Outspoken social justice advocate and singer Demi Lovato has decided to reverse her decision back in 2021 to identify with “They/Them” pronouns and is switching back to the original she/her.
The Disney star made the announcement via a podcast called “Spout.” Unlike her first gender-change announcement, which she put out in a tweet:
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. It’s all about your intention. It’s important to me that you try, but if you make a mistake, it’s okay 😊🙏🏼💞 pic.twitter.com/nd37qvMGqk

The widely controversial pop star, who once called illegal aliens “ETs” in an interview with Pedestrian, because she viewed the term ‘alien’ as derogatory.
This time, Lovato said that more than anything, it was just about “feeling human at the core.”
The formerly drug-addicted star reportedly battled depression when she was in her youth, undergoing several suicidal attempts and enacting several forms of self-harm.
Lovato seemingly believes her continued exploration of pronouns is a step in the positive direction after the trauma she faced as a teenager. Studies have shown, however, that young people who share similar traumatic experiences, such as the ones Demi displayed, are more likely to face gender dysphoria.
Lovato claimed she was “too gay to marry a man right now” in an interview with EW. She also mentioned she was “pansexual” in an interview on the Joe Rogan Podcast in March of 2021. During the same interview, Demi also took a moment to promote her new album “Holy F*ck.”
One thing remains clear, however — Demi’s open, incendiary, and utterly unexplainable behavior shows no sign of coming to a halt. The star again made headlines in June of 2021 when she railed against a local frozen yogurt store for offering low-fat flavors, claiming that it was “extremely hard” to order, according to PEOPLE.
It is unclear whether or not Demi’s fans can expect a new shift in the star’s gender fluidity in the coming days again, but Lovato has openly stated this fluidity helps her “to feel most authentic and true to the person I both know I am and am still discovering.”
