Pop Star Demi Lovato Comes Out As Non-Binary
On Wednesday morning, Demi Lovato, pop star, actor, and famous sibling to basement-dwelling Poot, that is definitely not just the singer depicted in an extremely unflattering photo …
… revealed that they are "proud" to be nonbinary and use they/them pronouns, a “very personal” revelation that they say they came after a long period of reflection and introspection.
“Over the past year and a half I've been doing some healing and self-reflective work,” Lovato explained in a teaser for their new podcast, 4D posted to the artist's social media pages. "And through this work, I've had the revelation that I identify as nonbinary. With that said, I'll be officially changing my pronouns to they/them."
Although Lovato noted that they are “still learning & coming into myself” and “don't claim to be an expert or a spokesperson,” for the nonbinary community, they said coming out best represents who they are. "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 former Disney Channel star explained. "I'm doing this for those out there that haven't been able to share who they truly are with their loved ones. Please keep living in your truths & know I am sending so much love your way."
Earlier this year, Lovato also opened up about being pansexual, speaking candidly about their “fluidity” while appearing on the official podcast of both every douchebag who ghosted you after three Tinder dates and your anti-vaxxer aunt -- The Joe Rogan Experience.“I also don't know if I'm going to end up with a guy, so I can't really see myself maybe getting pregnant,” the singer said, referencing breaking off their engagement with Max Ehrich last year. “I'm so fluid now — and a part of the reason why I am so fluid is because I was super closeted off.”
Lovato then continued, gushing about their pride for being a part of the LGBTQAI+ community. "I heard someone call the LGBTQIA+ community the 'alphabet mafia,' and I was like, 'That's it. That's what I'm going with,'" they told Rogan. "I’m part of the alphabet mafia and proud."
So folks, take it from Lovato and their extremely cliche song titles – You should always be “Sorry Not Sorry” for being who you are, because “I Love Me” is always enough.
