Demi Lovato has made headlines again by reverting back to she/her pronouns after identifying with they/them pronouns since May 2021.

The pop sensation, now 31, first captured the public’s heart as a Disney star and has remained a focal point in both the music industry and social discussions around gender and addiction.

"Every day we wake up, we are given another opportunity & chance to be who we want & wish to be. 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," Lovato shared in a heartfelt Twitter video last year, announcing their then-new non-binary identity.

Check out the video:

The Camp Rock actress stated: "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."

Further elaborating on the subject in August 2022, while promoting her album Holy Fvck, Lovato appeared on the Spout podcast. In an in-depth conversation, she delved into the complexities of her gender identity.

She explained her initial pronoun change as an expression of the "fluidity" she felt in her "gender expression." Lovato said, "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. I just felt like a human."

Now, in a striking update reflected in her Instagram bio, Lovato has reverted back to using she/her pronouns, citing a shift towards feeling more feminine once again.

In her own words, "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." This insight captures the singer’s understanding and forgiving attitude on the topic.

Lovato's open dialogue about gender is only one facet of her commitment to candor. The 'Sorry Not Sorry' singer previously disclosed a life-altering experience — a near-fatal fentanyl overdose in 2018 that resulted in several strokes and a heart attack.

Her song 'Skin Of My Teeth,' featured on the album Holy Fvck, serves as an empowering anthem reflecting her struggle and eventual triumph over adversity.

Fans and followers have been quick to commend Lovato's courageous revelations about gender identity. Whether it's taking a vocal stand on LGBTQ+ rights, addiction recovery, or now her evolving perspective on gender pronouns, Lovato continues to be a beacon of transparency and raw emotional honesty.

Lovato’s public journey provides a significant contribution to the global conversation about gender identity. Her ability to adapt, grow, and share the process is a testament to human resilience and the ever-changing facets of individual identity.
