Demi Lovato has some news for you: it’s rude to call extraterrestrials “aliens.” In a new interview with Pedestrian, the Unidentified with Demi Lovato star says “ETs” is the preferred term. “I really think that if there was anything out there that would want to do that to us, it would have happened by now,” they said in a chat promoting the four-episode series available now on Peacock.
“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! So yeah, that’s a little tidbit. A little information that I learned.” The series, which debuted last month, finds Lovato and her sister, Dallas, teaming up with the singer’s best friend, Matthew Scott Montgomery, searching for signs of extraterrestrial life and speaking to experts about whether we’re alone in the universe.
