Janelle Monae Comes Out Of The Closet As Lesbian

share on:

Did gossip website mediatakeout.com label Soulful musician Janelle Monae as lesbian?!

It all happened when a particular handle mentioned Janelle telling her to stop being so soulful rather sexy. What a sexual remark.

The musician replied saying that she is “not for male consumption.”

What comes to your head when you hear such? Well, it appears to us she came out of the closet. Janelle Monae

Although there have been speculations as regards Janelle’s sexuality, so should we now say it’s as clear as a day that Janelle is officially Lesbian?

  1. “Coming out” does not come to mind at all. Regardless of her sexuality, Janelle is clearly stating that her body, her dress, her outward expression is in no way intended for men’s pleasure or approval. She is her own woman with her own agency. She shut him up and shut him down.

  2. this doesn’t have to do with her sexual orientation at all………….. women don’t do things for the pleasure of men, they do it because that’s what they like and that’s what she’s getting at

  3. She may or may not be a lesbian. That has nothing to do with her declaring authority over her own body. She is a strong individual with a lot of personal agency. You don’t have to be a lesbian to have that!

    Also, as a side note, being a huge fan of Janelle Monae, she seems like the kind of person who is beyond labels. (“Categorize me, I defy every label!” she says in Q.U.E.E.N.) I’m really inspired by her strength and individuality. She doesn’t let anyone put her in a box or tell her what to do.

  4. Her sexual preference is her business. She does not have to justify her sexuality to anyone! Janelle is a talented, smart, and beautiful person, inside and out! Focus on what is important people!!!!

  5. You are part of the problem. So if a woman decides she is not an object for male entertainment, she MUST be a lesbian? Get over yourselves. Not everything is about you. SMH!

  6. I get what everyone is saying…but I think if a person has there own style that’s sexy. She is very unique in her style I love it. That being said I think she is a lesbian. I mean if she was straight what’s the big deal in answering that question. She had a political answer saying she wanted both genders to be attracted and support her. Which I find kinda crazy you can’t stop anyone from being attracted to you rather gay or straight, secondly if your music is banging people are going to buy it gay or straight. There are many celebs we support not truly knowing their sexual orientation. It amazes me that celebs are still so closeted when Hollywood seems to welcome them with open arms. Just my opinion. I can’t wait to see her new movie Hidden Figures!
