Janelle Monáe Frees Herself as She covers Rolling Stone Magazine



American music star Janelle Monáe reveals details about her private life in the new issue of Rolling Stone, as she finally addresses longstanding rumors about her sexuality.

The singer-actress told the magazine she identifies with aspects of pansexuality and bisexuality, saying:

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-ass motherfu–er. 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.

Janelle also addressed how early in her career she was insecure about living up to impossible showbiz ideals. She says:

It had to do with the fear of being judged. All I saw was that I was supposed to look a certain way coming into this industry, and I felt like I [didn’t] look like a stereotypical black female artist.

Though Janelle didn’t talk to Rolling Stone about her relationship with actress Tessa Thompson, she said she’d love it if her album “Dirty Computer” dropping on Friday, will inspire young listeners who may be struggling to come to terms with their sexuality, too.

I want young girls, young boys, nonbinary, gay, straight, queer people who are having a hard time dealing with their sexuality, dealing with feeling ostracized or bullied for just being their unique selves, to know that I see you. This album is for you. Be proud.

      Next time you see a word you don’t understand, take out your dictionary or even use simple google rather than calling it a work of the devil. Pansexuals are people who are attracted to all humans & are not limited by gender. The word may be new to you but all these people have existed everywhere, including Naija, since the beginning of time. It is funny that anyone is pretending it’s something new.

      We are in the 21st century & you people will not leave us alone with your superstition & closed minds. In fact, the only sin & devilish thing Africans know is homosexuality. The fact that your pastor is scamming you of money or your politicians have chopped all your money so you don’t have good roads or hospitals & the children in your country starve- all those things are not weird ideas from the devil. But someone’s sexuality is. Sure!
