Actress and musician Demi Lovato has quietly added “she/her” to her list of personal pronouns, which include “they/them.”
In 2021, Lovato announced that she is both pansexual and non-binary.
What are the details?
Lovato recently updated her pronouns on her Instagram page to add “she/her” to her previously used pronouns.
Just weeks earlier, the 29-year-old pop star shared an Instagram photo of herself with a caption that read, “You call me they, but I’m still daddy’s girl[.]”
In 2021, Lovato announced her non-binary status, and said, “Over the past year-and-a-half, I’ve been doing some healing and self-reflective work. And through this work, I’ve had the revelation that I identify as non-binary. With that said, I’ll be officially changing my pronouns to they/them.”
She added, “I feel that 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 am still discovering.”
Following her announcement, she said, “If you misgender me – that’s OK. 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!”
“As long as you keep trying to respect my truth, and as long as I remember my truth, that shift will come naturally,” she added. “I’m just grateful for your effort in trying to remember what means so much to my healing process.”
Lovato continued, and acknowledged the fact that pronoun changes might be foreign to some people.
“I felt the need to post this because I often find that the change in pronouns can be confusing for some, and difficult to remember for others,” she explained. “It’s all about your intention. It’s important to me that you try, but if you make a mistake, it’s okay remember that I love you, and to keep going.”
