Is Demi Lovato's "Cool For The Summer" About A Same-Sex Fling?

Sapphic relationships are apparently "Cool for the Summer."

Posted on

Demi Lovato’s highly anticipated new single, “Cool for the Summer,” made its way online this morning and it’s every bit the banger fans were hoping for.

The single will officially premiere tomorrow on iHeartRadio.

The song — packed with dark, sexy synths and big, infectious hooks — marks a new sound for the singer, but it’s the sapphic overtones that are the real surprise.

A quick peek at the lyrics would seem to confirm that the song is about a same-sex summer fling, and the video trailer Lovato shared on Instagram over the weekend is similarly suggestive.

When asked if the song is just a pop fantasy in the vein of Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" or an actual coming-out, a representative for Lovato told BuzzFeed Music, “Demi's just young and having fun.”

“She's in the driver's seat for the first time in her career and she's going to sing about whatever she wants to sing about.”

A previous version of this story linked to a stream of the song on PerezHilton.com that is no longer available.
