Demi Lovato explains why she changed her pronouns back to she/her

By Steve Hopkins

Demi Lovato has opened up about why she changed her pronouns from they/them back to she/her.

The 30-year-old singer re-adopted she/her pronouns back in 2022 after coming out as non-binary in May 2021.

In a recent interview with GQ Hype Spain, the ‘Still Alive’ singer said she grew tired of having to explain her gender identity.

The publication said Lovato opted to use she/her pronouns for the article, which was published on June 13th.

Speaking on the Spout Podcast about her pronoun shift, Lovato explained: “So for me, I’m such a fluid person that I don’t really and I don’t find that I am… I felt like, especially last year, my energy was balanced and my masculine and feminine energy so that 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.

She continued, “I didn’t feel like a man. I just felt like a human. And that’s what they/them is about.

“For me, it’s just about feeling human at your core. Recently I’ve been feeling more feminine so I’ve adopted she/her again.”

Talking to GQ, Lovato expanded on her decision, expressing her frustration at having to constantly educate people and explain “why I identified with those pronouns”.

She said, “It was absolutely exhausting. And that is one of the reasons that have led me to also feel comfortable with the feminine pronoun. I just got tired.”

She added, “But that’s why I know that it’s important to continue spreading the word.”
