NEW YORK • Pop star Demi Lovato brought on a sensation on the finish of her North American tour in Newark on Monday when she made out with rising R&B star Kehlani onstage.
As topless male dancers in white caps and trousers pranced round her, former Disney baby star Lovato sat on a white mattress and sang Lonely. Her opening act, Kehlani, instantly plopped down behind her and reached over to kiss her on the lips.
With followers cheering, Lovato smiled and hugged Kehlani.
Fan footage of the sudden romp unfold rapidly and the concert trended on social media.
For some, what Lovato described on Instagram as an “incredible fun sexy crazy night” raised questions on her sexuality.
The 25-year-old informed her 56 million followers: “I like my girls just like I like my honey,” in a reference to Honey, a music during which Kehlani touches on bisexuality.
On Instagram, Kehlani stated the dancers had inspired her to go onstage for the kiss, however “anyone would be stupid not to jump at the chance”.
Lovato, who dated actor Wilmer Valderrama for six years, performs in Sao Paulo on April 15 on the Latin American leg of her tour.
