Although Demi says she’s ‘still figuring it out’ when it comes to her sexuality, she told Andy, “I didn’t tell my parents that I saw myself possibly ending up possibly with a woman until 2017.  It was actually, like, emotional but really beautiful.”   Demi says both of her parents were ‘so supportive,’ “My dad was like, ‘Yeah obviously!’ And I was like, ‘OK, Dad.’  He said like, ‘Hello? ‘Cool for the Summer!” And I was like, ‘Ok, I get it.'”  As for her mom, “My mom was the one that I was super nervous about, but she was just like ‘I just want you to be happy.’  That was so beautiful and amazing, and like, I said, I’m so grateful.” 


In terms of Demi’s future, she dishes, “I don’t know what my future looks like — I don’t know if I’m gonna have kids this year or in 10 years. I don’t know if I’m going to do it with a partner or without. Because women, we don’t need partners to … you know? Amen!”





Demi delivered powerful and emotional performance during the 62nd GRAMMY Awards – she took a chance and sang a new single, which was written and recorded days before her overdose, “That song, [‘Anyone’], I knew that it represented that period in my life when everything hit the fan.  I knew it represented everything I was going through, the vulnerability… I’ve never had a moment like this where I’ve sat down at a piano, or stood next to a piano, and sang my heart out.  I thought, if I ever come back from this… I was still in the hospital.  I didn’t know. If I ever come back from this… I want it to be at the Grammys and I want it to be this song.”




Demi continues, “When I performed the song, I looked at the front row and I saw my mom and my two sisters, and I think having… seeing them in the front row just overwhelmed me with emotion.  Also, it was very much in my head, like, this is the first time you’re on stage in a year and a half.”




Andy then asked if she ‘truly thought she may not return to music,’ Demi responded with, “Yeah, absolutely.  It was a general [thought] though. We didn’t know what was going to happen. We didn’t know how healthy I would be when I left. It was a scary time in my life, for sure.  I had that voice in my head, and then, also, I put myself back in that hospital bed listening to that song, on little speakers in the ICU. I put myself back in that position and I was just overwhelmed.”
