Gun control-pushing, “Impeach Trump” songstress Demi Lovato claims the word “alien” is a “derogatory term” offensive to extraterrestrial life and suggests people use “ETs” instead.
“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 ETs!” Lovato said in a recent interview with PEDESTRIANtv. “So yeah, that’s a little tidbit. A little information that I learned.”
It remains unclear, however, where exactly Lovato has gotten the “little information” from.
Lovato — who came out as “pansexual” earlier this year, and then in May, declared that she is “non-binary” and uses “they” and “them” pronouns — is currently promoting her new Peacock Original series, Unidentified with Demi Lovato.
In the show, the singer “brings viewers on a road trip alongside friends, family and leading alien experts in search of definitive answers to some of the biggest questions about extraterrestrial life,” according to Peacock’s description of the series.
Ironically, Lovato might want to have a word with Peacock, as the television network uses the word “alien” on its website.
After being asked if there are any common misconceptions about UFOs that bother her, Lovato said people need to drop negative stereotypes.
“I think the ones that bother me are that [aliens] are harmful or that they’ll come and take over the planet,” the Dancing With the Devil singer said.
At the end of the PEDESTRIANtv article, the editor provided a bizarre note, which read, “As per Demi’s guidance, we have refrained from using the A-word in this article as it’s an offensive term, no matter who you’re directing it at. It’s ETs, folks. File that away, please!”
Last month, Lovato claimed that she had a “beautiful and incredible” encounter with aliens at Joshua Tree National Park.
“We went out into the desert in Joshua Tree and I basically saw this blue orb that was about 50 feet away, maybe less, and it was kind of like floating above the ground, just like 10 or 15 feet, and it was kind of keeping its distance from me,” the singer said. “It was a beautiful and incredible experience.”
