Demi Lovato starts the podcast saying, “Living in the fourth dimension means existing consciously in both time and space, but for me it means having conversations that transcend the typical discourse. I want to take this moment to share something very personal with you.” They add, “Over the past year and a half , I’ve been doing some healing and self-reflective work and through this work I’ve had the revelation that I identify as non-binary. With that said, I’ll officially be changing my pronouns to they/them. I feel 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 “Heart Attack” singer also gave a disclaimer claiming that they are not any expert, but they are still learning and coming into themself. Back in 2018, Lovato almost lost her life due to drug overdose. They even spoke about this topic saying, “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, or this or that, or even fans that wanted me to be the sexy, feminine pop star in the leotard and look a certain way.”

However, we often see people confusing someone’s gender. This recently happened when Shawn Mendes accidentally represented Sam Smith as he/him instead of they/them in iHeartRadio Jingle Ball. The “I Wonder” singer apologized to the “Dancing With A Stranger” singer openly on his Instagram story, and Sam Smith too accepted his apology.

Upon mispronouncing the genders, Demi Lovato said, “I will also be accepting if people slip and say her/she because I know that being in my position is going to take a while for people to get used to. I just want them to be making the effort. I think it’s important because I want to use pronouns that feel right to me. I also just don’t want people to be so afraid of messing up that they don’t try to use them.”

When asked about the backlashes they are gonna receive after coming out, they said, “I could leave my career today. I’m still going to identify as non-binary tomorrow. For the first time in my life, I’m putting my well-being over my career. That’s the difference in somebody I guess doing something for attention and like versus speaking your truth. I know that not everybody is going to love that this is me and this is my truth.”

Back in July 2020, Demi got engaged to actor/singer Max Ehrich, but it just lasted for two months. On this, they said, “Got engaged to a dude, and I was like okay maybe this is it you know, and it still didn’t feel right and I knew when things didn’t work out, I knew why it didn’t feel right. It’s because I wasn’t being myself.”

For people who don’t know what non-binary is, Alok said, “We are people who have existed for thousands of years who actually experience ourselves outside of the idea of man or woman.”

Demi also shared a glimpse of this podcast to their Instagram with a long caption that reads, “4D With Demi Lovato. Every day we wake up, we are given another opportunity and chance to be who we want and 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, and everything in between. Not only has my life been a journey for myself, but I was also living for those on the other side of the cameras.

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 and will officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward 💖 This has come after a lot of healing and self-reflective work.

I’m still learning and coming into myself, and I don’t claim to be an expert or a spokesperson. Sharing this with you now opens another level of vulnerability for me. 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 and know I am sending so much love your way xoxo.”

After they came out, Anthony Allen Ramos from GLAAD released a statement and said, “Demi Lovato has always been one of the loudest and proudest advocates for LGBTQ people and issues. In sharing their story today, they will educate countless people around the world and reach other non-binary people with a message of pride.”

Well we are proud of Demi lovato for finally embracing who they truly are. What do you think and do let us know?
