Demi Lovato Opens Up About Updating Pronouns to She/Her Again

UPDATE, 8/2/2022: Grammy-nominated pop star Demi Lovato is using she/her pronouns again. 

After quietly updating her Instagram bio earlier this year to include both they/them and she/her pronouns, the singer opened up in a recent interview with the Sprout podcast about the decision to go by she/her. 

"I’ve actually adopted the pronouns of she/her again with me," Lovato told Sprout.

Lovato originally came out as nonbinary last year and listed their pronouns on social media as they/them. 

"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," she said about that decision. "I didn’t feel like a man. 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."

More recently, Lovato says she has been feeling more feminine, which is why she adopted the use of she/her pronouns again. 

"I think what’s important is, like, nobody’s perfect," she continued. "Everyone messes up pronouns at some point, and especially when people are learning, it’s just all about respect."

ORIGINAL, 4/29/2022: Demi Lovato has updated their pronouns on social media.

Though it's unclear when exactly the nonbinary pop star made the update, fans started noticing the changes today (Friday, April 29). As seen in the screenshot below, Demi's Instagram bio now lists both they/them and she/her pronouns in the pronoun section.

In May 2021, Lovato publicly came out as nonbinary with a video detailing her self-discovery process and explaining the pronouns they’d use from that point forward. “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 still am discovering,” the singer wrote.

A year later, though, it appears that Lovato is comfortable with using she/her pronouns in addition to they/them. In fact, she probably hinted at this in a recent Instagram post that reads, “You can call me they, but I’m still daddy’s girl…”

Rumor has it that Lovato has been working on new music for 2022. In January, she shared a post with the caption, “A funeral for my pop music.”

Since then, Lovato has been hinting at going back to their pop-rock roots – something that many artists have been doing as of late. All year long, the singer has been sharing pictures of themself rocking edgier outfits that are fit for a rockstar.

Lovato didn’t make a big deal out of updating their pronouns, but fans will now know that she is comfortable with she/her pronouns as well. For now, little is known about the singer’s new music and when it might be released.

However, it’s worth noting that they are one of the main headliners for the Rock in Rio 2022 festival in September, which is a perfect opportunity for her to promote some new music.
