Why she still changes her pronouns
Demi Lovato has once again adopted female pronouns – she explains in a podcast what this evolution is all about.
Pop star Demi Lovato (29) announced on her social media in May last year that she had identified as non-binary. Lovato changed her pronouns to “they/them” in English. These pronouns were also featured in the bio of the artist’s Instagram page. During this time, Lovato also added the pronouns “elle/elle” (“she/her”).
In the “Spout” podcast The singer explained her decision: “I actually took the pronouns from her.” The reason for this is her “fluid personality”, according to Lovato. Lately, she would have felt more feminine again.
“I just felt human”
In conversation, Lovato also relates of the past few months, “I felt, especially last year, that my male and female energy was balanced.” For example, if she had to choose between using the men’s or women’s bathroom, Lovato said she couldn’t have made up her mind. “Because I didn’t necessarily feel like a woman. I didn’t feel like a man. I just felt like a human being.”
People with non-binary gender identities do not clearly define themselves as male or female. On Twitter Lovato announced in 2021 that the decision followed a period of healing and self-reflection. In another post, the star said changing pronouns to “they/them” makes them feel more authentic about who Lovato is and remains to be discovered.
