Demi Lovato has been quite candid about their coming-out journey and now in a recent interview, the American singer revealed some more updates about their status.
The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer revealed in a new interview with The 19th that while they currently identify as non-binary that could change in the future. “There might be a time where I identify as trans. I don’t know what this looks like for me. There might be a time where I identify as non-binary and gender-nonconforming my entire life,” Lovato shared. “Or maybe there’s a period of time when I get older that I identify as a woman, I don’t know what that looks like, but for me, at this moment right now, this is how I identify.”
But Demi not only revealed this. In the same interview, the 'Melon Cake' singer credited ending the engagement to Max Ehrich sharing it helped them find their true self. "I was able to stand on my own two feet without needing someone else to validate me or to make me feel accepted," they said. "And when I said goodbye to that relationship, I also said goodbye to everything that was holding me back from being my most authentic self."
They also shared that they had realized they were nonbinary before getting into the relationship with Ehrich, which caused them to "ignore" parts of themselves. When they called it quits in September, it helped Lovato to really find their true self. They explained, "I met someone and I got into this straight relationship, and that was great, but that led me to ignoring all the parts of myself that I didn't think were digestible for my partner at the time, who ended up becoming my fiancé."
Demi Lovato also revealed the challenges they faced before coming out as nonbinary. "I was very nervous in the beginning to come out as nonbinary because I didn't want people to think it was inauthentic," they explained. "I just wanted people to see what coming out as nonbinary meant to my healing process." Back in May, Lovato took to Twitter to share that they were coming out as non-binary and will use they/them pronouns.“I wanna take this moment to share something very personal with you,” said Lovato in an emotional video shared to Twitter. “Over the past year and a half I’ve been doing some healing and self-reflective work, and through this work, I’ve had the revelation that I identify as non-binary. With that said, I’ll officially be changing my pronouns to they/them. 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.”
