Demi Lovato says she’s using ‘she/her’ pronouns again


Pop star Demi Lovato said she is using the pronouns “she/her” again after using “they/them” last year.

Lovato announced the change during an interview for the weekly “Spout Podcast,” which was made available Monday.

“I’m such a fluid person when it comes to my gender, my sexuality, my music, my creativity,” she said on the podcast that began with a discussion about her sonic evolution.

The singer and former Disney star is promoting the Aug. 19 release her eighth album, which she described as a return to more traditional rock ‘n’ roll.

Likewise, her revealed pronouns are more traditional, but not without a journey that brought Lovato to a genuine place, she indicated.

Her “they/them” pronouns last year were apropos of the way she felt at the time, Lovato told host Tamara Dhia.

“Last year, my energy was balanced in my masculine and feminine energy,” Demi Lovato, 29, said on the podcast.

“I just felt like a human,” she said. “And that’s what they/them is about for me. It’s about, like, feeling human at your core.”


“Recently,” she said, “I’ve been feeling more feminine, and so I’ve adopted she/her again.”

On Instagram, Lovato lists the pronouns they/them/she/her.

Lovato said pronouns are meant to reflect the fluidity of contemporary identities. People who try but fail to use them properly should be cut some slack, the singer said.

“It’s just all about respect,” Lovato said. “Nobody’s perfect.”

Lovato now uses both “they” and “she” pronouns, according to her Instagram account. She has also said she identifies as both queer and pansexual.
It’s not uncommon for nonbinary people to use gendered pronouns or interchange pronouns: Singer Janelle Monae recently came out as nonbinary and said they would continue to use “she” pronouns in addition to “they.”

Lovato also shared she will be embracing the rock-heavy sound that helped launch her career on her upcoming eighth studio album, “Holy Fvck,” to be released Aug. 19.

Detailing her new music’s lyrics, Demi Lovato said they are inspired by the trials and tribulations of her own life — something we’ve already gotten a taste of in her new song “Skin Of My Teeth” which makes references to her overdose, with lyrics like “Demi leaves rehab again/ When is this shit gonna end?”
