Demi Lovato has opened up about embracing their masculine side.
The singer, who recently came out as non-binary, and who also has spoken openly about identifying as pansexual, made the comments on the latest episode of their podcast while chatting about how their MMA training has helped them on their ‘journey’.
They said: “I felt like I was embracing my masculine side when I was training.

“I was able to set foot into my masculinity more.”
Lovato announced they would officially be changing their pronouns to they/them last month.
Taking to Instagram at the time, they said: “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.
“Please keep living in your truths and know I am sending so much love your way xox.”
Lovato cut their hair earlier this year in an attempt to ‘free’ themselves from gender norms.
While appearing on The Drew Barrymore Show, they said: “I was so preoccupied trying to be the sexy feminine pop star that I just ignored who I am.
“I cut my hair because I just wanted to free myself of all of the gender and sexuality norms that were placed on me as a Christian in the South.”
They went on to reveal that chopping their long locks made them feel ‘liberated,’ adding: “When I cut my hair, I felt so liberated because I wasn’t subscribing to an ideal or a belief placed upon me to be something that I’m not.”
