Non-binary pop singer Demi Lovato has updated their Instagram profile pronouns to include she/her, a year after announcing they/them pronouns, PopBuzz reported.

Lovato came out as non-binary on their podcast "4D with Demi Lovato" in May of last year, and also came out on Instagram, where they specified a use of they/them pronouns. But the update to they/them/she/her was a shift with a much lower profile.

"On Friday (April 29), fans noticed that the 'Cool for the Summer' singer had made a slight adjustment to their Instagram bio, adding a new identifier that reveals Lovato's pronouns are they/them/she/her," detailed iHeart.com.

"It's unclear when they changed their bio, nor has Lovato made any announcement about the change, but fans were quick to spread the news to let others know how to correctly refer to the singer," the article added, before noting that the pop star "has been forgiving of anyone who mistakenly misgenders them, especially given that they have also been open about the fluidity of their identity."

"As long as you keep trying to respect my truth, and as long as I remember my truth, that shift will come naturally. I'm just grateful for your effort in trying to remember what means so much to my healing process," iHeart quoted the recording artist and podcast host as posting.

Outlets report that Lovato has indicated an artistic shift, also, back toward rock from the pop genre.

Lovato, iHeart specified, is "getting ready to release a new rock-centric album that they call their 'absolute best yet.'"
