Demi Lovato to help war-scarred children in Iraq

NEW YORK (AP) — Demi Lovato was named a Global Citizen ambassador at the organization’s annual music festival Saturday, championing the mental health of thousands of children displaced within Iraq and other vulnerable communities.

The singer and Global Citizen will fund the expansion of a Save the Children pilot program, Healing and Education through the Arts, to violence-scarred young people living in Iraq’s Kirkuk and Salah al Din areas.

“Ending the stigma around mental health conditions and supporting internally displaced children to build physical and mental resilience through education and access to justice is not a choice, it needs to happen, and it needs to happen now,” the singer said onstage in Central Park.

Since 2014, more than 3 million people in Iraq have been displaced within the country due to war and conflict. Carolyn Miles, president and CEO of Save the Children, told the festival crowd the organization’s HEART program will allow displaced children scarred by the violence to process trauma “through drawing, painting, music and other art forms” as a way to begin healing and “rebuild their self-confidence and trust in others.”

Lovato has been a strong advocate for mental health issues after sharing her own struggles with eating disorders, substance abuse and a bipolar diagnosis.

Billboard describes Demi’s new disco-inspired single Sexy Dirty Love as ‘lusty’.

Demi addressed her sexuality once again in a tweet over the weekend where she said: ‘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 followed up with: ‘If you’re that curious about my sexuality, watch my documentary. But I don’t owe anybody anything’

In an interview that ran last week, PrideSource asked Demi for ‘a reason you choose not to speak openly about your sexuality?’

Demi replied: ‘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. I feel like it’s irrelevant to what my music is all about,’ she contended.

‘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.’

‘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.’

She’s plugged: ‘I have a documentary coming out on October 12 (on YouTube called “Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated”) and I answer a lot of questions in my documentary.’

She said there will be ‘some’ broaching of her sexuality in the movie, ‘Because if ever I want to talk about it, I want it to be on my own terms.’

Demi Lovato Won’t Answer Questions About Her Sexuality

Demi Lovato is a major LGBT advocate.

However, around two years ago she released the hit song ‘Cool For The Summer’ which many people read as being a reference to some sort of sexual ambiguity from the singer and actress.

She told chat show host Alan Carr at the time that, ‘I’m not confirming, and I’m definitely not denying,’ Demi told Carr about whether the song was about a same-sex encounter. She continued: ‘All of my songs are based off of personal experiences. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with experimentation at all.’

Carr joked that he experimented once and never stopped. Demi added, ‘Hey, I didn’t say that it didn’t stick, either. I didn’t say that it didn’t stick.’

The 25 year-old was recently seen holding hands with a girl at Disneyland which has lead many fans to presume they are in a romantic relationship.

According to Perez Hilton, this woman is a DJ called Lauren Abedini.

On Wednesday, with rumours swirling in the air, Lovato took to Twitter to have a word saying that, ‘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…If you’re that curious about my sexuality, watch my documentary. But I don’t owe anybody anything.’

She expanded on her Tweets in a recent interview with Pride Source, explaining:

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. 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. 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.

Her documentary is called Simply Complicated and aims to take a backstage peek at the ex-Disney star’s life.
