Demi Lovato shared that they’re so “fluid” they might one day identify as trans.
“There might be a time where I identify as trans. I don’t know what this looks like for me. There might be a time where I identify as non-binary and gender-nonconforming my entire life,” Lovato shared.
“Or maybe there’s a period of time when I get older that I identify as a woman, I don’t know what that looks like, but for me, in this moment right now, this is how I identify.”
The Cool for the Summer singer, 29, credited ending the engagement to Max Ehrich as allowing them to stand on their “own two feet without needing someone else to validate” them or make them “feel accepted.”
“And when I said goodbye to that relationship, I also said goodbye to everything that was holding me back from being my most authentic self.”
The singer and actor came out as pansexual earlier this year and then in May said they were non-binary.
Lovato said they felt they had to conceal who they really were while in a heterosexual relationship with Ehrich.
“I met someone and I got into this straight relationship, and that was great,” they explained, “but that led me to ignoring all the parts of myself that I didn’t think were digestible for my partner at the time, who ended up becoming my fiancé.”
