Janelle Monae has opened up about her sexuality and revealed she identifies as "pansexual".

Janelle Monae has also gone on to tell Rolling Stone that her album is dedicated to people who are having problems expressing their sexuality. According to her interview, she first identified as bisexuality, but after doing some research, she "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".

"I consider myself to be a free-ass motherfucker", explains Monáe.

In the past, Monae would dodge questions about her sexuality, telling fans and reporters alike that if they wanted answers to their questions about her sexuality, they could listen to her albums, because the "answers were there". Tessa has in fact been appearing in Janelle's videos since 2015. But she did say she is dedicating this latest work to the LGBT community. "This album is for you". Songs like "Mushrooms & Roses" and "Q.U.E.E.N.' (which was initially entitled "Q.U.E.E.R.') reference a potential lover named Mary, and she is frequently seen getting close to actress Tessa Thompson in the 45-minute 'Dirty Computer" film - described by Janelle as an 'emotion picture".

The Stranger Things and Riverdale actress came out as bisexual in May of a year ago in a tweet and admitted that while she is officially Out to the world, it's not something she comfortable with candidly talking about.
