Demi Lovato has taken their fascination with space and extraterrestrial life to TV screens as they make discoveries on their Peacock docu-series Unidentified With Demi Lovato. On the show, Demi, their sister Dallas, and their best friend, Matthew Scott Montgomery hit the road to embark on a UFO investigation and discover fascinating theories about extraterrestrial life.

In a recent interview with the Australian outlet Pedestrian.TV to promote their show, Demi opened up about their experience being a "believer" during their investigation.

"I think that if there were beings that could harm us, we would have been gone a long time ago," they told Pedestrian. "I also think that if there are civilizations that are of consciousness in other dimensions, which has given them the technology to be able to travel through space, I think that they are looking for nothing but peaceful encounters and interactions because like I said, if they wanted us gone, we would have been gone a long time ago!"

They also questioned why ETs would want to take over Earth if "we're running it to the ground." I mean...points were made. Demi also explained that using the term "alien" to describe extraterrestrial life is harmful and offensive.

"I think that we have to stop calling them aliens because aliens is a derogatory term for anything," Demi said. "That’s why I like to call them ETs! So yeah, that's a little tidbit. A little information that I learned."

Once fans caught wind of Demi's statement, they naturally took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

There were mixed reactions to Demi's statement online and it even warranted a response from astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, who told TMZ that extraterrestrials allegedly "have no feelings."

Well, if there is life on other planets, Demi is just being considerate and looking out for them.
