One year after declaring that she is non-binary and stating her desire to use the pronouns “they/them,” Demi Lovato has returned to using the pronouns “she/her.”

The 29-year-old “Sorry Not Sorry” singer said she made the choice because she is “such a fluid person” on the “Spout” podcast on Tuesday.

Explaining her earlier decision to change her pronouns to “they/them,” Lovato said last year she “balanced in my masculine and feminine energy.”

“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,” the “Cool for the Summer” singer added. “I didn’t feel like a man. I just felt like a human.”

Lovato noted that choosing to identify with “they/them” pronouns at one point, for her, was about “feeling human at your core.”

“Recently, I’ve been feeling more feminine, and so I’ve adopted ‘she/her’ again,” she reaffirmed. “But I think what’s important is, like, nobody’s perfect.”

The “Heart Attack” singer concluded, “Everyone messes up pronouns at some point, and especially when people are learning. It’s just all about respect.”

After “doing some healing and some healing work,” Lovato initially said she will use “they/them” pronouns in May 2021 when she came out as non-binary.

“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,” she said on her podcast, “4D With Demi Lovato,” at the time.

Lovato said in July 2021 that changing her pronouns had been a “big” change for her.

“If you misgender me – That’s okay,” the pop star wrote in a now-deleted post. “I accidentally misgender myself sometimes! It’s a huge transition to change the pronouns I’ve used for myself my entire life. And it’s difficult to remember sometimes!”
