Demi Lovato Explains Why She’s Using She/Her Pronouns Again

Musician Demi Lovato recently said she is changing her pronouns again after using “they/them” last year. She will now use “she/her.”

The announcement came during an interview for the weekly “Spout Podcast.”

“I’m such a fluid person when it comes to my gender, my sexuality, my music, my creativity,” Lovato said. She also explained to host Tamara Dhia that the “they/them” pronouns she used last year were appropriate to how she felt at the time.

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

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

Lovato said pronouns are meant to reflect the fluidity of one’s identity. People who try but fail to use them properly should get a break, the singer said.

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

Lovato has an album coming out on August 19 — her eighth album. She says this record is a return to traditional rock ‘n’ roll music. Called “Holy F*ck” some of the songs, in particular “Skin of My Teeth” were inspired by Lovato’s health issues after she suffered a drug overdose in 2018 and struggled with brain damage. She said she was sober throughout the creation of this album and “so proud” of herself.
