Janelle Monae was born on December first, 1985, in Kansas City, Kansas. She is an American singer, rapper, and actress. She is the only child of her mother, Janet, a hotel maid and cleaning lady, and her father, Michael, a truck driver.
Janet and Michael split early after they had Janelle, and Janet quickly remarried after that and had Janelle’s sister, Kimmy.
Janelle’s talent and love for singing showed from an early age. She grew up in a Baptist church where people would often sing hymns or sing in choirs, so she had a lot of influence and support from the people around her.
Aside from being a very talented musician, Janelle is also a very beloved and acknowledged actress. In 2016, she starred in “Hidden Figures” as Mary Jackson, alongside her co-stars Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer.
Monae also starred in the film “Moonlight” that same year alongside her co-stars Trevante Rhodes and Andre Holland. The film won an Academy Award for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Adapted Screenplay.
Moonlight was so successful that it even got an Oscar for best film with an all-black and LGBTQ cast.
At the 2018 Grammys, Janelle felt a slight responsibility to speak up for those who can’t and delivered a heartfelt message supporting the women in the music industry.
You could tell that the speech was coming straight from the heart; Monae started the speech with a powerful message: “ We come in peace, but we mean business, and those who dare and try to silence us, we offer you two words, time’s up.” - Janelle Monae, 2018.
A few weeks after her powerful message, Janelle came out as pansexual  , saying that she’s attracted to the person, not the gender. On the 5th season of The Red Table Talk with hosts Jada Pickett Smith and Willow Smith, Janelle came out as nonbinary.
She started the conversation by explaining that she is at peace with her sexuality and nobody tells her what to do when sharing parts of her private and dating life.
Since her coming out, Janelle has been relatively private about her personal and dating life. She hasn’t said anything explicitly in a couple of years.
For over five years, it has been rumored that she is dating the Veronica Mars actress Tessa Thompson, but there was no specific or direct information floating around.
Janelle has yet to identify any specifics of her relationship with the star actress. Still, she did tell sources that they care about each other deeply, and she appreciates their incredible closeness.
Janelle Monae is an American singer, six-time Grammy nominee, actress, and book author with over $12 million net worth. She is famous for her incredible music videos and her mesmerizing role in the movie Hidden Figures as Mary Jackson, a NASA mathematician.
