Janelle Monae Opens Up About Her Sexuality, Drops "Electric Lady" Ft. Solange
Janelle Monae opened up a bit about her sexuality while promoting her new album Electric Lady. Apparently, everyone but us was wondering if she prefers lady parts over man meat. Check out her answer inside, plus her new "Electric Lady Remix" with Solange and others...
Fab chick & CoverGirl spokeswoman Janelle Monae rolled to Sway in the Morning at Sirius XM's Shade 45 this week. And the co-hosts wanted to get all in her business about her personal preferences--men or women?
Janelle kept it vague saying:
"Women are amazing...and so are guys....
There's nothing wrong with being bisexual, there's nothing wrong with being lesbian or gay. I am an advocate. i have friends who are in same sex relationships and I feel love has no sexual orientation. Live has no religious belief. Love is the purest and most important thing we can possess for ourselves and for others."
When Sway asked point blank if she dates men or women:
"I keep my personal life very much to myself. I want everybody to focus on my music. I also don't want to let anybody down. I want women to still be attracted to me. Go get my album! I want men to still be attracted to me so I have to be political in this. So I can't really tell y'all!"
Gotta love her. Peep the video from the interview below:
And now that her Electric Lady album is out (with a special double disc at Target), a new 90's style TLC inspired remix of her title track hit the net ft. Solange, Bog Boi and CeeLo. It appears on the special edition of the album that has 4 extra songs. Check it out below:
Speaking of Solange, she just put out a short vid (that's just her standing in a Solange-style outfit with music playing in the background) to promote her new label, Saint Records:
This is the first little teaser we've gotten for her upcoming project.
