“I like to call them ETs!”

Pop star Demi Lovato has said that we should stop referring to extraterrestrials as aliens because it is a derogatory term.

The 29-year-old’s comments come after the release of a new four-part documentary series, titled Unidentified with Demi Lovato, in which they embark on a journey to uncover the truth about UFOs.

Speaking to Pedestrian TV, Demi 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.

“I think that the world is becoming a more open place. Slowly, but surely, I think that we’re making progress. And we’re slowly getting there. But, you know, any progress is progress.”

The documentary follows Demi, who claims to have had an encounter with a UFO in the past, on a road trip with their sister Dallas and best friend Matthew Scott, as they seek to answer some of the biggest questions regarding life on other planets.

The singer said “something happened” in every city they went to, but it wasn’t all extraterrestrial – some of it was paranormal.

“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,” they said.

Demi also said they have believed in UFOs their entire life and gets upset about people’s misconceptions towards our intergalactic neighbours.

“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.”

Demi went on to say they believed they had made contact with extraterrestrials through meditation.

“I have a belief that you can make contact, just as easy as I did if you were to meditate and expand your consciousness and work towards enlightenment. I believe that is the quickest way to be able to see something or meet something.”
