Demi Lovato (29) feels more and more free to do and say what he pleases and this is due in large part to the relief he felt at identifying himself as a person of non-binary gender, which implied in some way denying those labels and conventions culturally associated with the female and male sexes. That is why in recent months we have seen her shoot her first sex scene and throw the cane publicly through Instagram to Natalia Barulich, Maluma’s ex.
She is precisely the one who has unleashed the controversy in the singer’s latest Instagram post, and all for leaving a compliment in the comments. And it is that, you are not going to think that his post has generated controversy because he has a somewhat ‘transparent’ white swimsuit, the reason for the discord was the phrase Natalia wrote to Demi, in which she said “Elle is absolutely brilliant ✨✨✨✨ “.
The two friends are used to exchanging compliments on social networks, because not long ago Demi wrote an “Oh my god” in one of her posts, followed by a story of the same photo tagging Maluma’s ex with the phrase: “@natalia I’m obsessed with you”. To the aforementioned, all this attention does not bother her in the least, because when she saw the singer’s compliment, she replied with an “I adore you”.
Well, now Natalia wanted to return the compliment, but did not imagine the controversy that was going to generate for the pronoun used. She knows that her friend now identifies with the neuter pronouns elle / elles, so she intentionally wanted to write it as she requested, but she has come across many quite ‘brother-in-law’ responses telling her that she had to refer to her with feminine pronouns because she was a woman.
Luckily, there have also been advocates for the singer who have reminded all of these people that Demi identifies as a non-binary person, so these comments are not only out of place but are quite disrespectful of her..
At the moment Demi has not wanted to comment on the matter, since she is enjoying a few days of vacation in the Maldives, where she has celebrated her 29th birthday.
