Demi Lovato has come out as nonbinary in an emotional statement and video on Wednesday, revealing to fans that their pronouns will now be they/them. 

The "Dancing With The Devil" singer shared a tweet thread noting that they've "spent the majority of my life growing in front of all of you" and that fans have "seen the good, the bad, & everything in between."

"Not only has my life been a journey for myself, I was also living for those on the other side of the cameras," Lovato wrote. "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 nonbinary & will officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward."

The 28-year-old went on to say the move to announce this news "has come after a lot of healing & self-reflective work."

"I’m still learning & coming into myself, & I don’t claim to be an expert or a spokesperson. Sharing this with you now opens another level of vulnerability for me," the singer wrote.

In an accompanying video message, Lovato also shared that they believe "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 am still discovering." 

Nonbinary is defined by GLAAD as a term used by those "who experience their gender identity and/or gender expression as falling outside the categories of man and woman. 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 organization also notes that it has "become increasingly more common for some people who identify as nonbinary to use a singular 'they/them' pronoun. 

Fellow singer Sam Smith came out as nonbinary in 2019, sharing in an intimate interview with actress Jameela Jamil that they feel "like a woman sometimes" and has considered transitioning.
