Story highlights

Lovato said she's casually dating and her "heart is pretty open," even though she said she ignored red flags during her whirlwind engagement last year.

Demi Lovato has started embracing her queerness more and more.

The singer opened up about her dating life in her new cover story for Glamour and declared she's "too queer" to be involved with cisgender men.

"When I started getting older, I started realizing how queer I really am," Lovato told the magazine.

The "Still Have Me" singer, who previously came out to her parents as bisexual in 2017, called off her two-month engagement to Max Ehrich in September.

"This past year I was engaged to a man, and when it didn't work, I was like, 'This is a huge sign.' I thought I was going to spend my life with someone. Now that I wasn't going to, I felt this sense of relief that I could live my truth," she said.

More recently, on the style front, the pop star chopped her signature dark hair into a pixie cut and dyed it pink.

She said that it was a liberating decision, connected to the exploration of her sexuality.

"I hooked up with a girl and was like, 'I like this a lot more.' It felt better. It felt right," Lovato said. "Some of the guys I was hanging out with - when it would come time to be sexual or intimate, I would have this kind of visceral reaction. Like, 'I just don't want to put my mouth there.'"

"It wasn't even based on the person it was with," she continued. "I just found myself really appreciating the friendships of those people more than the romance, and I didn't want the romance from anybody of the opposite sex."

Lovato said she's casually dating and her "heart is pretty open," even though she said she ignored red flags during her whirlwind engagement last year.

"Because I denied my intuition of all the red flags that had popped up, I had no one else to blame but myself," she says. "So I was like, 'How am I ever going to trust again?' But really, I was like, you should have trusted yourself. If you had trusted yourself, you wouldn't have ended up in this position.'"

"I'm very much listening to my intuition, and that's not to say my boundaries or my guard is up," she added. "It's just saying my ears are perked a little higher and my eyes are open a little wider."
