Last week, singer and actor Demi Lovato announced the creation of a new podcast, titled 4D with Demi Lovato. This podcast, according to Lovato, will focus on “what’s on my heart and in my mind through conversations with very special guests. We’ll dive into identify, creativity, social movements; we’ll explore questions about our universe, our communities and ourselves. No matter who you are, how you identify, or what you believe, we should all be living life in 4D.” With a new reveal about their personal life today, Lovato and their guests will have plenty to talk about.
In a post on their Instagram, Lovato came out as a non-binary individual, identifying as neither male nor female, and will begin using they/them pronouns.
“Every day we wake up, we are given another opportunity and chance to be who we want and wish to be,” Lovato said in their post. “I’ve spent the majority of my life growing in front of all of you… you’ve seen the good, the bad, and 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.”
“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 non-binary and will officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward. This has come after a lot of healing and self-reflective work. I’m still learning and coming into myself, and I don’t claim to be an expert or a spokesperson. Sharing this with you now opens another level of vulnerability for me. I’m doing this for those out there that haven’t been able to share who they truly are with their loved ones.”
Lovato discusses their coming out on the first episode of 4D, which just released today, with writer, performer, and public speaker Alok Vaid-Menon. According to Lovato, their discussion will focus on “identity at large, but also take time to personally reflect on how I came into my truth so that we, like many others, are able to live our lives authentically.”
