Demi Lovato Claps Back After Being Criticized for Not Disclosing Her Sexuality: 'I Don't Owe Anybody Anything'

Demi Lovato Claps Back After Being Criticized for Not Disclosing Her Sexuality: 'I Don't Owe Anybody Anything'
Demi Lovato doesn't have to discuss her sexuality on anyone's terms but her own.

The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer took to Twitter on Wednesday to stand up for herself after fielding some criticism for refusing to disclose her sexuality in a recent interview with PrideSource.

"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," the 24-year-old artist explained. "If you're that curious about my sexuality, watch my documentary. But I don't owe anybody anything."

Lovato's response is in line with what she told the Lgbtq news outlet during the initial interview.

"I love who I love," Lovato shared. "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

Demi Lovato Held Hands With a Woman at Disney and the Internet Is Losing It
Demi Lovato was spotted at Disneyland this weekend with her friends, but among the familiar members of her squad like Kelsey Kershner, Sirah, Matthew Scott Montgomery, and Tucker Cauble, we couldn't help but notice a new addition. The 25-year-old "Sorry Not Sorry" singer walked hand in hand with Lauren Abedini, who goes by Kittens, while at the park in California. The two had huge smiles on their faces as they enjoyed their time in the happiest place on Earth, and we guess that's why people on Twitter were quick to assume the two were a couple. Neither of them has confirmed or denied anything, but that hasn't stopped Demi's fans from freaking out.

Nick Grimshaw doesn't pay attention to what the papers say: 'You have to get on with your life'

Nick Grimshaw says he ignores any stick he gets and doesn't let it bother him.

The X Factor judge told Alan Carr on Chatty Man, airing tonight (October 30), that it's not healthy to worry so much about what everyone thinks.

"It's a constant turnover in the papers, isn't it?" he said. "You could get stressed about it, and I was telling Mason [Noise] that as well, as he has been getting some stick. So I said you can't really live or die by it because it's not real.

"You can't really worry about that because you just kind of have to get on with your life. I think the minute you start thinking someone hates you, or Twitter said that, then you will be a weirdo and you will never leave your house. You will be crazy so you just have to ignore it.

"Everyone gets shit. My dad hates with a passion The Rolling Stones.

X Factor's Nick Grimshaw reveals Seann and Mason have become best friends

Nick Grimshaw has revealed an unlikely close friendship among his X Factor Boys.

The judge told Alan Carr on Chatty Man, which airs tonight (October 30), that Mason Noise and Seann Miley Moore have been getting along famously and enjoying each other's company.

"Where do we start with Seann?" he said. "He keeps a pearl necklace [in his handbag] because he says every man should have one. That is what he said.

"Mason gave him one. Mason is very sweet, and they have a very lovely relationship. I love that Seann and Mason are best friends, because you wouldn't put them two together, would you?

"He's a proper lad, and Seann is Seann, and Mason helps him down the stairs and carries his bag. It is the funniest friendship in town."

Grimmy also defended Mason once again, praising his talent and pointing out that he has apologised for his previous behaviour, when he had

Nick Grimshaw knew he'd get 'scrutiny' on The X Factor

Nick Grimshaw knew he'd get ''scrutiny'' on 'The X Factor.' The show judge - who is in charge of mentoring the boys' group this year - believes he was prepared for the backlash he received when he joined the ITV programme earlier this summer after he replaced TV favourite Louis Walsh. Speaking on 'Alan Carr: Chatty Man', he said: ''I knew I'd get the scrutiny as Louis Walsh is so loved.'' However, the radio presenter, 31, tries to brush off the hurtful criticism rather than let it get to him and depress him. He added: ''You've got to ignore it. My dad hates

Romesh Ranganathan: 'The Apprentice's Claude Littner is actually a really nice guy'

Who'd have thought. It turns out that Apprentice hard man Claude Littner is actually a nice bloke.

Romesh Ranganathan - a regular on BBC Two's The Apprentice: You're Fired - told Alan Carr on Chatty Man that although he found Lord Sugar's aide terrifying, there's a warmer side to him.

"I did one of the You're Fired shows with him, and he was one of the panel," he said. "And it was frightening being next to him, worrying that he is going to turn and analyse what you are wearing and what you are doing on the show.

"He is intimidating but actually he is a really nice guy.

"Just in that context, he makes you shit yourself. You can't do anything about that."

The Apprentice saw its third firing this series on Wednesday (October 21), with Jenny Garbis becoming the latest candidate to be sent home.

Catastrophe's Sharon Horgan: 'You don't want boobs in comedy - but we balance it out with Rob's arse'

Catastrophe creators Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney have weighed in on the show's sex scenes.

The pair admitted that they were "maybe awkward" to shoot the first time, but they find them more straightforward now.

"You're more pre-occupied with who is going to bring you a towel than whether there is a naked man on top of you," Horgan said on Alan Carr: Chatty Man, airing tonight (October 16). "It just gets down to practicalities."

On how the idea of sex scenes was brought up, Delaney commented: "We wanted to show a man and woman under incredible stress, and what's a better way to make people angry and terrified than to introduce sex?

"That is going to make anything worse, so we knew it had to be a part of it."

Horgan - who is always seen wearing a bra - added that there isn't a demand for nudity in a comedy programme.

Wow! The Last Leg presenter Adam Hills got into the spirit of Channel 4's Stand Up To Cancer telethon by shaving his head.

Viewers were asked to vote on how they would like the show to finish, either with diehard Arsenal fan Alex Brooker wearing a Spurs football shirt, Greg Davies weightlifting Josh Widdicombe or Hills shaving his head.

Gareth Malone criticises Russell Crowe in Les Misérables: 'He should have known better'

Gareth Malone hasn't held back in his criticism of Russell Crowe's performance in Les Misérables.

The choirmaster, who fronts The Naked Choir with Gareth Malone, told Alan Carr on Chatty Man that Crowe shouldn't have gone for the part of Javert in the first place.

"Not one of the standout performances, was it?" he said. "I think it is all about context. Why, if you were somebody that doesn't sing, would you put yourself up for a role like that?

"So many people put themselves up for karaoke and choose the wrong songs. If you are in any way connected with singing and somebody goes for one of the Whitneys - you see them on X Factor every week - everyone just goes, 'Oh no'.

"Russell Crowe should have known better. Somebody should have told him. I would have told him. Reality check."

All eyes will once again be on the Saturday night ratings battle between Strictly Come Dancing and The X Factor in a few weeks, but Strictly hosts Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly don't care one jot about them.

It probably helps that Strictly normally triumphs over its ITV rivals, but that's by the by.
