Janelle Monae has opened up about her sexuality and revealed she identifies as "pansexual". "If you listen to my albums, it's there".

Monae's declaration of being pan-sexual may be the singer's first public declaration but as it turns out Monae has been dropping hints about her sexuality for years-through her music.

"Make Me Feel" is a version of Sylvester's 1978 gay anthem, and the music video features actress Tessa Thompson, who is rumored to be dating Monae. I know too much about the Oscars and Oprah.

Kesha told Seventeen that she was pan, saying, "I don't love just men".

In the video, Janelle and several of her dancers wear pink trousers that look distinctly like vaginas - and at one point, actress Tessa Thompson even pops out of Janelle's trousers. Songs like "Mushrooms & Roses" and "Q.U.E.E.N.' (which was initially entitled "Q.U.E.E.R.') reference a potential lover named Mary, and she is frequently seen getting close to actress Tessa Thompson in the 45-minute 'Dirty Computer" film - described by Janelle as an 'emotion picture".
