During a recent episode of 4D with Demi Lovato, Siwa spoke about that moment when she came to terms with her sexuality and said it happened when she watched a fun episode of Lip sync battle.
“I recently discovered my ‘gay awakenings’,” the Dance Moms‘said an elder. “I think I realized my very first gay wake-up call was Jenna Dewan’s performance on Lip sync battle. I think it was one of them. “
“Yesterday I was talking to my girlfriend, Kylie Prew, about our gay awakenings, and she said she went to your concert, and it was that concert,” Siwa added.
“She probably should have been 12, maybe or 13, and she was there with her mother. “
Siwa, who identifies as pansexual, said she wanted to wait until she was in a relationship to get out of the world.
“The only thing that kept me from telling the world right away was my girlfriend’s family and my girlfriend because I wanted to make sure she was ready,” the “Boomerang” singer explained. .
“You always know that. I always knew with me, but I always said I wasn’t going to do nothing with it or be like, ‘Hey, by the way, I’m gay, but I’m not in love with a girl yet. But I’m gay, and I know it. ‘ “
“I always said, ‘I’ll wait until I have a girlfriend or a girl I’m in love with and then I’ll do something with it,’” she continued. “And then it happened. “
Siwa and Prew had been best friends for a year until they decided to take their relationship to the next level.
“During this time, I couldn’t avoid my feelings,” Siwa explained of her longtime crush on Prew. “The tension was, like, you could cut it with a knife. It was crazy. “
Luckily for Siwa, Prew felt the same. The dancer said she knew her friend liked her when she asked her if she was falling for someone.
However, Siwa cautions that it’s best to be careful whenever you’re in love with your best friend.
“If you secretly feel something for your best friend or someone close to you, and you tell them and that makes something else go away, that is not a real best friend,” he said. she declared. “It shouldn’t affect anything. You have the right to have a crush on anyone you want to have a crush on. It’s up to them if they do anything with it. “
