Demi Lovato American singer and writer has disclosed the reason she cut off her hair.
Speaking to Jane Fonda during an episode of 4D with Demi Lovato podcast, the 28-year-old singer, who recently came out as non-binary, said they wanted to shed all gender norms that were imposed while growing up as a female. “The reasoning behind me cutting my hair off was because I was shedding all of the gender norms that have been placed on me growing up female in this world,” they were quoted as saying by The Independent.
The singer said they yearned to break away from the mold of a “sexy pop star” to find freedom. “I just always found that men were at the root of pushing their agendas on me to be a sexy pop star, to whatever would make other people the most money. And I had to break that mold because I had to find the freedom for myself in order to survive, to live.”
After appearing on the children’s television series Barney & Friends, Lovato rose to prominence for her role as Mitchie Torres in the musical television film Camp Rock (2008)
