Demi Lovato, a nonbinary singer, recently talked up about how they identify in an interview with The 19th, according to Entertainment Tonight. Demi noted that just because they presently identify as nonbinary does not guarantee they would always remain so. In May, the 29-year-old came out as nonbinary.

The singer made it clear during the interview that they don't know what the future holds.

"Being non-binary means I'm so much more than the binary of man and woman," Demi stated. "And that we are all so much more if we allow ourselves to look within and challenge the binary that we've grown up living in."

They also stated: "I was first concerned about coming out as non-binary because I didn't want people to believe it was fake. I really wanted people to understand what being non-binary means to my healing journey."

It appears that the end of Demi's engagement to Max Ehrich forced them to reexamine various aspects of their lives.

"I was able to stand on my own two feet without having someone else to affirm or accept me," Demi said during the interview. "And when I said goodbye to that relationship, I said goodbye to everything that was preventing me from being my most true self."

Demi and Max parted in September 2020, which inspired the singer to delve more into their gender identification.

Demi Lovato declared on an episode of the podcast 4D with Demi Lovato that they would be utilizing they/them pronouns going forward.

This latest discovery does not appear to change that, but rather offers the door for Demi to use different pronouns in the future if they believe something else better corresponds with their identity.

Demi's most recent discoveries regarding their identity suggest that they are simply trying to be as adaptable as possible in order to remain true to themselves. "And I have a feeling it's not going to go back to one way or the other," they continued. "Things about keeping it open and free, and I'm a pretty fluid person, and so that goes with how I express myself as well."

Demi extended a shout-out to the folks in their life who have been working hard to get their pronouns perfect in a July Instagram post. Demi shared a meme to demonstrate how they understand how difficult it may be to get pronouns right at first, and how they sometimes misgender themselves.

Demi appears to have a lot of support right now, and we love how open they are about their quest to finding themselves.
