The singer announced in July last year that she and Max were engaged three months into their relationship. However, Demi’s family and friends disapproved of the actor so two months later, the couple called off the engagement and broke up.
She explained to the outlet, “I really had myself fooled, because it was the safe and expected thing. 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 added that her million-dollar engagement ring “made it really real”.
The 28-year old said, “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. It looks like stability, but it doesn’t mean that it is.”
Demi also appeared on Glamour earlier this month. She told the magazine that ending her engagement to the actor helped her see how queer she really is.
She admitted being “really queer” and how she’s enjoying her time as she explored this side of her. She said, “I know who I am and what I am, but I’m just waiting until a specific timeline to come out to the world as what I am. I’m following my healers’ timeline, and I’m using this time to really study and educate myself on my journey and what I’m preparing to do.”- Advertisement -
“When I started getting older, I started realizing how queer I really am,” the pop star explained. “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.”
