  • Janelle Monaé Comes Out: I'm a Free-a** Motherf*cker

The singer-actress ― whose hotly-anticipated album, "Dirty Computer", is due out Friday ― told the magazine she identifies with aspects of pansexuality and bisexuality.

'Then later I read about pansexuality and was like, 'Oh, these are things that I identify with too, ' Monae said.

"Being a queer black woman in America - someone who has been in relationships with both men and women -I consider myself to be a free-a$$ motherf***er", she says.

Janelle Monae is pansexual, the singer revealed in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, putting speculation to rest and drawing attention to the concept of attraction to all gender identities.

She also says she hasn't necessarily hidden her sexuality like people are wont to believe. Tessa has in fact been appearing in Janelle's videos since 2015.

Monae also dropped hints about her sexuality in accompanying videos for such songs as "Mushrooms and Roses" and "Q.U.E.E.N", which featured Monae's rumored real-life love interest Tessa Thompson (of Creed fame) as the titular Mary, the object of Monae's affection.




'This album is for you. "This album is for you".

'Through my experiences, I hope people are seen and heard, ' she said.

The Stranger Things and Riverdale actress came out as bisexual in May of past year in a tweet and admitted that while she is officially Out to the world, it's not something she comfortable with candidly talking about.

By publicly identifying herself as a queer black woman, Monáe knows she's in a unique position to speak to minority communities who don't easily have access to role models like herself.

"I thought I would dedicate today in the spirit of being visible to share my transition with all of you", the 27-year-old revealed.

While the Wondaland Arts Society CEO initially identified as bisexual, she discovered a more apt term through further research. A pansexual could be open to someone who is male, female, transgender, intersex, or agendered/genderqueer.
