Speculation of Tessa Thompson‘s sexuality skyrocketed when fans saw the firey chemistry she shared with Janelle Monae in the singer’s latest visuals for several songs on her album Dirty Computer.
Then there were the visuals for PYNK, where the Creed II star’s face appeared between Janelle’s vagina-themed trousers. Watch below.
In April Monae confirmed she was pan-sexual in an interview with Rolling Stone and now Thompson is revealing where she lies sexually…and it may or may not surprise you. “I can take things for granted because of my family – it’s so free and you can be anything that you want to be. 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.”
And her relationship with the six-time Grammy nominee?
“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. 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.”
