Janelle Monae perfectly danced around questions regarding Tessa Thompson romance rumors … which could be a tell tell sign that a the two really might be an item.
Rumors have been floating around for months that the singer and actress are dating. The pair further fueled romance rumors after the release of Monae’s music videos for “Make Me Feel” and “PYNK.”
In “Make Me Feel,” Monae artistically opens up about being bi-sexual, running back and forth between a man and woman, played by Thompson. “PYNK” then appeared to be the couple coming forward about their rumored relationship; Thompson’s head popping out between the legs of Monae who was dressed in a vagina pantsuit.
But when asked by The New York Times about the chatter, Monae didn’t answer the question at all. In fact, she blatantly ignored it. “I hope people feel celebrated,” she said while lauhging. “I hope they feel love. I hope they feel seen.”
She did confirm, however, that despite how her visuals are perceived, it all comes down to being an advocate for women. “I’m a girl’s girl, meaning I support women no matter what they choose to do. I’m proud when everybody is taking agency over their image and their bodies.”
So the big question is: Was Monae’s non-reaction just the reaction fans needed?
