Singer and actress Demi Lovato says that people ought not to use the term "aliens" when referring to extraterrestrials out of fear of offending the otherworldly space beings, Page Six reported.
What are the details?
Lovato, 29, made the remarks during a recent interview with Pedestrian about her Peacock special, "Unidentified with Demi Lovato."
"Unidentified," according to Page Six, "seeks to 'uncover the truth about the UFO phenomena.'"
During her sit-down with Pedestrian, Lovato said, "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! So yeah, that's a little tidbit. A little information that I learned."
She also added that she believes aliens — extraterrestrials — are likely not harmful and have no interest in taking over Earth.
"I really think that if there was anything out there that would want to do that to us, it would have happened by now," Lovato insisted.
As Page Six pointed out, the term "alien" comes from the Old French word "alien" and the Latin term "alienus" — both of which mean "strange" or "foreign."
Elsewhere during the interview, Lovato said that it just made sense for her to make a foray into creating her own reality production around spotting extraterrestrials.
"Well, I have been a believer my whole life," she said. "And I just thought, you know, I'm in a position in my career right now where I'm dipping my toes into a lot of different waters. And this was just kind of a natural next step. I wanted to film everything that goes down when I go and search for these UFOs so that my fans can come along for the ride."
During a recent interview with E! News, Lovato said that she had a "beautiful and incredible experience" with a being she believed to be of extraterrestrial nature.
“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," Lovato explained.
"It definitely changed the way that you see the world. You have an inkling and then all of a sudden that inkling is confirmed. It changes your reality, for sure," the entertainer said.
Lovato added that she's had a bevy of recent experiences with what she assumes are aliens and UFOs, prompting her to open her mind more to the possible existence of extraterrestrials.
"I would say I'm definitely a lot less of a skeptic than I was before," she admitted.
