Demi Lovato, who recently broke up with a man 13 years her senior, made a startling revelation on The Late Show last night. She told host Stephen Colbert that when she was an 8-year-old actor on Barney & Friends, she thought Barney was hot.

“Barney was actually very attractive inside the suit,” she said, eyes widening. “I’ve always gone for older guys, so even when I was younger, I thought the guy in the suit was hot.” 

She went on to explain that Barney was “jacked” because the suit weighed “like 100 pounds.” 

“That changes my view of that show,” Colbert responded. Mine too! Below, a clip from Lovato’s time on the show (also featuring Selena Gomez):
