Demi lovato is using “she/her” pronouns again.
The 29-year-old singer – who notably came out as non-binary one year ago, and at the time said she would prefer to go by “they/them” – said she decided to change her pronouns back because she is “such a fluid person.” Lovato also said her previous adoption of “they / them” was a reflection of her de ella energy at the time, which she said was “balanced in my masculine and feminine energy.”
“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 necessarily feel like a woman,” the ‘ Sorry Not Sorry’ singer shared on the Spout podcast this week. Listen above.

“I didn’t feel like a man. I just felt like a human,” she continued of her feelings last year, saying changing her preferred pronouns to “they/them” initially was, for her, “feeling human at your core. “
“Recently, I’ve been feeling more feminine, and so I’ve adopted ‘she/her’ again,” she continued on the podcast. “But I think what’s important is, like, nobody’s perfect.”
“Everyone messes up pronouns at some point, and especially when people are learning. It’s just all about respect,” she concluded.

It was in May 2021 when the Camp Rock star first announced she would be going by “they/them” pronouns due to being non-binary, an act she said came after “doing some healing and some reflective work.”
At the time, she said on her podcast 4D With Demi Lovato: “I feel 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.”
Recently, however, Lovato’s followers noticed she had changed her Instagram bio to read “they/them/she/her” instead of “they/them,” and in April, she shared a series of photos to Instagram alongside the caption: “You call me they, but I’m still daddy’s girl…”

Lovato has been open about how the initial change of pronouns was “huge” for her, and that her gender identity is part of a journey that is evolving.
“If you misgender me – That’s okay,” she wrote in July last year in a now-deleted Instagram post. “I accidentally misgender myself sometimes! It’s a huge transition to change the pronouns I’ve used for myself my entire life. And it’s difficult to remember sometimes!”
In August 2021, she also spoke out about how she may change her mind when it comes to her gender identity.
“There might be a time where I identify as trans,” Lovato said at the time. “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.”
