Demi Lovato Explained Which Pronouns She Now Prefers

It's been more than a year since the singer first shared she identifies as non-binary.

In a recent episode of the Spout podcast, Demi Lovato updated the audience on her preferred pronouns. The singer, previously opting for they/them, has returned to using she/her pronouns. "I've actually adopted the pronouns of she/her again," Lovato told host Tamara Dhia. Explaining her fluidity, Lovato shared that her energy last year was a balance of masculine and feminine, making traditional gendered spaces feel restrictive. "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." However, her feelings have shifted recently. "Recently, I've been feeling more feminine, and so I've adopted she/her again," she stated. Lovato emphasized the importance of respect in navigating pronoun usage, acknowledging that everyone makes mistakes, particularly during learning processes. This update follows Lovato's previous announcement over a year ago on her own podcast, 4D with Demi Lovato, where she initially identified as non-binary and began using they/them pronouns. "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...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."

Throughout her journey of self-discovery, Demi Lovato has been candid about the transition to new pronoun usage. In a now-removed Instagram post from July 2021, she expressed understanding towards those who unintentionally misgender her, emphasizing their efforts in respecting her truth. "The natural shift will occur as long as you continue to respect my truth and I remember my own truth," she wrote. "Your intention is what matters most to me. It's crucial for me that you make an effort, but it's alright if you slip up." Presently, she utilizes she/her pronouns, as revealed on her podcast. However, both they/them and she/her are listed as her preferred pronouns on her Instagram bio.
