Revealing a "very personal" announcement, the Sorry Not Sorry singer said, "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," the 28-year-old continued. "With that said, I'll officially be changing my pronouns to they/them."
Explaining their decision, Lovato added, "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."
Speaking openly to their first podcast episode guest Alok Vaid-Menon -- who is a gender non-conforming writer -- Lovato revealed they are still "learning and coming into myself."
The star also made it clear -- they "don't claim to be an expert."
During their conversation, Lovato told listeners that being non-binary means "you are not exclusively a man nor a woman."
GLAAD's website defines non-binary and/or genderqueer as "terms used by some people who experience their gender identity and/or gender expression as falling outside the categories of man and woman."transgender or transsexual and should only be used if someone self-identifies as non-binary and/or genderqueer.""
"They may define their gender as falling somewhere in between man and woman, or they may define it as wholly different from these terms. The term is not a synonym for transgender or transsexual and should only be used if someone self-identifies as non-binary and/or genderqueer."
Lovato also revealed their desire to be called they/them but understands it might take people some time.
"It would mean the world if people could start identifying me as they/them," the Dancing With The Devil singer told Vaid-Menon.
The star also said they'd "be accepting" if people "slip" but requests that fans make the effort.
"I think it's important because I want to use these 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," Lovato explained.
Demi isn't the only Grammy-nominated singer who has come out as non-binary.
Four-time Grammy winner Sam Smith revealed their non-binary title in 2019.
