Media outlets and Twitter followers can ask Demi Lovato about her sexuality, but she isn't going to answer. It doesn’t matter that she was spotted at Disneyland holding hands with DJ/producer Lauren Abedini, or that she released the bi-curious song "Cool For Summer." Recently, Chris Azzopardi of tried to get the singer to go on the record about her sexuality. Lovato declined, telling the site: “I love who I love.”

But just because Lovato doesn't provide a clear cut answer and is pushing folks toward her YouTube documentary, I Am: Demi Lovato, and keeping your prying eyes from what she’s doing (and who she's doing it with) between her 1,800-thread count sheets, doesn’t mean she isn’t going to stand up for the LGBT community. She's still fearless as ever about that.
