The singer and actor who identifies as nonbinary has a docuseries on Peacock titled "Unidentified with Demi Lovato" in which they explore what life there may be beyond this planet.
In an interview with Pedestrian, Lovato explained that they do not believe that beings from another planet mean to harm humans.
"I really think that if there was anything out there that would want to do that to us, it would have happened by now," they said. "But I think that we have to stop calling them aliens because aliens is a derogatory term for anything. That's why I like to call them E. T. s!"
The word "alien," when used in reference to immigrants or those who come from other countries, has become controversial and considered dehumanizing by immigration advocates.
Lovato told the publication that the purpose of the series is to give "an understanding of how much we need to take care of our planet and how much we need to learn how to expand our consciousness."
"I think that the world is becoming a more open place," the star added. "Slowly, but surely, I think that we're making progress. And we're slowly getting there. But, you know, any progress is progress!"
That statement is also coming from the girl who got upset that gluten free items are being sold at coffee shops, as if it’s just a diet trend rather than a necessity for some people with gluten intolerance.
I personally just refer to them as beings but getting upset over what we call them is a waste of time lmao.
I’m not sure if it’s a media tactic in getting her name out there since she’s not very popular anymore by saying absurd things or if she really believes what she is saying, but either way, I’m losing brain cells.
We are all losing brain cells everyday so I wouldn't sweat it. :)
@Sawyerblu You said it perfectly.
