Janelle Monae Opens Up About Her Sexual Orientation

It’s official! Janelle Monáe came out as pansexual and a “free-ass motherf*cker” in a new interview. The artist had been giving hints for days, including in her latest videosin promotion of her upcoming album ‘Dirty Computer’ (out April 27).

Rolling Stone reports: “”Being a queer black woman in America,” she says, taking a breath as she comes out, “someone who has been in relationships with both men and women – I consider myself to be a free-ass motherfucker.” She initially identified as bisexual, she clarifies, “but then later I read about pansexuality and was like, ‘Oh, these are things that I identify with too.’ I’m open to learning more about who I am.”

About her relationship with her family, Rolling Stone adds: ‘Monáe grew up in a massive, devoutly Baptist family in Kansas City, Kansas, or as she likes to put it, “I got 50 first cousins!” Not all of them know details of her romantic life, but they have almost certainly seen her wear sheer pants and share a lollipop with Thompson in the “Make Me Feel” video. “I literally do not have time,” she says, laughing, “to hold a town-hall meeting with my big-ass family and be like, ‘Hey, news flash!’ ” She worries that when we visit Kansas City tomorrow, they’ll bring it up: “There are people in my life that love me and they have questions, and I guess when I get there, I’ll have to answer those questions.” ‘

“We Have to Realize Our Power and Our Magic” Janelle Monae Says Women Should Start Witholding Sex

Sista has 0 Tolerance

In the May 2017 issue of Marie Claire Magazine, Monae talks on her thoughts regarding men who aren’t actively fighting for the rights of women.

She enlightens:

Until every man is fighting for our rights, we should consider stopping having sex. I love men. But evil men? I will not tolerate that. You don’t deserve to be in my presence. If you’re going to own this world and this is how you’re going to rule this world, I am not going to contribute anymore until you change it. We have to realize our power and our magic. Because I am all about black-girl magic, even though I’m standing with all women. But this year?

I’d rather have women point of view anyday over any of these superficial ppl on tv/social media telling folks to sleep they way to fame 🙌🙌
