Janelle Monae Wants To Mass Produce V*gina Pants
Janelle Monae may be hopping into the fashion game. The 32-year-old singer is considering creating a line of pants that became popular in her latest video. Earlier this month, she released her new video for the track, “Pynk.” In the video, Monae and others wore what fans referred to as “vagina or vulva pants.”
She says about the pants,
We may be working on that.
I’m so tickled and honored that people are talking about the Pynk pants, I think that it’s so cool to have discussions around women’s issues and women’s bodies, I think it’s amazing.
Sometimes I think people interpret those as vagina pants, they call them vulva pants, they call them flowers, but it just represents some parts of some women. There are some women in the video that do not have on the pants, because I don’t believe that all women need to possess a vagina to be a woman. I have one I’m proud of it, but there’s a lot of policing and controlling that people are trying to have over our vaginas and when you think about female genital mutilation, when you think about all these women’s issues, I wanted to make sure we were discussing these issues but we were also celebrating each other. I wanted Pynk to be a celebration of women who are unique, distinct, different, may be different from one another but when they come together they create something magical and special.
She doesn’t yet have a timeline to produce the pants.
I’m trying. I may be working on it.
