While promoting forthcoming album HOLY FVCK, Demi Lovato has addressed her gender pronouns.
“I’ve actually adopted the pronouns of she/her again,” Lovato said on Monday’s episode of The Spout Podcast, confirming news from April. “So for me, I’m such a fluid person that I don’t really… I don’t find that I am… I felt like, especially last year, my energy was balanced and my masculine and feminine energy, so that when I was faced with the choice of walking into a bathroom and it said, women and men, I didn’t feel like there was a bathroom for me because I didn’t feel necessarily like a woman. I didn’t feel like a man. I just felt like a human. And that’s what they/them is, is about for me, it’s just about, like, feeling human at your core.”
“Over the past year and a half, I’ve been doing some healing and self-reflective work. And through this work, I’ve had the revelation that I identify as nonbinary,” Lovato announced. “With that said, I’ll officially be changing my pronouns to they/them. I feel that this best represents the fluidity I feel in my gender expression and allows me to feel most authentic and true to the person I both know I am, and still am discovering.”
In April, Lovato updated her pronouns on Instagram to they/them/she/her, and the description remains.
“Recently I’ve been feeling more feminine, and so I’ve adopted she/her again,” she said on the new podcast. “But I think what’s important is, like, nobody’s perfect. Everyone messes up pronouns at some point, and especially when people are learning, it’s just all about respect.”
A year ago, she said that, for her, gender is an evolution. “There might be a time where I identify as trans. I don’t know what this looks like for me,” Lovato said at The 19th Represents Summit, according to Just Jared. “There might be a time where I identify as non-binary and gender nonconforming my entire life. Or maybe there’s a period of time when I get older that I identify as a woman, I don’t know what that looks like, but for me, in this moment right now, this is how I identify. And I have a feeling that it’s not going to ever go back to one way or the other, but I just, it’s about keeping it open and free and just I’m a very fluid person, and so that goes with how I express myself as well.”
When originally announcing her change in pronouns, Lovato had said she was still “learning and coming into myself.”
