There have been some rumors swirling about weather or not Janelle Monae is gay.  Sh recently responded to those rumors in a Rolling Stone Article with the following response.

  • “The lesbian community has tried to claim me,” she says. “But I only date androids. Nothing like an android – they don’t cheat on you.”

While that’s a super weird response.  I think her point is that it should really be irrelevant.  She followed it up by saying:

  • “I’m trying to open doors for girls who look like myself and have been told they can’t sing about this or that,”

You should really check out the whole article.  They give some backround on one of the most interesting new artists to come out.  Also check out some of her style choices which have led to these gay rumors.  Although according to her it’s just her “uniform”

  • Around the time of the Diddy deal, Monáe conjured up her current image: Onstage, she wears a black suit, string tie and saddle shoes, making for a retro style that plays against her futuristic music. “I call it my ‘uniform,’” Monáe says. “My mother was a janitor and my father collected trash, so I wear a uniform too.” As for the hair, Monáe just stumbled across the look while experimenting with different styles. An Atlanta friend invented a device for her that sculpts the plume automatically. “It’s like a toaster,” Monáe says. “You just stick your head into it.”

Also cop her album The ArchAndroid.  It’s pretty dope.
