Erykah Badu: I Found Out Janelle Monae Was Gay On The Internet! + Janelle’s Hilarious Reaction
June is National LGBT Pride Month, and singer/actress Janelle Monae shocked singer Erykah Badu with a confession following a hilarious “happy pride” Instagram video. Erykah whispered in her message to Janelle,
Happy Pride Janelle Monae, my ‘twenty.’ I had to find out over the Internet. So I guess I’m not your type. When a person doesn’t say speaks volumes. Happy Pride. You gay.
Her caption read,

Janelle hilariously revealed that Erykah was one of her first female crushes. She commented,
Hahahahaha…Well.. since we bring honest .. you were one of my first crushes .. i thought you knew .. LOVE YOU . Thank you ! Happy Pride !!!
Erykah simply replied with big eye emojis. Oop!
Janelle donned a tulle ballgown with rainbow layers last night on the BET Awards red carpet in celebration of Pride Month.
This year, Janelle confirmed her sexuality in Rolling Stone, explaining,
Being a black queer woman in America, someone who has been in relationships with both men and women…I consider myself to be a free-ass motherfu-ker.’
