll love her either way.
