“They/them/theirs,” Stodden wrote alongside a selfie on Tuesday April 13, sharing their new pronouns. “I don't identify as she or her. I’ve never felt like I ever fit in anywhere. I was bullied horribly in school because I was different. The other girls never understood me. It got so bad that my mom pulled me out of school. And still, I don’t fit in. I never really connected with anyone my age.”

Now, Stodden is owning who they are and ready to show the world. “I wanted the video to tell a story of who I’m becoming and I wanted to shine a light on that,” they exclusively dish to OK!

“The song is very seductive and upbeat so it was important for me to create a visual where I represented someone in power,” they say. “Cause I feel like for so long I’ve just been obviously under the thumb of men, really, especially Hollywood men.”

Stodden made headlines in 2011 when they married actor Doug Hutchison — when they were only 16 years old and the Green Mile star was 50. Despite Stodden and Hutchison’s nearly 35-year age gap, it was the blonde bombshell’s aesthetic and quest for reality TV fame that people ridiculed them for, with Hutchison seemingly getting a pass in the media.

The influencer took their toxic relationship with their ex-husband as well as the ridicule they endured and used it as fuel to drive their art.  

Although Stodden doesn’t identify with any specific gender, they still own their femininity in their new music and accompanying music video. “I just wanted to definitely still have a sexy video and a sexy fun song, but something where I just felt like very high-fem and still in charge,” they tell OK!

“I’ve always wanted to create music and present myself as who I feel like I am, which is high-fem and definitely take charge and just create, they add. “Music is an outlet for me.”  

“For me I’m gender fluid and I don’t feel like I’m exclusive to either gender and just cause I don’t look a certain way, I wear lipstick doesn’t mean I can’t wear the pants too,” they dish. “That’s something that I’m starting to feel more confident in expressing because also I’m kind of free now, I feel more free in my life and I’m taking charge.”
