Janelle Monáe has mercury poisoning.

The 34-year-old singer, who follows a vegetarian and fish diet, would love to have a family of her own one day, but she needs to get “healthy” again first, as she’s currently suffering with metal contamination linked to eating too much fish.

Speaking to The Cut, she said: “I started feeling my mortality.”

She explained: “I don’t talk about the folks I’m dating.”

The Hidden Figures actress revealed last year she is pansexual — meaning she is attracted to a person regardless of their sex or gender — and thought it was important to open up to her parents before disclosing her preferences publicly.
