While Kristen Stewart and Stella Maxwell hold the top spot as my favorite hip, sexy, white lady Hollywood lesbian couple, Janelle Monae and Tessa Thompson have always been my elegant black queen Hollywood lesbian couple, even though neither of them ever really addressed their couple status.
Well, until now. As if Tessa hanging out in Janelle’s vagina pants in the video for “Pynk” weren’t confirmation enough, Tessa recently talked to Net-A-Porter, and, SHOCKER, pretty much confirmed that she and Janelle are the lady couple of my dreams.
Tessa was featured as the love interest in Janelle’s two most recent music videos, “Make Me Feel” and “Pynk”, and the two have attended a million and one events together, so their coupledom isn’t exactly shocking. However, neither Tessa or Janelle has really addressed the relationship before now.
Tessa told Net-A-Porter:
I’m attracted to men and also to women. If I bring a woman home, [or] a man, we don’t even have to have the discussion…That was something I was conscientious of in terms of this declaration around Janelle and myself. We love each other deeply, we’re so close. We vibrate on the same frequency. If people want to speculate about what we are, that’s okay. It doesn’t bother me. It’s tricky because Janelle and I are just really private people and we’re both trying to navigate how you reconcile wanting to have that privacy and space and also wanting to use your platform and influence.
I absolutely fucking love these two, and while I know it’s a horrible invasion of privacy and shit, I can’t help but wonder why celebrity sex tapes I actually want to see never get leaked. Like where is the Tessa Thompson and Janelle Monae sex tape? I know, I know, I shouldn’t support leaking sex tapes, but, I mean, come on. I’m a human being!
