Janelle completed her look with gold and silver rings and red lipstick.

My mother was a janitor, both my fathers, my biological father and my stepfather, were custodians, sanitation workers, post-office workers. For me, I try to say something as much as possible, say something that means something to other people outside of myself. Sometimes I don’t. Tonight I am happy to be part of this theme and happy to be with Marc Jacobs.” If you missed it, check out Janelle‘s tulle and feathered dress from last year’s Met Gala.

Tessa Thompson Comes Out As Bisexual, Says She And Rumored GF Janelle Monae "Love Each Other Deeply"

Yay! Tessa Thompson is finally out! Though not all the rumors are officially confirmed… yet. The Thor Ragnarok star, who is also rumored to be coming out as Marvel movies' first LGBT superhero, gave an interview with Net-A-Porter out Friday where she was candid but careful.

The Thor Ragnarok star, who is also rumored to be coming out as Marvel movies' first LGBT superhero, gave an interview with Net-A-Porter out Friday where she was candid but careful. When the subject of rumored girlfriend Janelle Monae was broached, Tessa was quick to gush about the innovative star. Related: Janelle Came Out As Pansexual In April On Janelle's visual album Dirty Computer, in which the two play lovers (And also androids? You just gotta see it.), Tessa says: "Isn't it such a good record? I am so proud to have been involved. I get text messages from friends that are like, ‘Would you please let Janelle know I came out to my family because of her?' I think that work is really helping people and probably saving some lives." But what about her own life? For months people have assumed she and Janelle were dating, and that Make Me Feel video felt like a coming-out party. Well, Tessa is not ready to confirm their couple status, but it's for a good reason: "It's tricky, because Janelle and I are just really private people and we're both trying to navigate how you reconcile wanting to have that privacy and space, and also wanting to use your platform and influence." That's understandable. One thing Tessa is completely unafraid of discussing? Her own bisexuality: "I can take things for granted because of my family – it's so free and you can be anything that you want to be. I'm attracted to men and also to women. If I bring a woman home, [or] a man, we don't even have to have the discussion." How great! It definitely sounds like the concerns are more with Janelle? Overcoming sexual anxiety is a clear theme in Dirty Computer, that's for sure. Related: Usher Was Reportedly Drooling Over Tessa At The Black Panther Premiere Tessa doesn't go so far as that, but she does explain her trepidation about dating confirmation a bit more: "That was something I was conscientious of in terms of this declaration around Janelle and myself. I want everyone else to have that freedom and support that I have from my loved ones. But so many people don't. So, do I have a responsibility to talk about that? Do I have a responsibility to say in a public space that this is my person?" "My person." We LOVE that. And what she says next is frankly all the confirmation we need: "We love each other deeply. We're so close, we vibrate on the same frequency. If people want to speculate about what we are, that's okay. It doesn't bother me." Whew! So glad she said that because we are going to speculate THA FUCK out of these two forever! LOLz! Oh, btw, if you haven't seen it, definitely take the time to watch Tessa and Janelle in Dirty Computer (below)! [Image via Dave Starbuck/Future Image/FayesVision/WENN.].....»»

Janelle Monae Lusts After All Genders

After almost eight years I’m still trying to figure out why Janelle Monae’s name was featured on Fun.’s We Are Young single but now there are bigger fish to fry when it comes to this mysterious lady of a million hairdos that signal any offer of penetration by any man is no longer welcome. Her […] The post Janelle Monae Lusts After All Genders appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. After almost eight years I’m still trying to figure out why Janelle Monae’s name was featured on Fun.’s We Are Young single but now there are bigger fish to fry when it comes to this mysterious lady of a million hairdos that signal any offer of penetration by any man is no longer welcome. Her sexuality has always been just as questionable as the nature of her true gender. She’s attractive if you’re into women who look like Thailand ladyboys. She’s pint size and may just be hiding a penis. But instead of leaving all of us on a perpetual cliffhanger about who makes her hard or moist, she did confirm that’s she’s pansexual. Which is the term for basically a person taking whatever they can get sexually and are willing to sleep with anything that shows a reciprocal interest. “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 motherf—ker,” she told Rolling Stone in a revealing interview. The songstress, 32, whose latest album, “Dirty Computer,” comes out Friday, said she initially identified as bisexual, but after further research, settled on pansexual. It’s defined as being attracted to all kinds of people not based on gender identity or sexual orientation. “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,” she added. For years, whenever the Kansas City native was asked about her dating life, Monae would say, “I only date androids.” Janelle is what all individuals of victimhood aspire to be. She’s black, a woman, and gay. It doesn’t get much better than that. She’s a made woman and theoretically untouchable since she’s in so many protected classes all at the same time. One woman shouldn’t be allowed to wield all that power. Imagine attempting to argue a dissenting opinion on any issue with her to only be labeled a racist, sexist, misogynistic homophobe. Fatality finisher. She’d win every debate if she ran for president. 2020 is looking like the year of zoot suits with oversized bow ties, pin up girl hairstyles, and free finger waves for all.

After hitting the red carpet, the 32-year-old recording artist and actress took the stage on music’s big night held at Madison Square Garden on Sunday (January 28) in New York City. “Tonight, I am proud to stand in solidarity as not just an artist, but a young woman, with my fellow sisters in this room who make up the music industry – artists, writers, assistants, publicists, CEOs, producers, engineers, and women from all sectors of the business,” she told the crowd. “We are also daughters, wives, mothers, sisters, and human beings. To those who would dare try and silence us, we offer you two words: #Timesup. We say Time’s Up for pay inequality, discrimination or harassment of any kind, and the abuse of power.” “We come in peace, but we mean business,” she added. “It’s not just going on in Hollywood, or in Washington, it’s right here in our industry as well. And just as we have the power to shape culture, we also have the power to undo the culture that does not serve us well. So, let’s work together, women and men, as a united music industry committed to creating more safe work environments, equal pay, and access for all women.” Janelle‘s speech was followed by a moving performance of Kesha’s “Praying.” 25+ pictures inside of Janelle Monae at the event….....»»

Here’s what the entertainer had to share with the mag… On celebrities being told to stay in their lane: “You strip away the makeup, the costumes, and everything you know about Janelle Monáe the artist, and I’m still the African-American, queer woman who grew up with poor, working-class parents. When I walk off a stage, I have to deal with these confrontations. I have to deal with being afraid for my family.” On the risk of living openly and freely: “There’s lots of fears that I have about just living openly and freely and criticizing those who are in the position of power. You just never know. You never know what could happen when you are outspoken. It’s a risk. It’s a risk that I’ve prayed on and I’m willing to take.” On how results of the presidential election affected her ability to create: “I felt it was a direct attack on us, on black women, on women, on women’s rights, on the LGBTQIA community, on poor folks. I felt like it was a direct attack saying, ‘You’re not important. You’re not valuable and we’re going to make laws and regulations that make it official and make it legal for us to devalue you and treat you like second-class citizens or worse.’ I got to the point where I stopped recording because I was just like, ‘I’m going to make an angry album.’” For more from Janelle, visit Allure.com......»»
