Demi Lovato, the singer and former Disney Channel actress, has started using “she” pronouns again.
Lovato, who in 2021 came out as non-binary and changed their pronouns to “they,” said on the “Spout” podcast this week that they’ve recently “felt more feminine” and embraced their old pronouns.
“I’m such a fluid person when it comes to my gender, my sexuality, my music, my creativity,” Lovato said on the podcast, a short celebrity interview series.
Lovato now uses the pronouns “they” and “she,” according to her Instagram account. She has also stated that she identifies as both gay and pansexual.
It is not uncommon for non-binary people to use gendered pronouns or exchange pronouns: singer Janelle Monae recently declared that she is non-binary and said she would continue to use the pronouns “she ” in addition to “they”.
Lovato said on “Spout” that while “everyone messes up pronouns” at some point, “it’s just a matter of respect.”
The “Cool for the Summer” singer is set to release his next album, “Holy F**k” later this month. One of the songs, “Skin of My Teeth,” was inspired by Lovato’s health issues after an overdose in 2018, which caused multiple strokes and brain damage. She said on “Spout” that she was sober throughout the making of her album, something she’s “so proud of.”
