Bella Thorne Reveals Demi Lovato Is Her Celeb Crush & The Feeling Is Obviously Mutual
Bella Thorne may be busy sharing rather ~risqué~ photos with boyfriend Tyler Posey on social media, but there's always room for a lil' celeb crush. Yes, even when — or maybe even especially when — you're a celebrity yourself. In this case, Thorne's celeb crush is Demi Lovato, a fact she recently revealed to Maxim, and it's clear that the feeling is mutual.
When asked which stars she was crushing on, the 19-year-old actor had no problem giving a shoutout to her fellow (former) Disney Channel ladies, particularly Lovato.
"Demi Lovato. I must say…rawrrrr. She is a pretty toasty woman," the former Shake It Up star told the magazine. "Miley Cyrus, too. She’s dope. But Demi is fire, just fire."
For fans of the Thorne/Lovato ship (Della? Bemi?), Thorne's admission really comes as no surprise. She's made her crush on the "Body Say" singer well known on social media, and it's already been lovingly reciprocated by Lovato. Like, just look at the following Twitter exchanges between the two that occurred just weeks apart: Thorne's thirsting is legit, and Lovato even flat-out states that the crush is "1000% mutual." There's no need to read between the lines or even look at any subtle nuances — the Thorne/Lovato mutual crush thing is legit AF.
Both Thorne and Lovato have been outspoken about their sexuality. Over the summer, Thorne responded with a simple "yes" when a fan on Twitter asked if she was bisexual, later thanking fans for their love and support after her announcement. In early June, Lovato told People that her sexuality is something that she does not want to label.
"It’s something I don’t think needs to have a label," she explained at the time. "As humans, it’s just about a connection with someone."
As for something actually happening IRL between these two, it looks like only time will tell. Thorne is clearly head over heels in her relationship with Tyler Posey, and Lovato is starting over after breaking up with longtime love Wilmer Valderrama. No matter what, it's refreshing (and adorable) to see these two so honest about their "celeb crushes" on each other. Long live the mutual compliments!
