Chatting on The Spout Podcast, Demi Lovato opened up the conversation around her choice of pronouns after coming out as non-binary last year. Now, she has an update to those they/them pronouns.
Gender identity is often not an easy path for people to walk and Demi Lovato confirms that one of the most crucial parts of that journey is "respect".
Last year, Lovato came out online stating "officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward". However, recently on The Spout podcast, she shared that her pronouns now include she/her as well as they/them and she went on to explain that addition.
"Recently I've been feeling more feminine, and so I've adopted she/her again" she says. Explaining further, she continues "But I think what's important is, like, nobody's perfect. Everyone messes up pronouns at some point, especially when people are learning".
Lovato would describe herself as "fluid" and references the fluidity she felt last year at the time she came out as non-binary, "I felt like, especially last year, my energy was balanced, my masculine and feminine energy".
She expands "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. And that's what they/them is about".
