Superstar Demi Lovato finally explained why she’s decided to go back to using “she/her” pronouns after previously announcing that she was “non-binary” and identified as “they/them.”
During the 29-year-old singer/actress’s recent appearance on the “Spout Podcast,” Lovato talked about the decision to go back to identifying as “she/her,” and said it was because lately the performer’s been feeling more of the feminine vibe, Entertainment Tonight reported in a piece published Tuesday. In May, fans noticed Lovato had suddenly added “she/her pronouns” to her Instagram page, as The Daily Wire previously reported, but never explained the move.
“Yeah, so, they/them is, um, I’ve actually adopted the pronouns of she/her again with me,” the “Heart Attack” hitmaker told the host. “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,” she added. “I just felt like a human. And that’s what they/them is about for me. it’s just about like feeling human at your core.”
“Recently I’ve been feeling more feminine, and so I’ve adopted she/her again,” the singer continued. “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.”
In May 2021, Lovato came out as non-binary and announced embracing “they/them” pronouns in a video posted on Twitter to the star’s fans. As of this publication, her Instagram page still shows “they/them/she/her” as pronouns in her bio, despite her comments on the show, so it’s unclear if she’s completely abandoning the “they/them” pronouns, or now going by those as well.
