The “Cool For the Summer” singer opened up in a new 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. According to her Instagram account, Lovato uses she/her along with they/them. She also says she views herself as queer and pansexual.
In the same interview, Lovato shared she has been feeling more feminine, which is one of the reasons why she decided to use of these pronouns again.
"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."
"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."
In May 2021, Lovato publicly came out as nonbinary and explained 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 to social media.
The singer is set to release their next album, "Holy F**k" later this month. The track, "Skin of My Teeth," was inspired by Lovato's health challenges after her 2018 overdose.
In the “Sprout” interview, the singer told the host that she was “so proud of” the upcoming album as she was sober throughout its creation.
