While promoting an upcoming album FVCK SAINT, Demi lovato after addressing their gender pronouns.
“I have accepted the pronouns of her / her again,” Lovato said on Monday’s episode The Spout Podcast, confirming news from April. “So for me, I’m such a fluid person that I’m not really … I don’t realize that I’m … I felt, especially last year, that 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 he said, men and women, I didn’t feel like there was a bathroom for me because I didn’t necessarily feel like a woman. I just felt like a person. And that’s about them, it’s about me, I mean, like, feeling human at your core.”
“For the past year and a half, I have been doing some healing and self-expressive work. And through this work, I have had the revelation that I identify as non-binary,” announced Lovato. “With that being said, I will be officially changing my pronouns to them. I feel this best represents the fluidity I feel in my gender expression and allows me to feel most authentic and true to who I am. I both know who I am, and I’m still finding out.”
In April, Lovato update their pronouns on Instagram to them, and the description remains.
“Lately I’ve been feeling more feminine, so I adopted again,” she said on the new podcast. “But I think the important thing is, for example, that nobody is perfect. Everyone messes up pronouns at some point, and especially when people are learning, it’s just respect.”
A year ago, she said, for her, gender is 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 Representation Summit, according to Just Jared. “There might be a time when I identify as non-binary and gender non-conforming my whole life. Or there might be a time when I get older that I identify as a woman, I don’t know I don’t know what that looks like, but for me, in this moment right now, this is how I recognize And I have a feeling that it’s not going to go back to one way or another forever, but I just, it’s about keeping it open and free and I’m just a very fluid person, so that goes with how I express myself as well.”
When Lovato first announced the change in pronouns, Lovato said she was still “learning and coming into myself.”
