Demi Lovato announces she is using she/her pronouns again
"Everyone messes up pronouns at some point, and especially when people are learning, it's just all about respect."
Singer Demi Lovato has announced that she is using she/her pronouns.
Last year, Demi told her followers that she is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns. Now, however, she has confirmed that she is using she/her once more. Her Instagram bio currently lists her pronouns as they/them/she/her.
During an interview on the Spout Podcast, Demi spoke about her gender identity.
"I've actually adopted the pronouns of she/her again with me," she said. "So for me, I'm such a fluid person that I don't really and 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."
She continued: "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."
Demi then explained that as she's been feeling "more feminine", she has adopted she/her pronouns again. She also spoke about how she understands people will make mistakes when it comes to pronouns, but the most important thing is respect.
She said: "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."
Last year, Demi spoke about her non-binary identity and said that, for her, it means she is "much more than the binary of man and woman."
In an interview with the 19th Represents Summit, she said: "There might be a time where I identify as trans... 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."
