Bella Thorne, seen above drinking Fanta like we all do, recently spoke to Maxim about lots of stuff that I’m sure the average Maxim reader really appreciated knowing. Bella talked about wanting to do Demi Lovato, the numerous thirst traps she sets on Instagram and her boyfriend Tyler Posey. She also talked about coming out as bisexual and how some uptight industry people responded to that declaration by telling her to turn it down.
Back in August, Bella admitted she was bi after people asked about a Snapchat of her kissing her brother’s ex-girlfriend. Ever since then, she’s made no secret about her sexual identity on Instagram and Snapchat. Bella says her fans were supportive of her, but publicists and studios weren’t feeling it.
“It is hard in this business for us. It really is. I have already had people talk shit to me. And it comes from people in the industry, not even fans. I’ve had studios tell me my image is too ‘out there,’ hinting at it but not really saying it. [Publicists] tell me all the time about my social media and my Snapchat, but I’m not going to change myself for this business, and I’m not going to change myself for anyone else.”
I’m pretty sure Bella’s not the only 19-year-old taking thirsty bikini selfies for Instagram likes and making out with a variety of people on Snapchat, so I have no idea why these publicists and studio people are so shocked that she’s doing that kind of stuff. It’s like Bella works in some kind of weird part of Hollywood that only employs sweet Midwestern ladies in their mid-40s named Jeanie who are still all shook up from that time they walked past a topless mannequin at Dillard’s.
