Janelle Monae: I’m No Lesbian

Published

on

Eccentric singer Janelle Monae is shooting down rumors about her sexuality after a fuss was made over the lyrics to a couple of songs on her new album, Electric Lady.

On “Givin Em What They Love”, Monae sings about a woman propositioning her for sex in a lobby. She also teases lesbianism on the tune “Q.U.E.E.N.” singing, “Am I a freak because I love watching Mary?” and “Hey sister am I good enough for your heaven?”

Asked if she’s using her music as a platform for coming out as some bloggers have speculated, Monae seemed oblivious to the gossip. “I actually have never heard that,” Monae told Pride Source on Thursday. “This is the first time I’m hearing it. But I will say that a lot of my work always comes from an authoritative stance, so it may not be about me; it may just be about a story, or something that I’ve witnessed, or my imagination. You just never know.”

“I have songs on ‘The Electric Lady’ – from ‘Sally Ride’ to ‘Electric Lady’ to ‘Q.U.E.E.N.,’ and the list goes on – where I definitely thought of the gay community in terms of a community that is oftentimes discriminated against and marginalized,” she said.

“Again, when I speak about the android, it’s the other. And I think, again, you can parallel that to the gay community, to the black community, to women – we have so many things in common, and we sometimes don’t know it when we allow small things to get in the way. So this music is meant to inspire and bring wings to those who are weak and grace to those when they are strong.”

Beautifully stated, but sorry ladies, doesn’t sound like Janelle is into you like that.

    Did she actually say the words “I’m no lesbian?” or did you guys put words in her mouth? Because it sounds like you’re putting words in her mouth. This “news” article is pointless.

    Leave the woman alone for heavens sake. A great songwriter/singer is like a great director/actor, able to create, able to adapt, and able to perform in such a manor that it’s awe-inspiring. I don’t care if she’s a lesbian or not, this CD suite is off the chain.

    As she did not say as having normal sexual orientation, hence she’s lesbian.

Jill Scott’s Drunken Disaster NOT The Result Of Divorce Drama … So She Says.

Published

Jill Scott is blaming it on the alcohol … not her divorce.

Jilly from Philly had one drink (or several) too many and decided to document her mood for all to see on social media. By the looks of it, she instantly regretted it.

Scott snatched the video down within hours of posting it, but that was still long enough for fans to reach out to the songstress with cries of concern in her comment section. Jill, who recently filed for divorce from her second husband, Mike Dobson, seemed to be crying in the beginning of the video … then laughing hysterically by the end. And, of course, her tribe of supporters took notice.

Unfortunately, Scott wasn’t here for the sympathy. Instead she clapped back at those insinuating she was drowning her divorce tears in a bottle of Henny. In an IG post captioned, “Real Talk. Good Night,” Jill explained that all y’all need to chill and not everything is about her ex.

So, do you believe her? Jill and Mike were married just 15 months before Scott filed for divorce citing “inappropriate marital conduct.” Dobson then went on a media tour shading the Neo-soul singer calling her controlling and evil.

Look, Jill, if you are hitting the bottle to hide your pain we won’t blame you. Even if it is “out of your mind” we’re sure it’s still stressful and that’s ok. On the other hand, if you were justing getting super lit on a Saturday, then more power to you!
