Demi Lovato shares why she changed pronouns back to she/her after using they/them

The Grammy-nominated singer has shared why she decided to use she/her pronouns again

Demi Lovato has shared the reasons behind her decision to use she/her pronouns again after using they/them since 2021.

The two-time Grammy-nominated musician, 30, came out as non-binary in a video shared in May 2021.

"Every day we wake up, we are given another opportunity & chance to be who we want & wish to be. I've spent the majority of my life growing in front of all of you… you've seen the good, the bad, & everything in between," she captioned the clip.

"Not only has my life been a journey for myself, I was also living for those on the other side of the cameras.

"Today is a day I'm so happy to share more of my life with you all- I am proud to let you know that I identify as non-binary & will officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward."

The Sonny With a Chance star explained her gender identity at the time in the video, saying: "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."

However, Demi opened up about using she/her pronouns again in an August 2022 interview on the Spout podcast and what led to the update.

"I've actually adopted the pronouns of she/her again with mem" Demi explained before describing herself as a 'fluid person'.

"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."

She added: "And that's what they/them is about. For me, it's just about, like, feeling human at your core."

The Camp Rock alum, who was promoting her most recent album Holy Fvck at the time, added that pronouns are still a learning process for people in general.

"Recently, I've been feeling more feminine," she said.

"I think what’s important is, like, nobody’s perfect," she added, before addressing people misgendering her. "Everyone messes up pronouns at some point, and especially when people are learning, it’s just all about respect.”

As of January 2023, the 'Stone Cold' singer's Instagram bio includes they/them and she/her in the pronouns section.
