The 24-year-old former Disney star takes to social media to respond to a fan's post slamming her for refusing to talk about her sexuality in a recent interview.
"I love Demi Lovato, but her reason for refusing to talk about her sexuality is total bulls**t," the fan wrote with an accompanying article explaining why. In response to the tweet, Lovato replied, "Expectant and rude," before telling the fan to "watch my documentary and chill out."

Expectant and rude. Watch my documentary and chill out.— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) September 20, 2017
The 24-year-old Grammy-nominated songstress followed up with a second tweet minutes later, "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." She then added, "If you're that curious about my sexuality, watch my documentary. But I don't owe anybody anything."

The posts echo the sentiment the "Tell Me You love Me" singer recently shared with PrideSource. "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," Lovato told the publication. "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," she said. "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."
The former Disney star said she answers "a lot of questions" in her documentary. Asked if the questions she answers are about her sexuality, she replied, "Yeah, some about that. Because if ever I want to talk about it, I want it to be on my own terms."
Lovato's documentary titled "Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated" debuts October 12 on YouTube.
