Demi Lovato is letting the world know what her pronouns are in more ways than one. The singer, who now identifies as they/them and she/her, released her eighth studio album, Holy Fvck, on Friday, August 19, which features 16 tracks. Several of them touch on her recent pronoun change.

For starters, she addressed it on the LP’s first single, “Skin of My Teeth.” She sings, “I’m your son and I’m your daughter/ I’m your mother/ I’m your father/ I’m just a product of the problem.”

In the track “City of Angels,” one of the lyrics is: “You call me they, but I’m still daddy’s girl.”

On “Eat Me” featuring Royal & the Serpent, Lovato reflects on her past image. She sings, “Would you like me better if I was still her?/ Did she make your mouths water?/ I know the part I’ve played before/ I know the s–t that I’ve ignored/ I know the girl that you’ve adored/ She’s dead/ It’s time to f–king mourn.”

On “Help Me,” she could be touching on the backlash she’s received for the way she identifies herself in the public eye. She sings, “Never satisfied with my explanation/Hey!/ What’s with your desperate fasciation/Hey!/ Thank you for your useless information.”

Back In May, Lovato took to her Instagram bio to subtly update her pronouns from “they/them” to “they/them/she/her.” Then, in early August, she explained her reasoning for the update after a year of solely wanting to be referred to by they/them pronouns.

“For me, I’m such a fluid person that … I felt like, especially last year, my energy was balanced in my masculine and feminine energy so that when I was faced with the choice of walking into a bathroom and it said ‘women’ and ‘men,’ I didn’t feel like there was a bathroom for me because I didn’t feel necessarily like a woman,” Lovato recently said on the Spout podcast. “I didn’t feel like a man. I just felt like a human.”

She continued, “That’s what they/them is about for me. It’s just about, like, feeling human at your core. Recently, I’ve been feeling more feminine, and so I’ve adopted she/her again. But I think what’s important is, like, nobody’s perfect. Everyone messes up pronouns at some point, and especially when people are learning. It’s just all about respect.”

Lovato addresses a variety of topics on the new LP, some dealing with death, sex, drugs, lust and falling in love.
