Demi Lovato Applauds 'Queen' Lizzo For Correcting Paparazzo's Gender Mistake

This week, Lizzo upheld her reputation as a champion of self-love by ensuring that Demi Lovato is not misgender.

Lizzo discussed her plans for the 2021 Jazz Fest in New Orleans, where she is scheduled to perform this fall, in a short video posted to Twitter on Thursday.

When asked by a reporter if she plans to share the stage with Lovato, who is also on the lineup for the October event, the three-time Grammy winner made it clear that her pal is nonbinary.

After the person repeatedly misgendered Lovato by using the pronouns “she” and “her,” Lizzo responded with a polite and unflinching correction.

“Demi prefers to be addressed as ‘they,'” she explained.

When Lovato found out about the exchange, they expressed their appreciation by posting the video to their Instagram stories.

“You fucking queen, I love you,” Lovato wrote, as seen in a screenshot obtained by People.

The video had received over 900,000 views as of Friday afternoon, thanks to coverage in Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, and other publications.

Lovato announced her gender identity as nonbinary in May, telling fans on Instagram that the term “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.”

“I’m doing this for those out there who haven’t been able to share who they truly are with their loved ones,” the “Heart Attack” singer wrote. “Please keep living in your truths and know I am sending you so much love.”

Lovato appears to have found a new love.

On Wednesday, the pop star was photographed holding hands with Noah Cyrus at the premiere event for “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” which was held at Six Flags Magic Mountain near Los Angeles. The pair collaborated on the song “Easy,” which appears on Lovato’s latest album, “Dancing with the Devil... The Art of Starting Over.”
