I don’t know about you, but I’ve always called extraterrestrials aliens. Extraterrestrial is a bit of a mouthful, and they’ve always been called aliens, right? Well, if Demi Lovato can change that, they will. As Demi is saying that calling them aliens is ‘derogatory’.

During an interview with E! News’ The Rundown, Demi responded to a question regarding a fan theory that they have an unreleased song titled ‘Aliens’.

“I do not have a song called ‘Aliens,'” the star shared, before adding that “it sounds cool.” However, Demi then explained if they were to have a song about aliens, it would likely be called something entirely different.

“My fans should know that I do not call them aliens,” they continued. “Because ‘alien’ is a derogatory term for anything, even extraterrestrials, which is why I call them ETs.”

This led to a follow-up question about whether or not a song about extraterrestrials could be in Demi’s future. But nope, if you’re a Demi fan, don’t get your hopes up.

“I feel like Katy Perry already did it,” Demi replied, referring to Katy’s 2011 single E.T. They were then asked if they had already been contemplating this song title, to which they replied, “Not really, but I’m fast on my feet.”

According to Def Noodles, Demi continued to say that there are often misconceptions about ETs, sharing: “I think the ones that bother me are that they’re harmful or that they’ll come and take over the planet. I really think that if there was anything out there that would want to do that to us, it would have happened by now.

“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 ETs!”

Continuing, Demi shared, “So yeah, that’s a little tidbit. A little information that I learned. I think that the world is becoming a more open place. Slowly, but surely, I think we’re making progress. And we’re slowly getting there. But, you know, any progress is progress!”
