The decade's most triggering comedy
Singer Demi Lovato explained in an interview published Tuesday why she decided to go back to using “she/her” pronouns as well as “they/them” back in August 2022 after announcing she identified as non-binary in 2021.
“I constantly had to educate people and explain why I identified with those pronouns,” Lovato shared, per Page Six. “It was absolutely exhausting.”
“I just got tired,” she added. “But for that very reason I know that it is important to continue spreading the word.”

The “Sober” hitmaker previously talked about the decision to go back to identifying as “she/her” in 2022 and said it was because she had been feeling more of the feminine vibe at the time.
“Yeah, so, they/them is, um, I’ve actually adopted the pronouns of she/her again with me,” the “Heart Attack” hitmaker said during an interview in August 2022. “So for me, I’m such a fluid person that I don’t really… I don’t find that I am… I felt like, especially last year, my energy was balanced and my masculine and feminine energy so that 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 feel necessarily like a woman.”
“I didn’t feel like a man,” she added. “I just felt like a human. And that’s what they/them is about for me. it’s just about like feeling human at your core.”
“Recently I’ve been feeling more feminine, and so I’ve adopted she/her again,” the singer continued. “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.”
Shortly after the report surfaced about the change, Lovato sparked confusion about whether she had completely ditched “they/them” as fans noticed the singer had changed her Instagram bio to read “she/her/they/them,” which it is still currently.
