Janelle Monae‘s sexuality continues to be a topic of conversation and gossip. The critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter released her new album, Electric Lady, last week and the buzz surrounding its release has thrust Monae into the spotlight like never before. But while many are interested in her unique fashion sense and undeniably creative approach to music-making, the starlet’s personal life is coming under more and more scrutiny.
Monae revealed in a recent interview with Pride magazine that, until recently, she was blissfully unaware that people were speculating as to whether or not she is a lesbian. But if she didn’t know before, she definitely knows now.
Monae made an appearance on “Sway In the Morning” to promote the new album, and once again, the conversation inevitably turned to the rumors that she is lesbian or bisexual.
For her part, Monae tried to give a very “politically correct” answer when Sway asked about the rumors.
