NEW YORK -- Pop star Demi Lovato on Wednesday said that they are non-binary and would start using the pronouns they/them, saying "this has come after a lot of healing and self-reflective work."

"I'm still learning & 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," wrote the singer -- whose music fame exploded after they worked as a Disney Channel actor -- on social media.

"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."
