Janelle Monae Comes Out As Queer In Rolling Stone Magazine

Published: Thursday 26th Apr 2018 by Sam

Much mystique has surrounded Janelle Monae ever since she burst onto the scene.

For, while her contemporaries used their bodies and tabloid headlines to advance their careers, she’s remained fiercely private and instead let her artistic output do the talking.

However, on the eve of the release of new album ‘Dirty Computer,’ the 32-year-old is shattering the silence on one topic she’s been ever-evasive about – her sexuality.

Indeed, in the past when quizzed on the issue, she’s playfully issued responses such as “I only date androids.”

Not now, though. She’s speaking up and out in the newest issue of Rolling Stone (which she also covers)

Her words below…

Candidly, she said of her romances:

“Being a black queer woman in America, someone who has been in relationships with both men and women. I consider myself to be a free-ass motherf*cker.’”

The Wondaland leader stresses, though, that she’s theoretically been singing openly about her experiences on tracks such as ‘Q.U.E.E.N.’ and ‘Mushrooms & Roses.’

She said: “if you listen to my albums it’s there.”

Still, she fesses to not always feeling certain of how to label herself.

Initially, she says she billed herself as bisexual.  “Yet later I read about pansexuality and I was like, ‘Oh, these are things that I identify with too. I’m open to learning more about myself.”

Her candidness is timely given the theme of the project. For, she explains that ‘Dirty Computer’ holistically speaks to those who society has deemed as having glitches – the bullied, the oppressed, the ostracized. She says “this album is for you. Be proud.”

We’re proud of her for living her truth.

‘Dirty Computer’ arrives tomorrow (April 27th), while its accompanying “emotion movie” premieres on BET and MTV at midnight tonight.

    I once had a fear
    That I thought I was q****
    I put my tongue in some p-ssy
    And made it disappear

    Luckily it was a phase

    Making n-ggas bust in
    69 different ways

    Her comment with the cursing turned me off. Why couldn’t she answer that question without the cursing?
    She seem so upright. I guess not knowing what to identify yourself with, is frustrating.
