Demi Lovato opens up about her ex-relationship in a new interview, saying she had herself ‘fooled’ into thinking she had her life together by getting engaged to Max Ehrich.
Demi Lovato, 28, is Very regretful when it came to getting engaged so quickly to actor Max Ehrich in July 2020. The “Sorry Not Sorry” hitmaker says she had herself “fooled” into believing that type of commitment was something that she needed in order to “prove” she was “okay” in the two years since her July 24, 2018, near-fatal drug overdose.
“I really had myself fooled. Because it was the safe. And the expected thing,” the “Stone Cold” singer revealed to Entertainment Weekly. Where would not speak about Max by name. “Obviously I cared deeply about the person. But there was something inside of me. That was like. ‘I have to prove to the world. That I’m okay.’”
“Now that I’m not engaged. Or married and I’m okay. I’m like, ‘Wow. Isn’t that so much more empowering?’ It’s not this false sense of security”. The singer explained.
“Also, the size of that ring. It made it really real. The second it was off. I was like. ‘You know what? I’m good. I don’t need that’. I just don’t need an object. On my finger. To make me feel like. I’ve got my s–t together,” she said. Demi also explained. That “It looks like stability. But it doesn’t mean that it is.”
The 28 years old singer also revealed that the way she finds growth isn’t in a secure and reliable place. “I don’t actually grow through stability. I find that I like living. Not in chaos or crisis. But in fluidity. It’s not [being] stuck. And stagnant in an ideal. Or a tradition that was placed upon us. By the patriarchy.”
in addition, Demi explains why she’s not interested in marriage now. Saying that she’s “just too queer,” after finally deciding to live her truth that she’d spoken of so many times in the past.
“Regardless if drama is happening. Or not. I am too gay to marry a man right now,” Demi revealed. “I don’t know if that will change in 10 years. And I don’t know if that’ll never change. But I love accepting myself,” she explained, adding, “I’ve always known I was hella queer. But I have fully embraced it.”
