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.
