Janelle Monae is a fucking international treasure. Her music is amazing and she’s cute as a damn button, but this year she took it to a whole new level.
Along with the help of her real-life girlfriend, actress Tessa Thompson, Janelle released music and videos that made us all grateful for these LGBTQ queens.
From the Prince inspired “Make me Feel” to the vagina appreciation “Pynk”, these two schooled us on sexy lady love, and its was amazing.
I realize that many people who read my blog probably think I’m a lesbian because of my constant lesbian appreciation posts, but in reality I just really like cool beautiful chicks who date other cool beautiful chicks, and Janelle and Tessa are both cool beautiful chicks, and this year they’ve been giving me my favorite episode of “Black Mirror” vibes (San Junipero, btw).
In a year full of so much negativity in the media, I really wanted to include something on this list that reflected just beautiful, shameless, love, and I think what Janelle and Tessa have done this year is just that.
Plus, have you heard Janelle’s latest album? It’s a jam.
