Remember those days when Demi Lovato was fighting over the fans calling her with the incorrect pronouns? Well, forget about it because the American singer is changing her mind and chose to go back and use she/her.
This new (old?) update was revealed on her social media platforms. Now, alongside they/them, it can be read she/her. Before you get confused about it, they and them are used by those individuals who identify as non-binary or want to express themselves as gender neutral, while she and her are used by those who identify as a woman.
About the decision to go and use she/her again, Demi Lovato revealed in an interview with Tamara Dhia on the Spout podcast."Yeah, so, they/them is... I've actually adopted the pronouns of she/her again."
According to Demi Lovato, her decision came to happen because of the energy she is exuding right now because she is in fact, really fluid when talking about gender. “For me, I'm such a fluid person that ... I felt like, especially last year, my energy was balanced in my masculine and feminine energy.”
Demi went on to add that this came to light when she felt there was no room for her because of a scenario, such as going to the bathroom. “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."
But that's last year's story. As fr now, Demi Lovato says she is inclined to feel her feminine side more but clarifies that the usage of pronouns is just about respect for each other. "Recently, I've been feeling more feminine, and so I've adopted she/ her again. But I think what's important is, like, nobody's perfect. Everyone messes up pronouns at some point, especially when people are learning. It's just all about respect."
The usage of she/her pronouns by Demi Lovato comes a year after the singer came out as non-binary during an episode of her podcast. While there she expressed that using they/them pronouns made her truly align with her fluidity.
She said, "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 am still discovering."
This also happened after Lizzo vehemently defended Demi Lovato when a paparazzi used she/her pronouns. At the time Lovato thanked “queen” Lizzo for doing the good deed of helping others to use the “correct pronouns.”
