Demi Lovato attends the Pre-GRAMMY Gala & GRAMMY Salute to Industry Icons Honoring Julie Greenwald and Craig Kallman on February 04, 2023 in Los Angeles, California.

Demi Lovato is “tired” of having to explain to people her pronouns. So she is re-adopting she/her in addition to they/them. The singer-songwriter opened up to GQ Hype Spain about why she decided on the change of pronouns. She announced being non-binary in 2021.

She told the publication, “I constantly had to educate people and explain why I identified with those pronouns. It was absolutely exhausting. I just got tired. But for that very reason I know that it is important to continue spreading the word.” As we previously reported, Lovato, 30, had the “revelation that I identify as non-binary. With that said, I’ll be officially changing my pronouns to they/them after a year and a half of healing and self-reflective work.” At the time, Demi said she felt “Those pronouns best represented 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.”

Lovato also spoke about wishing there were more gender-neutral spaces for both artists and other people alike. “I face this every day,” the singer says. “For example, in public toilets. Having to access the women’s bathroom, even though I don’t completely identify with it. Or it also happens when filling out forms, such as government documents or any other where you have to specify your gender. You only have two options: male and female, and I feel like none of that makes sense to me.” The singer says she saw herself “conditioned to choose a woman because there are no more. I think this has to change. Hopefully with time there will be more options.”

Last May, Lovato added “she/her” back into her Instagram bio alongside “they/them. About two months later, she opened up about the decision. “I’m such a fluid person that … I felt like, especially last year, my energy was balanced in my masculine and feminine energy.” She added that she felt more feminine at the time, so she adopted she/her again. “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.”
