Demi Lovato Says They Are Non-Binary, Will Change Pronouns Going Forward

Demi Lovato has announced they identify as non-binary and "are officially changing their pronounces to they/them".

The popstar made the announcement on Twitter, sharing a clip from their new podcast, 4D with Demi Lovato.

"Every day we wake up, we are given another opportunity & chance to be who we want & wish to be," the "Dancing With The Devil" hitmaker wrote. "I've spent the majority of my life growing in front of all of you... you've seen the good, the bad, & everything in between."

"Not only has my life been a journey for myself, I was also living for those on the other side of the cameras," they added. "Today is a day I'm so happy to share more of my life with you all- I am proud to let you know that I identify as non-binary & will officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward."

Lovato went on to say the announcement had "come after a lot of healing & self-reflective work", adding that they are "still learning and coming into myself."

"I'm still learning & coming into myself, & I don't claim to be an expert or a spokesperson," the singer continued. "Sharing this with you now opens another level of vulnerability for me."

Fans were quick to congratulate the star on social media.

The first episode of Lovato's podcast features gender non-conforming performance artist Alok Vaid-Menon.

In the video, the singer said their 2018 overdose happened because they were "ignoring their truth."

"In 2018, when I overdosed, I feel like the reason why that happened was because I was ignoring my truth, and I was suppressing who I really am in order to please stylists or team members, this or that, or even fans that wanted me to be the sexy feminine popstar in a leotard and look a certain way," they explained. "I thought that was what I was supposed to be."

The former Disney star said they now realise it's "more important to live your truth than to ever suppress yourself because that's the type of stuff that happens when you do."
