Lizzo Claps Back At Paparazzi Who Misgendered Demi Lovato

Lizzo has corrected a member of the paparazzi when she was asked about Demi Lovato.

The 'Truth Hurts' singer hopped out of a car for a night out with a fluffy pink jacket and platinum blonde hair.

A short clip has been posted on Twitter where you can hear a cameraman ask 'Is that a message to Demi? Should she reach out?'


Lizzo held up a finger in his direction and immediately clapped back and reminded the bloke that Demi is non-binary by replying with 'they'.

That clearly wasn't enough for the paparazzi, who followed his question with 'has her team got in touch'.

The 33-year-old said 'their team' to iterate that Demi goes by they/them pronouns.

The encounter was noticed by Demi, who shared the moment on their Instagram story and said: "@lizzobeeating you f**king queen I love you."

Lovato came out as non-binary in May this year and explained how the they/them pronouns helped them live more authentically.

The 'Dancing With The Devil' artist told their followers on Instagram: "Every day we wake up, we are given another opportunity and chance to be who we want and wish to be.

"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."

Demi said this realisation of being non-binary was a year and a half long process that was fully grasped during 'some healing and self-reflective work'. The singer said 'through this work I have had the revelation that I identify as non-binary'

They have slowly been speaking out about their gender and sexual identity in recent years. They mentioned how intense it was being a member of the Disney family and sticking to the company's very traditional character arcs of chastity, heterosexuality and upholding a clean image.


The 28-year-old added in their statement: "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."
