The 'Stone Cold' singer has turned 29 this Friday and took the opportunity to share more about herself with her fans. Demi Lovato, who's just revealed that she identifies as a non-binary with they/them pronouns, talks about what else she's identified as in the past with 19th Represents Summit. She's especially excited sharing how being a non-binary allows her to feel more expressive.
"Being nonbinary, what that means... is that I'm so much more than the binary of man and woman," Demi shared.
"And that we are all so much more if we allow ourselves the ability to look within ourselves and challenge that binary that we've grown up living in."
However, it wasn't easy for her to come out about it to the public because she feared being viewed as someone hopping on the bandwagon. She did not want people to see her as someone trying to be relevant.
"I was very nervous in the beginning to come out as nonbinary because I didn't want people to think it was inauthentic," she shared.
"I just wanted people to see what coming out as nonbinary meant to my healing process."
A genderfluid icon, Demi admits that she might identify as something else from time to time, depending on how she's truly feeling from the inside. The 'Heart Attack' singer said, "There might be a time where I identify as trans... there might be a time where I identify as nonbinary and gender nonconforming my entire life."
"Or maybe there's a period of time when I get older that I identify as a woman," she continued. "I have a feeling that it's not going to ever go back to one way or the other,"
"But I just, it's about keeping it open and free and just I'm a very fluid person, and so that goes with how I express myself as well."
Demi has also asked his fans to use the right pronoun for her, and shared, "It’s important to me that you try, but if you make a mistake, it’s okay."
