Pop star Demi Lovato said she’s using the pronouns “she/her” again after using “she/them” last year.
Lovato announced the change during an interview for the weekly “Spout Podcast”, which was made available on Monday.
“I’m such a fluid person when it comes to my gender, my sexuality, my music, my creativity,” she said on the podcast, which began with a discussion of her sonic evolution.
The singer and former Disney star is promoting the August 19 release of her eighth album, which she describes as a return to more traditional rock ‘n’ roll.
Likewise, her revealed pronouns are more traditional, but not without a journey that has taken Lovato to a real place, she pointed out.
Her “they/they” pronouns last year matched her feelings at the time, Lovato told presenter Tamara Dhia.
“Last year my energy was balanced in my masculine and feminine energy,” Lovato, 29, said on the podcast.
At the time, she said, binary toilets didn’t feel right.
“I just felt like a human being,” she said. “And that’s what I’m about. It’s about feeling human at its core.”
“Lately,” she said, “I’ve been feeling more feminine and have adopted her/her again.”
On Instagram, Lovato lists the pronouns they/they/she/her.
Lovato said that pronouns are meant to reflect the fluidity of contemporary identities. People who try but don’t use them properly should back off a bit, the singer said.
“It’s all about respect,” Lovato said. “Nobody is perfect.”
